Dramatic Eyeshadow Ideas

Updated on April 29, 2015

Some nights you want to make a statement with your makeup. What better way to do that than with bold, sexy eyes?

This hub will give you dramatic eyeshadow ideas, especially for brown, pink, and blue eyeshadows. These fun eye makeup ideas are especially good to wear to nightclubs, bars, and parties.

Palette Recommendation

If you plan to wear a lot of dramatic eye looks in different colors, instead of buying a lot of small eyeshadow kits, think about investing in a large palette, like Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Eye Shadow Palette (above right).
