Easy Step by Step Guide to Sultry Eyes with Dior Rose Charmeuse

I just featured the Dior Rose Charmeuse palette recently. Please feel free to check out the review and swatches. Today, I’d like to show you a very easy and simple evening look. It’s sultry and sexy and I used both my favourite shades from the palette. The 2 shades and caught my attention in the first place. Yup, it’s the hot pink and black combo. Hope you like it!

 

Look2 step by step

 

  1. Pat the hot pink all over your lids
  2. Use a small brush or a flat eyeliner brush to draw a V shape at the outer corner of your eyes using the black. Here, I use MAC214
  3. Blend out hard edges of the black, but make sure not to overdo it. It might make the pink look muddy
  4. Here, I use the MAC214 again, with the leftover black on my brush to smudge my lower lash line (outer half only)
  5. I used the hot pink to pat over my inner lids again, to the intensity I wanted. I also highlighted my brow bones
  6. Add lots of mascara and you’re done. You can always add black liner and false lashes to up the intensity but I wanted it to stay soft

I paired this look with Diorblush Tender Coral and soft pink lips (Dior Charmante). On my nails is Guerlain Lou-Ling. Here is the final look.

I hope you’ll give this simple look a try! I think it would be great for a sexy Valentine’s Day look too šŸ™‚

  • Pretty! I like that it’s grown-up sultry, not teenage punk rock. (Though nothing wrong with the latter.)

    That Charmante lipstick is lovely on you. xo

    • Thanks peach_ šŸ™‚ Punk rock reminds me of that crazy look I did for femme boulevard December edition. Lol! Charmante looks more pigmented here than in real life though. It’s very sheer…

  • Nida

    pretty look! eyeliner in a must thing for me so I am gonna add up the eyeliner when I will try this.

    • Cool! I’d love to see how it looks on you šŸ™‚

  • Hanny Daforcena

    OMG OMG I NEED to try this soon! It’s a more sultry, grown-up version of what I usually lean to!

    • Glad you like it, Hanny. Can’t wait to see your version!

  • How pretty! I’ve tried a look like this before and really liked it…need to pull it out again! šŸ™‚

    • Hey Larie. I think this technique suits nearly everyone, especially those with monolids. I love this sort of color placement because it elongates my round eyes šŸ™‚ It would be awesome to see how it looks on you!

  • Hi Lily,
    This is a helpful post. I saw the pretty Dior Palette but really confused how I should wear it. I think now I have an idea how I should be using this one šŸ™‚

    • Hi Meryl, I’m glad you have an idea of how to use this palette now! Enjoy šŸ™‚

  • I really like how this looks on you! Thanks for the tutorial, Lily! Your cheekbones look very sculpted in the picture, and the eyes are definitely sultry šŸ™‚

    • Aaw thanks Sunny. Ah, the cheeks. Notorious does help šŸ™‚

  • Really great job on the tutorial and pictures, Lily!! šŸ˜€

    • Thanks Becca šŸ™‚

  • Parita

    I love how balanced the entire look is along with lipstick and the blush!

    • Thanks Parita. Hope you’ll give it a try šŸ™‚

  • Liz

    I really like this! Damn, now I have to rummage in the stash to see if I have a similar pink. Maybe the rose shade from NARS Grand Palais would suffice, even though they’re quite different.

    • Yay! I’m so glad you like this šŸ™‚ It works with so many colour combinations. It’s the colour placement that works for me.

    Lily, I *so* appreciate the step-by-step photo tutorials. I must try this. Perhaps I’ll even make a dent in one of the 3 pink eyeshadows I’ve accumulated (2 included in palettes, 1 from a beauty box).

    • It’s such a great satisfaction to put a dent to something. The only thing I could put a dent to is face powder. I haven’t been able to do that to an eye shadow or a blush yet.
