Dramatic make-up is in and it is hot, hot, hot. This type of make-up helps enhance facial features, creating a more sophisticated and mysterious look. When it comes to dramatic make-up you have two options, to enhance your eyes, or to enhance your lips.
The make-up proposed by make-up artists for the 2009 fall season appropriate for night time enters the dramatic world.

If you wish to emphasize your eyes with make-up go for heavy eyeliner topped with dark colored eyeshadow. You can choose to create a smokey eye make-up because it looks great and really make the eyes stand out.

Apply plenty of mascara as a finishing touch to add a little more glamor and mystery to your eyes. Wear a clear lip gloss to match your eye make-up and to avoid making your make-up look too heavy.


If you wish to have a more subtle approach, go for the dramatic lips make-up. Apply eyeliner on your eyes and top your eye make-up with soft neutral colors like beige. Use dark colored red lipstick on your lips to make them look luscious and sensual.
