Hi. I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how you can use makeup to appear more intimidating. When we think of things that are intimidating, most of the time we look at someone's eyes. They can pretty reveal a message with just looking at them. So what we're going to do is accentuate those. And she has nice beautiful hazel eyes. So what we're going to do is go in first with a natural color and then hit it up with some black. Nothing's more intimidating than that. All right. So let's get started. I'm just using one brush here. And we're just going to close our eyes and dust an all over color, just so the rest of the color choices that we make will hold true. And we're just going all over, so you don't have to be neat or fancy. And then I'm just going to hit it with some brown. Black is intimidating but we're going to put a little bit of brown on first so we are blending it. We still want it to look pretty. Three colors is really the way to go when you're doing an eye makeup application. It's going to be good for gradation and blendability. And now that we have a little bit of brown to mix with our black that we're going to apply, black, although we're applying it, it still just needs to be a little bit. And we're going to just put it in the crease. We have some nice creases and that's really just going to accentuate it and create a little bit of mystique. Just make sure that we're blending it on the outside properly, and doing the same to the other side. You know, you can top it off and really be intimidating depending on the occasion if you want some fake lashes to put on there. And then really pencil in that brow. And that will give it almost a superhero intimidation level. But this is just something to get you inspired and to build upon. Clean up anything that might have fallen with a finger or a tissue. And you have your basis for looking intimidating and just bringing out those eyes. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how you can look more intimidating with makeup.
