I really don’t understand what it is about Greece? Everything seems so beautiful and majestic about them! Though I have never been there, but heard a million times of many beautiful Greek women in Greek mythology. Who on earth does not know Helen of Sparta, the most beautiful women in the world. All known for their power, grace and ethereal beauty!
Greek goddesses are known for their natural beauty and sophistication! They have gorgeous luminous olive like skin complexion with perfect body shapes. It is definitely worth to try their greek eye makeup and truly live their lives for once! But, thinking of how to achieve the look? Not to worry as we bring you a gorgeous and dramatic Greek Goddess- inspired eye makeup tutorial in simple 8 steps. So, now is the time for you to awake your inner goddess senses.
Greek Goddess Eye Makeup Tutorial:
Let us have a look at the step-wise Greek Goddess eye makeup tutorial:
Step 1: Conceal And Create An Illusion Of Deeper Set Eyes
Apply a good eye cream to the under eye area and above the eyelids to moisturize the areas. Here, I have used the Banjaras Under Eye Cream. Now apply a concealer to hide ant dark circles and lift the eye area. Here, I have used the Kryolan Derma Camouflage concealer. Use a compact powder, which is translucent or tinted to set the concealer to prevent creasing.
You are done with concealing. Now let’s begin the eye makeup. Take a matte orange-brown eyeshadow and apply it to the crease of your eyes. This will add dimension and bring out your crease area to give an illusion of deeper set eyes like the Greek women. Here, I have used the Kryolan Blush in Mocha as an eyeshadow.
Step 2: Blend The Crease Area Again For A Soft Eye Look
Take a matte brown eyeshadow which is 3 shades darker than your skin tone. Apply it in the crease area slightly heavier than the previous step. This can be achieved easily by using a fluffy blending brush and imitating a soft wiper motion. Now apply a darker matte brown eyeshadow to deepen the crease area of your eyes further more. Take a clean blending brush without any eyeshadow and blend the crease area once again. This helps to remove any harsh edges and gives a soft look to the eyes. Here, I have used the Elf Day on the Beach eyeshadow palette for medium and dark matte brown eyeshadows.
Step 3: Apply Shimmery Gold Eyeshadow
Apply a shimmery, glittery gold eyeshadow base to the center of the eyelid area. This base will act as a medium to hold the eyeshadow to be applied later and also makes it appear brighter. Here, I have used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade of Bold Gold.
Step 4: Get A Maximum Color Intensity On The Eyelids
Apply a yellow gold eye shadow in shimmer finish over the cream eyeshadow base that is applied in the previous step. It is best to avoid pale or lighter gold eye shadow as it will not give an inspiring Greek makeup look. Apply the eyeshadow in patting motions to obtain maximum color intensity. Start applying from the inner corner of the eye and stop the eyeshadow at the center of the lid. Here, I have used the Lakme eyeshadow palette in Tanjore Rush for the yellow gold shimmery eye shadow.

Step 5: Soften The Eyeshadow Color
Use a fluffy blending brush and soften the edge of gold eyeshadow with the brown eyeshadows applied earlier.
Step 6: Create Winged Eye Effect
Take a black liquid eyeliner and start drawing a thick winged eye liner. Draw the line from the innermost corner of the eye to the outermost corner of your eye area, creating a sharp pointed wing. Here, I have used the Kryolan Black eye liner. Then, line the lower lash line and waterline with a black creamy kajal pencil. Apply a light champagne highlighter shade to the brow bone area to highlight your eyes. Here, I have used the Revlon shadow links eyeshadow in the shade of sand.
Step 7: Create A Fish Tail Eye Shape
Take the same yellow gold eyeshadow with an angled eyeshadow brush. Now line your lower lash line in a very thick manner and wing it outward to create a fish tail shaped eyeliner look.
