About This Class


In this class, I will show you how to draw a beautiful eye with heavy makeup.

You will need a few graphite pencils, something for blending them (a blending stump, Q-tips), a white ink gel pen or a white opaque marker. Also, you will need a grey paper, which you don't have to purchase. I will be explaining in the video how you can make it yourself.

I am excited to have you in my class.

1. Intro: 2. Tools: Hey guys, it's Jasmine. Let me show you what I'm going to use for this. I am going to use this rentals by fabric Castile, customer 9 thousand. I'm going to use a blending stump and a curative for blinding. Also, Whiting Japan. And this marker by unipole TSCA, white marker. And is very opaque in his good for from creating the highlight over overdrawn area. And I will be using this clay by Fabriano gray paper. So I'll be drawing on graph paper. If you don't have gray paper, you don't have to purchase it. You can just create a simple image in Photoshop like this one gray image and bring it out on your drawing sheet of paper. And then you can draw over eight. 3. Part 1: Okay, so I want to draw an eye in three-quarter point of view and sort of the I is shifted over to one side a bit. And that's why the upper eyelid shouldn't be even more curvy like this. And the lower eyelid can be almost straight like this. And I'm using an aid be banned until this time because I wanted to draw an eye or with a heavy makeup, so-called smoky eye, with a glittery shadow. Okay, and now let's draw the arrows boundary. And so in this case the, the, I shouldn't be perfectly around. I mean they're Irish boundary from this point of view. But rather elliptic might this. And let you draw the tuple like this. We can fill in tuple with black. It can drive bigger if you want. And I just wanted to darken the eyelids all around like this. And to change shape like this. N12 create a shadow cast by the elite. Okay, and let's now let us draw the I lead fold here somewhere. Just curvy line parallel to the upper eyelid like this. And now I want to shade this area between the islet falls and the I within HB pencil. Because I want this part to be the brightest, brighter than the left side, because that will suggest the round shape of a lie. And here I'm using an 8-bit dental and I pressed very hard, as you can see, I can create Absolutely black color. And also here on the right side, it has to be much darker than the mid area. And now I want to use an age b here again, because this section is more exposed to light, the light. And of course I pressed very hard with an H v. But you can also use a beep. And I want to use an 8B here too dark and this lower the thickness of the skin actually in here, the deer docked. Like this animal. So here also on the left and the right side so that the mid area can be that I drew with an HB also can can appear lighter. And here under eight I want to go also if need be. And I want to blend it all with a Q-Tip carefully. You can see displayed in the upper, in the top left corner, when I use all the time. So here I want to use a five-page anti-drug, the spokes to radiate from the center of the pupil. Like this. Such as rounded spokes between the pupil and the iris boundary like this. And of course, the iris should be much lighter in the lower area and darker here in the upper area. So that's why I use this. Here. I use an a b. Ok, let's continue with this spokes. So you can change the pressure on your aid on your 58 pencil to create some patterns. This, it doesn't have to be five age, it can be for age or 3H. Okay. And now let's blend it all with a Q-Tip. And very carefully, you can see how it becomes smooth now. And I want to use an HB here to blend the edge between the iris boundary and spokes. Like this to make them kind of flow into each other. Because the edge between them is still too sharp. And I press hard next to the iris boundary and I just release the pressure as a shade inwards towards the pupil. And I want to shade this upper areola bit more net. Okay, and now let's shade the sclera. Is the white of the eye, the whites of the eye. And I want to use a 38 here. So the sclera here in the upper areas shouldn't be white or only next to the iris boundary. So the rest should be shaded. And here I'm querying kinda shadows cast by the upper eyelashes. Okay, let's use a wide banter to color here the sclera next to the arrows bone boundary. You can use any other color printer doesn't have to be PRISMA color Premier, or any other opaque medium structures. So guage or, or even paint some Bastille. A marker. Also lets create here some highlights over the iris using white colored pencil. So something like this over some spokes here in the lower area. Okay? And I want to use an AB here to darken a little bit more like this. And to draw more eyelashes. Grow, grow downwards like this. Or we can cedar flight, they reflection or the sclera like this. And now let's use a bit of the white marker. Pkc marker can be easily applied over the graphite or the color pencils. As you can see. It shows very well. And if I want to blend the edges or just stop on it while it's what. So you can create a highlights wherever you want. And if you use this marker, you will be able to eliminate the highlights which are nail or would any other pencil even while it's wet and also when it dries up. Also so you can correct any mistakes. And you can see that I have applied it here in the corner over the sclera. So I have an enlarged the sclera this way. And I can easily shape it with my pencil now. And I just want to blend the edges of this marker like this. Okay, here I want to create a dot and the bottom, this will indicate the wetness of the eye. So you can see like this. And just to, to lighten up these, some of the spokes with a white bento. 4. Part 2: Okay, now before we draw the eyelashes, we should shed the skin above the eye. But before that let us draw the eyebrow sellers. We can shade the skin between the eyebrows and I and I think the drawing of an aisle looks much better with an eye, bro. I'm using an HB pencil here for the eyebrows. And so we should draw, do hears and direction there grow. I feel this side is too thick. This I want to raise and to mobile of it downwards. And I just want to draw that typical female arched eyebrow. Saw summation. We have to draw the strokes and the direction of the hairs growth like this. You can check it up in your mirror or some reference borrows. Or you can just do the same as me. Okay? I'm doing I'm doing this pre-fabs. You just take your time and pause the video and don't rush. Okay, something like this. And I want to, I just want to blend it all with acute dip like this. You can see it becomes, became soft. And I just want to create here in the lower area to make these hairs much darker because they always get less light under this bro rate like this. Okay. And now want to darken it is here on the right side. And I will make the section in the middle bit lighter, appear lighter, which was suggested around us of the head. Okay, now we can start shading the skin. I'm using it to age and circular motions. This is so-called the circle ism technique, which means that we have apply tiny overlapping circles in order to create a smooth texture like this. Was, as I mentioned, I'm doing it very fast. Just take your time. And here I want to also to shape the bridge of the nose. So actually the right side of the nose a bit so that the area next to it can be highlighted later. And don't press too hard. So this two, H and b, while sharpened, But router, you should use kinda around tape of a pencil and let's blend it with the tissue. Okay. And I want to I want to blend it with a Q-Tip. As you can see, I have a lot of graph. I'm like Q-Tip and I can't see it, so I don't have to draw here. And here in this highlighted area under the arch of the eyebrow has to be the lightest. So that's why I press less. And here next to the eyelid fall in has to be much darker. And let's blend it all around like this. Okay. Let me just check my white ink job ban. I'm not sure that it still works. It works. So this is how we create that glossiness of the skin or actually of the makeup shadow by applying dots with a white ink job ban and with a wide marker. And I just want to shade here next Today I lead fall, fall with an HB. And also I apply circle MSM technique. So here I want to make it much darker and I press less and less as I work away from the islet fault. And of course, we have to create that gradient transition. Because this gray shades should become gradually lighter and lighter as we shade upwards, towards the highlights. Said the difference, shade shouldn't have a clear edge between them, but they should flow into each other gradually. Just to darken it a bit more like this. So here I pressed harder next to this, black dark areas, NIR lessen the pressure. Shade a wave. A little bit more here in this sunken area. And let's blend it with a Q-Tip. And now let's create the highlights with a wide until here on our end. So we have to shade this. We have to make it much lighter than the color of the paper. And just press lightly and carefully. This so this also this white area, or very light area has as to gradually disappear into the basic tone of the skin under it. And I just want to shade here this area next to the temple so that the highlight can be even more prominent. And I go back when I see something that I want to add something or change something, just go back. And you can see the benefits of drying on gray paper. So the wide areas pop and there look more eye-catching. And languages to dark and days areas a bit more. So field they're not dark enough. So it's always easier to dark and to add more shade and raise k Here. Again, I feel good. This eyebrow looks better. 5. Part 3: Now the image is dark in here, this area a bit more like this. As we blend or draw, work on it. Somehow this dark pencil become lighter, graphite as a kind of erased or removed from this area. So we have to apply it again. Not sure that you have to, but I see it. It can be much darker dots why I'm playing more fit. Okay. And let's blend it with the blending stump here. The area between this makeup and skin under it. So it has to kinda gradually disappear into the basic color skin and hear all around. And also here it is, sunken areas and everything that I was drawing. I just want to blind. And I just want to improve on this smooth gradient here. Because this area right above the eyelid fault seems to be too bright. And I just wanted to darken a little bit more. As I mentioned, we can always dark anymore. Necessary with a Q-Tip. Okay, now it's finally time for the eyelashes. And I'm using an API for the eyelashes. And you have to draw it down with quick confident strokes like this in one pass like this. And of course in the direction of the flow at some drawing prayer long eyelashes because actually I want to draw this fake eyelashes for this kind of makeup. We can often see this. Fake eyelashes, so darn much longer. And you can see how quick, confident strokes like this. As I mentioned, you do not do this. You don't have to draw this fast. Now we can also draw the lower eyelashes. This one is too long. I just wanted to erase a bit of it. Okay. And I'm also using a1b0 here for a lower eyelashes that are usually naturally thinner. But let's suppose she has some masker and their stick together with the masker. So we have to drop them like this. Okay, and now we can blend the tops of the eyelashes with the blending stump to make them a little bit blurry and thinner. And now here I want to add a little bit more shade. Here right above the eyelid fall with an age b, c, u, we can still dark and eight and change something if necessary. And now we can actually apply at this job Ben or amusing. And I just apply lot of tiny dots. You can also use unique Boesky. Also 0.7. is also great. And just apply a lot of tiny dots here over these areas. So you can see. And to stop the dots if you don't want them to be too bright. Or a bit like this. So particularly for tuning areas. This is all. So just like this. Okay, so here we can add more details. Change wherever you want. And I'm curious to see and let me know that you have drawn it down. I'd like to see it. Thank you so much for watching. I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial. Police chief god, my tutorials.
