1. Create the spider web

Start by applying your regular eye makeup – whatever you normally wear to make your eyes a bit dramatic.

Now, using an eyeliner, draw five lines up from the crease of your eyelid to above your eyebrow, in a fan shape. Do the same below your eye, from just below your eye until about the middle of your nose.

Draw one horizontal line out from the outer corner of your eye, about the same length as the other lines.

Connect all of the lines around your eye by drawing slightly curved lines between them. Make the curved lines join the straight lines at about a quarter-inch from the tip of the straight line. Don’t connect the two innermost lines.

Now draw a second curved line halfway down the straight lines, below each of the curved lines you previously made.

2. Add spider lashes

Apply false eyelashes to your eyelids. Look for false eyelashes that are very dramatic, and if you want to go with sparkly, or rhinestone-studded lashes, go for it!

3. Add sparkle

Attach tiny fake crystals to each spider web line joint using eyelash glue. The crystals are meant to mimic dewdrops on a spider web. Attach one to the inner corner of each eye as well.

4. Apply silver eyeliner (optional)

If your crystals aren’t noticeable enough for you, you can use some silver eyeliner to outline or highlight each crystal. Add some silver eyeliner to your eyelids and under your eyebrow as well, for extra drama.

If you just can’t ever have enough sparkle, use the silver eyeliner to highlight all your spider web lines.
