Full Answer

Wow Makeup Styles notes that eyes have the best potential for experimenting with exotic makeup. Trying on false eyelashes or using bright colors and patterns for eye shadow is a good place to start. The website suggests that warmer months in spring or summer are a good time to try new exotic makeup styles. In warm weather, less clothing is necessary, which allows the opportunity for more attention to be drawn to the makeup rather than the clothes. Animal markings or colors can add a very exotic look to makeup, but such patterns are best experimented with during evening hours or casual outings. Bright or animal-themed makeup colors are not recommended for office or business settings as they can be very dramatic and distracting.

Glitter, shine and smoky colors can also be used to create an exotic look. Even though exotic makeup is applied more heavily than it is in a casual style, it's important to not go overboard when experimenting. Exotic makeup styles should be eye-catching, but they should also be complementary to a face, rather than overwhelming it.
