Tutorial: Red rebel


Tutorial time! I love red shadow, but I rarely use it, 'cos I hardly ever use bold colors in public nowadays. But now I wanted something bold, and this this look for you!


Products used:Lime Crime Eyeshadow helper primer
Lime Crime Fly Dragon Fly (lid, crease, blending)
Sugarpill Love+ (lid, crease, blending)
Sugarpill Tako (highlight, middle of the lid)
Mascara
MAC #48 lashes


 As always, start with priming your lid:

Then apply red shadow to both inner and outer corners of the lid:

Then make a "bridge" to either to the crease or slightly above it, like I did:

Blend upwards with red:

Apply light (or white) shadow to highlight and also to the middle part of the lid:

Then take a small brush and apply black shadow to the most outer part of the lid, and also to the inner corner:

Then apply red shadow to lower lashline (or if using red on lower lashline makes you look too sick, try using black instead):

Apply a hint of black to lower outer corner (or try if you used black, add a hint of red):

Apply mascara (sorry for my clumpy lashes, bad mascara choice):

Then apply false lashes (and eyeliner) if you want (mine are MAC #48, maybe not the best choice):


And tadah, look is done!


 Pair with nude lips or red lips, and you're done!

  1. I love this!
    It's like a sexual peppermint.

    I never wear red outside either....I'm going to wear it more though, because I absolutely love red shadow. If people stare, oh well.

  11. Mielenkiintoista, että tuo näyttää hyvältä vaikket häivyttänyt mustaa sen kummemmin! :) Punainen näyttää kyllä minusta erityisen hyvältä silmämeikeissä ja varsinkin punainen & musta -yhdistelmä on voimakas ja dramaattinen. Hyvin juhlava lookki. :)
