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)
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!

  9. Oooh, I have a pair of those lashes and was actually surprised they look so good on you. I think they're a great choice with this look. Need to wear mine now!! Exciting x

  10. Very cool Also, here's a link to a cool starry make-up design that I think you should try!

  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. :)

  12. You are the best at make-up... this is just unbelievable! I love it!!
