A quick disclaimer, I am in no way a make up artist, I probably do a million things wrong. This is just the way that I create this particular look.
This is one of my favourite looks. I've been a bit confused about the colour of my eyes for years but I honestly would really like them to be green and by using red shades for eye shadow I find that the green tones in my iris really "pop." This look is essentially a more intense version of a FOTD that I did recently.
I used my Body Shop Eyeshadow Brush and Eyeshadow Blender Brush with the Sleek Sunset Palette like this:
I start by packing in some of the highlighter in the corner of my eye, across the first section of my lid, onto my brow bone and along part of both lash lines.
This shimmery peach shade is one of my favourites from the Sunset Palette and I'm terrified that I'm about to hit pan!
Add the coppery red tone across the entire lid. I use my crease to create the initial shape and then work down towards my lash line. I can then assess how far to go up and blend it out slowly.
Define the lid shape by working the deep red into the crease and alone the edge of the shadows to create a fairly sharp wing. I also added a little under my lash line to carry the wing downwards.
Of course you can create any shape you like but I find this looks really cool and aggressive. Not for the faint hearted!
Take a fluffy blending brush and gather up some more of the highlight shade and push it out from the corner of your eye into the rest of the design, blending away any harsh lines as you go. The eyeliner here is completely optional. I feel like without the liner you get a more "editorial" feel to the look but you know how I love my black liquid liner!
Then it's simply a case of adding your favourite mascara! It's easiest to wear this with a nude lip but where's the fun in that?
This is elf lipstick in Sociable and the bright red beanie than my boyfriend's Nan knitted for me!
Well there we are! I really hoped you liked this look and I'd love to see your interpretation if you try it out! Tomorrow is Cool Winter and I can't wait to play with my elf 100 Palette.
P.S. I didn't use any primer or base. Sleek is just that good.
P.P.S. I know I have weird wonky eyes and I need an eyebrow wax. Sorry.
