Makeup Look of the Week – Cranberry Smoky Eye

Even though the weather is still blazin’ hot here in southern California, I was in the mood for all things FALL related…

So I painted my nails with Revlon Vixen polish….
Enjoyed a cup of Starbucks VIA Pumpkin Spice latte…
And set to work creating this cranberry smokey look, inspired by MakeupbyTiffanyD

Products Used:
 Lorac Pro Palette Eyeshadows – Cream, Taupe, Garnet, Deep Purple, Espresso, Lt. Bronze & Gold
Idyllic MAC Paintpot

Stila Smudge Stick – Damsel (black/brown)
Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eye Liner – Blackest Black
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil – 1999

NYX Lipliner Pencil – Mauve
L’Oreal Lipstick – Gilded Pink
MAC Lipglass – Viva Glam VI

How to get this look:
*Apply primer all over lid up to brow brone
*Optional: Apply a red-based cream shadow such as Idyllic MAC Paintpot all over the lid up to the crease
*Apply Lorac Cream shadow as brow highlight
*Apply Lorac Taupe shadow in the crease and blend
*Press Lorac Garnet shadow all over the lid, on top of the red-based cream shadow
*Apply Lorac Deep Purple to the outer 1/3 of the lid
*Apply Lorac Espresso to the outer crease and blend. Be careful not to bring this dark shade up too far!
*Go back and use the Taupe to blend out any harsh edges above the Espresso
*Go back and apply a little more Garnet shadow to the center of the lid
*Apply Lorac Gold shadow to the inner corner of the eye but not going all the way into the tear duck area
*Apply Lorac Lt Bronze shadow to the inner tear duct and blend into the Gold
*Apply Urban Decay 1999 or any other medium plum liner to bottom lash line
*Working from the outside in, apply Lorac shadows in Deep Purple, Garnet and Gold along the bottom lash line.
*Apply a thin line of Milani liquid eye liner along top lashes
*Apply Stila Smudge Stick eye liner to water line along the bottom lash line
