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

  1. I am so impressed with your knowledge of all these products! You do a beautiful job : )

    I'd like to see what your favorite mascara is.

  2. I learn a lot from your amazing understanding of beauty products! I'd love to know what your favorite mascara is. Beautiful model, by the way!

    1. You are so sweet! Thank you,Lois! My favorite mascara is BareMinerals Flawless Volumizing Mascara.. It's a little pricey so I usually stock up when they have a sale. A couple less expensive options I like are Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes and a new one from Revlon Lash Potion Volume +Length.
