Love+ for red tutorial!
I’m sorry it’s been so quiet on my blog for the past few days, I have been so busy! I have been doing a lot of looks lately but I didn’t have time to make a blogpost about them so I’m going to work on that as soon as possible.
To make it up to you I figured I’d just put a new tutorial online!
When I made this look I figured I might as well do a tutorial for it. I already knew I wanted to use a pair of Katy Perry lashes I hadn’t used before and like I told you *here*, I just needed a good excuse to use my brand spankin’ new red eyeshadow from Sugarpill. It turned out to be a pretty red look with green and gold accents. So basically very, very christmassy. When I was editting the pictures I got more and more convinced this look is totally appropriate for christmas, lol. But I don’t care, I like the colours and that’s all that matters, right?

As usual I started with a clean eye and eyelid.
Apply a base to the eyelid, I used Max Factor Colour Precision Eyeshadow in Pearl Beige. Blend the base on the entire eyelid.
I used an 88 Mirage palette from Coastal Scents and used this orangy colour with a fluffy brush. I used it in the crease. Make sure you blend it well!
Take a darker colour, it’s a bit between brown an orange. I used this in the crease too but a bit lower to deepen the colour in the crease a bit more.
After that I used the black eyeshadow from the palette to deepen the colour out even more. Make sure you blend this very well.
I used another warm toned brown shade to use on the outer half of the moving lid.
Then I took Love+ from Sugarpill. It’s such a great vibrant colour and insanely pigmented, love it! I used this all over the moving eyelid. The brownish colour in the outer corner of the eyelid makes the red a bit darker.
I used this “Exquise” pigment/glitter. I got it from my friend Annigje a logng time ago and I don’t remember what brand it is. You don’t really need to do this step, it’s just for a little pale gold glittery effect on the inner corner on top of the red eyeshadow.
I used this highlighter form the Mirage palette. It’s a light colour with a golden shimmer. I applied this colour under the brow and blended it with the orange brown colour in the crease. Make sure you blend it well because otherwise this colour tends to be a bit too strong on the shimmer.
I used a dark brown eyepencil from Gosh on my lower lashline, it’s called Metallic Brass and it has tiny golden flecks in it.
On top of that I applied Sugarpill Junebug pigment, I only used this dark green colour on the outer half of the lashline.
I used Sugarpill Lumi on the inner part of the lower lashline.
I figured a little touch of glitter would be in order, so I used this glitterliner from Sleek on my inner eye corner.
And now it’s time for eyeliner, you can use a liquid one or a gelliner. I used Catrice Black Jack with Jack Black.
I used another liner from Sleek, this silver version. I only used a little bit of it below the wing of the eyeliner, just for a silver detail.
I used a pair of Katy Perry lashes called Sweetie Pie. These look pretty natural so they’re suitable for a lot of looks.
As a finishing touch I used a black eyeliner on my waterline. I used it on my upper and lower waterline.
That’s it for the eyes!
For my face I used these products, a foundation by No. 7, a highlighter from Essence and a blush from Everyday Minerals.
I also used some red colour for the lips. I like using a bold colour for lips and I don’t care if the eyes are already pretty intense. But if that’s not your style you can use a nude colour for the lips.
And here some pictures of the result, you can also see the result in *this* blogpost.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and founf it helpful. Red eyeshadow can really be wearable, all you have to do is make a nice combination. Although I have to say this look is quite “christmassy”, I still think it’s pretty nice.
I hope you think so too, please let me know in the comments!
