Marjolein´s Smokey Red
A long time ago I saw *this* look from Marjolein, a.k.a. The Art Is Makeup, on Facebook. I was immediately smitten with the brown and red colours and I really wanted to do something like it. I actually forgot a bit about these pictures and suddenly I ran into this unfinished blogpost. So I finished it as fast as possible, I hope you like it.
I added a little touch of gold in the inner corner but I think, other than the gold, this look is a lot like what I wanted to do with the inspiration Marjolein gave me.
To keep the look a little softer I used black eyeshadow for eyeliner. Smokey looks can be quite soft and I was hoping the eyeshadow liner would add to the softness of the look. I think that worked out pretty good, what do you think?
I really like the shimmery highlight under the brow, it’s from the Kat von D palette. It’s a nice coincidence that I got this palette from the lovely lady who also gave me the inspiration for this look: Marjolein a.k.a. The Art Is Makeup. 😀
Fullface pictures turned out a bit different than I had hoped. It’s because the sun was already setting and that always screws up the lighting in my pictures a bit. My lips were actually a bit more shimmery and I don’t remember them this pink. Oh well, I’ll just have to live with it. 😉
Thanks so much to Marjolein for both the palette I used to make this look and the awesome inspiration. Please visit her *blog* because she does amazing things with eyeshadow.
What do you think of this look? Do you like the colours? I like how the speck of gold from sugarpill’s Goldilux keeps drawing attention to itself. Do you ever use black eyeshadow as eyeliner?
