Wearing The Unwearable: Red Eyeshadow

Hello my lovelies!




In honor of International Women’s Day this past Wednesday, I decided to create an eye look featuring red toned eyeshadows. In case some of you aren’t aware, red is the designated color used to honor women on this day, and I felt inspired to create something to celebrate us!

Let’s get started:

Eye Lid

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with powder.
  2. Highlight the brow bone with shadow one. This can also be used for any cleanup.
  3. Blend shadow two all throughout the eye area. This is our transition shade to help all other colors blend smoothly.
  4. On a detailed blending brush, blend shade three into just the crease area. This is a bright color, so be sure to blend this thoroughly, and try not to be too messy with it. Like step two says, go in with shadow one again for any cleanup.
  5. Pack Shade four onto the outer corner for some slight dimension. .
  6. Wet a flat shader brush with shadow five and pack all over the lid.
  7. Place shade six into the inner corner and tear duct.

Lower Lashline

  1. Blend shade two all the way from inner to outer corner.
  2. Pack shadow three close to the eyelashes for definition.
  3. Place shade four on the outer corner and blend inward about a third of the way.
  4. Place a bronze eyeliner into the waterline.
