A couple of days ago I had a little extra time before heading out to Uni so I decided to put a little more effort into my make up and went for my favorite way to wear reds on my eyes:
What I did was prime my eyes with Maybelline 24h Color Tattoo in 65 Pink Gold (Inked in Pink in the states). Then I blended MAC Vapour over my entire lid. MAC Cranberry went into the crease and on the outer third. Then I used the dark matte burgundy from the Sleek Bohemian palette to darken the outer corner. Last but not least a slightly flicked half line with my beloved MAC Feline. On the bottom lid I smudged some more Cranberry and lined the outer third of of the lower waterline with Feline. On my lashes I used Maybelline The Rocket which I still don’t like. It has dried in a little bit and it does perform a little better now, but it still doesn’t hold the curl the way I would like, especially on my left eye which is not as rounded as right eye and the lashes are somewhat straighter. I am this close to just throw the Rocket out.
On the rest of my face I kept it light and neutral: I used MAC’s Perfect Cheek on my, well, cheeks (d’uh) and MAC’s Creme d’Nude on my lips.
What do you think about red on the eyelids? Yes? No? Chime in in the comments below!
