FOTD | Seeing Red

Hola! As I was doing my makeup this morning I noticed I was actually getting into it and having some fun... unheard of when you're a busy college student in the middle of midterms! I ended up experimenting a little with this dark burgundy eyeshadow I have. It turned out really nice (surprisingly) so I thought I would share how to make a more unexpected neutral eye.

I started off with my typical foundation/concealer/eyebrows routine that I've mentioned in multiple videos and posts. I then used a standard larger eyeshadow brush to first press the burgundy eyeshadow on my lids. Then I swept into my crease so it had more of a gradient of dark to light the farther you got from my lashes. You don't need much of such a dark eyeshadow but it really adds a nice color if you have more yellow-toned light skin. I then tightlined my top lashes with brown pencil eyeliner and used brown liquid eyeliner to create a small wing. Next, I placed a shimmery champagne eyeshadow to my inner corners to open up the eye. To finish up, I swept a more natural mascara on my top lashes.

For face, I used a dusty rose blush to make me look alive instead of the zombie I am in the morning. I used a more natural pinky-red lipstick that was very close to the blush color to finish up!

This is an easy and quick face to do when you're in a hurry and still need to look professional or nice for whatever reason (who likes to adult anyway?). This can easily be switched out for another color such as a greenish-gold for you brown-eyed folks or a rusty-orange for baby blues. Other options for green eyes: any color purple or a shimmery sage-gold.

Peace out girl scouts!
