Being a red head there are a lot of makeup looks that do not flatter us. Our pale skin is very sensitive to what colors, and how much of each color our tone can handle. Now I have seen some smokey eye looks that look absolutely gorgeous on red heads. And it can easily over power us however. When I do a smokey eye I stay away from blacks and grey's because they wash me out. I like doing a smokey eye with different shades of purple. For red heads with blue eyes I think purple looks absolutely stunning.
I had so many pictures of this look but really, who wants to see a thousand pictures of my mug. So lets get down to how to do this look.
Prime your lid with concealer
. I used this
. Then I use this
as a transition color any peachy
color will do though. Then I took a light wine
) color and blended it in my crease. Starting from the outer corner to the inner corner. You do that so the outer part of your eye is darker. Then I grabbed my darkest wine
) and kept that to my outer corner color. Then you take the peach shade and blend.
For your lower lashes I used a really light hand with a lilac color. I then used an electric purple liner.
I did a cat eye with my favorite gel liner. I went to the bottom lashes and blended a little more.
Hope you like!
