Today’s Makeup Look : Red Velvet
In celebration of Valentine’s Day this weekend, I created this crazy and ultra dramatic red cut-crease makeup look. This was just for fun! I wouldn’t recommend wearing this look out in public, unless you don’t mind people gawking at you—wear it at your own risk! :)
I’ve included details on how I achieved this look down below for you.
I used Morphe Brushes’ “35C” Eyeshadow Palette for this intense eye look. This is one of my favorite colorful eyeshadow palettes ever; the colors are all matte and you have a wonderful variety of pigmented shades that allow for endless possibilities—it’s a super awesome palette if you like bright colors.
After I primed my eyes, I took a thin angled brush and used shade #6 from the palette to carve out my cut-crease. Once I had the cut-crease shape and line down and it was to my liking, I gently blended the line upwards with shade #11 (I continued building and blending back and forth between the two colors until there was a nice transition between the shades).
Since I wanted an intense red cut-crease, I applied shade #23 onto the outer third of the crease line (again, I kept building and blending the red color until it was nicely diffused and vibrant).
Next, I used a thin synthetic brush with a little bit of concealer to clean up the cut-crease by tracing the concealer directly and carefully underneath the line.
Once the crease line is clean and neat, I used a flat synthetic brush to pat NYX Cosmetics’ Roll On Eye Shimmer in “Nude” all over my lid.
Going back to the eyeshadow palette, I highlighted my brow bone with shade #35, then lined my lower lash line with shade #3 and buffed out the matte black with a little bit of the red color that was used on the crease.
I also applied that red eyeshadow lightly onto the inner corners of my eyes, then patted the NYX Cosmetics shimmer on top for a glittery effect.
I coated my lashes with some mascara, then applied on a pair of fluffy lashes to complete the eye look (Born Pretty Store #15312—use code “LIENH10” for 10% off regular priced items).
For lips, first, I applied Klara Cosmetics’ Kiss Proof Lips in “05 Flaming Red” all over, then tabbed some of Gerard Cosmetics’ Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Serenity” in the center to create an ombre effect.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I love you!
