FOTD: Red Death

The next couple of posts I'm going to do are looks I did awhile ago, but just haven't had time to upload pictures for.

I just wrote this whole post and then accidentally deleted it. Which sucks...

I did this look for Deepwoods Damnation. I was super excited to do a matte red smokey eye. I think colored smokey eyes are really fun, and they're a great way to make your eye color pop. I don't do them very often because they can be tricky, and don't wear well as a day to day look.

I've been going very light on my cheeks lately, I think that especially with bright colored eye shadow blush, even subtle blush tends to look odd, unless it complements the eye shadow. And really there's just not any pink or peach tones that look very good with red eyeshadow, so I just went with a gold toned highlight.

I straight up loved how this turned out. Except for the fact that my blending brush must have had some residual shadow in it, because when I went to blend out the edges of the red they turned a bit purple which I did not want. Sugarpill's Love+ is a great eye shadow, but for some reason unless I'm really careful with it, it has a tendency towards looking pink or purple on me. Either way, I still really liked the way this turned out.
