Get The Look:
  • Apply your face primer before you start to apply your eye-shadow primer that way it would have sunken into your skin and your will be ready for you to apply your foundation. 
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • So to start off with the eyeshadow I applied a black eyeshadow in the inner corner and outer corner, make sure to apply some in the crease connecting the black. Be sure to leave a space in the middle
  • In the middle of the lid apply a red eyeshadow and blend into the black. 
  • I then applied a silver shadow above the crease to blend it out.
  • Now taking a fluffy brush blend the colors together.
  • I applied matte colors over the colors on my lid to help keep them in place and make it pop.
  • Now apply a highlight under the brows. I used a flesh tone eyeshadow.
  • I lined my upper lid with a black liquid liner, tight lined using a black eyeliner pencil.
  • I applied a coat of my favorite mascara.
  • Using a stippling brush I applied my tinted moisturizer. Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck and conceal any imperfections.
  • Taking a contour brush and  bronzing powder begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jawline. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a peach blush to the apples of your cheeks. 
  • For the lips I went with a nude lipstick to keep the focus on the eyes.
