Step 1 - Eyeshadow


Apply a black eyeshadow to the centre of your eyelid and then smoke it out the inner corners and outer corners of your eyes. Then apply a bright red hue to the crease.

Red doesn’t have to be a super edgy colour –– you can pair it with your traditional wear too! This red eye makeup look uses classic elements to make the red eyeshadow more wearable. Remember to go heavy on the eyebrow products for this one too –– it requires those bold brows to show off a little.


How To Recreate This Look


Step 1 - Eyeshadow


Apply a shimmery shade of gold or pink to the centre of your lids. Add a little bit of a dark hue to the outer corners of your eyes and blend away. Add a deep red hue to your crease and sweep it into the inner corner of your eyes and the outer corner too (where the deeper colour ends).
