Cranberry Inspired Make -Up Look!

Hey guys! It only 21 sleeps until Christmas, do you believe it!
When it gets to this time of year, there is one eye look that I always go back to year after year, so I thought I would share it with you all!


Like I said, I always find myself wearing this look when it get to December! I just feel it adds that little something extra to a boring look and it makes me feel festive! When it gets to the week before Christmas and I do this look, I really apply the colours in a vibrant way. Normally with black glitter eyeliner instead of normal. However I was just going to work the day I done this so thought I would keep it more casual!

Here are the steps on how to do this look:
1. First apply a primer - just to insure your shadows pop and last all day. My favourite one is Urban Decay's Primer Potion
2. I then Apply MAC's Cranberry onto the lid with a flat shader brush.
3. Then in the crease with my 219 brush I apply MAC's Espresso. Sometimes if I want Cranberry to be more prominent I apply Espresso first.
4. I then use my MAC 224 brush to blend the colours and any harsh edges.
5. With my MAC 217 brush I blend MAC's Ricepaper from my brow bone into Espresso.
6. I then apply my eyeliner on my top lash line. I always use gel liner as it is my favourite but you can use which ever you prefer. I just use which ever one I pick up and in this day was Maybelline's black gel liner. One of my favourites!
7. Finally I curl my eyelashes and apply my mascara! I used Too Faced's Lashgasm.

MAC's Cranberry. How beautiful is this colour? This picture really doesn't do it justice!

MAC's Espresso: Without a doubt my favourite ever MAC shadow. Favourite shadow in general probably!

MAC's Ricepaper: Such a beautiful highlight colour!

I also think it is such a wearable look, so even if you don't wear coloured shadows, this won't be too much for you. Apologies for the cringey poses, I am so awkward!

I hope you guys like this look! If any one tries it out, let me know how you liked it!

Until next time guys, have a good one!
