TUTORIAL | WARM RED SMOKEY EYE

A while ago I came across this look Carli Bybel created. I loved how it looks! That is why I decided to create a more toned down version of this look. In this tutorial I'll show you step by step how I did this and which products I used.
Before I started I did my eyebrows, applied an eyeshadow base (Urban Decay primer potion) and applied a skin coloured eyeshadow (makeup geek Vanilla bean) to set the primer. If you want to know how I did my eyebrows you can check it out in this tutorial. If you want the look to be very clean and sharp I recommend to apply some tape. In this look I personally didn't do that because I wanted the result to be a bit more smokey.

First I started off with a light warm brown eyeshadow (Makeup geek Frappe) and applied this in the crease and slightly above that with a small fluffy brush (Zoeva 227).

Now I applied a deep burgundy/red shade (orphe 71) on the outer third of the lid with the same brush. It is fine if it is a little messy because most blending for this look will be done in the last part.

Here I decided to apply a deep cool toned brown eyeshadow (Makeup Geek Mocha) in the crease to create some depth. I did this again with the Zoeva 227 brush.

Here I applied a white eyepencil (NYX jumbo pencil milk). I do this to make the shadow I'm going to use on top pop more.

After blending out the pencil I applied a very pale pink eyeshadow (Urban decay naked 3 strange). As you can see a lot of color disappeared but we will fix that later on.

Here I re-applied the red and the dark brown eyeshadow. To make the red eyeshadow blend with the pale pink shadow I grabbed a fluffy flat brush (Zoeva 234) and applied the red shadow with dabbing zig zag movements. It takes a while, but blending is key.

Now it is time for the bottom lashline. This is a really important step since it ties the whole look together. First I applied the same light warm brown colour which I also used as transition color. After that I went in with the red eyeshadow and applied it on the outer third. 

Almost done! Here I applied some mascara (L'oreal telescopic), applied a liquid eyeliner (ELF) and used some eyelashes (Ardell demi wispies). Excuse the dirty lashes. Should have cleaned them a bit better before applying.

And this is the final result! I hope you liked it and that this tutorial might have been helpful!
