Smokey Red Plum and Pink Eye Makeup look + Picture Tutorial

This look was created using Sobe Botanicals eyeshadows. :-)



Click below for the tutorial!

 Start by applying your favourite eye primer. I used Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Eye Primer. Then apply a very sticky base (Sobe's Stick It!, Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girls Cosmetics Glitter Glue all work great).

 Apply Sobe Botanicals Snapped to the bottom half of the lid (closest to the lash line) by patting.

 Apply Sobe Botanicals Allegory to the top half of the lid and crease by patting.

 Apply Sobe Botanicals Sexpot just above the outer crease and outer V blending onto Allegory.

 Using a small shadow brush, apply Sobe Botanicals Dew Drop to the inner V by patting and blending outward.

 Apply Sobe Botanicals Sexpot to the lower lid (don't bother getting it on the lower lash line) using an angled shadow brush.

 Using an angled taklon brush, swipe Sobe Botanicals Snapped, onto the lower lash line and slightly blending downward.

 Soften the edges by blending all the harshness with a fluffy blending brush and a skin tone shadow.

Apply a black powder to the upper lash line and wing out, using an angled taklon brush.

 Apply BH Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Night to the waterline.

Complete the look by applying mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

For the rest of what is on my face:
Eyebrows: Sobe Botanicals Fill Me In eyebrow powder Raven and Brunette mix (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Sobe Botanicals - TropiCoral

Skin MD Shielding lotion 
Sobe Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with Coastal Scents bionic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist Powder (applied all over face with a large powder brush)

  1. Those colors looks great with your eyes!

  2. the blurring of the shadows is perfect, only give you some advice, the tabs on the ends you are falling, lift them up with a curling iron.

    1. Tabs on the ends? No idea what you're talking about.

    2. Possibly she means eye lashes and is suggesting curling them?

    3. Well, if that is what she means, lash curlers don't work on my lashes.

  3. Red and plum is my favourite combo - this looks so good with your eye colour. I know what colours I'll order from Sobe first!! Loving these tutorials!

  4. Love the tutorial! I am always thinking how does she do that application... thanks. Your looks are a highlight to my day :)

  5. Bright yet sultry, I didnt realize u used shadow as liner at first, nice changeup! Love the necklace, time to visit ebay.......

  6. Beautiful and seems so easy to do! His tutorials bring me inspiration. Love it. Thanks.

  7. This is without a doubt, my favourite make up of yours! :D *speechless*
