Orange, Mauve and Blackened Red Eye Makeup Tutorial

Here's another tutorial using Sobe Botanicals Peepers Creepers Halloween eyeshadow collection.


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 Dragon's Blood to the outer lid and V by patting it on with a medium shadow brush.

 Apply Reaper to the lid and and crease by patting then sweeping outward.

 Apply Ominous to the inner corner/V by patting and sweeping outward.

Apply Ominous to the outer V/brow bone by lightly patting it on with a fluffy blending brush.

 Apply Reaper to the lower lid with an angled shadow brush.

 Blend out the harsh edges by using NYX Highlight under the brow and blending downward in a zig zag motion. For the lower lash line, use a skin tone eyeshadow or a powder foundation and blend out any harshness.

 With an angled taklon liner brush, apply Dragon's Blood to the lower lash line.

Apply black liquid liner and wing outward.

Complete the look by applying Red Cherry lashes #43 and black mascara to the lower lashes.

For the rest of what is on my face:
Eyebrows: e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadow - Raspberry Truffle (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Sobe Botanicals lipgloss - Starlet

Skin MD Shielding lotion 
Sobe Botanicals Mineral Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with Coastal Scents small classic synthetic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist Powder (applied all over face with a large powder brush) 
NYX blush - Taupe (applied just below the cheek bones to contour)
NYX blush - Silky Rose (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line)
e.l.f. Studio Baked Blush - Pinktastic (applied just above the cheek bones to highlight)
