This look was created using some eyeshadows and blushes from Moi Mineral Cosmetics.

For a while now I've been using Coastal Scents Synthetic Brushes and I LOVE them! So I'll mention which brushes I used through out the tutorial. 
Any part where you see me using the same brush more than once, I always wipe any excess shadow off of the brush before applying a new shadow. I use cloth diapers as my brush cleaner/wiper, rather than being wasteful and using tissue paper.  I always completely clean my brushes between each makeup look that I do (using Cinema Secrets brush cleaner), to keep them clean and to avoid color transfer.

 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 Moi Mineral Cosmetics - Babylon, to the outer 1/2 of crease, with CS's Classic Shadow Angle Synthetic Brush.

 Apply Moi Mineral Cosmetics - Diego, to the lid and inner half of crease, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting and sweeping outward.

 Apply Moi Mineral Cosmetics - Diego, to the inner half of lower lash line, with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush.

 Apply Moi Mineral Cosmetics - Babylon, to the outer half of lower lash line, with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush.

 Apply Moi Mineral Cosmetics - Cage, to the inner V with CS's Classic Detail Pointed Synthetic Brush by patting and sweeping outward.

 Using CS's Classic Shadow Large Synthetic brush, apply Moi Mineral Cosmetics - Sun Burst just below the brow to soften any harsh edges, and for the lower lash line, use a skin tone eyeshadow or a powder foundation to blend.

 Apply a black liquid liner. I used e.l.f. Essential Liquid Eyeliner.

 Apply Red Cherry lashes #43 and black mascara to the lower lashes to complete the look. 

For the rest of what is on my face:
Eyebrows: e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow - Burnt Plum (applied with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush)

Lips: Sobe Botanicals Lipgloss - Venom

Face: 
Skin MD Shielding lotion 
Sobe Botanicals Mineral Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with CS's small classic synthetic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist Powder (applied with CS's small classic synthetic buffer brush) 
NYX blush - Taupe (applied just below the cheek bones to contour using CS's Classic Blush Small Angle Synthetic Brush)
Moi Mineral Cosmetics Blush - Cherry Bomb (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line with CS's Classic Blush Large Angle Synthetic Brush)
Moi Mineral Cosmetics Blush - Awakening (applied above cheek bones to highlight)
