I cannot remember the last time I posted a look on my blog – it’s actually been FOREVER as I tend to post more looks on Instagram than here but I dunno I was so excited about this look – I had to share it!
I have tried a red smokey eye once before and FAILED MISERABLY, the pictures make my arm hairs stand on end – it’s that bad, but after seeing some inspo on Insta I decided to try my luck again.
I blended and smoked it out until it looked right and I have to say I am in LOVE with the end result!
I still need to work on my eye shadow placement – the messiness is killing me but I’m more than happy with everything else.
