Cranberry Smokey Eyes 

While perusing all the glorious goodies in Inglot in Blanchardstown yesterday, I spotted the most gorgeous dark pink sparkly shade (613). I instantly knew it would be the perfect base colour for creating a lovely cranberry smokey eye, perfect for this time of year, which is exactly what I have done for today’s eye make up look.

Step 1: Apply a bright white colour all over the lids. I used a mix of shade 1 & 2 from the below Morphe palette.

 Step 2: Taking the Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease eyeshadow brush apply Inglot’s 613 dark pink shadow on to the outer three quarters of the crease and outer v and blend, blend, blend.

Step 3: To darken up the look and add some dimension take a dark purple colour, I chose the last shade from the Morphe palette pictured above. Apply this darker shade to the outer v and outer crease of the eye and blend to avoid any harsh lines. You will have to keep going back in with the dark pink and dark purple shadows and blending them out to build up the depth of the colours in order to create your desired look.

Step 4: Taking a mix of the dark pink and dark purple shadows used on the crease apply these to the lower lash line and blend out.

Step 5: Add liner and lashes and to finish the look add a pop of highlight to the inner corner of the eye as well as underneath the eyebrow bone.

Quite a simple yet dramatic look to create with the toughest part being all that blending but I think it’s worth it the effort as it is a colour combo that I absolutely love. Do you like the cranberry smokey eye look?

Happy Friday, I hope you have a lovely weekend!
