Red tones can be tricky to get right in eye makeup however I feel the black liner helps to balance it out in this look. As Lauren did, I paired the eyes with a dark red lip, however if you want to make this more of a day-to-day look I think it would look stunning with a neutral lip too!
Step 1: I began by defining my brows and just pressing a small amount of powder over the lid to even out any pigmentation or foundation.
Step 2: Next I took my berry eyeshadow and lightly blended this through the crease and under the lower lash line.
Step 3: Next I took the berry eyeshadow again, this time focusing it just at the outer corner of the eye to increase the colour intensity here. I also added a nude shimmer across my lid.
Step 4: Taking a black kohl liner, I placed this on the lower and upper waterline, taking it right into the corner of my eye.
Step 5: Then I took a gel liner and just created a very fine line along my upper lashes, winging it out slightly at the corner.
Step 6: Finally I added a coat of mascara to my lashes and finished off the eyes with some fake lashes.
And there you have your sophisticated evening eye look!
For the eyes I used Illamasqua eyebrow cake in 'Peek', MAC eyeshadow in 'Cranberry' and 'All That Glitters', Lord and Berry kohl liner in '#1001', Maybelline 'Gel Liner' and Eyelure lashes in '107'.
I also added a soft contour to my cheeks using Nars 'Laguna', highlighted my cheek bones using Illamasqua 'Gleam in Aurora' and added a dark lip using Illamasqua colouring Pencil in 'Lust' to begin and topping this with Lime Crime Velvetine in 'Red Velvet'.
What do you think of this look? Its a bit too soon to start thinking about Christmas but I think this would be perfect for festive parties!
