So, this autumn/winter I'm obsessed with cranberry color. Cranberry lipsticks, blushes and, while organizing my make-up yesterday, I came across this gorgeous cranberry shade eyeshadow! I planned to make a simple smoky eye for Christmas but I just felt as if there is something missing. It was a bit too plain so I decided to add a pop of metallics - who would have known cranberry and metalics would work so well?
We've seen the trend of a contrasting, strong line through the socket all over both A/W and upcoming S/S12 catwalks and why not incorporate it in a going out/festive make-up?
It's that simple - blend a cranberry (or actually, any you wish) eyeshadow through the socket. Lean Your head a bit downwards and look slightly upwards in the mirror and just glide a pencil brush through the socket for perfect eyeshadow placement.
Dip an eyeliner brush in some water and mix with a loose silver pigment (a good alternative is Barry M Dazzle Dust) and draw the line in. Take Your time and let it dry for maximum staying power and a perfect finish!
Finish off with a slick of black eyeliner and a pair of falsies - here I used the new Collection 2000 Luscious Lashes in Glam Volume
Warm Your complexion up with a cranberry blush to match the eyeshadow, add a nice gloss (here I used my all time favorite - Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Frivolous Pink) and You're ready!
I absolutely love this make-up, the silver liner adds such a high fashion twist to the traditional festive make-up and I can't wait to try another graphic gold/green or bronze/neutrals combo!
Love or hate metallics?

Lots of love,
Hope You all have an amazing week,
