Cranberry/Rust Smokey Eye for Fall

October 2, 2015

The LORAC PRO Palette still has my heart. Ever since it joined my happy makeup family, nothing else has compared – not even it’s cool-toned sister, the PRO Palette 2. I absolutely love the shades and versatility of this palette, especially for fall! Today I am sharing this cranberry/rust smokey eye, a definite go-to of mine during the season.

I start with Taupe in the crease and place Garnet all over the lid. It’s such a unique reddish-orange hue! I go back in with a blending brush to buff out any harsh edges. Then I use Sable to deepen the crease ever so slightly and pop Espresso in the outer corners. I repeat these steps in reverse order for my lower lash line, starting from dark to light and and finish the entire look with Nude in the inner corner and on my brow bone.

This colour combination does something magical to draw out the green in my hazel eyes. I can’t even imagine how stunning it would look on those who actually have green eyes.

I chose to pair it with a medium-toned lip by mixing a little bit of Mac Dark Side and Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Demure, but it would also look great with a nude or vampy colour as well. I was actually wearing this eye for my Five Favourite Lip Colours for Fall post, which went up a couple of weeks ago.
