January 2011 Series: 2nd

A look using a gold-ish yellow all over the lid, a cranberry shade above the crease, & a reddish brown on the outer half portion above the crease. The reddish brown is blended onto the outer corner of the lid as well. A shimmery light brown was used to blend the cranberry & reddish brown shades upward. A highlight was applied right under the brow & blended downward into the shimmery light brown.
The eyeliner was made bold and dark by applying black eyeliner on the waterline, lining the lid with a thick line, & lining the lower lashline. The eyeliner was winged as well. The cranberry shade was applied and smudged under the black eyeliner on the lower lashline as well. The look was finished off with 2 coats of a dark black mascara.


Products Used:
  • 120 palette (1st edition): yellow-F5 (applied very lightly), reddish brown-R6+S6 (mixed), shimmery light brown-O6, highlight-K6
  • MAC eyeshadow in Cranberry (if you're using the 120 palette, S6 can be used as a substitute)
