FOTD: Dark Red


Hi Loves! Here is another FOTD! I love this gold eyeshadow, and decided to pair it with a dark red lip! I must say this look had a little trial and error involved but we made it work! Keep reading to see how you can get this look!


I decided to use Maybelline Matte + Poreless Foundation. Since I have no summer tan, this foundation is a tad bit too red/dark for me so we will correct this later on with a really light highlight and lighter powder. I applied this foundation with a Real Techniques stippling brush.


For the eyes I used Makeup Geek’s Cocoa Bear in the upper crease and Cherry Cola in the crease. Notice the brush I used to apply Cherry Cola is smaller and comes to a point. This allows me to place the color in a smaller area. On the lid I applied Colour Pop’s Sequence with my fingers. I then lined my eyes with liquid liner.

Highlight Red

Next I moved on to highlighting. I blended the concealer out with the Real Techniques sponge and then went over the edges of the highlighted areas with my foundation brush. This allows for a more blended look. I then set the highlighted areas with Ben Nye Topaz Powder.


To further  correct the foundation color I set my face with a lighter powder, the Makeup Forever Finishing Powder in 174. I contoured with Black Radiance in Rich Mahogany and cleaned up my contour with the Ben Nye powder.


Going back to the eyes I lined the lower lash line with a black pencil and smudged the liner out with Cocoa Bear.


To finish the face I added elf blush and highlighted my cheeks. I also added some lashes and the lipstick I decided to go with was Colour Pop’s Ellarie.


That’s it loves! I hope you enjoyed this look! If there is something you want to see on the blog let me know!! Make sure to check out the full product list below. Thanks for reading! xoxo
