'Red Hot' Look

'Red Hot' Look

So the first thing I have to say is that red and orange eyeshadows do not photograph very well at all. For shame! Plus red is such a difficult color to pull off in eyeshadow...but you know I had to try.

I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid up to my brow bone as my primary base.

On the tear duct I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
Then on the inner lid I applied MUFE #920 Yellow Gold Star Powder.
Next on the middle of the lid, I applied MUFE #952 Iridescent Orange Star Powder.
On the outer lid and crease I applied MUFE #949 Iridescent Red Star Powder.
For the blending I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte nude).
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.

I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner in Black. I lined my lower waterline with Loreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
I used MUFE #21 Aqua Cream (vibrant turquoise) topped with MUFE #960 Turquoise Star Powder for my lower lashline.
I used MAC Opulash Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Princess Eyelashes for effect.

OCC Melange Lip Tar and Inglot #543 Lip Gloss.

I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe with MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes. I set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used MAC Ripe Blush Ombre for my cheeks.


  1. PRETTY!!! I have all of those star powders, except the yellow, and I never use them! I think I'm going to have to dust them off :-)

  2. This came out so nice! U have melange. I purchased it at TMS. I haven't used it yet.

    I gave you a blog award:

  3. Wow! This is beautiful, you make me want to pick up some bright colours and play with.

  4. Gorgeous! I think the colors photographed wonderfully. And you wear red so well, I'm jealous.

    I passed on Melange at the Makeup Show, and you're making me regret that. I may need to do an OCC order soon.

  5. Thanx so much guys!

    Hey J! Dust those bad boys off. I have a few of the Star Powders but I never bothered to use them...but now I'm going to have to put them into rotation.

    Thx so much Kim! Melange is such a great coral nude. I apply my lip tars over lip balm for better results. I need to update my review a little bit.

    Arezu! You know I love my brights! Plus summer is coming up!

    Thx Amy! The colors look different in person but what to do. Red is such a weird color to work fall out equals disaster. There's an OCC distributor in NY you know. Check them out.

  6. I love it! The colors are so pretty and your blending is amazing!

  7. It's funny I was thinking a couple weeks ago that I have never seen you work with red (I notice because my favorite color is red). I figured it was probably not that easy to work with, but you did a fantastic job! It looks very pretty :)

  8. SUPER, is very hot this look, and you are very pretty!

  9. I can't, I can't, you are the BOMB, this is soooooooooo wonderful, Do I hear a tutorial, LOL
