'Burning Flame' Look
This look is half request and half Valentine's Day inspired. One of the main looks I have seen for Valentine's Day is a red smokey eye...but using black as the central color. I did my own twist on the look with red as the focal point. Red eyeshadow is really hard to wear without looking sore or bruised but I think this turned out great! Oh and before I forget...Pure Luxe OMG! Pigment is phenomenal!
I started off with Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Groundwork Paintpot (satin neutral taupe) on my brow bone and MAC Flammable Paint (satin deep red) on my lid as my primary bases. Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush & MAC 242 Shader Brush
On the inner lid and tearduct area I applied MUFE #902 Star Powder (pearl gold). MAC 242 Shader Brush
Next on the middle of the lid I applied Pure Luxe OMG! Pigment (shimmery red). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
On the outer lid and crease I applied MUFE #79 Eyeshadow (satin deep plum). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
To deepen the outer V and crease I used MUFE #4 Eyeshadow (matte black). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
On the browbone area and for blending I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte camel). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For highlight I used Bare Escentuals Clear Radiance All Over Face Color (shimmery light pink). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used MAC Feline Eye Kohl Pencil (matte black).
My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush
I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black. MAC 266 Small Angle Brush

I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion and Tarte Clean Slate Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
