Meteoric Cranberry: Red Holiday Makeup

holiday christmas cranberry red cool toned smokey eye makeup look raspberry lips drugstore rimmel nyx apocalypse show off meteoric lacquer
Winter or holiday themed makeup can get somewhat repetitive: red lips, shimmery gold lids, silvery eyes, etc. I wanted to achieve a red cranberry toned eyeshadow look without it looking warm. Pairing red tones with warm brown eyeshadows is a "no-brainer" because they look good and go well together. However, contrasting tones can look beautiful too and it's nice to do something different now and then. I used a very cool toned cream eyeshadow (Tough as Taupe from Maybelline which is basically grey) to contrast with NYX's Flustered Eyeshadow (a dupe for MAC Cranberry). I hope you like this!

  1. I totally agree with you on the fact it can get very repetitive. I love how you've jazzed up your look with a septum ring. I love them :) X

  2. Love your creativity with this one! I have MAC Cranberry and never quite know what to do with it, this might be a good look to try but I don't think my blending skills are as good as yours!

  3. I have Maybelline's tough as taupe but I don't really use it, now you give me an idea how to incorporate other eye shadows with it! This is such a lovely look!
