Cranberry Smokey Eye
Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I thought I'd share with you this beautiful Cranberry makeup look I created. I'm using all drugstore / drugstore priced items! The eyeshadow palette I used is the Makeup Revolution Redemption 3 palette. It's almost an exact dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette! I personally can't afford the Urban Decay palette, but it's good to know there's an affordable dupe out there for us makeup lovers on a budget! For how I did my base makeup, I have a foundation routine linked Here. It will include everything I use, products, tools, and how I apply it. 

Cranberry Smokey Eye
Since this eyeshadow palette doesn't have any names, I'm going to reference the names from the Urban Decay palette. I primed my eyelids with the Hard Candy Eyeshadow Primer. I then set it with the shade Strange to set everything and create a smooth surface for blending. On a fluffy blending brush I went through the crease with the shades Limit & Nooner. I blended until there was no harsh lines or edges. To create a lot of depth in the outer third, I used a natural fiber blending brush and the shade Darkside. I buffed and blended adding a little at a time until it was the right amount of Smokey and dark, lol. For my eyelid I used a flat packing brush and the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool, from inner corner to two thirds of the way in. I then took a flat shader brush in the shade Buzz. It's a beautiful cranberry color. The cream shadow under helped it to pop and look more metallic. I packed and patted the shadow back to the outer corner to ensue soften edges. For the small wing, I used a small angled brush with setting spray and used the shade Darkside. I made a thin line from the mid lid to the outer corner and added a small flick.
Finishing the rest if my eye makeup, I used in my waterline the Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof liner in Sparkling Black, Broadway Colors Lengthening Mascara in Black. On the bottom lash line I took a small blending brush and dipped into Darkside connecting where the edge of the wing is and brought it half way in. I then took the shade Buzz on the same brush and took it from the inner corner and blended it back into Darkside. That's it for the eyes!
