Seductive Cranberry

Today we bring you a holiday look using the 120-Pro Palette Second Edition. This is more of a warm and somewhat smokey look that is very versatile for day or night.

To achieve this Look:

We will 1st begin as always do with a primer/base of your choosing. Doing this will make your shadow's last longer and give the colors more vibrancy.

In order to get the cranberry color to show a little brighter, I have used a cream base close to the shade we will be using on all of the lid.

We will then go in with this bronze/gold color in the crease

Remember to Blend, Blend, Blend!

Then take this Matte Black Shadow and Deepen the crease to add some dimension and add to the outer corner of the lid for a smoked out look.

It is easier to add the black a little at a time. We want to remember it is easier to add than to take away if you put too much :-)

We will then go in with this cranberry shade over the cream base we applied earlier:

** Tip to get your shadow to look more foiled and vibrant try dipping your brush in some water , it will give the shadow a little kick of shine **

We will then use this beige/cream shade to highlight the browbone

We then take that same cranberry color and line the lover lash line as well with the bronze/gold on the inner lash line

Finish your look with some Natural Looking Lashes
A Rosey Blush to Give your Cheeks a Pinch of color
Use a Red Lipstick 
** Tip Use a Gold Pigment over your lipstick to give it the reddish/copper tone**
