Hey folks!

This is a look that I did earlier this week.  I also used Red Cherry Lashes for the first time.  And they are pretty good and inexpensive!

I heard A LOT about Red Cherry but did not want to order online, and silly me only just discovered Beauty 35 in NYC!  Really it’s a mecca for inexpensive beauty products, hair and makeup supplies.  Anyway, I bought one pair of Red Cherry lashes in #DEL just to test them out.  They cost about $2.99 and they were very thin, wispy and long! They were easy to put in and felt really comfy.  They get a thumbs up from me!

Back to the look!

The Details…

  • Apply TFSI  to the entire eyelid and lower lashline, using ring finger
  • Using # 224 brush, apply Warming Trend to the inner and middle lid, using soft strokes. This is soft look.
  • Using your # 239 brush, pat on Hepcat onto the outer lid, from the lashline, to and a little past the crease.  You want the colour to come out of your crease.
  • Using Smoke Signal pigment and a small blending brush like the # 226, to apply a light dusting of pigment in the outer crease just to slightly darken the crease.
  • Apply Feline eyeliner on the upper lashline
  • Using Hepcat and # 239 apply shadow to the outer third of lower lashline
  • Line lower water line with Givenchy Kajal
  • Curl lashes, if needed
  • Apply mascara to both upper and lower lashes
  • Apply falsies and blend with natural lashes!

Some Dupes…

Warming Trend is a shimmery, light gold, beigey, tan colour.  Any hightlight colour would work e.g. M.A.C. Henna.

Hepcat is a dark, shimmery pink.  MUFE’s # 58 could be used, but that is a matte colour.  Then a layer of pale shimmer could be added over that.

Smoke Signals is a very dark, matte burgundy.  M.A.C.’s Agate, and Sketch are similar.
