Today I’m doing a red smokey eye look using Coastal Scents 88 palette.
For this look, I’ve paired softly smoked red smokey eye with maroonish red lipstick in one look and red-pink lipstick in another with a little bronzer applied at the apples of the cheeks.
I’ve paired this makeup with a simple white top to avoid any color clashes.

1. BeYu eye base (not pictured)
2. Bourjois Kohl and contour eye pencil #03 Brun Expressif (dark brown shade)
3. Coastal Scents 88 original palette (encircled shades)
4. Maybelline colossal volume mascara
5. Brushes- Faces eyeshadow brush, MAC 222(For blending), unbranded angular brush

3. Using blending brush, smoke out and blend the red eye shadow at the crease using dark brown eye shadow.

5. Apply lots of brown kohl on water line, smudge at lower lash line using angular/pencil brush.
