EOTD: Red Halo

Goodmorning everyone! Here I am again and this time I have a bit of a special look for you!
The look that I am wearing today is a little out of my comfort zone, it's based on orange and red eyeshadows.
I have said it before on this blog and I'll say it again: red eyeshadows can be very intimidating and can make you look sick or like you've just cried in no-time.

These past few months I've started to appreciate oranges and reds a lot more.
The look that I made today is a "halo" look - this means that you have darker colours on the in- and outside of your eyelids and a lighter colour in the center.
This technique makes your eyes look bigger and brighter, which is really nice if you have small eyes.

I started by working a tan eyeshadow from Urban Decay's Naked Heat palette into my crease and blending it out.
Then, I put "Red Brick" by MAC in my crease, inner- and outer corner. This is a really bright orange, matt eyeshadow colour. Next, I darkened things up with the shimmery red "Ruddy" eyeshadow (also by MAC).

Because the Fenty Beauty "Trophy Wife" highlighter is a little bit too dark for me during the wintertime, I decided to put it on the middle of my eyelid, the part that I had left blank.
I carefully blended this in with "Red Brick", going back and forth between the two colours.

After that I went in with my H&M gel eyeliner and my trusty old Essence liquid ink eyeliner. I put a little highlight by Kat Von D in my inner corner, et voilĂ !
