Cranberry Halo Eye for Valentine’s Day


Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! You either love or hate the holiday, but at the very least, it’s a great excuse to bust out some extra fine makeup and all the heart emojis! ❤️???????


I created this cozy cranberry look because I am just always drawn to that shadow color. If there’s a burgundy wine shade in a palette, a reddish chocolate brown, my eyes go to it like a laser beam. It helps that it contrasts beautifully with green or blue eyes, making them look even brighter. Ooh la la!


Makeup Geek shadows in Creme Brûlée and Bitten. Creme Brulee is my crease color for life.
Root Eyeshadows in Champagne Cake and Holland. Root makes some of the prettiest champagne pinks.
Julep When Pencil Met Gel in Blackest Black I love this pencil, especially in the waterline.
Tyra Beauty Oops Liner This was the first time I’d tried this and I’m digging it!
Buxom Mascara Bar Full and Fabulous Wand Not the best mascara I’ve tried but I like it ok.
e.l.f. Satin Lipstick in Touch of Berry This is new from e.l.f. and OMG I love it! The shade and the formula are both baller.

Tips for pulling off shadows with red tones

  • Start with a matte, warm brown transition color in the crease to create a soft fade
  • Add a pop of brightness at the inner corner and/or center of the lid to keep dimension on the lid
  • Conceal and brighten the undereye area really well. I apply concealer all the way up to the lower lash line to erase any red or purple tones in this area.
  • Black liner will help to create more contrast and keep the red tones a safe distance from the whites of your eyes.
