Red Alert

It’s officially Autumn. And do you know what that means? Warm tones. Obviously!

My friend Hannah has the prettiest green eyes ever (I’m not biased, I swear) and I wanted to really make them pop with dark red tones. This can seem a bit of a scary colour choice, but when smoked out with warm brown tones it’s so wearable. I kept the rest of the look simple with smoothed out skin and nude lips, so that the eyes could be the star of the show.

Scroll down for a full product breakdown as always. Enjoy!
