Hi Girls!

 Reds and maroon shades are not easy colors when it comes to makeup. These can definitely make anybody look unflattering as well as make your eyes look tired.

I confess that I always was afraid that color. I reach for it very rarely.

But I decided that I would try to impose it on the entire eyelid. I did not like the effect at the beginning.

I changed my mind when I added a black liner and a little bit of brown. This shows that any color can look good. 

You just have to make some small tweaks to make the look suit you.


  1. Apply maroon eyeshadow  to the the entire eyelid.
  2. Apply orange eyeshadow to the crease. Blend it well with the maroon shade.
  3. Using a beige eyeshadow, gently blend the upper edges of the eyeshadows. Apply a sparkling beige eyeshadow to the inner corner of the lid.
  4. Emphasize the lower lashline:  Apply  brown eyeshadow to the outer lower lashline and beige eyeshadow to the inner lower lashline. Apply a little bit of white in the inner corner.
  5. Fill in the eyebrows to frame the eyes. Line your upper lashline with black eyeliner.
  6. Finish the look with black mascara.
