Red Riding Hood

My current obsession is about the show Once Upon a Time. It is amazing! For those of you who doesn't know about it, it is about fairy tale characters who, due to a curse, has been trapped in the little town Storybrooke, Maine. They don't remember anything about their past life in the Enchanted forest, but one day a girl, Emma, comes to town and things start to change.
It is a wonderful, magical story which thrillingly makes you watch episode upon episode. ;) The most interesting element in the series is definitely the love story inspired by Beauty and the Beast, which is so beautiful it makes your heart ache.
As for the actors the most famous one's in this show are the pretty Ginnifer Goodwin (as Snow White) and the brilliant Robert Carlyle (as Rumplestiltskin; who is definitely my favorite character ;) ).

Anyways, there are a lot of great makeup looks in this show as well and the one I like most is the one that Red Riding Hood's Real World-alter-ego, Ruby, wears in one of the episodes in season 1.

Meghan Ory as Ruby/Red riding hood. Isn't she beautiful?

And here's my version of the look! :) 

This week I've worn this look every day. The Makeup Geek lipstick in Elegant is probably one of my new favorites (except my trusty ol' black of course... ;) ). I will write a review on it soon because I feel the need to tell you all about what a great lipstick it is. 

I really like this look. :) 

Since the close-up pictures I took from the first time I wore this look turned out crappy (why does red always look over-saturated on my pics??) I photographed the eyes again, with other light settings. Hence, the black eyebrows on the close-ups. ;) 

Make sure that the red is strongest on the outside corner/crease and then softly blend it into the white on the eyelids. Before adding the red, add a medium/light brown in the crease as a transition color. So basically, Step 1. White on the lid; Step 2. Soft brown in the crease; Step 3. Red; Step 4. Eyeliner. Not too hard, right? :)

  1. Hi darling, I'm currently loving Once Upon a Time so I understand you perfectly =D, great look, love your thin eyebrows <3

    I invite you to take a look at my blog:


    see you around ;) ciao

  2. Very purty! I started watching Once Upon A Time but didn't finish it... I keep on meaning to start watching it again, though. I like Rumplestiltskin the best, but I liked the modern/alter ego Red Riding Hood as well; she reminded me a bit of the Angela Carter versions of the story, which are quite dark and adult.

    1. Thanks! :) How long did you get in the series? Rumplestiltskin/Mr Gold becomes more and more interesting as the story goes on. It's like he has a million dark secrets. I also like Red Riding hood; she's cool and funny. :)

  3. Love this! The perfect way to wear Red! XOxO

    1. Thanks! It certainly is a very good way of wearing red, especially for everyday looks. :)

  4. I always love Red's looks. Her makeup always seems classic and edgy at the same time.

    1. Hi! I loved your looks at Makeupbee as well. :3 Thanks for following my blog, I really appreciate that! <3

  6. Hello ~ I happen to find your blog via search for different make up ideas for my Harley Quinn costume. I am struggling whether to be more creative or stay true to the character in regards to the make up. I found your site to be very interesting; I love the different looks and your recreations! I too love Once Upon A Time however I wouldn't categorize Ruby as "beautiful". I love your version of the look far better and you're definitely much prettier! Anyway thank you for having this blog <3 I have been on hiatus on mine but when I return I am definitely adding links to your site! Much love and respect from my part of the world! ~ SaassyT
