July Birthstone: Ruby

Having done a lot of red looks this year already, I had to come up with something special for the birthstone look of July. After some brainstorming I had the answer to my prayers; Sugarpill's Asylum. Can anything be more perfect than this eyeshadow if you want to capture the Ruby with a makeup look?

Finally I managed to take a picture of red eyeshadow without it looking like I have painted it on in the computer. As many of you already know this has been a big problem for me previously and I hope that I finally have solved it!

Asylum may be the most beautiful eyeshadow this far in my collection. :)

Naked cheeks, red lips and a fluffy mohawk is the way to combine this red smokey eye. ;P

This lip look is achieved by first applying a completely matte red lipstick to your lips and then pop on some Asylum to the center for a metallic finish. Love it! :D
