Cranberry Smoke

Here comes a very classic fall look, the cranberry smokey eye. Honestly, I've hesitated about posting this look since it's rather boring but nevertheless it is a pretty everyday look that suits goths and non-goths alike. :)

You've heard it before, like a zillion times, but colors like these brings out green eyes. When using a shimmery shadow on my lid I like to blend it with a matte one to create different textures and thus a more interesting look.

A pop of acid green highlight in the inner corner would make the look more playful but this time I wanted to do a more wearable version so I stuck to frosty nude highlight.

You all probably know that I'm going to say that to goth up this look all you have to do is add some black lipstick. ;) That's not what I did, even though it is a great idea. I decided to go monochrome with cranberry lips and blush.

  1. Inte alls tråkig tycker jag :). Ögonskuggan framhäver verkligen din naturliga ögonfärg

    1. Vad bra! :) Haha, det är dock inte min naturliga ögonfärg. Jag lade i lite, lite grönt i den när jag redigerade bara för att jag älskar sådant här smink till gröna ögon.

  2. I think it's perfect for autumn- classic drama!

  3. Have to try this! I own Cranberry and some other similar shades and I have green eyes :D

    1. Do it! I'm sure it will look fabulous with your green eyes. :D

  4. I like this - it's not at all boring for an everyday look! Love the cranberry lips but black would be a great combination, too. Or cranberry with black outline! Ooh, now I need some eye shadow that color... :)

    1. I'm glad to hear that! :D Yes it definitely would! Go get one! It will look great on you! :D
