Cranberry Eye Makeup Tutorial

Okay I know it’s only August.. but I couldn’t wait until fall to do this makeup look! I think cranberry looks are so pretty on green eyes, or all eye colors! Don’t get me wrong, I love my summery peachy looks. But I can’t stay away from dark toned eyeshadows! So if you’d like to see how I got this eyeshadow look then just keep reading!

For this look, I used the Tarte Tartelette in Bloom palette ($46) and the Blinc Electric Eye palette ($45). Of course, you can use any eyeshadow that will do the same job. First, I put the shade Charmer all over the lid to set my NYX base lid primer. Next, I mixed Jetsetter and Smarty Pants into my crease and sort of all over the lid. Then, I put Rebel and Activist on the outer corner. These are all matte shades from the Tarte palette. After I blended those shades together, I put the shade Vanadini from the Blinc palette all of the lid. It is a really gorgeous light pink metallic shade. I really wanted to do something different so I decided to take the second shade, Rhodoni, onto the middle of the lid to where you can still see the light pink on the inner corner and the dark outer crease. It added such a pretty cranberry twist to the look and I loved it. I popped Sphene, the champagne color on the end, onto the very inner corner to brighten up that area.


I added some IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara ($24) to my upper and lower lashes for some drama.

For the lips, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Kristen ($16). I will have a review on that coming up soon! It is very warm toned and I thought it went well with the eye look. I know this look is very fall and winter-y but I wear colors like this year round.

Thank you for reading this quick makeup tutorial! I had a lot of fun making it and I hope it inspires you to go outside the box a little too! Do you have either of these eyeshadow palettes? What are your go-to shades for the summer? Let me know!
