Motives Monday / Tahitian Red Earth Eyeshadow



Monday is here and the first start post of Motives Monday!  I am so excited to get started.
I have  selected two primary eyeshadow colors for todays tutorial. But I am debuting the Tahitian Red Earth eyeshadow as my selection for Motives Monday kick off. 
So, today's tutorial is a very glamours red smokey eye.
I am only using two colors to keep it simple and easy for everyone. 
First is I apply the base color, Dollface which is a light purplish color, slightly shimmery.
The Tahitian Red Earth is such a brilliant color. I love how strong the pigmentation of the color actually shows up. It is really pretty when you use black eyeliner on the top and water line of your eyes.
I applied the Tahitian Red to the creases of my eye lids almost making a V.
Using a blending brush I blended the two colors as I brushed the Tahitian Red in my eye creases.
I always use the brush in a circular motion as I apply my creases.
Next I used a black Khol eyeliner to finish.
All the colors I used for my overall look.
 The Dollface eyeshadow, Pearl eyeshadow (this I used as a high lighter under my eyebrows) So Peachy blush for my checks. And of course the Tahitian Red eyeshadow. 
I hope you like this tutorial and if you have any questions or ideas you can leave a comment below.
