Red smokey eye look with Coastal Scents 88 Palette + FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a red smokey eye look using Coastal Scents 88 palette.

For this look, I’ve paired softly smoked red smokey eye with maroonish red lipstick in one look and red-pink lipstick in another with a little bronzer applied at the apples of the cheeks.

I’ve paired this makeup with a simple white top to avoid any color clashes.

  1. Bold eyes, bold lips and they don’t clash…. nice…! i’d go for a natural pink gloss….but then again, I’d never do a smokey red eye!

    • I’d always wanted to try a red smokey eye. I tried it with just gloss and it wasn’t photographing well at all..looked like I had nothing on the lip and not in a nice way!

      • Ohhh…. thats bad…. you know you shuld do full outfit posts too…. i can never figure out what colours to wear with what outfits 😦

  2. this looks so nice not OTT at all…
    are these shadows smooth on the eyes …what abt the fallout,texture etc…??
