It’s finally November, which means it’s finally time for me to abandon any hope of summer weather returning. But that doesn’t mean your eyes can’t be bright. This week for The Makeup Mix-Up, Cranberry Sauce is being served up. It would be way too easy for me to find a deep shade of lipstick and call it a day, but I wanted to do something more with my eyes.
The secret (I think) to keeping cranberry eyes from looking red and sickly and instead bright and vibrant is starting with a good base. It will keep everything locked in and even instead of patchy and “was that intentional?” Because “sick” is not a word I’d use to describe this cranberry eye look. Unless you mean it as in “totally awesome..”
Just like when I tried the vampy look, I had something else in mind entirely, but changed my mind halfway through. I was thinking about a smoky eye with deep rusty shadows, but instead went for a fall sunset look. I want to call it cranberr-eyes.
I love how unforgiving dSLR cameras are. They pick up everything. But aside from foundation and concealer, this is my skin. For better or worse. And tomorrow I’ll be totally makeup free for #RFGoNaked Day. For every selfie posted, Rodan + Fields will make a donation to empower students in need through service and education. If you want to jump on board with me and go naked (office-appropriately of course) – this isn’t an ad, I just wanted to share a good cause.
Plus it’s good to let your skin breathe. I’ve been using Rodan + Fields on and off and I really enjoy how it makes my skin look when I’m on it.
