So, as the title states, this is a bit of a failed look. It look alright in the photo above, but a closeup is a little… =/
I was digging around for products that I don’t use very often, and I pulled out my MAC Cranberry.
MAC Cranberry on the left, I think it’s Elektra on the right.
It’ a beautiful burgundy red in the pot, but for some reason, always becomes an odd shade of pink on me. I applied it in the crease, but overblended it so it overwhelmed the deeper purples I’d used on the outer third of the eye.
Also, I don’t quite like how the silver with it. In retrospect, I should have used Urban Decay Spell, which is a dirty gold colour, instead of silvery toned stuff.
I can’t seem to wear MAC Cranberry. I think I’ve finally hit a colour that I can’t quite pull off. Cranberry and other burgundy shades usually look absolutely gorgeous on warmer skin tones, but it just gives me a pink eye. And I’ve managed to wear it if it’s a smoky eye, blended out into black. I’ll keep trying to find a way to wear it.
Colour palette used. From left to right: Bobbi Brown Pot Rogue in Raspberry, Maybelline 24 Hour Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk, MAC Cranberry, Urban Decay Tornado, Urban Decay Oz (silver and gold microglitter)
What are colours you can’t seem to find a way to wear?
