Crazy Stupid Love
Everyone certainly gets a case of the Chezzas when Miss Cole releases a new single, and her latest is no exception! It was whilst I was having a little peak at the video of Crazy Stupid Love that I saw Cheryl had a dramatic red smoky eye. The red shadow looked so much like MAC's Coppering that I just had to give the look a go! I'd never used that shadow before and, for what had felt like eternity, it has sat in my palette looking like a fairytale princess with no happy ending. So I dusted it off and got stuck into getting this inspired make up look. Hope you enjoy cake lovers xo
To get this look, take MAC's Coppering on a flat brush. Pat it all over the lid and blend right above the crease and into the sides of your nose. To get rid of any harsh lines I blended MAC's Omega shade to really soften it all out.
For definition, I used MAC's Swiss Chocolate and Embark in the outer corner of the eyes and crease. Be sure to blend all these colours in an upward motion towards the end of your brows for a sexy feline look. Blending the colours down will make your eyes look sad!
I then used Illamasqua's liner and drew a simple flick and extended it using MAC's Carbon colour for a soft smoky look, similar to the one Cheryl is sporting!
For the lower lash line I used Swiss Chocolate. I layered the shade mainly on the inner and outer part of the eyes and blended it in. You want the middle part of your lower lash line to be quite soft in colour compared to the corners. This adds drama and a more seductive feline look to the eye!
Line the entire inside of your eye with a good waterproof liner and pile on the mascara, if you have time throw on some falses for an extra kick.
For the rest of the face, use a matte finish foundation and loads of blush!! Be sure to use one that is in the same colour family as the eye shadow. Dust some highlighter down your nose and cupid's bow for a glow.
For extra drama, and to try out the other look seen in the video, apply a dark red lippie! Illamasqua's Galmore Lipstick in Vampette is so so gorgeous and worked beautifully with the rest of the look.
There you have it! Now all you need is a saxophone player and learn the dance moves and you're all set!
