Red Riding Hood Inspired Makeup

Hello!

Since we are in October, I thought it'd be fitting to do a post on a Red Riding Hood inspired makeup look. I unfortunately don't have a red cape like hood, so this will have to do!

Lets get right into the look!

On my eyes I started with a eye shadow primer. The primer I used was Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I have a previous post on this if you want to check out what I think about it. I used a lot of different colors to achieve this look. I started by using one of the Lorac Pro Palette colors in Garnet and blended that into my crease with my Sigma blending brush. I then started using some warm brown shades (they don't have names; sorry!) from the BH Day & Night Palette. I dusted a lighter warm brown on my lids then moved on to applying a darker brown using my flat shader brush from Real Techniques.



I then continued to blend Garnet into my crease to intensify the color. After that I used Espresso from the Lorac palette and put that all over my lid, blending it out after every application of color. To make the look a little more intense I applied the muted red color from the BH palette and mixed it with Garnet on my crease.



I used my liquid eyeliner to apply my winged look and then dabbed Black from the Lorac palette to darken up my liner. I used Espresso and Garnet and smoked it out underneith my lash line and voila your completed Red Riding Hood inspired look! Just add a mascara of your choice and you're done! I personally decided to wear the Ardell Demi Whispies just to add that something but its up to you if you'd like to or not. Also, you can pair this look with a nude lip product and make it more night time appropriate or you can pair it with a darker color to really go all out. Both looks are great.



I've always liked Red Riding Hood so I thought I would make a post on it. What better month to do that than October? Also, huge credit to Mia who took these awesome pictures (which she does a lot for me because she's great, or I'll poke her until she does. Which ever works. Haha) So thank you Mia!
 Let me know what your creepy October look will be.

Thanks for reading!
