I have recently become obsessed with Once Upon a Time and I’m binge watching my way through it. I love everything about it but I particularly love the make-up and costumes. One of my favourite looks is Ruby. I love her dramatic eye liner. In the episode that she started working for Emma she had a a really cool red eye make-up look so this is what I have recreated (but with a red hood).
The main product I used for this look is Blank Canvas Cosmetics’ 88 colour shadow palette. I love this palette and it is incredibly good value at under €20. I use it for almost every single dramatic look I create. I stated by using a white all over my eyes. I then worked a taupe above my crease, followed by a darker brown into the crease. I also used Blank Canvas brushes for the whole look. I then applied a red to the outer corner of my lids and worked it mid way across to meet the white on my lids. I blended the corners upwards towards my crease. I then added NYX’s Milk pencil on top of the white and finally lined with Inglot’s gel liner. Under my lashes and waterline I added a black pencil from YSL. I then used a red lip liner from MAC and smudged it.
For my face I used Botanics’ Radiance Balm all over and YSL’s Ink Fusion foundation. I used plenty of the pink from Soap and Glory’s Kick Ass concealer under my eyes. For contour I used a bronzer from Makeup Revolution and the highlighter is Inglot’s Sparkle Dust. To finish the face I used a cream blush from Essence.
Ruby’s / Red’s brows are darker and sharper than mine so I used a black from the same shadow palette along with their E38 brush to create a pointier arch.
Finally for my lips I used red lip liner and Ruby Woo from MAC.
