Hi everybody! A while ago I uploaded a makeup look based on Sunflowers, it was first makeup look in what I like to call my flower series; if you’d like to check it out click here.
Today I came back with another flower inspired makeup look, part of my flower series. This makeup look is a red based look inspired by red roses with the tiny dash of green! This is a more sultry look, perfect to wear with a bold red lip.
Let’s get started! All products are linked.
I won’t go too deep into details for the base makeup since I do the same routine for each look. The products I used were:
If you’d like to know exactly how I do my base makeup, you can check out this post.
For my eyebrows, I used an angled brow brush and Inglot’s Freedom System Rainbow Shadow 107. I made a harsher arch today because I wanted a bolder look, but it came out pretty underemphasized because I’ve been doing a straighter brow after my KBeauty: Brows edition.

Today for my eye makeup, I decided to try out the tape cut crease trick. This is basically a trick that you use with scotch tape; you place a bit on your eye and use it almost like a stencil for a razor sharp cut crease shadow look. Remember to first stick it somewhere else to reduce the stickiness; you don’t want to be pulling hard on your skin when taking the tape off. I lined up the tape with my lower lash line to angle it nicely.
First I applied the shade Burnout from the Naked 3 Palette evenly on my lid. Then I used a smaller packing brush to add some of the red Kiko Milano shade to the outer corner of my eye. I blended it into the eye, making sure to not go over halfway. Then I applied the shade Dust on the inner corner of my lid, blending it into the red shade. I packed on some more Dust on the centre of the lid to add more shimmer. Then I brushed Dust on the inner corner of my lower lash line and then I lined one third of my lash line with a green eye shadow from Inglot. Then I used the shade Blackheart from the Naked 3 palette to make a sharp and thin wing using the tape on the side of my eye.
Then I used my Tony Moly Tony Tint in 01 Cherry Pink in the centre of my lips, and blended it in naturally to make a slight gradient.
And it’s as simple as that!
Thank you as always for reading, and please check out my other posts, I upload three to four times a week!
