Flame Inspired Smoky Eyes

As I was browsing through my eyeshadows looking for inspiration, I opened up my Sugarpill Burning Heart palette and the yellow, orange, and red shades made me think of the flames on classic motorcycles or hot rods. I decided I would throw that color scheme on my eyes to see how I liked it. Me likey.

I was just playing around, so I didn’t get a full face look done. I am going to look at the pictures some to decide how I would pull this off in a full look. If I figure it out you can be sure I will take pictures and post it on the blog. Sometimes I get eyeshadow ideas, but then just draw a blank about how to incorporate it into a complete look. Any and all suggestions welcome. I was thinking perhaps a very soft peach lip and cheek. Maybe even just a gloss on the lips instead of lipstick.

Also, what do you think of the black being used to change the color of the red? Do you think I should have kept the black looking black?

I used:

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Sugarpill Buttercupcake on the inner half and tear duct
  • Sugarpill Flamepoint on the outer half and lower lash line
  • Sugarpill Love+ on the outer corner and lower lash line
  • LORAC Ooh La Lace Palette, the black shadow to smoke it out
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony
  • Ardell Demi Lashes #120
  • Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

    Gorgeous. I would think that a soft, lightly bronzed cheek and a neutral, glossy lip would pair nicely with such a brilliant and beautiful eye look.

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    absolutely stunning!

  • Nidia Doherty

    smokin’! My first thought is to do a black lip! Maybe a little over-the-top… maybe go the other way and just use a sheer gloss?

    Very exotic look! I wouldn’t know how to incorporate it with a full face makeup, but I like your idea of using soft peach colors. Maybe soft peach matte lipstick?
