Hi Beauties!

Today I have for you a very simple makeup look , if you are a beginner, you will easily do this, I promise.

First you’d need is a clean canvas…your eyes. 

Easy cranberry makeuplook for beginners


  1. Apply eyeshadow base all over eyes, I used the lancome eyeshadow base.
  2. Set it with a shade similar to your skin tone or a shade lighter as long as it matches the eyeshadow base. I used Soft Peach from Anastasia Beverly Hills Travelers Palette. anastasia beverly hills travelers palette
  3. Taking a flat eyeshadow brush, apply a cranberry shade. I used the shade from the Morphe brushes Eyeshadow palette 35C. 

Of course, feel free to use similar shade from any palette if you don’t have exact the same. Be flexible and resourceful.

4. Take a clean blending brush, and apply a light peach shade on the crease for our transition color. Keep building up the color till you get the desired shade.

5. Now apply a dark brown shade into the crease to give it more dimension. Start frommorphe brushes eyeshadow palette 35c the outer part of the eyes and work your way towards the inner corners. Point is, the outer part has to have the dark shade and it will go light as it moves towards the inner corner.

6. Once you are done with the upper part of your eyes, take a definer brush and apply the cranberry shade along the lower lash line.
