30-Day Makeup Challenge: Day 4

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Day 4 of my makeup challenge sees me up and going about 20 minutes earlier than usual, hence the experimentation with a new product.

I still did the standard slightly smoky eye that I'm prone to wearing to work, but I added a little shock of red to it, which is something I've never done before. I never saw red as a colour I would ever wear on my eyes. It freaks me out and I would never go near red eyeshadow, but I decided to try it this time around when Illamasqua released their 'Theatre of the Nameless' collection and I was offered the chance to try their Pure Pigment in 'Berber'.

What do you guys think? Is this a good way to wear a red eyeshadow? Would you ever use red eyeshadow yourself?
