Hello, beautiful people! It’s been a while. Today I’m sharing a red smokey eye makeup look created by my amazingly talented best friend Mickey Fitzpatrick. I’m grateful I was able to spend the day with Mickey and we had time to play with makeup. I always learn so much from him! He shopped my makeup stash to put this look together.
Most of these photos were taken by Mickey on Mickey’s iPhone. A few were taken on my Canon 80D DSLR camera.

Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder in Lavender
Terra Moons Infrared was the base color used all over the eyes. Mickey worked back and forth with Lethal Nocturnal and Unity to add sexy, smokey depth, while adding texture with Cerise Waves and Blood Moon. Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder in Lavender was used to diffuse the edges of color on the eyes and around the face.
Mickey did a lot of mixing and customizations with primer all around my face. I especially loved watching him mix Danessa Myricks Gold Prism FX into the primers to add subtle glow and dimension.
Mickey wanted my skin to look velvety and matte, so he played with powders to give me dimension and depth. He overdrew my lips, which I normally don’t do because I can’t do it elegantly like Mickey does, with the Lime Crime Minx pencil. This mushroom brown pencil is a go-to for him, as he loves the Lime Crime lip pencils like I do. We both enjoyed seeing how KVD Heat Burst Dazzle Stick gave us a lot of multidimensional red warmth on the lips.
You know I normally embrace the Ice Queen looks, rarely going for warmth so it’s such a treat to see what Mickey does with my complexion.
What do you think of this red smokey eye?
