How To Wear: MAC's Cranberry Eyeshadow

I love raspberry shades. From deep mahogany reds to shimmery, pearly pinks. But good golly are they hard to pull off on your eyes. They need careful placement and slow building up to avoid looking tired, upset or some times even like you've been punched in the eye! 

Normally if I see a red/pink eyeshadow colour that I'm drawn to, I will seek a similar shade in a blush or lipgloss as they are much more acceptable places to don the pink and red hues. However, every single time I entered a MAC or passed a MAC counter Cranberry (a frost finish eyeshadow) jumped out at me. I swatched it every single time. I must have swatched it a good 40 odd times (on seperate occasions) before finally, FINALLY my Dad noticed how I couldn't leave the shade alone and offered to buy me it and put me out of my misery. This offer took me aback as a) my Dad dislikes spending money on things which are unnecessary or don't have some sort of motor in them or can be strummed and b) because I never actually thought I'd own Cranberry. 

A few months later I've fallen into a deep, passionate love with Cranberry and I think I've mastered the tricky shade. Above are some images of me wearing MAC's Cranberry and the look I put together for a tutorial video. If you want to learn how you too can pull of beautiful yet unforgiving reds and pinks, give this tutorial a go.


I hope you enjoy this tutorial and while I've got your attention- enter my giveaway! You could win a NARS Orgasm- my new love.
