Tutorial: MAC Cranberry Editorial Look

IMG_8881 IMG_8899

Hey guys, I hope you’re all having a nice weekend. I myself am having a nice chilled one so I thought I’d do a quick, easy Sunday tutorial. There’s really not much involved with this look but a couple of simple washes of colour.

You will need:

  1. An eye primer of your choice
  2. Urban Decay NAKED eyeshadow
  3. MAC Artistic License eyeshadow
  4. MAC Cranberry eyeshadow
  5. MAC Nylon eyeshadow
  6. Black eyeliner of your choice
  7. Black mascara of your choice


  1. Prime your eyes up the brows
  2. Apply some NAKED (or any soft brown) to your crease for a transitional colour and blend
  3. Apply a wash of Artistic License across your whole lid and blend out (if you like you can skip this and go straight in with the Cranberry)
  4. Apply a wash of MAC Cranberry over the Artistic License and blend out
  5. Apply Artistic License and Cranberry under the eye and blend out with NAKED
  6. Pop some MAC Nylon on your brow bone and tear ducts to highlight
  7. This step is optional but I like to apply some black eyeliner with a cat flick/wing
  8. Apply your mascara and you’re good to go!

This is really one of the simplest yet effective eyeshadow looks you can do. There’s something about that MAC Cranberry that I just can’t get enough of! What about you guys, what are your fave eye shadows that can be applied in a simple wash of colour?

  1. I love this!!! I think I’m a bit scared of cranberry shades, but it really works, makes brown eyes pop. Am going to have to try it. Great post xx

  2. Wowee, such a vibrant palette you have yourself there! Is this the MAC one you were filling up for ages? The look is luurvverrly, and I agree with Sarah, goes well with brown eyes. X X
