Start by priming the eyelids, and apply concealer to cover any dark spots, bags or blemishes. This is a fairly dramatic makeup look so you need the area around your eyes to look clear and bright. Since the dark red colors will make your eyes look bigger and bolder, they will also emphasize dark circles if any so make sure they are properly concealed. You can even put some eye drops to ensure that there is no redness in your eyes as this will make them look smaller with the heavy makeup.
Apply red eye shadow to the outer corner of the eyelid moving inwards. Remember to carefully choose the color as per your outfit. It is better to opt for maroon, rust or deep red colors. If you choose a bright red, it may look more scary than appealing. Now apply the red eye shadow along the crease and mix it with the eye shadow at the outer corner. Blend it till has blurry edges and appears like a gradient of color.
Apply a white eye shadow below the brow bone to highlight and also apply some to the center of the eyelid that we had left blank. You can even dab a little bit of white to the inner corner of the eye to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
Use a brush and apply black eye shadow to the outer corner of the eyelid making a V to suit the shape of the eye. Now blend the black inwards to create a smokey effect with the red. Smudge it with your ring finger so that you have appropriate control. Apply the black shadow along the lower waterline as well and smudge it lightly with your fingertip or a blending brush.
And now your beautiful smokey red eye makeup is done!
