This red hot look is inspired by Sky Living‘s The Face from episode 3 – Team Naomi’s Dramatic Glamour.

I began by preparing my base by applying:

Bobbi Brown corrector in Dark Peach on my forehead and chin using my No7 foundation brush

MAC Prep+Prime Face Protect SPF50 primer on my nose using my fingers

Bobbi Brown corrector in Dark Bisque under my eyes and the darker areas of my lids using my Bobbi Brown Cream Blending brush and blended using my fingers

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Golden under my eyes and the darker areas of my lids using my Bobbi Brown Cream Blending brush and blended using my fingers

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation in Honey 5.5 using my No7 foundation brush on my cheeks and nose

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation in Golden 6 using my No7 foundation brush on forehead, chin and nose and blended this in to the lighter shade of foundation

Bobbi Brown loose powder in pale yellow to set the concealer using my Ruby & Millie travel sized cheek brush

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF12 Honey 5 on my cheeks and nose using my EcoTools powder brush

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF12 Golden 6 on my forehead and chin using my EcoTools powder brush

For my eyes I applied:

The pale shimmery yellow colour from the Sleek The Original 594 eyeshadow palette using my Ruby & Millie travel sized eye brush from the brow bone to my eyebrows then decided it was far too shimmery for a highlight

The very pale brown colour from the Sleek Monaco 657 eyeshadow palette over the shimmery yellow colour to tone it down, using my Ruby & Millie travel sized eye brush

MAC eyeshadow in Swiss Chocolate Matte using my Ruby & Millie travel sized eye brush, all over my lids, into the crease and just above the brown bone

MAC Fluidline gel eyeliner in Blacktrack and MAC brush 209 along the lashline in a flick, starting with the flick then working my way to the middle of my eyelid, then from the inner corner of my eyelid towards the middle.  I lined the lower lashline using the same Fluidline and brush.

Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany 10 using my Bare Minerals Angled Liner Brush to define, darken, thicken and generally dramatise my eyebrows!

Two coats of  Maybelline the Falsies Volum’ Express Flared mascara in Very Black to my top lashes and one coat on my bottom lashes.

I contoured my cheeks using the Sleek Face Contour Kit in Medium 885 and my travel sized Clinique blusher brush, placing the dark colour in the hollows of my cheeks, the highlighter on my cheekbones sweeping it up to my temples, and blending the two colours where they met.

For my lips I applied Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner in 10 Red Rush all over my lips then Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday 715 straight from the tube over the top.  I blotted my lips then applied another coat but it looked uneven so I used my Ruby & Millie lip brush to apply some more lipstick.  I took a few pictures then decided to line the outside of my lips again with the lip liner.

If I was going out I would add false lashes for full on Dramatic Glamour!
