MAKE IT BERRY

A cranberry eye is rich alternative to the classic smokey eye—and deceptively flattering on everyone. "The look is all about the pigment, shine and texture of the color—the trick is the keep layering and varying the shadow until you get the depth you want," explains Guilis. First, use a medium crease brush such as Sonia Kashuk Medium Eye Shadow Brush (1), to create the shape of the shadow around the eye (Guilis recommends MAC Cranberry Eye Shadow), then extend that color underneath the lids with a smaller brush. To achieve the look's high beam complexion—first apply NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (2) on the nose, under the eyes, chin and forehead, then blend the pigment out onto the skin using Neutrogena Healthy Glow Sheers® (3).
