Going Out Makeup Look: "Cranberry Cool"

By Tina A. - September 09, 2013

Even though I haven't been out and about past sundown a whole lot lately, I thought I'd share with you the makeup look that I usually go for, when I do: a mix of cranberry, dark blue, pink and pale lilac. Yet another colorful look (some of you may remember my summery "Seashore Frosts" FOTD), but in a slightly different direction this time: if anything, the autumnal shades are slowly coming into play.


Now, in all fairness, I do not own the... creative rights for this look: I had seen it on model Karlie Kloss, while perusing the internet sometime ago, but as it turns out, I didn't save the original photo and no amount of going through google images, pinterest or tumblr was enough for me to find what I was looking for. Still, I hope I did it justice, from memory alone.

Here's what I used:



Face
Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation - Shade 50 Vanille Rose
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - Shade 1 Fair
MAC eyeshadow - Omega (for the eyebrows)
The Body Shop Roseflower Blush - 01 Pink (limited edition)
Korres Monoi Oil Bronzing Powder - 02 Sunglow Warm
theBalm Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Transclucent Powder


Eyes
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream - Shade 17
MAC Eyeshadow - Cranberry
MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow - Blue Flame
MAC Eyeshadow - Wedge (crease)
L'Oreal khol - 114 Night Blue (vintage at this point, trying to finish it)
Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara

Lips
MAC lipstick - Fashion Mews (Hello Kitty collection)

Hope you liked this look - maybe enough to try it next time you're out? :)

What's your go-to going out look lately? 
And, if you own MAC Cranberry, what do you usually pair it with? I need more ideas!

  5. You should try a different shade of lipstick with this look, it really clashes.
    Love the eyes tho.

    1. @Pink_Fish: Thank you, yes, it is a unique look, which is why I chose to recreate it (and the only reason I remember "unique" so well is because it was one of the tougher words in the "fill in the blanks" exercises, haha)! :)

  7. Oh I love this makeup look! I'd never thought Cranberry eyeshadow could pair with such a pale pink lipstick, but it does and it looks absolutely beautiful! And the blue pop of coulour on the lower lashline makes that smokey eye a bit more modern. I wanna copy it! Now, to find a dupe for Cranberry...

    1. @Evi: Hmm, I finding a Cranberry dupe may not be that easy, maybe NYX might have sth similar, but it's definitely one of those signature MAC shades! Glad you enjoyed the look, definitely a proof that opposites attract! :)
