WARNING! 100% PURE CAM WHORING (Sorry to disappoint anyone but my blog doesn't contain any pornographic materials ;))

After seeing red eye make up from fellow bloggers such as Jheng, Mhean and Shen, I wondered if the colour would suit me and what's the better way to find out than trying it on myself?

However, as you'll see on photos (lots of them ha ha ha!) below, although I honestly tried to pull off a red eye make up but it turned out to be pink :( sadly. I think I have not been able to choose the right shades of red. Never mind... I'll have another go using my 120 palette and Shu Uemura make up to find out if it's the colour or is it really me who's hopeless with reds.

...and of course, I'd also like to emphasize that I have used NYX and E.L.F. make up in this FOTD (turned cam whoring - surprise surprise!), instead of my high end ones... well, aside from my foundations and pressed powder.

In this photo, I wore the following:
Highlight: NYX Single E/S in Skin (ES83)
Eye Lids: NYX Single E/S in Sunset (ES85)
Creases and Lower Lash Lines: NYX Single E/S in Burgundy Pearl (ES158)
Upper Lash Lines: E.L.F. Brightening Eye Liner in Black
Blusher: NYX Powder Blush in Desert Rose (PB17)
Lip Liner: E.L.F. Feather Proof Moisturizing Lip Liner in Bitter
Lipstick: E.L.F. Custom Lips in Sugar Plum
Lipstick: E.L.F. Custom Lips in Crimson (on top of sugar Plum)

I'll be going on 10 days summer holiday up north of the country and I won't be able to update my blog for that period of time. I'd be missing you guys but I'll catch up soon as I come back from my holiday. Have fun everyone with your summer holiday! Don't forget to slap on those sunscreen lotion :)
