Homage/Rendition: Pink & Brown Reverse Smokey Eye

This week for The Makeup Heroes, we decided to share our takes on the gorgeous Upside Down Smokey Eye look by Marlena, of MakeupGeek TV. Here’s her tute – love it!

  1. I loveloveLOVE the colour of your hair in the video you posted. Would you mind telling me what brand and colour you used? It would be very much appreciated. ^^

    P.S. Love the lipstick shade you’re wearing – it’s a shame to hear it was discontinued! 😦

    • Thanks! Over bleached hair, I used Special Effects Napalm Orange, and then a couple days later I mixed 1:1 Special Effects Candy Apple Red and Special Effects Nuclear Red, and applied that on top of the Napalm Orange (so the red shouldn’t fade to a pink). I love Special Effects, and they’ve even got a gallery of customers’ dyejobs, which is where I got the idea for this combo. 🙂
