I have tried to come up with some looks using Mac's Cranberry eyeshadow. You would think that's easy, but it's actually not. Cranberry is a really beautiful color, but one many people (ref. forums, blogs etc) it can make you look bruised if you use it on it's own, or blend it out too much.
That's why I used a paint pot as a base, to make Cranberry more vivid so it wouldn't get that washed-out bruised look.
Most pictures I've seen, Cranberry is paired with a gold toned eyeshadow and I can see why. The two compliment each other really well, but since I hate wearing gold eyeshadow I wanted to find something else. So here it is:
You probably saw that one coming... hahaha. Not very original, but I thought it was a beautiful and wearable look.
