Make up look: Smokey eye and classic red lip on a budget

Smokey eye and Classic Red Lip make up look

A smokey eye, classic red lip look is so powerful and sexy! I absolutely love it and even better, let us do it on  a budget!!

This look is a night time look but can also be rocked as an office look you know when you have that big presentation and you want to look all powerful and beautiful at the same time. All products used are inexpensive and are easily available at Clicks or Dischem. Lets  get started.


Primer: I used the Maybelline Baby skin primer

Foundation: I used the LA Girl Foundation in the shade bronze, I used a dense  foundation brush and tied up the look using a Beauty Blender  to remove any harsh streaks

Concealer: I highlighted my cheeks and my nose with LA Girl Pro Conceal in the colour Medium Beige and used a Beauty Blender to blend it out.


I started with the brown shade on the Catrice Chocolate Nudes palette then I used the Shimmery dark green shade on the Wet n Wild colour icon Comfort Zone Eye Shadow palette on the outer corner of my eyes and then slightly blended inwards. I used the rose gold shade on the same palette on the inner corner of my eyes and blended the whole look to be seamless .

Highlight and contour

I contoured using the Beauty Treats Blush Trio palette and highlighted using the gold shade on the Essence All about Gold palette


I outlined my lips using the Smudge lip pencil in Robust Red and filled the rest of my lips using the Essence long lasting lip liner  in Ready for Red

Here is the final look!

    Great post for a girl who doesn’t like spending her coins on make up products – Me 🙂 (simply because I rarely wear full on make up). Nicely done hun. You look stunning.
