Fourth week into gemstone-inspired eye makeup, can I get an A-men?! If you’re new to TheFabZilla, this is my attempt to revisit under-utilized makeups from my stash. It also allows me to further my skills as a makeup enthusiast.
So let’s talk Ruby, my birth stone month! It’s considered to be the king of gems and represents love, wisdom and health. Trivia: my first major purchase in my early 20s was a ruby jewelry set: earrings (photographed), necklace and ring. I shunned going out and giving in to impulse purchases for several months so I can save money and buy my first adult jewelry pieces. Nearly 20 years later, the sentimental value attached to them is priceless.
I chose to give ruby a smoky twist since pinkish red is hard to pull off as a single shade. I used Rainbow Eyeshadow 124 from Inglot Cosmetics Freedom System for lids, subtle cut crease, as transition color above the crease, and lower lash line; Blackheart from Urban Decay Naked 3 for outer eye corner, lightly on crease, and lower lash line; Dust for inner eye corner and Strange for brow arch, also from Naked 3. Fall is almost upon us so I finished the look with gothic-vampy-blackened berry lips (Dolce and Gabbana Matte Dolce Inferno). Other makeups used are listed below:
Butter London Wink Eye Pencil Crayon
Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara Bodacious Black Honey
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mood Exposure
Osmosis Age-Defying Concealer
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation Golden Sand (deluxe sample, I’m still road-testing it)
Dolce and Gabbana Matte Lipstick Dolce Inferno

Wowza, gorgeous! I love how the transition shades intensify that ruby color. Glad to hear that you bought yourself serious jewelry in your 20s. I did the same through the my adulthood & never regretted it
Thanks Allison! Same here, it makes me smile whenever I look at my collection.
AMEN! Such a gorgeous look, and I absolutely LOVE the jewel-inspired looks! Your earrings are stunning!
Hot Damn! You are smoking! This is my favorite look on you! <3
This look is so sexy and vampy! I swear you pull off any eye shadow color flawlessly!
Beautiful! I love red eyeshadow looks. I love costume jewelry, but every lady needs to have some serious pieces. Jewelry is a great investment, IMHO.
Holy moley, that's a lovely look!
So pretty girlie, I love these colors together. You can rock any look vampy or beachy you are set!
Very sex-ay gurrrl!
Giving me fall vibes with those rich reds, fabulous!
I could never wear those eyeshadow shades but they are perfect on you.
I've always liked red on the eyes. Idk why but love.
I love how you acquired your first rubies, and that they're still sentimental to you. Some great ideas for me to steal from you in this look – I love the colors, but haven't figured out how to pull off a red eye look without looking like I have pinkeye.
Hot, hot, hot! This is a gorgeous look!
Ooooh That is a GREAT take on the smokey eye look! I love that pop of red peeking out. Very nice 🙂
The earrings are beautiful, well worth saving up for! My very first adult purchase was a Tissot watch. I don't wear it anymore because we have cell phones nowadays, but it still holds sentimental value 🙂 And your makeup is absolutely gorgeous!
You look fabulous!
Slay on you gorgeous beast. 😀 Love love those lips on you girl… they are hot damn awesome. I love deep purple lips on me and we have similar skin tones 😀 gorgeous.
Those eyes! Incredibly gorgeous shades.
This look is everything! Your lips are giving me life!
