When I was in the hospital
I was roomed with a schizophrenic
And she was the most gentle person I have ever met
There was a boy with a long deep slit across his neck
Who told very funny jokes
A girl who never spoke a word
Would draw the most beautiful pictures
The boy who shook with anxiety
Could hold the most intelligent conversations
Even the girl who screamed in her sleep and picked at her skin
Had a heart the size of the ocean
We are not who you think we are

Indigo-Purple-Red smoky eye pictorial
Afraid of red shadows? Try it in a 3-color transition paired with cooler tones like blue and purple. Guarantee it doesn’t look garish or too “tropical” and loud.
Do note that I used mainly loose pigments but you can use regular metallic pressed shadows. There’s no special reason to use pigments; I just had them on hand.
You will just need:
Black creamy shadow (soft kajal sticks, gel liners etc will work well too)
Blue or blue-violet metallic shadow (I used MAC Cornflower pigment)
A deep red metallic shadow or at least a wine/burgundy shade if you can’t find a red (I used a very old jar of discontinued I Nuovi pigment called Garnet; many mineral makeup sellers and online makeup stores sell metallic reds now)
A medium purple metallic that is not darker than the blue or red (I used I Nuovi’s pigment in Ultraviolet)
Black matte shadow

"Tool-tips"
For brushes, I would suggest a synthetic brush for blending out the edges of the black paint. I used a fluffy tapered synthetic buffer from 13rushes.
For laying on the metallic pigments, it’s best to use a flat, firm brush so you can pat/pack the color on, and you don’t get fallout everywhere on your cheeks. 
And for applying smoky black around the socket line, you can use a smaller pointy buffer brush like the 13rushes one, or an eyeliner smudger (mine is from Sephora). Don’t use a big fluffy blender because you don’t want the black to go everywhere, or too far up your brow bone.
