As soon as I saw the latest Rouge Bunny Rouge look, Santa Ana, I knew I had to have a go at re-creating it. It's bold but seemed relatively easy to follow in terms of products. You can see a full breakdown and description of placement in Perilously Pale's post here.
I don't own all of the products used (as shown in the image above) so I substituted where necessary with products that I hope are of a similar colour or texture. The red lipstick - Raw Silence was a tough one, as I don't think I have anything quite the same colour or with the same creamy finish. I'm really tempted to buy the Selena Eye Kohl used in the look as the MAC pencil I used as a substitute seems to be reaching the end of it's useful life.
Here are the products I used:
RBR Face Contour Brush // RBR Blusher Brush // Max Factor Second Skin and Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation mixed // Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer // MUFE HD Powder // MAC Bronzer in Golden // Laura Mercier Pink Tourmaline Mosaic Shimmer Bloc to highlight tops of cheeks and brow bone
Sigma E25 Brush // MAC 239 // RBR Large Shader // MAC 219 // MAC Mystery Eye Kohl // RBR Eyeshadows in Umber Firefinch, Unforgettable Oriole and Olive Violeteare
Lips prepped with BECCA Lip Butter // MAC Liner in Cherry // Max Factor Colour Elixir in Ruby Tuesday // Tom Ford lipstick in Smoke Red // MAC lip brush
For the eyes, I used two of the three eyeshadows as used in the Santa Ana look and I substituted Golden Rhea with Unforgettable Oriole as the base lid colour. As I don't have the Loose Glitter Pigments in Sleeping Under the Mandarin Tree, I used a small amount of the Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc on the brow bone. I also applied some to the high points of my cheeks. Highlighter isn't listed in the product breakdown but I can definitely see a sheen on the tops of the cheek.
I primed my skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and used a mix of Max Factor Second Skin and Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. As you may note, all three of these items are on my list of products to use up! I used a little bit of MUFE HD Powder on the T-zone. To be honest, I prefer a less matte base on my skin and would probably have opted for a tinted moisturiser had I not been trying to copy the look.
I tried out two different lipsticks to try and replicate the colour of Raw Silence. Neither are perfect, so of course this gives me the go ahead to buy a new red lipstick without guilt (don't say anything!). Here's how it looks with Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick in Ruby Tuesday...
And now, with Tom Ford lipstick in Smoke Red...
Right, I'm off out to do the second school run of the day wearing this look. Let me know if you have a go at copying this look yourself. Santa Ana will launch at Zuneta tomorrow and my sources tell me there will be a special exclusive gift with any purchase of Rouge Bunny Rouge to celebrate. Shopping lists at the ready girls!
Disclosure: Some of the items I used here were sent to me as press samples but not in connection with this launch (and not exclusively RBR). There is a fairly even mix of purchased items and press samples.
