1923 Face of the Day: Red wings with Nouba

When I hear Red Wings, I think wings of fire. What do you think?
I have had this Nouba eyeshadow duo for a really long time now but have never used it. After the stint on New Year eve with glitter, I decided that perhaps my first FOTD for 2013 should be a slight glitter look as well (shame that all the glitter in the eyeshadow ended up on my cheeks though)
Dark & Lovely lipstick, Maybelline dream mousse foundation, Nouba duo eyeshadow, BM Pro eyeshadow (used as a blush), Davis lip liner, Wet n Wild quad, Tara primer, single eyeshadow & liquid liner, Khuraira lipgloss & mascara, Jordana twist-up pencil, Revlon Colorstay foundation,  Ruby Kisses lipgloss, Black Opal setting powder and Motives Photo Finish pressed powder.
 
I layered the two glosses after blending the purple lip liner  properly.  Love how it turned out.
 
I tried a pale pink lip colour with the eye look to see which looked better. I must admit that I kind of prefer this look to the deeper pink one. What do you think?
The red eyeshadow ended up looking more pink though. I am of the opinion that this was due to the fact that I used a cream coloured product as a base ie. Tara eye primer; I will try this product once again with a red base and see how it turns out.
