Red and Purple Smokey Eye using Heritage Rouge Pigment

When MAC re-released Heritage Rouge pigment, my love of it was rekindled. It is the most most gorgeous, deep-warm red. Paired with a deep plum it created a smoldering smokey eye that I love. I barely ever repeat eye looks, except for the very simple and quick ones, but I've done this a few times already.
