Finding an actual red for eye makeup is really, REALLY hard! But Marvel is just spectacular!!! I think it's best to give your eyes a base (lighter or darker, depending on your skin tone). For me, I used the Sangria as a base, and then used a little cream shadow overtop to give just a bit of a primer, and then dabbed on the Marvel over that. The result was the most incredible red I've ever gotten on my eyes. I even did white eyeshadow overtop to give it a real 'Marvel' look ;) Apologies for the sleepy look, my eyes are very hooded. But I wanted you all to see how awesome this color turned out!
