Red & Black Box


There’s something scandalously sensual about the colors red and black together. It paints a picture of sophistication and mystery, like a dangerous package just waiting to be opened. Bring out your darker, wilder side with Althea’s Red & Black Box! This specially curated box features products that are made for that luxuriously-looking smokey eye, perfect for a night out. Here’s the beauty breakdown on Althea’s Red & Black Box (and a quick tutorial too!).


Witch’s Pouch Get It Easy Dual Brow Pencilcara
Brows are a great way to give your look some structure. This 2-in-1 product comes with a brow pencil on one end to give you precise lines, and a “browcara” on the other to fill in, tint and hold those little hairs in place. How cool and handy is this? Definitely great for traveling with!

How to use: Using the pencil side, draw onto the brows according to its shape. Then, use the browcara side to brush through in the direction of growth to blend out and hold the hairs in place.

Clio Pro Layering Eye Palette in Smoky Top
A well-crafted eyeshadow look can really give you that je ne sais quoi factor. You know, that one that makes every head turn your way in a room as you strut in. Work it, girl! This palette is perfect for crafting out a number of looks including daytime bright peepers and sultry, nighttime smoky eyes, thanks to it's 10 neutral and deep hues.

How to use: Select the color you’d like to use and apply onto the lids using your finger or brushes.



Y.E.T. Me7 Waterproof Colourful Liner in Black Gang
This sleek eyeliner is great for tying in the eyes and giving definition to a smoldering, smoky look. This waterproof formula glides on easily and it’s in a pigmented black that covers in one swipe. Plus, this eyeliner also has a tapered brush tip that allows for the thinnest, pointiest edges (perfect for cat eye looks).

How to use: Pull to open and apply onto the eye line to define the eye shape.


Secret Key Miracle Fit Contour in Medium and Dark
Okay, so contouring is basically plastic surgery in a tube, right? Sure, it may sometimes be hard to master, but with the right products (and a little practice), you’ll have that chiseled look down in no time! These cream shade glide on and blend out easily onto the skin, so you don’t have to worry about streakiness. Just make sure you patiently blend out before moving onto the next step.

How to use: Twist up and apply onto the low points of the face (like the hollows of cheeks, sides of nose, jawline, and temples) and blend out using a sponge or brush.


Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Grapefruit Jelly
We can’t get over the absolutely adorable packaging of this blush! This peachy powder is great for adding some color to your look. Get freshly pinched cheeks by swirling a brush or using the puff this comes with and sweeping that on for that timeless flush.

How to use: Pop open and pick up some product with puff provided, then apply onto the apples of the cheeks and blend upwards towards the temples.


Chica-Y-Chico Mat Fix Lip in Mata Hari
A look like this wouldn’t be complete without a classic, bold red lip. This lipstick from Chica-Y-Chico is a pigmented liquid lipstick formula that glides on like butter onto the lips, giving full coverage in one swipe. However, this product does not dry down like conventional matte lipsticks so you might want to pop it in your purse for touch-ups throughout the night. It does leave a slight stain on the lips to prolong its wear time though so you won’t have to reapply that many times.

How to use: Apply directly onto the lips using applicator provided. For a chic gradient lip, apply to the center of the lips and blend outwards.
