When it comes to creating our makeup looks, we only use red for our lipstick and maybe as an occasional eyeshadow (only when we're feeling extra adventurous). It's a hue that we normally associate with being sultry or sexy, but what you must know is that it can also be used for fresh everyday makeup looks. Below, we have compiled the best ways to incorporate this color into your looks:
Spice up a bronze makeup look by adding red eyeshadow. Take it even a step further by patting some glitter at the center of your lid—this will give it that trendy "wet" look.
Give your pink and peach blushes a break and try a red one. This cherry hue may look dark and intimidating on the pan, but it will actually give you a healthy flush of color once it's on your cheeks. (P.S. It's perfect for morenas!)
With darker complexions, highlighter options are limited, as the usual silver-toned can look a bit ashy. Thankfully, kween Rihanna blessed us with the Fenty Beauty Hibiscus and Cognac Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks. This duo can give morena complexions a blinding glow and pretty flush!
Applying red lipstick is the ultimate power move. There's just no other shade that makes you feel in control. Go for a classic matte like Anne Curtis or top it off with a gloss for a modern take a la Janine Gutierrez.
