ROCKIN’ THE RED
Make-up to Match Your Ginger Color
We all know the saying, “Blondes have more fun.” Well, a new phrase is taking over: “Reds are more rad.” Going red is a bold and daring move and with these six steps from celebrity makeup artist Amy Hollier of Luxe Beauty Team at Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon, you can rock the red with the perfect make-up to match your vixen look.
Step 1: Prime Eyelids
To start, use a light brown or copper cream shadow (I used Mac paint pot in “Groundwork”) on eyelids and buff out with a fluffy eye shadow brush so nothing is in the crease.
Step 2: Eye shadow
Apply copper/gold shadow to inner half of eyelids closest to the tear ducts. Then apply a bronze/brown shadow to outer half of eyelids. Blend the crease with a clean, fluffy brush.
Step 3: Eyeliner
For a more fashion/editorial look, opt for a dramatic cat eyeliner but in a plummy brown rather than black. It’s much more wearable and accents red hair perfectly. Start by lining the lashline, then building the outer corners and extending out and up at the end of the lashline. Check eye to eye for balance. I used Bobbi Browns “Black Plum Ink” gel eyeliner with a pointed liner brush.
Step 4: Eyelashes
Curl, curl and curl. Then apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes. Finish with 2 or 3 individual flares of false lashes on each outer corner.
Step 5: Gorgeous Skin
Wipe away any fallen eye shadow and moisturize entire face. Next apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer (I used Mac Face & Body).
Next apply a little glow to the temples and cheekbones with a liquid or cream bronzer (I used Makeup Forever Uplight#23). Lightly dust the center of the face with translucent powder to set. Add a little soft peachy blush to cheeks (I love Smashbox soft lights tint).
Step 6: Lips
Finish the look with a tinted lip balm. I chose the Clinique Chubby Stick in “Whole Lotta Honey” for it’s beautiful golden nude color.
