Red eyeshadow is good for everyone, but its application requires the necessary precautions, under penalty of falling into a “vampire effect”. Perfect beauty ally for the summer, here are the tips from the make-up artist.
1. 50 SHADES OF (EYESHADOW) RED. PERFECT EVEN BY DAY
Crimson is undoubtedly the color of the season and can be declined in different shades: from the brightest to the darkest red to orange tones depending on your preferences. While powerful in itself, it’s not just an evening eyeshadow. Just add a hint of red in a morning or afternoon smokey eye to the center of the eyelid and the look changes immediately without upsetting the daily make-up. ”
2. RED: NOT THE USUAL EYESHADOW
“In fact, not all women have the courage to wear it for fear of the result is too strong: an alternative is to approach this nuance by trying to make up the eye with a red blush that surely occurs in beauty case to get an idea of the effect. ”
3. CORRECT APPLICATION
I recommend applying it on the mobile eyelid and then starting to blend it with a pencil or a black kajal or an anthracite gray so the red becomes more portable and there is no” vampire effect “. It becomes beautiful when combined with a kajal applied inside the conjunctiva and a swipe of mascara on the lower lashes. ”
4. WHO IS IT GOOD FOR?
As a rule, red eyeshadow looks good on everyone, but without a doubt, it is perfect for the green eye because being its complementary color it emphasizes it. Also beautiful on the very clear, blue, cerulean eye. And let’s not forget the black eyes! The result is wonderful. ”
5. RED EYESHADOW AND TANNING
I would say it’s a perfect match. The red eyeshadow stands out a lot on amber skin. In fact it creates a wonderful effect on the skin of Indian and black women. ”
6. FINISH: SATIN OR MATTE?
The satin or metallic version is more suitable for a young eye, but requires perfect, even skin, without imperfections. The opaque one instead gives a velvet effect, almost more natural, and is recommended for a less young eye. ”
7. ERRORS TO AVOID
Red is a very protagonist color. Therefore, graphic tricks should be avoided and smokey eyes should be preferred, even a little worn, almost cast. They are more beautiful, sensual, and give character. I recommend not applying red eyeshadow in case of red dark circles on light skin or bluish dark circles, it would highlight them. Finally, if I apply red eyeshadow, the lips must be bare. So no red or pink lipsticks. If you want a strong color, it is better to opt for a black or a berry as long as it is opaque. ”
8. THE MORE BEAUTY TIP
I find red eyeshadow to be wonderful with collected hair that leaves the forehead and ears exposed. The outfit, on the other hand, is strictly monochrome. I would avoid fantasies and overlap of bright colors. “
