Spring may have brought back cool blue tones for eyes, but this season the trend is something much more dramatic: red eyeshadow.
Essentially drama meets punk chic (think Kristen Stewart at the 2013 Met gala), red makeup may be one of the hardest colours to master when it comes to the eyes. However, with Gucci’s cranberry-red shimmer and Emporio Armani’s subtle-yet-flirtatious red eyeliner, we can’t help but want to give this look a try. But before we jump to the punch and risk looking too costumey, we asked the Beauty Panel to share some of their tips and tricks on how to make red eyeshadow work.
Challenge 27: How do you wear red eyeshadow? See the answers now! »
Many of our Beauty Panelists agree that the red smoky eyes is one of the scariest trends to try, but being fearless as they are, they took up the challenge and showed off dramatic looks in their own unique ways. While Ellie Somfelean of My Beauty Box shows us how to tone down the rest of the makeup to complement the red eyeshadow, Janella Panchamsingh from Bold n Beautiful Makeup gives us some tips on how to find the perfect shade to best match our skin tone. Still having trouble getting the look right? Fear not because This Was Forever’s Emily Chan and A Lovely Allure’s Michelle Louie break it down for us on how exactly they achieved the red makeup look for their eyes. Follow theses foolproof steps and we’re sure you’ll be able to recreate the look perfectly.
