Red lipstick, especially matte red lipstick, is one of the most popular types of makeup. It’s a bold color that can be worn in many different social and professional settings.
Style #1: Red Shimmery Smokey Eye
Instead of using black, try red. To start, blend a deep crimson eyeshadow into your crease and all-around your eyelids. Then, using the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Violet Beaute, apply burgundy to the outer corners of your eyelids and blend out any sharp edges.
Tap over all over the lid with the Julep Eyeshadow Crème to Powder Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Champagne Shimmer. Highlight your brow bone with a light golden color like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Endless Pearl to finish off the look.
Style #2: All Over Red Matte Lids
If light red isn’t your color, consider using a darker hue to blend out and balance any red-eye makeup look. Start by sweeping a shadow like the Concrete Minerals Eyeshadow all over your crease.
Then, using the brighter red shade on top and bottom lids, seal it off with a blending brush. Use the first deeper hue to smooth out any harsh edges and create a seamless transition between the two colors.
Finish things off with some lash drama by applying the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Blackest Black to your lashes.
Style #3: Deep Red Crease
For a quick and easy glamorous look, paint your crease with a strong crimson color.
To begin, combine a deep burgundy color with the crease and pull it out toward the middle of the lids. Apply a sheer beige color like L’Oreal Paris Infallible in Iced Latte on the center and inner corner of the lids.
Last, apply this Liquid Eyeliner by Lady Gaga & Haus Laboratories, to create a wing effect around your eyes.
Style #4: Red and Gold Smokey Eye
If you’re looking for runway-worthy makeup, try this red and gold smoke. First, apply a deep metallic red shade to your crease.
Then, using the Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow, apply purple on top of the red shadow. Blend it out to soften any harsh lines
Finish off the look with some winged eyeliner and golden mascara.
Style #5: Red Metallic Eyes
If you want something other than dark colors paired with red lips, try this shimmery copper-toned metallic eyeshadow for a night out with friends or date night.
Start by sweeping a shimmery copper shade like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald onto your lids. You can also use this matte eyeshadow on your crease for added depth.
Tips on how to acquire stunning red makeup look for any occasion.
1) Know your skin tone
One of the first things you need to know when applying red lipstick is whether or not it complements your skin tone.
Red colors have the ability to ‘bounce’ off of your face depending on what type of complexion you have.
If your face appears more pink or blue then it would actually be better to avoid wearing true red altogether because it will only highlight the blueness in your skin instead of making red makeup look stand out.
2) Choose the right shade
Before you even start putting your red lipstick on, choose a shade that you know will look good on your skin tone.
You can always go for brighter and bolder shades because these types of makeup looks can be taken down a notch if need be in order to create something more suitable for the workplace or an interview.
If you do not know what color would work well with your complexion, ask one of your family members or friends what works best rather than going to a professional. The risk of going to someone you don’t know is what you want them to say just so they won’t hurt your feelings.
3) Consider buying fake eyelashes when wearing red lipstick
Many celebrities wear fake eyelashes when they decide to wear red lipstick. If you decide not to purchase them, keep in mind that when you apply your mascara it may bleed with the color of your lipstick making your eyes look like they’re ‘glowing’
With so many different types of makeup looks and color options for women, there is no reason why you shouldn’t choose a bold and attractive shade such as red when applying lip makeup. Whether you prefer matte or glossy finishes, there are numerous ways that you can apply this type of makeup for a more dramatic effect.
Don’t be afraid to try a new color or experiment with a bold shade. Just because you’re going for a red makeup look doesn’t mean that you have to stick to the classic red lip.
If this is too much for your taste, opt for either a gloss or matte finish and add other aspects such as false eyelashes or winged liner in order to make it more suitable for your idea of a ‘red makeup look’.
