Red dress, red underwear, red lips and nails may sound familiar to you. But red eyeshadow? Probably not. Maybe only a clown would say “Oh yes I use it every single day for my shows!” But it’s not like that! Red eyeshadow can be worn by you as well, as long as you know how to wear it!
I have to admit red eyeshadow is a bit tricky to apply and I get why so many people are afraid of this eyeshadow colour.Worn incorrectly it can make you look ill, as though you have had some sort of allergic reaction or even worse …as though you’ve escaped from the zombie world! Well, if you take the following tips into consideration then I ‘m telling you… your eyes will deifinitely look spellbinding!
But before starting to explain how I use it here are some very important tips:
After having moisturized my face and my eye area I apply my base as usual and then I start with the eyes. If you are afraid that you will make a mess with the eyeshadows then do your eyes first and then apply the base.
First I apply a darker red/brown cream eyeshadow as a base on the lids, I blend it in the crease with a clean brush. After that, the time has come for the eyeshadow in question! I apply the red colour on my eyelids (only on the ‘movable’ part) and I blend it out in the crease first with a clean brush and then using some red/brown matte eyeshadow.
On top but only in the outer corners I apply some shimmery dark coppery brown eyeshadow and I blend it inwards and also I apply the same colour under my eyes.Next step is to apply some really dark brown eyeshadow only in the outer corners (blended up- and outwards) for more definition.
Don’t be afraid to experiment.
