One of the many best things about the holiday season is everyone gets to spend some time with their loved and dear ones. This season is also about hosting parties and get together to bring in the holiday spirits and make the season all the more joyful and interesting. And the kind of joy we feel while dressing up or putting on the best makeup is just a great feeling in itself considering it’s not every day that we get to get ready or sport glam makeup. While sticking to a nude or no-makeup makeup look is a pretty safe way to get ready, sometimes, you should push yourself out of the comfort zone and experiment with your look, especially when it comes to the color used in your makeup look.
Instead of playing safe, try experimenting with bold and bright shades. Of all the colors you can experiment with, red will definitely stand out. Since eyes will remain the focus of the entire look this year, you should use this opportunity to take your eye makeup game to a whole new level. Red eye makeup look is your sure-shot way to draw attention and make yourself stand out from the crowd.
Listed below are 5 different ways to rock a red eye makeup look this holiday season.
Pick a shade that complements your skin tone
In order to pull off a red eye makeup look effortlessly, it’s crucial to pick a shade that complements your skin tone. Picking any random color might make you look the complete opposite of what you were trying to achieve, and you don’t want to take this risk during the holiday season. Therefore, stick to the shade that will complement your skin tone. For instance, if you have deep skin tone, you should stick to a bright red color with orange undertones, and if you have light skin tone, then you should opt for light shades of red.
Keep the rest of your makeup simple
Since you have used a red shade on your eyes, which is pretty bold and statement-looking in itself, you don’t want to go overboard with the rest of your makeup and look OTT. Let your eyes be the focal point of your look and do all the talking. For base, use a good foundation and add some highlighter to high points of your face. As far as your lips are concerned, you should opt for a nude lipstick or lip gloss, but you can also rock a classic red lip if you want to add extra spice to the look.
Concealer is vital
Red eyeshadows can make anyone look super tired due to the blue hues, and this might also end up enhancing under eye dark circles. One of the only ways to deal with this issue is by using a good coverage concealer. Using a liquid concealer will help to conceal the under eye area whilst also adding a brightening effect to it.
Try a red smokey eye look
Smokey eye look is not easy to create, it definitely requires some great skills, however, if you are a pro at doing smokey eye, then you should try recreating it using a different shade such as red. You can create the look using two bold shades- black and red. In order to make each eyeshadow color pop out, you will need to use an extra concealer. You can finish off the look by adding two coats of mascara for a more dramatic look.
Give red cat eye a try
One of the simplest yet chicest ways to add red shade to your eye makeup is by wearing a red cat eye. Try keeping the rest of your look pretty simple and make sure to add loads of mascara to your lashes to accentuate your look.
