It sounds like a beauty nightmare, but in reality it is a must have moment in style. Since Donna Karan, Gareth Pugh and Costello Tagliapietra rocked red on their runways, the hue has been reheated.
Forget ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ every red option available is fair game. The pink tones seem to be the most popular, but Pugh preferred lipstick red shades for his ladies while Costello went with a more orange tint.
This is a repeated trend with Donna garnered attention for using the shade in her Fall 2012 show.
For a double duty duo, try Make Up For Ever’s Pure Pigments in No.6 ‘Bright Red.’ You can mix it in with your clear gloss to create your own personalized color, apply it on the lid for a swash of color, or create a liner by applying with a wet brush.
To score Donna Karan’s pink toned favorite, try Face Stockholm’s Pearl Shadow in ‘Strawberry.’
Start with a neutral eyeshadow base, applying from lash line to brow bone. Then sweep your choice of red shadow across the eyelid and above the crease with a slight upward wing at the outer corners. Next, diffuse the shadow under the lash line and into the inner corner. Complete the look with a black line and mascara or go the extra mile and use a magenta liner to make your look pop.
