When it comes to makeup, nothing rivals the power of red. And this season, the colour is multi-tasking and showing up on lips, cheeks, and eyes!

The Fearless Red Shadow

Who's afraid of the red eye? No need to be! The trick lies in a shade that can actually work in real life—instead of a bold hue, try a copper-y red or a pink-ish version. A fluffy brush will deposit less colour and let you build up, so use that. Add a black cat-eye for contrast, so you look more cool, and less contagious.

Cherry Cheeks 

Most Popular

A red blush may look scary in the box, but if applied lightly, gives cheeks a youthful, natural flush. Blend the product in a boomerang shape from your brow bone to the top of the cheekbone, and add a touch to the tip of your nose—so it looks like you just ran around the block. 

An Ultra- Glossy Affair 

 If you love drama, this version is tailor-made for you! Glossy lips work great with a matte complexion, so follow your foundation with a setting powder. For crisper edges, use a concealer pen around your lips. It's all about high definition, baby! 

Truly, Matte-ly 

 If you enjoy the spotlight, matte lips will get you all that! The right shade matters, and it helps to know whether you're a cool or warm-toned girl (if the veins under your wrist are greenish, you're 'warm'; purple or blue veins mean you're 'cool'). When shopping for one, look for terms like 'matte', '18-hour' or 'long-lasting', and avoid 'sheer' or 'semi-matte'.
