Look of the Week : Raw as Red

For this Look of the Week I want to share with you my absolute favorite look/trend of 2016. It all started when I discovered a new make up collection by @chanelofficial and then watched a video of make up artist @luciapicaofficial creating a high-definition and daring look on actress @kristen_stewart_offical I was really captivated and couldn’t wait to try it on myself. Coco Chanel once said “Red is the color of life, of blood, I love red.” Red exudes power, vulnerability, and warmth. It is a color that occurs naturally in the face, and it honestly couldn’t be more flattering.

 

To create this look, sweep on layers of bronze and brown eyeshadow all over the eyelid, then begin to highlight areas such as the inner corners of the eye and just above the crease with a red hued eyeshadow and blend it in. I used #maccosmeticsPassionate eyeshadow.

I used #maccosmetics Cherry Lip Liner on the water line under my eyes. This sounds crazy but it brings incredible intensity to the eyes and is surprisingly alluring. Blend in your under eye area with the same Bronze and Red eyeshadow and don’t forget a layer of mascara. Complete this fabulous look with a bright red lip in one of my favorite go-to colors, #maccosmetics Red.

I hope you give this look a try. No matter your skin tone or age this look is 100% SLAY!
