today I come to you with 4 variations on red, all with no faff, not frills, no complicated techniques. all you’ll need is your fingers and maybe a couple of brushes, at most.
I think red is a colour that suits all skin tones, it’s quite edgy and out of the box, but can be worn in a very sleek, chic, and grungy way. going from very bold, to more subtle, to glittery, I hope I have combined enough ideas for you to overcome any fear of red eyeshadow and it making your eyes look weird or swollen.
Keep in mind, as always, you can use whatever you have on hand and don’t have to go out and splurge on something that you’re not sure will work for you. Brands like Kiko, NYX, Essence and even Sephora Collection (when on sale) are great starting points. If you have easy access to Colour Pop (or don’t mind waiting), it’s a great option, too.
