Red clothing- what make-up colors?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I like wearing red but I don't know what color eyeshadow, blush or lipgloss color looks best. What colors do you girls usually wear when you wear red clothing?

red is MY COLOR!!! i love doing a dark charcoal smoky eye with a bronze base for eyes. and a sheer bronze lippie. red looks so good with warm metallics, i usually keep in that theme.

Gold bronzey eyshadows look really nice. A sultry smokey eye also works beautifully most of the time.

What about blush colors? I am always so unsure if I should go pink, neutral, or bronze?

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

If I wear red I usually go with a peachy or apricot type color. Or just a very light dusting of bronzer in the place of blush.

i forego blush most of the time when wearing red and use a deeper bronzer.

I think that blush and lip color looks best natural/bronze. As for e/s, I agree with smokey looks, natural, or brown tones.

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

I usually go with neutrals- bronze/brown colors with a light brown gloss, or a lighter smokey eye and nude lips. I've never used red lips at all, red clothing or not. I just don't know how to do it right and pull it off!

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

I agree with the brown, grey, and black suggestions above but I also like silver metallic eyes or shimmery purple eyes...sometimes I'll even do baby pinks with a blood red top.

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

When wearing red, I consider it a strong color by itself so I'll do very neutral make-up. I might do a smokey eye with bronze or gold eyeshadows, with a nude or clear lipgloss.

If i am wearing a bright top, red or otherwise, or if the print is loud i go with a neutral pallette...

I agree with the natural palette idea.

Bronzes, Gold, and black eyeshadows tend to work wonderfully with red.

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, girls! Now I feel better knowing what to wear with red. I use to always wear silver eyeshadow with red and while it didnt look horrible, it wasn't the best color to wear with it. It looked too frosty in my opinion. Maybe if it was a more sheer silver it would be pretty. I have tons of gold/bronzey eyeshadows so I am excited to try it out when I wear red!

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

i was just at an event today and this girl was wearing red. i thought of you!
she had a pearl sheen eyeshadow all over and a deep taupe on the outer v only, and a strong black liquid line, soft smudged line lower lashes. soft petal colored blush, and RED RED RED lips... looks VERY retro. i loved it.

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

Sounds really pretty! I guess I always thought red lips were not a good idea if you were wearing red, because they seemed to clash. But I am starting to change my mind. I just can't pull of bright red lips very well. Thanks for thinking of me, Jen!!

Re: Red clothing- what make-up colors?

I Love gray eye shadow with reds that lean toward maroon, or golds. If the red leans toward oranges, peaches on cheeks, browns and taupes on eyes.
