Makeup under the red dress

Makeup under the red dress

At the celebrations you always want to be the most-most. A woman who is ready to become the brightest at a celebration can choose a scarlet or red outfit. To do this, you must be decisive, as a woman in such a dress will certainly attract attention. To enhance the effect, you need to choose the right accessories and makeup. When the jewelry is already selected, you need the final touch - thoughtful makeup.


First you need to remember which colors emphasize red and which, on the contrary, reduce its brightness. The selection of colors depends on the color type, but some shades are equally good for everyone. For example, orange or pink lipstick on lips will add sexuality. The same effect can be achieved with coral lipstick. In addition, you can take the beige, pastel and vanilla colors.

More courageous and confident girls use gradient lipsticks from black to red and bright scarlet lips that repeat the color of the dress. It is desirable that the color of the lipstick coincides with the color of the dress (although this does not apply to all color types) or be more saturated, but not too bright.

Pearl lipsticks and lip gloss will not suit the image, it is better to choose matte shades.

Not all women prefer lipstick when applying make-up. Under the red dress, they can choose lip gloss. Its shade may be pink, brown (for lipsticks in this make-up this color is unacceptable), red. It is in this makeup, as in no other, you need to choose what will be the focus: on the lips or on the eyes. Often this choice depends on the color type to which the woman can relate.

Exceptions when choosing an accent make-up in nude tones, but with them you should be careful, as they do not fit every dress in red tone.

Light-skinned girls will look brighter if they focus on the lips. Under the red dress such makeup is often chosen. Sexy red lips in girls with porcelain skin should be perfectly combined with nails. Manicure in this case requires a special approach.

Girls with puffy lips should beware of such makeup, it may not suit them. In that case, if you still want to focus on the lips, the choice should be made in favor of unsaturated and dull shades of lipstick. In this case, the eye should be emphasized eyeliner. If the choice falls on the shadow, then they should be gold or silver with glitter.

Mascara should not be applied too tightly. For any type of skin in evening make-up, shimmering powder will look spectacular.

Different make-up should be for girls with different hair color. The first stage of makeup is the same for everyone: it is necessary to cleanse the skin of the face, hide the bumps and imperfections of the skin, to dust.

For dark hair

The most difficult thing with a make-up for this outfit will have brunettes, since this type requires the most care in strokes.

They, in combination with the red dress, will strengthen all the irregularities and give the skin of the face an unpleasant pink color that will look vulgar.

  • Let's start with eye makeupFor which you need shadows and charcoal pencil. The colors of the shadows should be white, gray and black. First, we apply white, covering them all over the eyelid. Next, the eyebrows cover the skin with gray shadows. As a result of this action should be a thin gray strip or, in other words, semi-oval.
  • Next we take a charcoal pencil. It should be applied to the entire eyelid: the lower and the upper part. So the image will not look unnecessarily sharp. Black shadows give a soft look. Eye makeup for brunettes completes the application of voluminous black mascara.
  • New make-up styleThe one that is very popular is the best in this case. This style is ombre. To make it, you need a black pencil again. It should be applied to the contour so that the lips appear narrow. They may seem very dark, but not for long. Next, you need a lipstick of a suitable color, on which we extinguish a pencil. The result should be a gradient that seems very interesting to others. To give the lips sensuality in the center of the lips is added a drop of white lipstick. The color used for the ombre can be any, the main thing is that the pencil should be darker, this will create a transition from one color to another.
  • At the end of makeup need to emphasize the cheekbones. To do this, take a peach or pink blush.


Blondes who have blue eyes, it will be more difficult to pick up makeup to the side along with red, but using our advice, they will cope with the task.

  • Blonde eyeswho decide to wear a red dress should be painted with pearl or blue-white shades. The second layer of shadows should be taken from cold shades. They can be green and purple depending on the color of the eyes. You can take a blue tint.
  • Before applying mascara should use liner. It should be applied under the eyelashes. Strict black arrows only spoil the face of a woman with blond hair.
  • To make-up does not come out too bright, it should be muffled by lip makeup. Glitter of a delicate tone is applied on them, for example, pink, beige. You should carefully consider the selection of rouge for a red outfit. Makeup artists recommend using salmon tones.

For the blond

Girls with such a touch of curls will be ideally suited for “Smokey Ice”. It is important to remember that all makeup should be done in cool shades in order to perfectly highlight the natural and natural beauty. Deliberately nude makeup can look impressive, but the selected pastel colors can play a cruel joke and a girl with light brown hair will look inconspicuous.

  • First, as usual, paint the eyes. Apply a thick layer of gray shadows to the folds of the eyebrows. Dark gray finish creating the effect of "Smokey". It is important to ensure that it is not too noticeable. Using more than two shades of shadows is undesirable.
  • Graphite-colored liner will add to the eyes expressiveness. The peculiarity of the type of appearance is that pale skin and bright eyes look too faded and the face needs to be expressive.
  • Lips with this makeup should be the only accent. It is precisely for fair-haired girls that bright red shades of lipstick will suit the best. Pale pink will help to remove excessive pallor. But it is important not to overdo it so that the face from the nobly pale does not turn into an unhealthy pinkish.

For redheads

Fiery beauty in a red dress - a win-win to attract attention. But for the image to be really beautiful, it requires careful makeup. This is especially true of those girls who want to hide the freckles characteristic of redheads.

  • Shadows should choose a shade so that they are in harmony with the hair color. These can be brown, bronze. In some cases, beige look good. Effectively emphasize the eyes of coffee and chocolate shades. The “Smokey ice” effect from gray-gray-gray shades will look very sexy. Ginger need to abandon the use of eyeliner makeup.
  • Black mascara can spoil the impression from the color of the eyes, so you should choose a brown and more close to the hair color range. The color of the lipstick should not repeat the color of the dress, although they should echo. It is important to remember that lips are not the main accent. They only emphasize the beauty of the dress.

How to choose cosmetics?

For greater effect, they can be combined by working through different parts of the century in different colors and different brushes. The same applies to green-eyed girls.
