Have you seen our “Santa Baby” story? Do you love the red lips, eyes and cheeks, that we featured? Then keep reading! We asked our trusted Ellie Tobin, which products she would recommend and how to apply them. So … are you ready for red?
Benetint - by Benefit
If the idea of a red eye is a little bit too adventurous for you, then a berry stained cheek is a good start for exploring the red-trend! For a natural looking flush of red – Ellie recommends Benetint from Benefit, which is super easy to apply. Just put a couple dots on the apples of your cheeks and blend it in with your fingers. Look Number 1 … done!
Color Tattoo 24hr Gel-Cream Eyeshadow - by Maybelline New York
Do you want to make your peepers pop and try something new? Then use a red eyeshadow that has a purple hue. “If it is more of a blue-ish kind of red, you avoid looking tired.” says Ellie and shows us the Maybelline New York Color Tattoo in ‘Metallic Pomegranate’. Who knew that “seeing red” could be so beautiful?
Lip Pencil in Vino - by Mac Cosmetics
Ahhhh … a classic – the red lip. But wait! Ellie loves to give classics a spin and instead of using a berry red she goes for a dark and earthy violet. If you blend it in with your fingers and just use it as a stain, it will give the most gorgeous and yet edgy looking burgundy lips! Some gloss or balm on top and you are ready to hit the town – thanks Ellie!
