BLACK WIDOW: RED EYE SHADOW
Who said red is only good for gloss? What we saw on the catwalks this year made something pretty clear: moving this bright colour from your lips to your eyes is the new trend for Winter 2018. So, forget about the dark shades we are so used to, and let’s light up our dark autumn days — we don’t need any more dull colors after all, do we? You think this is all a bit too much? We are here to change your mind, and surprise you with these makeup trends, straight from the catwalks!
If you’re more into classics, start experimenting slowly. Red cream eyeshadow gets applied onto the eyelid, and framed by mascara and black eyeliner pencil, to lend some depth to your gaze. It is very important here to focus on your eyes when choosing this style, and to use very natural tones on the rest of your face, especially on your lips.
If you love tangerines, look at Xuan HC, Kenzo and Max Mara for a few ideas: powder red eyes shadow can be applied exclusively on the contour of your eye, or even on the sides of your face, almost imitating the effect of a bright blush. If you do this, you can intensify the effect by applying red mascara on your lashes, or by blending the eyeshadow onto your eyebrows — in this case, make sure you don’t go for overly bright shades!
If you’re still unconvinced by the idea of a total red makeup style, you can always tone it down by mixing it with other colors, while still letting red take center stage. Alberta Ferretti shows you how to do this, by applying cream eye-shadow at the center of the eyelid, and placing a small speck of gold in the inner corner of the eye, to illuminate the gaze. All of this will be beautifully framed by a blended line of black eyeliner pencil, which will work as a substitute for mascara.
