It's hard to wear red, berry, cherry, and pink eyeshadow on your eyelids. There's always a risk of you ending up looking like you have pinkeye or allergies. But with all the cherry-themed makeup collections coming out and more celebs wearing the fruity hue on their lids, we're not surprised if you finally want to try it for yourself.
So, if you're a beginner in wearing red or cherry eyeshadow, say hello to your new peg: Yassi Pressman! At a recent event, she sported the bold color with a mauvey nude lip and a hot pink dress.
To get the *fresh* look, MUA Anthea Bueno kept the shade concentrated on her upper lashline and winged it out. By doing this, she accentuated Yassi's peepers without drowning them in pigment.
If you're thinking of sporting cherry eyeshadow or a shade in the same color family, take note of these tips:
Use a volumizing mascara.
One way you can avoid the looking like you've caught an allergic reaction is by applying layers of mascara on your top and bottom lashes. Adding black pigment to your lashes will help "break" the eyeshadow's color and prevent it from looking like you've got a flare-up.
Apply black eyeliner.
Whether it's winged out or just a single line on your lash line, adding a layer of black will again help the eyeshadow look clean and polished—and not like you're sick.
Apply beige eyeliner on your lower waterline.
If you find that doing the two things above still makes you look ill, don't worry! Just put some beige—not white—eyeliner on your lower waterline to brighten up your eyes and make them look more awake.
Go subtle and just wing it out.
This technique is perfect for beginners! Instead of applying cherry eyeshadow all over your lid, just create a thin wing a la Yassi. For extra drama, you can apply a shimmery shade on top to let it ~*sparkle*~!
