How to wear red makeup

A little colour doesn’t just have to mean a classic red lip anymore! Red makeup is the hottest new beauty trend, straight off the catwalk from Alberta Ferretti’s autumn 2017 show. But red makeup has a reputation of being hard to wear, so we’re breaking down that barrier and showing you how you can rock red makeup every day!

Red makeup for your cheeks

If you want a dewy pop of colour to cheat sun-kissed skin all year, try a coral-red toned cream blush such as Charlotte’s Beach Stick blush in Es Vedra. This super easy to use cream blush stick can be layered with buildable colour, so you can go as intense as you want! To avoid the clown-cheek look, sweep up just under your cheekbones and blend with your fingers to get that naturally flushed glow. Pair this with bronze eyes and nude lips for a beach goddess finish.

Red eyeshadow for every occasion

Red eyeshadow has the age-old myth of being difficult to wear because of the proximity to your eyes and the worry of looking more tired. But no fear, by choosing the right shade of red, you can make it your everyday go-to eyeshadow look. The russet red shades in Charlotte’s Luxury Palette eyeshadow quad in Vintage Vamp are perfect for building up from desk-to-disco. To avoid tired-looking eyes, use the Prime shade on the inner corners to highlight and open up your eyes.

The classic red lip

Sometimes you can’t beat a classic red lipstick, especially if you’re running late and want to make an effort without ACTUALLY making an effort… For a modern twist, try a matte lipstick to get a just-bitten pout like Charlotte’s Matte Revolution lipstick in Red Carpet Red. This looks great paired with minimal eye and face makeup, so the focus is all on the lips. If you want to go glam for the evening, pair it with a high lustre lip gloss, and check out our guide on applying red lipstick for top tips for a flawless lip every time!
