How to Wear Red Eye Shadow and Lipstick

How to Mix and Match Red Makeup This Winter

Still unsure of how to wear red makeup this Winter? Rita Ora made a good case for mixing and matching shades of crimson for a well-rounded beauty look. Her lipstick is an obvious choice, and wearing a bright red shade on your lips is an easy way to pull together a series of makeup looks. But Rita took it a step further and wore the shade on her eyes as well.

Opting for a lighter, creamier shade of red, Rita blended her shadow from lash line to eyebrows. The color isn't overtly red, and contains shades of orange and gold, making it a perfect pairing to her cherry-red lips. And since the shades complement one another instead of match, Rita looks unexpectedly cool instead of tacky. If you're looking to try something similar, mix and match your textures and colors. Couple a heavily pigmented lipstick, like MAC Lipstick in Russian Red ($15) with a semisheer eye shadow, like Hermit by Kat Von D ($13, originally $20, part of the True Romance palette). The result will be head turning . . . in a good way.
