Trend: Red eyeshadow

Hello cutiepies!

Red eyeshadow seems be a huge trend right now so I thought I show you a look using only red eyeshadow. 

When using red eyeshadow there are some important things to think about. The first one is to decide whether your skin has a yellow or pink undertone. If you arrive at the conclusion that your skin is pink rather than yellow you should be aware that bright reds will bring out the red undertones in your skin and make you look even redder. That's probably not what you want! (But if you do, by all means, try it out :)). 
If you have yellow undertones in your skin, however, bright reds and pinkish reds will look great! 

Skin with a pinkish undertone

Avoid: Bright reds, reds with a lot of pink 
Go for: Rusty reds, brownish reds

Another thing with red eyeshadow is that it can look as if your eyes are sore unless you use some kind of eyeliner (preferably black) together with it. Here I've used the eyeliner to make a cateye (you all know I love that kind of winged eyeliner :P), but you can make a more subtle, smudged line if you prefer. 

(The color on the picture is not at all as bright as in real life but I took this picture during really, really bad light conditions)
