Matching Your Make-up With Red Dresses
If you’re anything like me you love red dresses! Red’s a vibrant, seductive, and above all, fun color to wear! Thanks to its wide range of shades it’s also a versatile color that suits events from parties, right through to formal gatherings such as black tie events.Finding ‘the’ dress is always the big decision, but you’re next question will be…”What make-up should I be wearing?” And it’s a good question, as red dresses tend to dominate your look thanks to their strong and bold color, so you need to be careful to choose make-up to match. Let’s look at some make-up options to go with red here:
Matching Your Make-up To Red DressesWe’re going to focus on your skin tone, its color, and the shade of red you’re going to wear. Follow these tips and you’ll look great!
FoundationYou should wear your regular foundation that you know already matches your skin, applying it evenly and not going too heavy (heavy foundation is generally a no-no). Too much foundation can clash with red, and because red’s already quite a bold color it’s best to let it stay in the driving seat when it comes to your look.
LipsThe perfect option would be to find a lipstick color that is a perfect match for your red dress. An alternative, if you can’t find a match, would be to choose a different, darker hue of red. You can’t go wrong with matching red with red.
Your third option is to ditch red lipstick and choose a nude color that complements your skin tone instead of the dress. Dark complexion: Go with a brown that’s a close match to your skin tone, and add some pep with a gloss that has a hint of orange or red.
