Fire & ice: how to rock fall’s hottest trend


One of the hottest trends for fall is red eyeshadow.  Although it isn’t a conventional colour to wear, if done right, it’s super pretty.

Now I know what most of you are probably thinking, “won’t it make my eyes look red?”  That was my first thought about it, but after actually trying it out, it’s super pretty and edgy.

Here’s how I pull it off.


1. Put on your face makeup and then we are going straight to the eyes.  With a white cream shadow, like Covergirl’s Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame, apply this all over your lids.

2. With a cream red shadow, like Covergirl’s Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Red-Hot Flame, apply this in your crease and in the outer corners of your lids, and blend it out.

3. To make this look a little more wearable, apply a grey-coloured shadow to your crease over the red.  I used Covergirl’s Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Ice Flame.

4. With a black powder eyeshadow, apply this over the grey.  I used Covergirl’s Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Molten Black, which is a black with silver shimmer in it.

5. With that same grey pencil, apply this along your lower lash line.  Then, with the red pencil, apply this also on your lower lash line, but towards the inner corner of your eyes.

6. Line your upper lash line with a liquid eyeliner, winging it out (I used Lancome’s Art Liner in Noir) and then curl your lashes and apply a few coats of mascara.  I used Covergirl’s Flamed Out Water-Resistant Mascara in Black.

Finish up your face with bronzer and blush and then apply a nude-pink lipstick.  I used Marc Jacobs LOVEMARC Lip Gel in Strange Magic (obsessed with this).

And there you have it!  A pretty cool look that will have you looking smoking hot.
