Hello and good morning, Wednesday. We're officially in holiday full tilt and with many back to back parties and happenings, it's hard to keep up. When it comes to party dressing for 2017, it's all about velvet this season as well as star or galaxy printed dresses and mules. But since you probably already knew all that, how about when it comes to makeup? I'm seeing red. Rust. Copper. Let me explain.
I'm a redhead again and have been for some time (more of the copper variety). I find myself drawn to colors that compliment red hair- from my bronze/coppery nail color to makeup. That's why I was drawn to the latest Nakeds palette, called "Naked Heat". It's full of colors that feel new to me- warm browns, burnt siennas, coppery hues that give a new read on the smoky eye. Match that with some deep red pencils to line the top lid and you're all kinds of set. I know, it's definitely a departure and there is the risk of looking completely nuts or look a guinea pig, but trust me- it works. Love it on Hazel eyes but would work well on all eye colors and skin tones. You can go heavy and smoky or light and fresh. Both looks are great.
I took two shades this am to play with- a lighter base shade and then used the copper for all around the crease and boom. It's pretty and fresh and new. I like it loaded up with black mascara for some volume and definition. You can keep the rest of your face fairly neutral and clean with a bit of gloss or you could even do a sheer red lip or something darker. Love this look and perfect for the holidays for a bit of a change.
Get it here and enjoy. Oh and grab these two liners- this one called Torch and this one called Alkaline. So perfect with the whole look. (Alkaline a bit deeper but both would work well to line the top of the eye).
Just a little tip from me to you. Enjoy your holiday season and play with makeup for a bit of a change. Cause that's what's up this coppery Wednesday in the 212. Yours, in heating things up. XO
