Red Hot Trends For 2008

Redheads, Red dresses and Red lipstick! Dare you try them?

Red is this years hottest color and absolutely beautiful when you know how to wear it. Of course, Makeup needs to compliment all that Red.....so here's 5 tips to help you.
(Model has the total look!)

I did this look for a 'Fashion Forward 2008' Photography Shoot with Stephanie Moore Photography. www.stephaniemooreonline.com/
Tip 1: The Secret lies in the rest of your face. The paler the skin, the bigger the pop. Go light on the eyes with shadows otherwise you’ll risk looking like a clown.
Black/ Brown Eyeliner smudged closely to the lash line, then 3 coats of mascara to lashes. Make sure to apply mascara lavishly to bottom lashes to open up the eyes.

Tip 2: Line lips with a reddish colored lip liner or dark natural, this assures lipstick won't bleed, then fill in lips with lip liner. (so it lasts throughout the evening or event)

Tip 3: Pick the right color. If your complexion is pink, you'll look better in plum shades, while girls with yellow tones are flattered by warmer reds that have a brown base. Our model is wearing a rust shade 'blend' (see tip 4) topped with clear gloss and lip plumper.

Tip 4: Blend more than one shade of lipstick to create the perfect color. If you bought a red lipstick that's too bright or dark experiment with other lipstick shades you have on hand to create the perfect shade of red.

Tip 5: Blush stays soft and matte...most Makeup looks for 2008 include a lightly powdered face without shimmery highlights.

Well, your all set! Now, slip into a pretty RED dress, the right shoes and accessories; trust me heads will turn .....because that's what Redhead's do!
