Pair a classic red lip colour with a pinkish brown eyeshadow look to give off a strong yet sweet vibe at the same time.

Add some glittery pink eyeshadow your upper and lower eyelids to make the look pop. When applying the red lipstick, start from the inner portions of your lips and slowly blend it out using your finger for a pouty lip.

If too much red is not your style, try this makeup look. Apply a small amount of red eyeshadow on your outer eyelid for a subtle effect and use brown eyeshadow on the rest of your lids.

For your lips, use a red tint for kissable lips that are not too dark. Apply blusher on the apples of your cheeks for a cuter look too!

The focus of this makeup look is the unique red eyeliner! For the daring ladies who want to stand out from the crowd, try out this red eyeliner makeup look.

If you don't have a red eyeliner, use your regular brown or black eyeliner then layer red eyeshadow on it to build the intensity of the colour.

Keep your lip colour light to avoid taking the attention away from your eyes.
