Look 1: Classic red lips, red nail polish and gold eyes

 

“Apply Mississippi Mermaid all over the entire lid. With a small fluffy brush, use the gold part of Isolde on the outer part of the eye and into the crease, creating an elongated winged shape. Isolde is also applied on the bottom outer half of the eye. Wet the brush with water and mix it with Mississippi Mermaid for an even metallic-like shimmer on the center of the lid and in the inner corner. Brush Exhibit A blush high on the cheeks. Follow with two coats of Short Circuit (an orange red that would also look great in the summer) on the lips. If you want extra shine, apply clear gloss all over. Tomorrow's Red on nails. ”

 

Look 2: Fuchsia lips, nail polish and cheeks

 

“Line the inner rim of the eyes with a dark violet eye pencil, black is also good. Dip a big fluffy brush into Coeur Battant blush and lightly dust it all over the eyes, sweeping the color up and out, towards the temples. Use a soft blush brush and apply the same blush color high on the cheeks and into the temples. Apply Full Frontal onto the lips. No Limits on nails. ”

 

Look 3: Blue and purple eyes, modern red lips

 

“Line the top and bottom lash lines with Aigle Noir eyeshadow pencil. Using a flat brush, press Wishful Thinking over the black eye shadow and extend the line outwards, into a wing shape. With a medium sized eye shadow brush, sweep Rage into the inner half of the eyes. Blend with so there won't be any harsh edges. Future Red on the lips. No blush, just add a little contour in the cheeks with Portobello eyeshadow duo. Nude polish on nails.”
