Red is undoubtedly the color to wear this season. The fiery hue has been spotted on everything from dresses to dainty rosettes to powerful suits, and even if you don’t want to wear a head-to-toe red look, you can still play with the trend in your makeup routine. It might sound intimidating, but it’s actually surprisingly achievable and so flattering. Take my favorite product: red blush. It gives this naturally glowing look that’s gorgeous on all skin tones. The one I use is from SheGlam, which is my go-to brand for affordable beauty products. In my opinion, its elevated packaging and high-quality formulas rival high-end makeup. If blush doesn’t do it for you, SheGlam has so many more red beauty products, which I’ve also been eyeing. Keep reading to see my picks and application tips to nail this look.
This beautiful liquid blush is one of the brand’s best-selling products. I highly suggest you try out the shade Devoted, a shimmery coral red.
I used to think that all lip plumpers would sting or burn my lips, but then I found this one. It naturally plumps lips with absolutely zero irritation. Plus, it’s high shine and offers incredible color payoff.
Wait, this is so impressive—this glossy lip tint reacts to your unique pH to create a custom shade that’s perfect for you.
This is my favorite blush. Here’s a tip: You can actually sweep some blush onto your eyelids to add natural warmth and depth to the eyes.
This is your classic candy-red lipstick. This one has a velvety matte formula that lasts all day and a subtle light-reflecting shimmer.
If you’re intimidated, start here: A sheer raspberry gloss is the easiest way to test out red makeup.
A red liquid liner is all you need for an extra-eye-catching makeup look.
Matte makeup is making a comeback. You can’t go wrong with a classic red lipstick. This one has intense pigment that packs a punch and super-luxe packaging, to boot.
The warm neutral and burgundy hues in this palette are so right for fall. They come in matte, satin, and metallic finishes to create endless eye shadow looks.
Throw this in your bag for the perfect pout anytime, anywhere. I’m eyeing the shade Cherry Fudge, which sounds so delectable.
This dual-toned copper eye shadow would beautifully complement any eye color.
It’s a fact that cherry-red lipstick with blue undertones makes your teeth look pearly white.
If you want to venture beyond a classic red, may I suggest this autumnal crimson shade?
