Daring Weekend Makeup Idea: Pinkish-Brown Eyeshadow + Red Lips, As Spotted On Alicia Keys
You probably wouldn’t think to wear red lipstick with a non-neutral eye shadow, would you? I’ll admit, it can be tricky. But this photo of Alicia Keys just might convince you to give it a go.
The red lipstick she’s wearing is a classic shade that most people can pull off, but she did something risky by pairing it with a pinky eyeshadow color. That combo sounds like a Glamour Don’t, but it looks pretty on Alicia, no? Her skin tone has a lot to do with it–this miiiiight not work on you if you have fair skin.
On top of the eyeshadow she did a thick swipe of black liner and extended it out ever so slightly. On the bottom, the shadow is smudged right under her lashes and there’s a thin stroke of liner. She didn’t go crazy with mascara–I only see a touch. The overall effect is very sexy and she looks like such a hot mama with that leather jacket. Reow!
What do you think of her daring shadow and lip pairing? Think it would work for you?
