When I think about a go-to color for a bold, party look, I always think red. I’m curious to know what your go-to color is when you think about it! There aren’t nearly as many shimmery/metallic reds as there should be, in my opinion, that are permanently available. I’d love to hear about more that I’m missing out on!
Here’s a more traditional take on shades of the New Year — yellowy golds. I went for a list of some of my favorite more shimmering/sparkling shades for bonus points 🙂 What are your favorites?
NARS Spring 2016 Color Collection — Nouvelle Vogue
The new wave of chic. Seasonal shades suit up for resort mode with high-sun and high-style.
For Spring 2016, NARS debuts a fresh and modern mix of seasonal shades and innovative textures for eyes, cheeks and lips. Orchid blush radiates from a natural, matte complexion and lips captivate in shimmering apricot, rose and mulled wine. Eyes mesmerize in icy mint, matte beige and bronzed rose tones paired with a bold, winged liner. The must-have of the season: Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in a sumptuous, versatile spectrum that can be applied dry for a sophisticated sheer effect, or wet for a dramatic, high-shine finish.
We may call it rouge, but there are far less red-hued blushes on the marketplace, though luckily, we have some and many of the permanent ones are fantastic. Here are three warmer and three cooler takes on red blush. When working with deeper or more richly pigmented shades, my best tip is to use a fan brush, which will allow you to build up the color and intensity slowly and easily. Also, it’s nice to have a buffing brush on hand, or if you use liquid foundation, use the residual product left on the brush to tamp down over-applied blush.
