Start your makeup by applying concealer to cover all the spots followed by primer and foundation.

Eye Makeup

When it comes to makeup for red dress, you can either focus on the eyes or lips. For a red party dress, try smokey eyes or a dazzling glittery eyeshadow. You can also try two-tone eyeshadows with colors being red and black or gold. Keep the eyelashes bold with loads of mascara. Complete the eye makeup with winged eye-liner.



Red lipstick is the best bet for a red dress. For a bold look, try the glitter lipstick as it is the newest makeup trend and will make you look hot and sexy! You can even try a lighter or darker lip shade complimenting your dress.If you want to keep it minimal, then try a nude lip shade and team it with shimmery gloss.

Blush Love

Whether you’re wearing red lips or not, you can’t ignore the blush. Dust your cheeks either with pink blush or bronze color. You can even match a shade of coral with your red dress.


Final Touch-Up

Complete your look with face powder and highlighter. To add some structure to your face, try the cheek bones, sides of nose and temples.

Look flawless with these makeup ideas and have a great time!
