Attention redheads! We've found the eyeshadow color you should be wearing next spring.
Backstage at Lela Rose and Costello Tagliapietra's Spring 2014 shows, makeup artists dressed up the models' lids with an unusual shade: lime green. The spring color worked surprisingly well on all the different models' skin tones, however, it stood out particularly on the redheads.
With such a vibrant eyeshadow color on the lids, it is key to keep the rest of the face pared down. Romy Soleimani for Beauty.com achieved this at Lela Rose by using a combination of Stila Color Pigments in Light Show and Cha Cha Eyeshadow on the eyes. Then she balanced it with Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey (a creamy pink).
MAC Cosmetics lead makeup artist Maki perfected a "natural and breathable" look on the Costello Tagliapietra girls by working MAC Pro Sculpting Creams underneath the cheekbones and opting for Lofty Brown Zoom Lash Mascara instead of traditional black. She finished by blending MAC Pro Lime Eye Shadow over the upper and lower eyelids to get a soft wash color.
These makeup techniques not only brought out the golden undertones in the redhead models' complexions (which gave them a subtle glow), but it also accentuated the fiery hues in their hair color.
