Green Envy

Green is a fantastic color for those with Reddish-Brown eyes and also Hazel eyes. Since green is a complementary color to red on the color wheel, it really brings out the warmth in the eye color. 

When wearing a bright color on your eyes, make sure that you avoid any shimmer on your brow bone, use a matte highlight instead. 
NEVER bring the color all the way to your brows, this is too dramatic and it is best reserved for stage makeup.
Make sure you blend out the eyeliner to create a smokey effect and so there are no harsh lines.
Keep the rest of your face subtle so that all the attention will be on your eyes. 
The best lipstick colors that complement  green eyeshadow are: pinks, nudes, and peachy tones.
Most importantly, Have fun! Makeup is supposed to be an art form, if you make a mistake, just remove it and start over! 
I hope these tips will help you create your own version of this look. :)

Glam Look- 1950s Classic Look

This is one of my go to looks for special occasions. I love 1950's style makeup. The winged eye paired with red Lips is something that never goes out of style. 
Yes, you too can wear red lipstick! Everyone can, you just need to find the right shade for you. 
I custom made this shade using my Makeup Forever Flash Color Case. I mixed several shades together with the bright red in order to create a color that would compliment my skin tone.

For those of you trying this look at home, you can just purchase a few different inexpensive red lipsticks and mix them together until you find a shade that makes your skin stand out. It's all about trial and error.
