Full Answer

  1. Clean and moisturize the face

    Start with a clean, bare face. Spray lightly with mineralized or pH-balanced water to lock in moisture.

  2. Apply eye cream

    Use a gentle cream under the eye and on the eyelid to help relieve puffiness.

  3. Prime the eyelid

    Dab a concealer or eye shadow primer on the eyelid. This prevents smudging and keeps the red eye shadow in place.

  4. Start with a base shadow

    Using a flat, tapered brush, apply a light eye shadow color around the inner corner of the eyes. This highlights the eyes and acts as a base.

  5. Apply your chosen shade of red

    Choose an eye shadow color on the red spectrum. It could be a deep blood red or a red with hints of pink. Use a tapered brush to apply the shadow as close to the lash line as possible. Feather the shadow as it nears the corner of the eye. Next, blend the shadow with a fluffy brush.

  6. Curl the lashes

    To widen the eyes, curl the eyelashes and apply a dab of Vaseline to them.
