Here’s How You Can *Actually* Wear J.Lo’s Red Eyeshadow IRL
The Met Gala is not a night for demure or subtle anything (c’mon, you saw Bey and Riri and those dresses!!) and that’s true for makeup and hair on the red carpet too. One of the trends that caught my eye was the red shadow that stars like Jennifer Lopez and Claire Danes were rocking. Super unique and actually really beautiful, but I know what you’re thinking — how the heck can I do that IRL? I’ll show you! Here’s how you can actually wear red eyeshadow (inspired specifically by our girl Jenny from the Block!) with a simple hack using makeup you already have and must-know tips.
Prep: How to Get A Glowing Bronze Face
Prep your base makeup using our go-to tutorial, just adding a little more bronzer this time around. Highlight your cheekbones and bridge of your nose with a golden shimmer and add a neutral mauve gloss to your lips.
Use a golden shimmering shadow like Urban Decay Naked Palette in Half Baked ($54) to highlight your brow bones, inside corners of your eyes and across your lower lashline.
Step 1: Highlight Eyes
Step 2: Blush Hack for Red Eyeshadow
Apply another layer of the golden eyeshadow to your brow bone to really make this look pop.
Step 3: Add Another Pop Of Gold
We went with a black winged tip eyeliner and a couple coats of mascara on both the top and bottom lashes to bring this look to life.
Step 4: Add Eyeliner + Mascara
