Makeup for a Red Dress

It is the holiday season, and I’m sure many of you will be wearing red for your holiday parties!  The number one email I get from all of you is “I’m wearing a red dress, what makeup do I wear?! HELP!!!”   So, here is a video showing what I do with my red outfits as well as a tutorial of a glamorous neutral look that is perfect for the Holidays!

Red Dress 01


  • Wear neutral shades, brown, silver, gold and black or anything that falls into the neutral category.
  • Stay away from bright shades.
  • Make either the eyes or the lips the focal point.
  • If you go with a red lip keep the eyes almost bare with a winged or thick liner.


  • Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in “Tan” – (Makeup Geek Store)
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation – (Amazon), (eBay)
  • Maybelline Fit Face Powder – (Amazon), (eBay)
  • Stila Convertible Cheek Color – “Lillium” – (Amazon), (eBay)



  • MAC Lipstick – Flair for Finery – (Amazon), (eBay)
  • NARS Lipgloss – Striptease – (Amazon), (eBay)

There it is, the perfect makeup for all the red you will be wearing this holiday season! I hope this helps all of our and that your holiday is happy and blessed. :-)

As always, I hope each and everyone of you are staying happy and healthy!!!
