Don’t: Use red.
Red or reddish-pink eye makeup might be great on stage but as a friend, we’d advise against it at say, your niece’s birthday party. If you’re curious, pick a palette of warm browns with reddish undertones and burgundys instead. Think dark angel (like Rachel Weisz’s colorful smoky eye) vs. fiery demon (like Rihanna’s expertly drawn but kinda scary glare). Capisce?
