Makeup Dare: 30 Days, 30 Looks

We challenged a makeup artist to try a different look on herself every day for a month. See what she came up with

Day 30: Seeing red

Finally, Day 30! I can’t believe I made it this far. For my final look, I wanted to try something I was scared to do. I had always thought red eye shadow would look bad, so I never bothered with it. For this look, I used Rihanna’s bold red eye for inspiration. But to make it more uh, “normal,” I used gray eye shadow on the top lid, then I smudged Smashbox Eye Shadow, $16, in a reddish (almost fuchsia) shade underneath. I traced the upper lash line with black waterproof eyeliner, then finished the look with Prescriptives Colorscope Lipcolor in Berry Oodles, $17.50. The outcome: a tad sickly but not as scary as I imagined. In fact, I kind of like it.

Thanks for sticking with me through the entire 30 days! I hope you were as inspired as I was to try your own makeup challenge.
