Hi, my name is Nancy Paterra, I'm a makeup artist in Los Angeles. And the question is, what color eye shadow do you wear with a red lip color? Right now, on our model, we have a very soft, red lip color. So, you're able to play up the eye a little more. That way, the features are not competing with one another. Now, under more intense lip color circumstances, like one of these two. You would want to do a real clean eye, stick to one color, preferably neutral. Something like this, something like something like this. Keep that eye real clean, otherwise you're going to have features fighting for attention. So, if you go with a real intense lip color, red lip color, you want to keep the eye as clean as possible. One color, emphasize more liner, but the mouth is the primary attraction. So, in this case, because our model has a softer red, we were able to play up the eyes a little more, and they're not competing. So, to summarize, darker red, richer reds, just keep the eyes one shadow color, neutral, neutral, neutral. If you're doing a softer lip color like this, with a suggestion of red. You can play up the eyes more and really play with eye shadow. So, there's two choices for you when you're wearing red lipstick. Thank you.
