Hello, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist. And today, I'm going to show you what eye shadow works well with a red and black outfit. So, we have our red and black, red scarf, black shirt. And there's a lot of different colors that would work with this ensemble. I'll recommend neutrals for the most parts, since we do have a pretty bright color going on in the scarf, and it is relatively close to the face. So, that's going to show when we look at her. So, I'm going to go in and just give a little bit of a smoky eye ,it's a great holiday look and it's good for day and night. So, we're just going to go in with a brown, our khaki undertone brown. And dab it all over the ball of the eye, and up to the crease area. We're going to leave our brow bones bare, you don't want to go all the way up to the top. The key is just to make sure that everything's pretty seamless and blending, and we don't have a ton of harsh edges going on, you want to eliminate those. So, after we have a bit of our brown going on, it's already looking nice, we're going to go in with our black. Black goes a long way with very little, so just use sparingly. And we're just going to keep it on the outer edge of the eye. So, right where the crease is, you can go up a little higher, if you'd like and just bring it down. So, we're making tiny V's and then, blending. This can be a day or night look. You can bump up the intensity, if you want to take it out at night, so it shows up a little better. We're going to do the same on the other side. On the crease and just really make sure that the creases are blended, the black is what's most important when it comes to blending. Because an un-blended black can look quite harsh. But a blended one can look seamless and beautiful. And that's what we're trying to do, is just create some dimension without it being apparent. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you what eye shadow works well with red and black clothing.
