Hi, guys! My name is Laura Heyns, I'm with Urban Betty Salon, and I'm a hairstylist and makeup artist here in Austin, Texas and this video I'm going to show you what makeup you should be wearing you're going red. So when you're going red there's a couple different options you can do, you can wear complementary colors like other really worm tones they're going to look amazing with any kind of red, so golds and browns and just like any kind of worm tones like that are going to look amazing or you can actually do the exact opposite and do an opposing color, which greens and any of those kind of colors will also look awesome too, it kind of is what what ever you're comfortable with. This pallet that I'm going to use on her, it's kind of neutral gold worm eye shadows, same with the blush and the lip gloss, they kind of all just have that worm undertone to them. So the first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to get started on Madalyn's eye shadow, these are really good investments to make kind of these eye shadow palettes that they put together for you, they usually all have some worm undertones, so they're usually a pretty good deal, so you can get four different colors for usually the price of two, which is awesome. So for her what I'm going to do first is I'm going to highlight her eyebrow bone and when I do that I like to use a stiff kind of short flat brush and I'm going to go in with this top color over here and I'll tap off any excess color and I'm going to lay it down where I want the most color first. So I'm going to go in and just highlight this brow bone and just blend it out, so I place the color and then blend it out. And with the lighter colors too I always like to pop a little extra in the tear ducts just to kind of brighten up the eye so right around that area. I'm just kind of going little circles so there's no hard lines and sweep it out and down. So I always like to do the brow bone and then I will do the lid color. So now I'm going to go over to the next color which is like a light shimmery gold champagne-y kind of color, and I'm going to use the same brush that I used to highlight her brow bone and I'm going to go through and place most of the product in the center of her eye and I'm going to do the same thing, kind of tap it and sweep it out. And when I do this I'm following the round of her eye which is kind of a good natural road map that's already built in. So now I'm going to use this next kind of medium copper color as her crease color, now I'm going to go through I'm going to place it at the corner of the eye, that's where I want the most product and kind of just go in and blend it out and on this color I kind of like to blend it down in to the lash line and barely kind of bring it up on to the brow bone. And it's always better to just be light handed at first and you can always go back in and add a little more and then if you want something more dramatic there's always that option because usually these colors come in a palette of four. So just to kind of show you guys I'm going to take this darker color and with this I'm just going to place it at the corner of her eye and barely blend that just under that kind of light coppery color we just did and this will just kind of add a little bit more drama. So one her cheek what I'm going to do is I'm going to as this really pretty kind of peach tone and to be honest, if you're going red you could use really any of these colors would be very suitable, but on Madelyn today I'm just going to do this really light kind of peachy one because this is kind of prettier color for her skin tone. And see all those kind of really pretty fall colors start to come together. So now I'm just going to pop a coral lip gloss on her right now and then it will kind of be the finishing touch and you can kind of see all these tones blended together and you can kind of imagine what they would look like with really pretty red hair. So my name is Laura Heyns, I'm with Urban Betty Salon here in Austin, Texas. I do hair and makeup and I just showed you how to use pretty warm kind of fall colors when you're going red.
