Beauty School: Sunkissed Makeup for Red Hair

I love Lilianna’s freckles and her beautiful red hair color, so I wanted to keep this look really simple and let her features shine. I gave her just a hint of glow all over for a sunkissed look using Jones Road.


I started by brightening the under eye area and spot correcting using The Face Pencils. I used Shade 2 under her eyes and Shade 4 to cover up any redness on her face. Always use a lighter shade under your eyes.

I followed with some Miracle Balm in Bronze on cheeks. It gives a wash of sheer color that doesn’t overpower — which is why it works across so many skin tones.



Next, I focused on her eyes. I used The Best Eyeshadow in Dark Brown (available in the Start-Up Kit) to fill her in brows and give them some added definition. On her lids, I started with Just A Sec in Topaz and added a layer of Sparkle Wash in Midas on top. These two products play so well together and make sparkle look really modern.

I added two coats of The Mascara to her top lashes. I always use a black mascara, even on lighter lashes. This gave her length, definition, and volume.


I kept her lips really simple, just added some Miracle Balm in Au Natural for a subtle sheen.
