Don’t be afraid of burgundy eyeshadow

Don’t be afraid of burgundy eyeshadow

There is something promiscuous yet classic about the color red when it comes to makeup. We all love a good old classic red lipstick but why not considering consider adding some red tones to the rest of your face. Shades of red and even burgundy eyeshadow tones are not considered as popular choice. Truth about burgundy eyeshadow is that it is as versatile as its brown tone competitors and can really make your eyes stand out even in a very settle way. For this makeup look I used deep burgundy eyeshadow and mascara in the same shade. The effect is settle hints of color that complimented my brown eyes. This particular shade also looks particularly great paired with blue and green eyes. It helps eyes look bigger and brighter. Sometimes it pays off to get out of the comfort zone.
