Monochromatic Makeup: How to Wear Red on Red for Christmas

There’s red lipstick and then there’s red on red festive Christmas makeup!! I’ve always embraced the monochromatic makeup trend (see more looks here, here, here & here), but the idea of wearing red eyeshadow is definitely a little intimidating! When I saw the cherry red lipstick Clarins sent over to pair with my favorite shimmer honey lip oil, I knew I had to step up my Holiday makeup game and I knew I had to give red eyeshadow a try!

Since this lip look is super shiny and glossy and overall perfect I needed an eye that could stand up to it and satin finish eye shadow with lots of lashes did the trick! I’m all about keeping the rest of your makeup simple when you do an intense lip, but this shiny pout just called for a little something more and this red monochromatic makeup was just that.

If you haven’t given Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil I try I highly recommend it! It’s super hydrating and moisturizing and perfect if you hate lip gloss like I do because its sticky, but love glossy lips! Read my full review of it here!

Would you give red on red monochromatic makeup a try this Christmas?
