Look | “Reverse” Red & Gold Holiday Makeup

Look | “Reverse” Red & Gold Holiday Makeup

One of the most popular makeup looks I see every holiday season is the combination of gold eyes with red lips. I totally understand why, since they’re both very “festive” colours and they work really well together. Since I can be a bit of a makeup rebel, however, I decided to put a twist on this look and go for red eyes and gold lips instead. I get that this might be too much for some (ok, a lot) of people, so don’t worry — I’ve got a more wearable red and gold look coming up soon! You can also break this up and wear the red eyes with a neutral lip or the gold lips with a simple winged eye if you’re feeling bold-but-not-quite-this-bold.
