Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist. And I'm going to show you some eye shadow makeup tips for redheads. So, there's a couple of different tips that are really fun to do. The things that you'll need are some eye shadows varying from light to dark and a little bit of shimmer, and a little bit that aren't. Some eye shadow brushes to apply it with. I like to use a flat one for the lid and a fluffy one for the crease. And I'm also going to use kind of an angled one for eyeliner with the shadow. And an eye shadow primer would be great. This is actually a primer and concealer. There's a lot of different brands out there that you can get. So, I'll use this for both a concealer and a primer for the eye. So, the first step is going to be to apply the primer all over the lid. Basically what the primer does is it makes it so that the shadow sticks really well. It becomes more vibrant and it will stay and not crease. So, I'm just going to tap it on the lid and then smooth it with my ring finger. So, I'm just going to kind of dot it on both sides there. And then smooth it out. You just need a thin layer kind of all over. And I like to use the ring finger cause it won't put as much pressure as lets say your pointer finger on the delicate skin around the eye. Now we are going to go into the eye shadow. And I'm just going to pick kind of a medium brown to put on the lid and I'm going to use this flat brush here. Just going to put it all over the lid from the lash line about to the crease. When applying this a good tip is to pat the shadow on instead of swiping it on because when you pat it on you get more concentrated color and less shadow kind of falling all over face. So you just kind of tap it on. And that will be a little bit better of an application for you. So now I'm going to use the same brush but I'm going to dip it into this light kind of shimmery color here. And we are going to create a light kind of brightness in the corner of the eyes. That's another tip that a lot of celebrities do to kind of brighten up the whole eye area. So we are going to just tap it right in that corner there. And you can use any color that's kind of light and shimmery. It doesn't have to be glittery just a little bit of shimmer is fine. And now I'm going to take that same flat brush and I'm going to dip it in this light vanilla color. And we are going to use this as an eyebrow highlight right on the eyebrow bone to highlight that bone and make your face kind of brighter. So we are just going to apply this right underneath there on both sides. A lot of people like to use a very shimmery color as a highlight but if you find that that is too much you can go with a matte or a satin. This is a satin which is a matte shadow with just a little bit of flex in it that reflect light. Now, I'm going to take that fluffy brush and I'm going to get a little bit of a darker color and I'm just going to put it into the crease just to carve out a little bit more of a shadow and give your eye some more dimension. So, I'm going to start on the outer corners work my way in. And depending on your eye shape you can really concentrate like on the outer if you need a little bit more shadow there. Or on the inner if your eyes are wide set. You just do little blending motions. And now I'm going to do a little tip that I like to do for someone who wants to define their eyes but maybe doesn't want any harsh lines or they don't wear eyeliner, or they're scared or whatever. I take this angled brush and I just dip it in a dark shadow and I use that as eyeliner and that creates a nice soft definition. So I'm just going to press this along the lashes. And you can also do this on the bottom as well depending on if you like to wear bottom liner. You can put a little bit down here. You can even blend it with your finger. And after I put that down I do like to blend it out with a little bit of a lighter color. So there you go that's a couple eye shadow tips that you can have for redheads or any color hair. But probably the most practical and one that I use all the time is going to be that primer for the eye. Because you put that on first and your shadow will stay. It will last all day, it won't crease. It will pop the color. So that's probably my most, you know, important tip. But definitely, I love the inner corner being really light. That brightens up the whole look and the eyeliner with eye shadow for a soft definition. Try that out if you haven't yet. Thank you so much for watching. I'm Christine, bye.
