We've been burned so many times by makeup artists telling us that, yes, we can wear red, only to try it and then be asked repeatedly if we're contagious. Then, like a makeup fairy godmother, Pat McGrath came along and made everything amazing, as she has a habit of doing.
We sat in on a master class with the talented pro where she showed us exactly how she created the wine-hued smoky eye that Scarlett Johansson sports in the fall '13 Dolce & Gabbana makeup ads. Keep clicking to get the scoop on this bordeaux beauty look.
To finish the eye, McGrath swept the gold shade from the palette across the lid, then did some light contouring using the darker shades. She then added a light touch of black liquid liner along the lashline for definition. To balance out the red up top, she stuck to soft pink shades on the cheeks and lips. And, that, dear friends, is how you rock a burgundy red eye.
Would you rock the red-eye look?
