December dares are back!! This week, we have Julia Carmona, Stylisted’s Co-founder & COO, trying out red eyeshadow for the first time! {Psst: new to this series? Check out last week when Isabella wore black lipstick!} On to Julia’s experience!

Share your dare: Red eye shadow & liner

What’s so scary about that: You’re walking a fine line between trendy/edgy and exhausted/pink eye.

The verdict: I loved it! I’ll start with a disclaimer…this was something I needed help achieving. I was attending a charity event after work and I didn’t quite trust myself with a palette of red shadow and a prayer. So, Stylisted’s own, Bev Zychowski, came by the office to help tackle the dare. She started by applying copper and burgundy shadow on my lid and crease. This felt wearable and is probably something I could (and would) do on my own, but because I’m not one to dance around a dare, we decided to go full throttle and add a cherry red shadow on top of the metallic base. Bev took the color along my lower lashline, as well (inducing a tiny inner panic).

The last step was to add black gel liner to my upper and lower lashline. In my opinion, this pulled it all together and gave the look an edgier rocker vibe. The black liner also made it very evident that I was wearing makeup and did not, in fact, have an eye infection—which was very important to me. I walked into that charity event with my red shadow, black outfit, and messy ponytail feeling like my coolest self. The other bonus about experimenting with eye shadow and liner is that you don’t feel or notice it, so you’re not thinking about it, which keeps you comfortable and confident throughout the evening. I would definitely try it again (with Bev’s help, of course)!
