Pop of Bronze | Redhead Friendly Eyeshadow Tutorial

 

This week it’s been so lovely in California.  I found myself driving home from a photo shoot in the late afternoon sunshine and just reflecting on all the things we don’t expect in our lives that end up being so wonderful.

Never ever growing up in (the also beautiful but sometimes cold) upstate NY did I picture myself living in California.  And when I moved out here to start a career in comedy, never did I picture myself having a beauty blog or switching careers to become a makeup artist.

Another thing I never saw coming was becoming a redhead.  I became one completely by accident, with a box of brown hair dye pulling just a little too warm.  And I felt like boom, this is the shade I was born to be, I just never knew I needed it.  And now some of my favorite tutorials to film are these redhead friendly makeup looks.

I call them “Redhead Friendly” because they really suit redheads nicely, but also work beautifully with other skin tones and shades of hair.  I hate having anyone feeling excluded, but I do want redheads to know when tutorials have shades that will be great on them!

This tutorial also features the Viseart palette in Neutral Matte 01, which is included in the Sephora V.I.B. sale next week.  It’s pricey, but when you break it down per shade (each pan is generously sized), it becomes $6.67 per shade, which is drugstore prices!  And the slightest touch goes far.  I really love this palette, I think it’s a long-term good value and an even better deal with the sale discount.

So I wanted to share in case anyone has a Sephora gift card burning a hole in their wallet!  I’ve been hanging on to a $90 gift card for almost 6 months waiting for this sale.  $90!  Even I can’t believe my restraint in not spending it all already.

Okey dokey, on to the tutorial!

    Hi Molly! Fabulous look as usual. Reminds me of Scully in X-Files (though her looks were more terracotta). Watched some of the older episodes recently and as a redhead and they were fascinating in part because of the color palette used on her.

    On another note, if I may submit a humble request if it intrigues you at all… Would love to know your thoughts on the John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss. No affiliation lol, am just curious what you think.

    Anyway, keep up the excellent work! 😀

    Molly,

    Beautiful work and thanks for sharing your expertise, via your blog. You mention using the Urban Decay Naked palette. Of the UD Naked palettes, which is most flattering for blue-eyed strawberry blondes?

    Thanks,
    Susan
