Flashing Fuchsia

Magnetic, versatile, sophisticated… Fuchsia puts red back in the shade! How to steal the spotlight from day to night? Keep scrolling…


For a fresh day-time look, a flawless complexion in key. Choose a lightweight foundation to even up the complexion and apply a baby pink blush to the apples of the cheeks. No heavy eye makeup needed either. A dark brown eyeshadow softly smoked onto the upper and lower lashline will do the trick. Then, simply curl the lashes with an eyelash curler and brush the eyebrows to open the eyes. Apply the fuchsia lipstick on the lips and blot the excess on a tissue to set the stain. Finish by gently adding more product to the lips to give some shine.


For a more dramatic night out makeup, darken the eyes. Start with the day-time look – above – as a base. Countour the cheekbones to create dimension. Trace a line on both the upper and lower lashline with a black eyeliner. Smudge the line with a brush for that smoky effect. Apply a black mascara on the upper lashes as well as the bottom lashes. Last but not least, use the same blotting technique with the lipstick and finish by applying a generous coat for the color to pop.



Have fun!
