High heels, red dress—and the perfect makeup look to go with it. If you’ve been scrolling through Pinterest in search of the best makeup for your red dress, we get it. It can be overwhelming to choose the right makeup to complement such a bold outfit choice. But with the help of the inspo below, you won’t have to stress over finding your red dress makeup match. Read on for 10 makeup looks to rock with a red dress! 

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #1: BRIGHT RED LIPS

Let’s be real—it doesn’t get much better than a bright red lip paired with an equally eye-catching red dress. Talk about a match made in heaven! Consider coloring your pout with one of the following, based on your preferred lip finish. 

If you love a matte finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Colored Ink, High Pigment in I Don’t.

If you love a natural finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in British Red.

If you love a glossy finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Fiery.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #2: BRONZE EYES

We’ll forever be a fan of bronze eyes, and they just so happen to look beautiful with a red dress. Here’s how to get the look.

Step #1: Prime your eyes. You know the drill. Apply an eye primer to ensure your makeup lasts.

Step #2: Coat your lids. Brush a shimmery bronze shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe, all over your lids. Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to blend the color out toward your crease for a seamless, smooth appearance. 

Step #3: Line your lower lash line. Drag that same bronze eye shadow along your lower lash line for a smoky effect.

Step #4: Add some highlight. Pop the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Metallics Eye Shadow in Brass Knuckles onto the center of your lid and inner corner to add depth to your eye makeup.

Step #5: Apply mascara. Last but not least? A few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #3: WINGED EYELINER

As far as statement makeup looks go, sharp winged eyeliner will always be a staple on our list. Pair it with a red dress, and you’re guaranteed to have all eyes on you. If you’re new to winged eyeliner or simply have trouble creating perfect, even wings, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner, which comes with a removable cat eye stencil.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #4: BARELY-THERE LIPS

Want to let your dress do all the talking? Paint your lips in a barely-there hue. This is also a great option if you prefer to do a dramatic eye look. Take your pick from the following options, based on your favorite lip finish.

If you love a matte finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Colored Ink, High Pigment in I Empower.

If you love a natural finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Golden Splendor.

If you love a glossy finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Petal.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #5: ROSE GOLD HIGHLIGHT

There’s no denying gleaming, glowing skin is a sought-after trait. When it comes to pairing makeup with a red dress, consider adding radiance to your complexion with a rose gold highlighter. Sweep the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Highlighter in Rose Quartz generously over your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and the tip of your nose.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #6: RED EYES

Seeing red? If you’re prepared to go all-in with an all-over red look, we recommend adding red eyes into the mix. Here’s how.

Step #1: Apply an eye primer. Say no more!

Step #2: Color your lids. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Radiant Ruby onto your lid, then use your finger to carefully smudge and blend the color into your crease. Then, take a small, flat top eye shadow brush and drag the same hue along your lower lash line, using your pinky finger to smudge the color for a smoky effect.

Step #3: Coat your lashes. Bring out the mascara! Apply a few layers of the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #7: CRANBERRY POUT

We mentioned bright red lips, but a cranberry lip color deserves its own spotlight. This deep red hue looks especially gorgeous when paired with a bright red dress. It’s all about contrast! Find your lipstick match below.

If you love a matte finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Matador.

If you love a natural finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Blushing Berry.

If you love a glossy finish…swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Glistening Berry.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #8: GOLD SPARKLY LIDS

There’s just something about red and gold that conveys an aura of royalty. To feel like a queen in your red dress, color your lids in a sparkly gold hue. Use the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Crown Gold or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Gilded Gold to do just that.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #9: BRUSHED UP BROWS

Bushy, brushed up eyebrows have been quite the makeup trend as of late, and we love them when paired with a pretty red dress! If you want your brows to be the center of your makeup look, head over to our article, How to Get Brushed Up Eyebrows, for a step-by-step tutorial.

RED DRESS MAKEUP LOOK #10: BURGUNDY SMOKY EYE

Last but not least, try incorporating a burgundy hue into your smoky eye for a sultry eye makeup look that’ll be the perfect addition to your red dress.

Step #1: Prime your lids. You know what to do.

Step #2: Make it smoky. It’s time to grab your eye shadow! First, apply the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Matte It Up onto your lids. Then, make things smoky by popping the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Acro-Matte into your crease, making sure to blend thoroughly. Drag this same shadow along your lower lash line. Deepen your smoky eye by adding the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Matte-ison Avenue to the outer “V” of your eyes.

Step #3: Line your eyes. What’s a smoky eye without a bit of eyeliner? Use to L’Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liquid Dip Eyeliner, Waterproof to line your upper lash line.

Step #4: Apply mascara. Add a coat or two of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara.
