in the red

Posted on   |   Comments (0)
with fall officially in full swing, we are on a quest for change. we've cleaned our closets (only to make room for our updated autumnal wardrobes) and broke out the seasonally appropriate home decorations, but this had left us longing for more..until we flipped through the pages of this month's glamour magazine and stumbled across an editorial with singer florence welch, of florence + the machine. not only do we love her music ("kiss with a fist" and "dog days are over" have been on heavy rotation on our iPod for quite some time now), but we are currently coveting her gorgeous, vibrant red dye job:

in addition to florence, many startlets have been rocking the red hue, including christina hendricks, kate mara, emma stone, and bryce dallas howard. in making the transition to becoming a redhead, one must make the necessary revisions to their beauty routine:

  • don't be afraid to try a red lip. in fact, if you keep the rest of your makeup palette relatively neutral, a red lip color (with a bluish undertone) are a nice complement for a fiery red head of hair. just be sure to steer clear of anything with orange or bright coral undertones, as these colors may clash or compete with the hair as a focal point.
  • when it comes to the eyes, stick with golds, taupes and browns. we also happen to love florence's smoky eye paired with a nude lip. also, don't overlook the importance of the eyebrows -- as a general rule, brows should be one shade darker at most. finally, choose a dark brown mascara instead of a pure, deep black.
  • keep your cheeks looking rosy with a soft peachy/coral or pink blush; the idea is to look ever so naturally flushed. if you usually use a bronzer, toss it out! the combination of bronzer and red hair can lead to a monochromatic look, which appears unnatural.

another thing to consider is your skin tone: if you have a fair complexion, you can get away with copper-inflected reds, while those with darker skin tones should opt for a richer mahogany shade. of course, you can always come to the nuBest color department for a consultation with one of our experts to find your ideal color!

are you bold enough to go red? if so, whose auburn locks are your source of hair inspiration? are there any other changes that you're making in your beauty routine this fall? tell us!
