Red eyeshadows and blushes need love too.

It was only a matter of time before red was Colour of the Week. I mean, it's a no-brainer. Once a woman finds her perfect red lipstick, there's no turning back. But I'm not going to show you pictures of women looking beautiful with their glossy, satin and matte red lips. That's what mirrors are for, ladies!

I'm going to show you the red path less travelled, and possibly change your mind about red eyeshadow and eyeliner. Unless this is all old news, then please accept this as a refresher.

Red lips are great. But paired with red mascara, alien beauty soars to new heights. A stroke of red eyeliner paired with an otherwise neutral face adds a nice pop of colour, especially if your winter wardrobe is filled with neutrals and greys, much like mine.

The vampy red is always an option. It's sultry and grunge without having to stick to the traditional black. Katniss Everdeen agrees this look is a win.

Finally, a pop of pale red on your cheeks to brighten up the face, like this tomato red shade from 3CE.

Are you a fan of using red in other places than your mouth? Which reds are your favourite?
