Red hair is one of the biggest trends for fall. But for natural blondes and brunettes not used to the fiery hues, celebrity makeup artist Amy Hollier of Luxe Beauty Team at Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon has some makeup tips to complete your new red-hot look.

Step 1: Prime eyelids
To start, use a light brown or copper cream shadow (I used Mac paint pot in “Groundwork”) on eyelids and buff out with a fluffy eye shadow brush so nothing is in the crease.

Step 2: Eye shadow
Apply copper/gold shadow to inner half of eyelids closest to the tear ducts. Then apply a bronze/brown shadow to outer half of eyelids. Blend the crease with a clean, fluffy brush.

Step 3: Eyeliner
For a more fashion/editorial look, opt for a dramatic cat eyeliner but in a plummy brown rather than black. It’s much more wearable and accents red hair perfectly. Start by lining the lashline, then building the outer corners and extending out and up at the end of the lashline. Check eye to eye for balance. I used Bobbi Brown’s “Black Plum Ink” gel eyeliner with a pointed liner brush.

Step 4: Eyelashes
Curl, curl and curl. Then apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes. Finish with two or three individual flares of false lashes on each outer corner.

Step 5: Gorgeous Skin
Wipe away any fallen eye shadow and moisturize entire face. Next apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer (I used Mac Face & Body).
Next apply a little glow to the temples and cheekbones with a liquid or cream bronzer (I used Makeup Forever Uplight#23). Lightly dust the center of the face with translucent powder to set. Add a little soft peachy blush to cheeks (I love Smashbox soft lights tint).

Step 6: Lips
Finish the look with a tinted lip balm. I chose the Clinique Chubby Stick in “Whole Lotta Honey” for its beautiful golden nude color
