The ruby has been known to arouse the senses and stir the imagination guaranteeing health, wisdom, wealth, and love. Some believe it possess charact

eristics of devotion, integrity, courage, and happiness. This romantic gem is the rarest of all gemstones and is one to be desired, just like you! The shade of ruby red is classic and bold and can be worn so many beautiful ways.

As stunning as this color can be in a pair of earrings or in a necklace, it can be worn just as beautifully on your face! Let’s start with the obvious; there is hardly anything more sassy, dauntless, and eye-catching as a ruby-red lip.  A few dabs of concealer, a pair of false lashes, and a red lipstick is one of the simplest ways to look sexy and put together in no time. If you prefer a more sheer red that you can swipe on mirror-less, try a red Lip Gloss .

Now, let’s get creative.  Start with the gorgeous red shade in the Eyes on the ‘80s palette (it’s 2nd down on the 1st column). How does one wear red on the eyes you ask? Start soft and build. Use the shadow with a small brush as a liner on the top lash line and pair it with a softer shade on the lid. Try it on the outer “v” with a neutral color that softly fades into the red. Don’t forget to blend for best results, make sure to take your time on this step! Want to take this look to the next level? Take a red Glitter and add it to the center of the lid for a pop of ruby! Make sure to use a primer or sticky eyeshadow  to help hold the glitter in place.

The color red represents: energy, determination, and power. Rock this color with confidence and show just how amazing you Ruby Birthstones really are!
