Many times, women and girls with red hair try to avoid clothing in this shade, and makeup even more so. However, True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll recently proved that red eyeshadow works on gingers - producing an unexpected effect that helps her stand out from the crowd.
At the CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute event recently, the actress wore her wavy ginger locks swept up and away from her face, allowing her milky white complexion to steal the show. After applying a thick line of black eyeliner, the star achieved a smoky eye with an eyeshadow palette of peach and rust hues. The deep rust shade covered her lids and turned to a light pinky-peach as it reached her brow bones.
InStyle Magazine reports that this look works on Woll because of the way it echoes her hair color, stands out against her skin tone and contrasts with her piercing blue eyes. Blondes might consider trying a gold and yellow blend near the eyes, while brunettes may be able to achieve a similar effect using chocolate and sand-colored eyeshadow.
