Building A Red Aspen Makeup Look From Start To Finish

With the release of our much awaited Skin Tint, now you have all the supplies you need to build a full face of makeup using Red Aspen products! Let’s dive into a step-by-step guide on how to build a gorgeous makeup look using Red Aspen products.

Prep With Red Aspen Skincare

If you’re going to get dolled up and look good, then you should do some prep to ensure your skin is feeling good too! Red Aspen skincare is a great way to prep your face for a makeup look. Whether you prefer a full face mask or a simple under eye treatment, Red Aspen has just what you need.

When it comes to full face masks, Red Aspen has three outstanding options to choose from, you just have to decide which mask is best for you and your skincare goals!

Our Golden Grapefruit Depuff & Brighten Face Mask is great for reducing the appearance of skin blemishes, improving elasticity, and diminishing the appearance of inflammation.

Pink Pearl Plump & Firm Face Mask is a great option for those looking for a mask that will firm skin appearance, provide ultra-plumping benefits, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.


Check out our Pink Pearl Plump & Firm Eye Mask, Smile Lines Mask, and Forehead Mask for the same benefits! Read all about this product line here!

If you want the ultimate mask to promote rest and relaxation, check out our Lavender Amethyst Moisturize & Glow Face Mask. Meant to soothe, nourish and moisturize your skin, this mask is also infused with a hint of lavender extract to have you relaxed in no time. 

If full face masks aren’t your jam, we have good news for you! This formula also comes in an under-eye mask and a lip mask! To find which Lavender Amethyst Mask is right for you, head over to our blog, “Complement Your Complexion with Hydrating Beauty Masks from Red Aspen”

Last, but certainly not least, our Luxe Leopard Refresh & Rejuvenate Eye Mask! This under-eye mask is an excellent option for those wanting plant-based ingredients and vitamins to nourish and rejuvenate their under-eyes for softer, more radiant-looking skin.

If you want to elevate your skin care routine, try adding in our Aspen Rose Quartz Face Roller! Read our blog, “How to Elevate Your Everyday Skincare Routine with the Red Aspen Face Roller” to get the full scoop on how to use our face roller!

Apply Skin Tint

The great thing about Red Aspen Skin Tint is that no matter the coverage you desire, you can attain it. Our buildable formula allows you to have light coverage one day, and medium-full coverage the next! To achieve light coverage, apply our Skin Tint with a Red Aspen Makeup Sponge or Red Aspen Precision Makeup Sponge.

For medium coverage, grab your Red Aspen Kabuki style F09 Buffing Brush and apply an even layer all over the face. Don’t forget to blend down to your neck! For medium to full coverage, take your Red Aspen F08 Liquid Foundation Brush and apply a second layer overtop the first. 

Voilà! You have flawless, even toned skin that looks and feels good! For a more detailed guide on applying Red Aspen Skin Tint, visit our blog, “Upgrade Your Everyday Beauty Routine with Red Aspen Skin Tint”.

Grab Your Bronzer!

Time to give yourself a bronzy glow with Aspen Bronze. Our bronzer is formulated to help mattify your appearance and eliminate shine while skin-nourishing ingredients help to leave your complexion looking silky-smooth and flawlessly golden. 

To apply, use your Red Aspen F02 Angled Contour & Blush Brush and pick up product onto your brush and apply onto your face where you’d like to see some warmth! Try applying on your forehead around your hairline, right under your cheekbones, and add a touch to your jawline. Make sure to blend! Blending is the key to making sure bronzer looks seamless and natural.

Rose Your Cheeks With Blush

Aspen Blush comes in four different shades: Mauve Bloom, Raspberry Bloom, Peachy Bloom, and Sweet Pink Bloom. Our blushes are made with Aspen Bark to smooth and soften your skin while refining the appearance of pores, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and plump your skin. Cornstarch is included to provide a silky texture and creamy application that melts into skin while Vitamin E defends against free radicals and environmental stressors.

Follow a similar application process as your bronzer, but instead apply blush onto the apples of your cheeks and up onto your cheek bones, and add a touch to the bridge of your nose if desired. 

Set Your Look

Now that you have your base and have added color and dimension back into your face, it’s time to make sure it’s not going anywhere! Aspen Set is a loose setting powder that will help to eliminate shine and keep your makeup from rubbing off throughout the day.

Tap a bit of Aspen Set into the lid and grab your F01 Multitasking Powder Brush. Dip your brush into the powder and be sure to tap off the excess! Use a damp Red Aspen Makeup Sponge or Precision Sponge when applying to the undereye area for the smoothest application. This will help to keep your undereyes looking youthful and hydrated. 

Aspen Set can be used differently based on your skin type. For combination or oily skin, an all over application to reduce shine and leave a long-lasting, matte finish is ideal.

For dry skin, use Aspen Set to blur the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections by applying only to your undereye area and T-zone.

Glam It Up With Highlighter

To add some glitter and glam to your look, grab your favorite Aspen Highlighter! Choose between Gold Crown, Rose Gold Crown, and Pearl Crown. Made with good-for-you ingredients, just like Aspen Bronze, Blush, and Set - Aspen Glow is the perfect addition to your makeup routine.

To apply Aspen Glow, use your Red Aspen F03 Fan Highlighter Brush and pick up product on both the sides and the tip of the brush bristles. Apply the highlighter to your cheekbones, a touch onto your cupid's bow, and try adding a bit to the bridge of your nose! 

Fill In Your Brows

Whether you have sparse brows you’d like to fill in, or you want to add more depth to your already full brows - our brow pencil is just what you need, no matter what your goals may be.

Averie’s Brow Pencil comes in four different shades: Light, Medium, Dark, and Deep. This fine tipped pencil allows you to add small hair-like strokes, easily allowing you to fill in gaps. You can add as many or as few strokes as you’d like for natural or dramatic brows. The choice is yours!

To make sure your gorgeous brows stay in place all day long, add a small layer of our Brow Gel! Grab your Red Aspen Spoolie Brow Brush and dip into the gel, and you’ll be on your way to long lasting brows. 

Check out our blog “Everything You Need To Know About Red Aspen Brow Gel” for all the details on the best ways to apply this product!

Add A Touch Of Eyeshadow

Eyeshadow can add that pop of color to allow you to express your personality. Whether you like natural shades, or want to add some dazzle with a metallic pink - Red Aspen has a palette to help you achieve a beautiful look.

If you’re someone who likes to play around with eyeshadow and try new styles and color combinations often, then our Fulfilled Artistry Palette will be your go-to. Our Fulfilled Palette has 15 highly pigmented powder shadows ranging from sparkling creams to deep browns.

For those who favor consistency and fewer options, we have five mini palettes with four shades each that will give you the shades you need to attain a stunning eyeshadow look for any occasion. 

If you like warm, neutral shades the best, then check out our Bronzed Ivy and Golden Leaf Mini Palettes. With nudes, browns, and metallics - this palette will add flare to a natural look, perfect for any occasion.

Do you prefer more of a pink flare - just like us? Then we recommend our Berry Playful and Party Playlist Mini Palettes. These two pallets have pinks, nudey pinks, and metallic pinks - they’re the ultimate palettes for your inner Barbie!

Our mini palette collection wouldn’t be complete without our Silver Playdate Mini Palette. This palette is perfect for achieving the flirtiest smokey eye.

Still looking for the perfect eyeshadow brushes? We’ve got your back girl! Our Eyeshadow Brush Bundle has everything from the fluffiest crease brush to a small detail brush.

Don’t forget to add a touch of eyeliner to your lash line! Whether you want a subtle accent, or prefer a full wing, Lucy’s Lash Pen has you covered. Lucy comes in Black, Brown, and Clear. Why clear, you ask? The great thing about Lucy is that she doubles as eyelash glue! If you’re planning on applying lashes, but don’t want colored glue or eyeliner - Lucy is your girl. 

Apply Your Favorite Red Aspen Mascara

Red Aspen has all the tools you need to have the most perfect lashes, but let’s start with our mascara first!

We have four different mascaras for you to choose from: Pump It Up, Maggie in Black, Pump It Up, Maggie in Brown, Pump It Up, Maggie Waterproof, and Lift & Lengthen, Lennie.

Pump It Up, Maggie is perfect for those with already long lashes who want to emphasize their gorgeous lashes and add more dimension to them. Her brown shade allows girls to reach more subtle looking lashes that match the color of their natural lash hairs better - like our redheaded friends!

Lift & Lengthen Lennie is our newest mascara and is specially formulated as a tubing mascara. What’s tubing mascara? Great question! Tubing mascara creates tube-like polymers that wrap around each individual lash hair to create more defined, lifted, and lengthened lashes.

Want a full rundown on Lift & Lengthen Lennie? Visit our blog: “Meet Lift & Lengthen, Lennie - Our New Red Aspen Tubing Mascara!”

Before using your mascara, use the Red Aspen Lash Curler to curl your lashes upwards to make them appear longer. After you’ve applied your mascara, use the Red Aspen Lash Comb to comb out any clumps or stubborn stuck together lashes.


Pop On Your False Lashes

If false lashes aren’t your things, no worries! But if you’re a lash guru and your makeup routine isn’t complete without a gorgeous strip lash - then listen up!

Red Aspen has dozens of lashes for you to choose from, so you can pick the lash that best suits your eye shape and your makeup goals.

Our lashes come in silk and faux mink with two different builds: Strips and Minis! Strip lashes cover your entire lash line from corner to corner, whereas minis are smaller strips that are meant to cover less of your lash line. With minis, you can use one small strip or as many strips as it takes to create the look you desire.

Whether you want something dramatic, something wispy, or something to accentuate your cat eye eyeliner - Red Aspen has exactly what it takes to accomplish your lash goals. 

False lashes can be tricky, so here’s a few blogs to check out for all the how-to’s! 

To start, give “Everything You Need to Know About Red Aspen False Lashes” a read. 

Then, “How to Trim Your False Lashes to Perfection” will guide you through sizing your lashes. 

Get the rundown on our latest lash tools by checking out “How to Achieve Your Best-ever Lashes with Red Aspen Lash Tools”

Lastly, learn all about the current lash trends by reading “Tracking the Trends: What False Eyelash Looks are Trending And How to Achieve Them”.

Tie Together Your Look With Some Lip Liner and Gloss

Let’s face it, no look is complete without lip color. Luckily, Red Aspen has a variety of Lip Liners and Lip Glosses you can choose from so you finish your makeup looking and feeling great. 

If you’re looking for a nude liner to compliment your natural look, then Cherrywood and Mauve are the way to go. If you’re looking for something a bit darker, Espresso, Mulberry, and Cocoa take the cake! It’s all up to your makeup goals.

To master lip liner, read “How to Achieve a Flawless Pout with Red Aspen Lip Liners”.

Our glosses come in a variety of shades, from sheer sparkles to deep pigments - you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.

Our Clear Gloss will pair nicely with any lip liner of your choosing, or wear it independently!
