The Perfect Mix of Cool Reds: Formula by Rusk's Gerard Caruso Ah, red. It seems this color, now more than ever, is in the spotlight. From the cover of MODERN's April issue, to the award-winning Jessica Chastain, red is a classic color! However, it is a color that opens the door time and time again with new variations on tone. In this red, seen in the April issue of MODERN, Rusk Artistic Director Gerard Caruso created a stunning finish full of shine, topped off with a full fringe and a smoky eye.

Caruso says a perfect mix of cool reds is the ideal choice for green eyes and light skin--with color results like this, wouldn't you agree?
