I would suggest you not wear red eyeshadow - it makes your eyes look tired and swollen. But, I would suggest a red-brown color instead.

I simply cannot wear red eye shadow. I agree it just makes me look tired and sick

You don't necessarily have to pair the color of eyeshadow with the color of the outfit and in this case I suggest you don't. Red is quite difficult to pull off and will probably make you look tired like the girls have said. You could pair the dress with more neutral colors or maybe a bit of golden in the makeup. HTH

I agree with the others...A red dress and red eyeshadow might make you look like an X-Mas ornament. I really like smokey brown eyes with red clothing. You could even do a mild red lip with it.

If you must have a red shadow, NYX makes one called Sunset I think?? MAC Also has a Red Pigment.

If that's the case then in addition to the ones already suggested you can also try Ben Nye shadows or any theatrical make up brand as they have bolder colors and they'll have red for sure.

The reds I wear are all MAC- lovestone, cranberry, and Folie- which is a great red- brown. I actually love the way I look in all those colors. I've been HUGE on the reds this year.

Hugs,

Me

I saw a great red look in a magazine,

They have a white color close to the eyes and then red also they marked the globe line whit a black colour, it was really coool for a makeup thats stands out. But for regular use NONO. Try and get a feeling of what works or not =)

I did red eyeshadow last week! i did not want to invest in red eyeshadow AT ALL, so i bought Hot Topic Shadow Glitter Duo in Red ($3.99). it came with a red shadow and a clear glitter lipgloss. cheap but red- not pinkish like some other ones i tried. i also tried a make up forever red, but at $20+ for a shadow i doubt i will ever use again... nope.

i did a red smoky eye and it looked okay.

BTW-I went and looked at all the red Ben Nye shades- they all looked more Magenta than anything.
