Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Hey girls,

 

So I happen to LOVE the colour red. I thought why not ask your thoughts on wearing red eyeshadow or red eyeliner ?. I know it's not a colour most people would be able to pull off. However I believe there are a lot of you ladies who would be willing to try and make it work or have made it work :-D

 

 

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I haven't really seen many looks with red shadow or liner? Pics anyone?

 

I think I'd try red eyeshadow maybe. Do you wear them?

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I have tried red eyeshadow when I was in high school. I loved how it looked. 

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Try a google search and you'll see pictures of it :-)

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Stains my lids like a b* no matter how I prime them.

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Hey Calamityjane,

 

I find that use to be the issue with a lot of very pigmented colors lol. 

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Yes, for me red lasts to the next day and I have to cover cover cover Smiley Happy 

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

It's too bad that it causes that kinda issue. I love red so much <3

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Sugar pill is the one I use most, very pigmented.  

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I wonder if we carry that brand here in Canada.

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I've worn red eyeshadow before. When applied normally it makes most people look ike their eyes are irritated. However, when I foiled it (using a wet brush) and used black in the crease it looked really nice. It was a super dramatic statement though Smiley Happy

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Oooh I bet it was gorgeous

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I wore it to a Halloween party and I got tons of compliments Smiley Happy

This was sort of the inspiration, but the red I used was matte and I changed the shape to fit my eye shape. But this is kind of close Smiley Happy

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I wear red eyeshadow and i'm one of the lucky ones that can pull it off Smiley Happy hurrah! (*but I can also pull off BLUE hair...*) Smiley Tongue

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I tried red Geisha style:

I also tried a red/orange/gold/brown fall folage combo but I didn't have enough space on the lid to make it work, lol. Red is not something I'd wear, but reddish orange I'm fine. I got the tangerine liner from last yr at Sephora and rather like wearing these 2 looks:

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I've worn a dark brick color successfully before (madras by Bare Minerals) The wrong reds though and it may make your eyes look tired. 

 

I ordered a Lorac Little Lace palette that has some deep, dark reds that I look forward to trying. I did see a nice tutorial on YouTube recreating a Kristin Stewart look that had a MAC reddish paint pot in it that was pretty awesome.

 

 

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I used it as my base color and complimented it with gold; I have only used red shimmer eyeshadow, I don't know how it would look as a matte shadow. But when I wore red shadow, I made sure my lips and cheeks were very subtle so I didn't look swollen lol.

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Wow that sounds amazing Smiley Happy I have to try that one too!

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I wore a look very similar to this for my wedding, actually. A bit more yellow and less red, no shadow under the eye, and with cat eye liner, but very close. 

 

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

Very pretty!  That's one of the ways I used to wear mine Smiley Wink

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

That look is very similar to Marilyn Manson's in Dope Show !

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I haven't worn red in a long time... It's a bit difficult to pull off and stains. I mean I can pull it off but need to make sure it doesn't make me look sick or on drugs Smiley Very Happy  I had one of the MUFE red shadows and no matter what I did it still stained my eye lids. lol

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I got a Sephora Collection one in my 2011 Blockbuster and it doesn't stain. However the same color isn't in their normal collection or this years one Smiley Sad

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

There's a Sephora Collection red shadow called Cherry on Top or something similar to that, I just picked it up the other day so I haven't used it yet though. It looks nice and pigmented with a primer underneath!

Re: Your Thoughts : Red Eyeshadow ?

I was actually just thinking about this, when I was young my friends and I (who were into drum and bass and dressing "futuristic", since in 2000 we thought of dnb as "the future) liked red eyeshadow. I had to use MAC Blush since a red like that isn't typically made into eyeshadow due to the pigments used. Can't say it was flattering but it was a statement.

 

It's actually pretty on blue eyes (opposite color). A good way to pull it off is to use silver as liner, this way it won't make your eyes look bloodshot. I don't think it's flattering on brown or hazel eyes, maybe on green. It can work paired with other cool colors for a "sunset" look also (which would make it look more pink).
