True, neon eyeshadow can be risky to pull off successfully, but if there's one eyeshadow color that seems especially intimidating at first glance, it's the firey, sanguine red.
Short of all the vampire makeup trends we've been seeing this fall, red can also be a winning color for festive holiday style, given it's applied the right way and doesn't come off like a bruise or sad effect of sleep deprivation.
OneIndia.in's Suparna Chakraborty says that mixing red and gold eyeshadow will take the edge off the color and lend depth to eye makeup.
"Keep the red darker on the inside of the eye lid and use the golden [shadow] on the edges. This will highlight the shape of your eyes, make your eye makeup festive and match well with the party mood," she wrote.
Finally, you won't want your lashes to get lost behind a wall of red pigment, so finish with a couple coats of blinc Mascara. Its water-resistant tubing formula won't flake or smudge to keep your lashes looking bloody hot.
