Red Eyes Are The Season’s Biggest Beauty Trend

And here’s how you can rock them in real life


Red eyes definitely top our list of beauty looks we never thought would become a trend. Bold and completely out-there, red is a seemingly intimidating colour to wear in real life. 

But as the Fall/Winter 2016 runways have shown us, it’s a surprisingly beautiful hue to apply on the eyes — effortlessly drawing attention, much like the way red lipstick does. 

The question now is, how should we rock red eyes? Here are 2 amazing ways to try the season’s most exciting beauty trend.

1. Go bold

Cover the entire eye socket with intense red eyeshadow, and add black eyeliner and mascara to define the eyes.

Use these: Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow, $32, Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Rouge Brulé, $52, and Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow 4 Palette, $72.

2. Go easy

Just go with a clean stroke of red eyeliner.

Use these: Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Agapé, $36, and Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner in Fireball, $35.
