Rad or Bad: Red Eye Makeup

rad-or-bad-red-eye-makeup-1
Traditionally cast for lips and nails, red shades are now appearing in the form of eye makeup, having been spotted on the runways, on Rihanna, and now Dolce & Gabbana has a new eyeshadow duo featuring a gorgeous garnet shadow. It's a striking statement, to be sure, but it also reminds us of the red-rimmed look our beloved True Blood vamps rock on the small screen. What do you think? Is red eye makeup red-hot or a little too "night of the living dead?"
