Rad or Bad: Red Eye Makeup

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?"
