Getting there

Selena isn't the first gal from T-Swift's squad to rock this bold trend. Gigi Hadid used red eye shadow for a flawless beauty look at a Sports Illustrated event and she looked gorgeous. Choose a red shade that's closer to brown to make your eyes pop without trying too hard.


If you think you can handle the red and want to show off your bright and bold eyes, opt for a brighter red and create a smokey crimson eye.
