Over the last several months, red eyeshadow has found its place on the runway, social media, and A-list celebrities. Beloved for its versatile and unexpected flush of color, red eyeshadow has become the makeup trend of the moment. Ahead, 10 looks to inspire a most sultry fall.

Red Wings

If you take a more minimalist approach to makeup wherein dewy skin is the focus, a subtle wash of red eyeshadow on the edges of your lid might be just the fall look for you.

Electric Fall

For weekend brunch or special events, an electric red shadow applied to the inner eye and mid-lid will be sure to turn heads.

Red Head Dreams

What better way to complement your red hair than with a nearly-matching red eyeshadow? The double exposure will create the perfect amount of warmth for your complexion.

All Over Splash

Live on the no-makeup makeup wild side with a pop of red eyeshadow all over the lid. Grab your favorite red hue and feathery brush for easy application.

Red Smokey Eye

Who said smokey eyes can only use dark brown and golden colors? Update the trend with this shimmery red take. Wear it to work or date night.

Graphic Lines

Seen all over the runways at New York Fashion Week F/W ‘22, graphic eyeliner is having a moment. You can recreate the look with red eyeliner and apply stick shadow directly on top for a bold take on the trend.

Perfect Sunset

Channel the sunset with a mixture of red, orange, and gold with this seasonless look. Be sure to apply eye primer on the lids to make this one long-lasting.

Red Hot Flames

Go big or go home is the mantra in this flame eyeshadow look. Opt for a vibrant red color to apply all over the lid and jazz it up with yellow accents.

Subtle & Natural

Whether you wear makeup on occasion or prefer a simpler routine, a beautiful wash of dark pink will help enhance your eye shape and highlight your monochromatic blush.

Glitter Party

For nights out on the town, look no further than a glittery red eyeshadow. The powerful color can be used with a shimmery red or a deep crimson with glitter over it. After all, a little sparkle never hurt anybody.
