Ravishing Red

Red is another great example of a colour that makes blue eyes appear as though they have had an extra dose of vibrancy, but many people tend to turn away from using red shades in fear of it giving off that 'bloodshot' or 'infected' appearance.

I find the best way to avoid that sickly effect is to make sure not to over blend your red toned shadows, and ensuring that the colour is well packed onto the eye so that that it doesn't fade or diffuse into a more pinkish shade that might make it look like you have been rubbing your eyes. I find this technique works well for pink shadows too, which unless done properly, can also result in looking rather unsightly.
