Yay Or Nay: What Do You Make Of Kristen Stewart's Vampy Red Eyeshadow?

Yay Or Nay: Kristen Stewart's Red Eyeshadow Yay Or Nay: Kristen Stewart's Red Eyeshadow

We’ve pretty used to the old red-eye what with bi-annual fashion weeks to attend across the globe and beauty shoots in far flung destinations. But today we’ve been talking about a different kind of red-eye, one that’s more akin to the red carpet than the runway. Yep, it's all about Kristen Stewart’s red-eye, which made a goth-tastic appearance at a(nother) On The Road screening in New York. She might have been wearing a sheer-panelled ensemble by Catherine Malandrino, but it was the starlet’s burgundy eyeshadow that really took us by surprise. We all know she's a vampy one but this look is a far cry from the sultry smoky eye K-Stew normally goes for, which is why it got us into a heated debate...


Ok, so it’s a little controversial to go for this unusual eye shade but hey, there’s no denying that Kristen still looks hot, right? She makes her own beauty rules, which we LOVE, and this red look is yet more proof that she’s capable of doing her own thing in her own way - and having the attitude to make it work. She’s cleverly gone for little else on the makeup front so as not to over-complicate the beauty look and the festive touch of red really suits her green-y eye colour. It's also an adventurous move to edge away from the classic smoky eye, which is seen day-in-day-out on the Hollywood glitterati. Has she taken inspiration from Donna Karan's Autumn Winter 2012 collection?

If there’s one colour in the whole of the makeup world that you’re told to stay away from, it’s red. Red is for ill people who are tired and sick and whose eyes look like they should be hiding behind an oversized pair of Tom Ford sunnies. Red is alarming (and not in a good way) and not one that’s exactly going to pull the boys, nor is it flattering to tell you the truth – zombie springs to mind in fact. She looks like she could have got her younger sister to do her makeup for her with the colour she’s gone for. Red should be saved for your lips and tips, where it works best, and not on the lids where it turns you into an ugly, unattractive looking beauty disaster. Sorry Kristen…
