We've said it before and we'll say it again: eyeshadow is boring except when it's red. Now, in the wake of Rihanna's killer red-eyed appearance at the Met Gala — a spot-on homage to Rei Kawakubo — we've been spotting scarlet, brick, and fire-engine shades on eyelids everywhere. Wondering how you could pull off such a bold look? Here's 17 options.

1. A twist on the smoky eye
