Taylor Swift played off the bright strawberry color of her Elie Saab dress when she showed up to the Billboard Music Awards with cranberry eye shadow. Makeup artist Lorrie Turk said she created the look to evoke a timeless beauty with an edge, using CoverGirl products to apply the wine shade to Taylor's lids, carefully winging out the corners for drama. A swipe of black liner and lots of mascara completed the look—gorgeous! Tell us: Would you ever wear red eye shadow?
