As for eyeshadow, I have an amazing red shadow from Sugarpill, called Love+. VERY vibrant (as are the rest of their colors) and highly pigmented. I use their Poison Plum and Dollipop to make purple/pink brows all the time. However, they're $12 each. IMO, worth every penny because the quality is very high and the colors last all day as long as I use a primer first.

Another option is getting one of those 88 palettes from Coastal Scents or something similar. Theirs has a red color in it and is very affordable.

Re: making dark brows bright/less dark. The things I do are either draw my brows on with white pencil (I use Nyx's retractable white eyeliner), then cover that carefully with the eyeshadow. For red, it may require a bit of extra application to look RED and not pinkish red. I do this sometimes for pink brows, but I sometimes also use the glue stick brow-covering technique so the pink really shows.
Except with shipping $12 becomes $18 and OP has already said that she'll only be using it once. While Sugarpill is quite pigmented (I just used Love+ for a burlesque "test-act" under spotlights and it showed perfectly), it's not worth it if she's only using it once.
You can find me here on my makeup blog. I get most of my lenses here at PinkyParadise.

Alternative dyes (Manic Panic, Special Effects) are vegetable dyes and stain. They are not water-based. Don't want to see your hair stained later on? Don't do it.
