Red lipstick doesn’t really need anything else. That’s the beauty behind a statement look—it can fly solo without the help of any other product. But if you feel the intense urge to pair it with something else or you’re looking for a little bit of balance (besides groomed brows and a great hair day, naturally), forget bright blush or bold eyeshadow—look to your lashes instead.

That’s right: big eyelashes and bright red lips are THE trend on the red carpet right now. Whether it’s the work of a volumizing, lengthening mascara or a great set of falsies, lots of fluttery lashes are the perfect complement for red lipstick. These celebs show us how to do it right.

But your lashes don’t have to be over-dramatic. Alexa Chung‘s natural eye makeup look lets her cherry red lip stain really speak for itself.
