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.
