11 – Red Lips + Long Lashes
Red lips and super long lashes just seem to go hand in hand together, especially when you’re looking for a sophisticated, Hollywood glam look. This beaut has the look nailed, and her red lips were achieved using a combination of Anastasia Beverly Hills Strawberry Lipstick, and Urban Decay’s liner in “Bad Blood”.
Here’s another twist on the old Hollywood glam look also – add some gold glitter or shimmer shadow to the bottom lashes. It works really well tholepin make the eyes sparkle and pop, and just takes a few extra moments out of your day. If it’s maximum impact you want, this is definitely the look to aim for.
12 – Red Lips + Shimmery Pink Eyes
What do you think about this stunning look? If you’re looking for something a tad out of the box when it comes to eye makeup for red lips, this one definitely ticks all the right boxes. It’s bold, bright and definitely beautiful, working from an almost-gold glitter on the inner corner of the eye, to a darker shade right on the outer corner. You’ll need some good fluffy blending brushes to achieve a look as perfected as this one, and don’t forget to practice. You know what they say – practice makes perfect.
13 – Red Lips + Red Eyes
We know it’s a very bold combination, but when it’s done the right way, this is a look that can mean serious business. Things have been toned down a little using that shimmery white shade on the inner crease of the eyelid, moving to a darker smokey-eye look on the outer corner. Add some liner with a razor-sharp finish, and then throw on lashings of lashes, and you have a passionate, fiery beautiful look that every woman will be envious of.
The black liner is none other than Kat von D’s Tattoo Liner, and the lashes were by Huda beauty. If you check out Gerard Cosmetics, you’ll also find this stunning red lipstick shade. It’s hydra matte lipstick, and the shade is “Cherry Bomb”.
14 – Classically + Beautifully Red Lipped
It’s so stunning and simple, it could almost be a daytime look for you. But first, you must get your base right. You’ll want a picture-perfect finish to your foundation to pull off the old school Hollywood glam looks, just like this one.
We fell in love with that luscious red shade, and it’s by Colour Pop Cosmetics. It’s the Matte X Lippie, and the shade is ‘Trust Me’. You know, just in case you were wondering. Also, we’re in awe of the razor-sharp finish on this eyeliner flick. It’s time to invest in some tape to get those lines straighter we think … What do you use to get your flicks so sharp?
15 – Flick of White Liner
Another way to update your regular red-lipped, black eyeliner look, why not add a flick of white eyeliner to your lower lashes? Why? Well, it helps to make your eyes appear much bigger and wider, for a start, and it can also help to disguise the tired eyes of partying and hangovers. Not that we’re saying you need that, of course.
16 – Simple + Chic
If you want a look that is relatively quick and super simple, this simple and chic one is a good one to look towards. Using Amrezy’s Brooklyn liquid lipstick, a touch of sparkle has been added to the inner corners of the eye to help brighten and lighten them. Don’t forget about the highlighter on your lip’s cupids bow when you’re adding it to your nose too.
17 – Classically Glam Red
You can’t go wrong with a classic red lip, shimmer eye, and black eyeliner combo, as long as you get all three factors right, of course. If you plough so much makeup on your first, you can barely crack a smile, the effect will be more Rocky Horror Show than sultry and sassy, and we’re sure that’s not the look you’re going for. There are ways to wear bold looks like this without going too far, and we’ve learned a few really good tips and tricks from YouTube tutorials, and also Instagram-famous makeup artists, just like the ones we’ve shown you on this page.
18 – Red Lips + Green / Gold Eyes
This look is actually rather festive themed, so think we’re going to reserve the space to recreate this beauty for nearer Christmas time. What do you think though? Would you do red lips with green eyes? Have you already done red lips with green eyes? We think this is a great way to wear the two shades together quite subtly, especially with that pop of gold to bring everything in.
19 – Simple Thin Line
You don’t need to opt for thick black eyeliner when you’re rocking a red lip. We’ve shown you eye makeup for red lips that covers both ends of the spectrum – lots of makeup with big impact, right the way through to barely-there makeup at all. This look leans towards the latter, but still packs some glam-factor into the mix too. Thin down your liner for a quick way to lessen the drama on your eye makeup. It might take a big of practice, especially if you’ve been doing thick liner for years, but you’ll be surprised by how much your eye shape can change, just from changing that one makeup product shape when its on your face.
20 – Bright, Big, Bold and Blue … (+ Green)
Wow! What a beautiful look! It’s probably not one that you’d wear whilst rockin’ up to your day job, but if you’re looking for party time makeup with a twist, this chick is most definitely your gal. As we’ve said before, she’s one of our favorite makeup artists on Instagram right now, and this look shows you just why. Mixing really dramatic and colorful eyes with big and bold red lips isn’t an easy task, but she manages it. Beautifully, too! Is this a look you’d try for yourself?
21 – Red Lips + Copper Tones
Back to something a little more subtle, and copper tones on the eyes work really well when you have red lips and black lining backing them up. Rose gold has been one of the biggest colours to hit us over recent seasons, and it’s a shade that is set to stay too. A modern twist on an otherwise classic look, what do you think of eye makeup for red lips like this?
