5 Eyeshadow Looks for Red Lips

Last week, a reader asked for suggestions for eye makeup to pair with red lips, as they are so bold. Though you can certainly wear a bold lip with bold eye makeup, softer eye makeup tends to be easier — these looks reflect five softer looks that work well with red lips.

  1. Neutrals with Urban Decay
  2. Soft Browns
  3. Slightly Smoky
  4. Barely There
  5. Soft Bronzes

    Is it just me or do your eyes look leopard-print-y? They’re gorgeous x

  5. Do you have a section to search this blog? I see above it says search google, but I wanted to limit my search to only your blog. I actually always wear a nude lip and wanted to search and see if you had any posts similar to this.

    P.S. I love that you can wear any lip color. I can’t wear red. It’s the weirdest thing. I’ve tried to find a red for years but it doesn’t compliment my face the way a nude does. + trust me, I’ve tried every color. I work at Sephora. Haha.

    Thanks for these, Christine! I always do a more neutral eye, or TRY TOO, and it ends up coming out too dark. These are great!!!

    Love them all. Love that Dragon! Too bad I found it too bright when I tried it on.

    My question is not what eye to wear but what BLUSH? I’m always stumped about what color cheek to use with a red lip. I just never know what will look the best..
