ICYMI, the Met Gala happened last night, where gaggles of celebrities walked to the world’s most daunting red carpet to the delight of fashion and beauty devotees everywhere. From avante garde to shockingly simple, the gowns, jumpsuits and trench-coats-with-trains did not disappoint. And while the world is busy analyzing every last frock (or lack thereof), we were quick to notice that the biggest beauty trend of the night was a beloved classic—the red lip!
Yes, bobs and bright eye shadows also made appearances throughout the night, but the red lip was the runaway trend of the this year’s fashion prom, and we couldn’t be happier about that. Why? Because it’s accessible! Meaning, we can pop into Sephora or our local drug store and rock the very same lip tonight. Bobbing our hair into a sleek ’do or donning a neon orange eye, on the other hand, is a bit tougher when you’re a harried mom on the go.
Here we’ve rounded up our seven favorite red lipsticks and pencils (starting at just $5!) that will give you the bold lip you’re craving. So even though you didn’t score an invite to the Gala this year, you can still feel part of the crowd by borrowing the best A-list trend of the night.
