these lashes are no april fools’ joke

We know that Diane Kruger has no trouble getting dressed up for the red carpet. But when you're attending an event at a bowling alley--as she was, for the FX Upfronts this past weekend--bright red lips and smoky eyes might be a bit much--and of course, the actress knows it.

Instead, she goes with an all-natural beauty look that has just enough oomph on the lashes to make it a perfect strike. The key? Keeping the skin and lips simple (Kruger goes with a rosy just-slightly-brighter-than-natural lipstick) is what allows your eyes to really pop. And we promise, it's easier than you think.

FLAIR IT: Sephora Collection False Eye Lashes in Flair - $10 Look for a pair of false eyelashes that flips out at the corner of your eye. If you're not ready to go all-in, cut the lashes and just apply them to the outer edge of your lashline.

CURL IT: Lancome Le Curler - $23 Amp up your lashes--natural and not--with the help of a curler. We're fans of the double-squeeze to ensure as big of a curl as possible.

LUSH IT: Dior Diorshow Mascara - $25 Starting at the base of your lashes, slowly bring up the mascara wand, giving it a little back-and-forth shake as you go to get that extra boom.
