OOH LA LA – Lush Purple Lashes!

A lot of ladies claim that if stranded on a desert island and they had to pick but one cosmetic to have, mascara would be their beauty product of choice in order to maintain any semblance of looking cute upon their rescue.

Lashes have certainly benefited from recent technological advancements in beauty products and what was once reserved for costume dressing and super special occasions is now frequently incorporated into daily routines and regular maintenance. Between vibrating wands, mace shaped brushes (that’s the medieval weapon that looks like a spike-covered club… next to your eyeball), false lashes becoming more common than ever, and lash extensions being done as often as highlights, we have no excuse now for lackluster lashes.

In the same way that styling is partially an experiment, so is makeup application; trying a cream blush instead of a powder one, attempting to use liquid liner through endless trials and errors to perfect your cat-eye, picking out a new lip stain in a color you wouldn’t normally wear, etc… Well kids, it’s time for another experiment. Step away from your black and brown mascaras and pick up one in an unexpected subtle jewel-tone or a high impact bright. You’ll get the eye-opening effect you want but it’ll look fresh and fun! Take a look at these stars who’ve given the trend a go and reaped the stylish benefits:
