Dramatic Hair and Makeup Looks
This fanciful touch is just barely noticeable—until someone gets close. You’ll need: a set of false lashes (such as Sephora Collection False Lashes Astonish, $8, sephora.com), an eyelash adhesive (such as Duo Eyelash Adhesive, $8, sephora.com), a straight pin (don’t worry—it’s not going anywhere near your eyes), and fine glitter (such as MAC Cosmetics Pigment in Fuchsia, $20, maccosmetics.com). First cover the tips of the false lashes with eyelash adhesive. Separate them with the straight pin as needed. While the lash tips are still wet, dip them in the glitter; set them aside to dry for about 10 minutes. Next, apply the lash adhesive to the lash strips and place them on your lids, as close to the lash lines as possible. For a toned-down effect, not to mention a less ambitious art project, coat your lashes in black mascara (such as DiorShow 360, $36, sephora.com), then sweep a glittery mascara (such as Hard Candy Lash Tinsel Glitter Mascara in Seventeen’s a Dream, $6, walmart.com) onto just the lash tips.
A thing of beauty should be a joy forever—or at least until five o’clock. Here’s how to stretch the life of your makeup, hair, manicure, perfume—and more.
