Beauty trends come and go, but thick, luxuriously long, dark lashes are forever... right? Not according to the makeup artists backstage at Fashion Week! Take one look at the runway beauty from this season's hottest collections and you'll notice something's missing: mascara.
Yep, the holy grail, must-have, trapped-on-a-desert-island beauty product for most women is on its way out the door. Instead, makeup artists are opting for a more "modern" alternative that allows you to focus on other areas instead. Plus, it makes taking off your makeup in the evening a total breeze! Are you ready to try the trend? Here are five looks to inspire:
Skip the mascara, but use dark brown or black eyeliner around the rim of each eye to mimic the look of intensely thick lashes. Pair your eye makeup with a sugary pink lip balm for 60s babydoll makeup.
A golden glow
Use the opportunity to play up a feature other than your eyes! Applying a shimmery cream bronzer along the top of the cheekbones and on the eyelids will give you a healthy golden glow that's perfect for summer.
Pairing a bold lip color with several coats of black mascara is a classic, but it's also a very put-together, polished look. These days, it's all about looking relaxed, so rock your favorite lipstick with bare lashes for a laidback vibe!
No one can deny the popularity of wildly thick brows, so let them have all of the attention for once! Use brow gel to make them look more voluminous and defined!
Got a great eye color? You can still play up your eyes without mascara: opt instead for a bold eyeshadow and apply it generously. Trust us, no one will be looking for the mascara!
