Electric Lashes

4 years ago by

Ever since Pat McGrath sent models down the runway with electric blue lashes for Stella McCartney’s fall 2012 show, I’ve been obsessed with colored mascara. At first though, I admit, a little intimidated.

My daily make-up routine is minimal and my known inability to correctly apply my own eyeliner (although, I am capable of applying it for others…) had me a little nervous to take on blue lashes….

I tested it out a few months ago and never looked back. The look Pat created is a bit bolder than what you are able to achieve when swiping coats on your lashes at home (she applied a blue gel to lashes) but these three mascaras get the job done. What do you think? Wink!
