Lash Out
Subtle and natural, minimal eye make up like Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Snow makes a soft, sheer statement, but this look can be taken to new heights with natural or faux lashes that stand out. To bring the drama, apply lashes, then curl with BillybBeauty Eyelash Curler at the base of the lash line.

Try Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Bar, which offers an array of falsies to choose from. Feeling artsy? Apply a thin layer of face paint using a shadow brush.

Play up those dreamy eyes by going for the gold with a dab of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eye Gel in Arena.

How faux would you go to look fabulous? Big shapely brows along with falsies applied to the top and bottom lids are a must! To get all the fringe benefits with voluminous lashes, try MAC Lash in #36 for the upper lids and MAC Lash in #40 for lower lashes to create a dramatic sixties vibe. Coat lashes with a thickening eye plumper like Benefit BADgal Mascara in Rich Black to polish it off.
