contoured lashes were all over the spring and summer runways last fall, and i loved them.
a little known backstage trick used by the likes of estee lauder’s tom pechaux and covergirl’s pat mcgrath is to brush contrasting colors on the root and tips of your lashes for a beautiful, wide-eyed look. my favorite combination is to add brown tips to a bold, black lash. the result is stunning and thanks to estee lauder’s new sumptuous two tone eye-opening mascara, i no longer have to fumble with two tubes to get the same lush effect.
this shiny gold number houses two shades and two different brushes that are going to add some major wow to your morning eye routine. the big brush comber on the bottom gives bold volume in inky black while the microbrush on top adds a pop of eye-brightening color. estee actually recommends using the microbrush on lower lashes, but i’m loving it on the tips of top lashes for the contoured effect we saw on the runways.
this mascara delivers serious lash and neither brush clumps, bringing big-time drama sans smudging. it’s one fun trend you’ve just got to try, so make room in the makeup bag – estee lauder has brought us beauty at its best.
new sumptuous two tone mascara is available in three shades (brown, plum, and blue) and you can find it at counters or online for $28.
