An exciting first from NARS

NARS is pretty much a go-to for all things makeup (and skincare), but until now, one category has been missing from the line: Faux lashes. I understand that eyelash enhancements may not be essential for everyone, but if you’re hitting a amkeup counter for a pre-event makeover, faux lashes can be the icing on the cake. But now when you head to NARS for that perfect “Jungle Red” lip, you can get the full makeover monty thanks to eight distinct styles.

This faux lash collection runs the gamut from medium-length and graduated full-lash strips to wispy, super-long and curled designs—and there’s even a style that adds definition to lower lashes. All of the lashes are reusuable and made with natural fibers, so at least you know you’ll get a lot of bang for the 20 bucks you spend per set.

I think summer is the perfect time to try false lashes since other makeup is generally light. Start with a fresh, dewy complexion and colorful lips, then boost the impact of minimal eye makeup with a strip of lashes… Oooh la la!
