Maybe I Want to Match My Lashes With My Power Suit.

Colour Lashes sis! What may look like an editorial trend actually started in the Instagram and Twitter streets. This trend was made famous by Lauren B Brown, who is an 18 year old American Makeup artist. Lauren also known as @RaggedyRoyal on Instagram and Twitter has set the beauty industry by storm.

She shot to virtual stardom after trending for matching her lashes to her lipstick, not once but twice. Then almost immediately this trend spread like a wildfire, where now manufacturers have started making coloured lashes for the masses. The manufactured pre-coloured lashes’ strength, was that one does not need to colour them. Their con is that they may be expensive and unavailable locally.

There are three ways of achieving this look:
Technique number one is by doing it yourself to either your natural eyelashes or to your standard black strip lashes, by taking a spool (or an old mascara wand) and applying concealer to the lashes. Next take an eyeshadow brush and dip it into any eyeshadow colour of your choice and apply to lashes.

The second method is by applying your favourite lipstick to the lash and then applying translucent powder to keep the lipstick in place.
The third method is the old school way by purchasing coloured mascara and this is a technique that we all are aware of… nostalgic actually, reminds one of their rich aunt with blue mascara in the 90’s.
Lauren B Brown’s unintentional play on an old trend is well timed, given the fact that we are in an era of self expression.

There are many ways of wearing coloured lashes, from matching it with your lipstick like Lauren, to matching it with your best fitting dress, to monochrome outfits, to not matching them at all. The combinations are endless.
