Would you wear eyelash jewelry?
Etsy designer makes bling for your lashes.
These days, there seems to be an obsession with bringing attention to the eyelashes. In the midst of a growing trend geared towards longer, more luscious lashes via eyelash extensions and the use of lash-enhancing products like Latisse, there’s a lot of options out there for getting notice-me eyes. But this option may top the rest.
Etsy seller Natalie Russo is making a line of jewelry for your eyelashes—and it will definitely turn heads. The eyelash jewelry comes in a variety of themes, including neon rainbow feathers, snowflakes, and even googly-eye varieties. There's also a design called the "bubble bath," featuring a mini rubber ducky.

According to the seller’s Etsy site, the jewelry is created by hand-weaving tiny glass beads onto ultra thin wire to create a super light band that shapes to your eye. To apply these intricate designs, just bend your “jewelry” into the correct shape, apply eyelash glue and adhere the piece to your eyelid, just like you would for any other false eyelashes.
“The beads used in this shop are primarily Japanese Toho brand seed beads. Their smooth shape provides maximum flexibility and comfort,” says the designer on her web site. “Japanese Delica brand seed beads are also used for their superior shine and smaller size. Some designs also include 2mm Swarovski crystals and genuine gem stone beads.”

Something about the concept of applying wire to our eyelids seems terrifying, but never fear, this isn’t just any old wire. “The wire used is 34 gauge jewelry wire consisting of either silver or copper. This wire is so extremely thin and light, a single strand of it can be difficult to see.”
With lashes like these, we won’t even have to work at batting them—they definitely get attention all on their own. Check out more pics of the lashes below.

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
