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 can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
