Ask any woman what her absolute makeup essential is—nine times out of 10, the answer is mascara. A slick of thickening pigment has long held the key to looking instantly more awake and dressed up before heading out the door. Then why is it that lately, the bare lash has been making a significant splash on social media?
It was spotted across the runways at Fashion Week’s Fall 2017 season—at Chloé, where makeup artist Aaron de Mey left models with naked eyelashes to contrast with the thick black liner, smudged and topped with gloss. He explained backstage that it looked “too done,” invoking the ultimate cool girl Kate Moss as his muse. Tom Pecheux took a similar tack at Balmain with a heavy ring of black eyeshadow boasting metallic accents and nothing else. “No mascara—no need,” he said, gesturing toward models Sara Sampaio and Josephine Skriver’s undone eyes.
There is something about the thin, au naturel lash that conjures a carefree cool, when paired with otherwise rock ’n’ roll makeup. It also falls in line with the come-as-you-are approach gripping fashion of late—that even enhancing a lash to doll-like proportions fails to embrace the individualistic beauty of each person. The movement is enough to make you question the staple in your kit—is it time to leave the lash unadorned? Fortunately, for those women who consider mascara a non-negotiable, there is a middle ground: a slick of Kjaer Weis’s rose-scented all-natural formula, which subtly pumps up the eyelashes in the most naturally beautiful way. Meanwhile, Make’s clear formula gives definition without the telltale tint. From a self-proclaimed no-mascara mascara to a nourishing primer, here are six eyelash enhancers that offer the best of both worlds.Read more at:uk prom dresses
Nicole Scherzinger regrets turning down the chance to meet Michael Jackson.
The 38-year-old singer was asked to meet the late King of Pop - who died of acute propofol intoxication in June 2009 - by their mutual friend will.i.am but opted to stay at home instead as she had a rare evening off from her busy schedule.
Asked her biggest regret, she said: ''Not taking the time to meet Michael Jackson when I had the chance. will.i.am wanted to introduce me to him one evening, but I was in rest mode as my schedule was so busy and I didn't go.
''Now I wish I had.''
The 'Poison' singer did have a close friendship with another departed icon, Prince - who was found dead from an overdose of Fentanyl last April - and still misses him every day.
Asked who she misses most, she replied: ''My dear friend Prince. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't think of him.''
Meanwhile, the former Pussycat Dolls singer was left embarrassed at a recent event when her dress split right down to her ''butt crack'', and she had to flee the evening wrapped in a friend's coat.
She told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''I was in Austria at an event wearing this really lovely gown.
''When I went to sit down, the entire back of the dress ripped right down to my butt crack.
''I went so red, but luckily someone handed me their coat, which I used to cover myself as I made a quick escape.''
But that isn't the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to Nicole.
She admitted: ''I went on a Mykonos trip a few years ago and had an evening out with my friends.
''I'd had some good wine and ended up getting filmed twerking in the street. I had no idea the paps could see us.''
