We’re all guilty of “beauty slacking” – time is precious and few, so shaving a few minutes off your routine in the morning means extra sleep or more importantly – extra coffee! In this lazy girl guide, you’ll learn how to fake the biggest, brightest eyes and bold lashes for your most wide-awake look yet. No one will know it took you only 5 minutes and 3 products!
You’ll want to start by giving your lashes a quick curl. Even just a few seconds on each eye makes a world of difference.
Follow up with Butter London Smoke Stick in Buzzworthy. You don’t have to be precise; just use the shimmering beige side all over your lid. Its shape makes it easy to fit the contours of the eye. Then use the dark brown end to rim your eyes. Though this shade has a matte finish, you’ll find it glides on comfortably with no tugging or pulling. If you prefer something a bit more dramatic, try Smoke Stick in Night Shift, a duo of soft gold and deep black. The great part about these sticks is that you don’t need any kind of brush – just swipe and lightly blend the edges. They’re also portable, so if any last minute happy hour plans creep up there’s no need to worry – it’s just as easy to touch-up as it was to apply in the AM.
Next, prep your lashes with an application of Fitlash Primer. Don’t underestimate the power of this step. It helps further curl and lengthen your fringe, along with extending the wear of mascara and preventing smudges. Fitlash has a light formula that doesn’t weigh down the lashes and is formulated with nourishing ingredients, so consider it a treatment as well!
Before letting Fitlash completely dry down, apply the star of the show: Electralash Mascara in Starlight. This glistening gold color is undoubtedly eye-catching and can be used alone or over your favorite traditional black as an extra pop. Try Inky Six, a royal blue, on brown eyes to really make them stand out. Electralash features a double-sided comb brush that helps to define each and every lash without clumping. The tiny shimmers in the mascara stay put all day, so contact lens wearers needn’t fret about eye irritation. Build up your lashes as desired – the more you layer, the bigger your eyes.
Now your eye look is complete! The ease, functionality, and color scheme of just these few products help to cheat bright eyes and massive lashes. Have you tried anything from Butter London?
