Fall 2017 Beauty Trend: Twiggy Lashes

I've done a pretty thorough search of the makeup trends spotted on the runways for Fall 2017, and one that caught my eye was the return of Twiggy's iconic eye look. It's all about the thick eyelashes on both top and bottom, and eye-popping white eyeliner. The effect gives you a wide-eyed look, and even better, it's super easy to achieve!

You'll just need 3 drugstore products:
  1. Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara
  2. Maybelline Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
  3. NYX Faux Whites Eye Brightener in Honeydew
Here's a closer look...

This is my all-time favourite liquid liner! I use this everyday for my cat-eye liner, and it never smudges at all (thanks to the waterproof formula). It's even survived crazy winter winds when my eyes were pouring out tears. Seriously. Amazing stuff. And it comes off easily with micellar water. Anyway, rather than my usual cat-eye, for this look, you want to just do a nice thin line, ending at the edge of the eye. Simple as that.

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

This is Revlon's brand new mascara, and as it turns out, it's perfect for this Fall look! Thanks to Influenster for sending me a complimentary tube to try out. This mascara is meant to give you an oversized lash look - exactly what I was looking for to give me big, Twiggy-inspired lashes. The innovative formula combines fibres and 360 degree tube technology, which extends and plumps your lashes.

For the ultimate Twiggy effect, I applied quite a few layers of the mascara on both my top and bottom lashes. I was really happy with how it turned out: clumping wasn't a problem, and even with the amount of layers I did, it wasn't flaky at all. The cone shaped brush was also ideal for getting in there along the lash line and coating the smaller lashes too. An added bonus: it's water resistant!

NYX Faux Whites Eye Brightener in Honeydew

No Twiggy look is complete without that pop of bright white liner. This time though, I'm switching it up just a bit with an off-white liner. NYX has these awesome liners for brightening up the waterline, and instead of just in white, they come in variety of light colours. Here, I chose the shade Honeydew which is a light yellow-green to match my green eyes. Pop! Automatically your eyes look way brighter, and the lash line is accentuated.

And there you go, one super easy trend you can rock this fall, with just 3 products! Let me know if you give it a try.

Happy Styling! xo
