What’s the one makeup item you can never imagine surviving without? Why? Because I am 100% sure yours is going to be mascara.. Unfortunately, today I’m going to take it away from you and alter your focus towards something else.. That is if you allow me to clarify furthermore…
How are you going to literally face the day without your beloved transforming mascara and eyelash curler? I hear you; however -and if you’re someone who follows the latest beauty trends- during the Fall/Winter 2019 major fashion shows in New York, a big number of makeup artists chose not to share your mascara obsession. Artists were choosing to double down on the no mascara look. The reasoning? Maintaining a more natural look.
What Should You Replace Your Mascara With?
1 || Gorgeously pigmented lips would be your first option. At the Jonathan Simkhai runway, makeup artist Grace Lee skipped mascara on model’s lashes and drew more attention towards deep pigmented lips.
2 || Compensate with earth-tone eye shadows. By using a lot of bronze tones around the eye, backstage at Staud, makeup artist Erin Parsons kept the lashes clear of mascara in order to maintain a fresh and natural look.
3 || Opt for a disco-inspired glossy eye makeup look. Backstage at Michael Kors, Dick Page opted for bronze and gold, while others got a violet hue.
4 ||Create an unobstructed eye look. Meaning that although there’s an eye shadow element missing, it’s as important as the other makeup you’re applying. It just acts as a statement. Backstage at Prabal Gurung, smudgy, glossy eye shine sans mascara dominated the models’ beauty look.. Less is more.
5 || Keep the eye look more masculine. As odd as it may sound there is something striking about it. Skipping mascara with barely-there makeup or a thick shock of black across the lids will up the ante and add edge.
6 || Focus on your natural lashes. By curling lashes you will open the eye. So you still look awake, but just a little more naturally awake, which is definitely an aesthetic that is appealing.
