Super lashes are the latest eye makeup trend, but how do get them?

Super lashes, they are the new trend straight off the runway that is geuinely wearable and flattering for everyone. Think Twiggy, revamped for the modern era.

Super lashes are one of the trends to come out of fashion week that we're probably most excited about. Why? Because we love when a trend is universally flattering. For example, take micro fringes - they're really cool and quirky, but not necessarily everyone's cup of tea. Similarly, flashes of neon and bright statement lips colours are back. But colour, may not be your thing. Lashes though? I think we can all get on board with those.

Super lashes are the eye equivalent of a statement lip. They first came to the fore during the '60s/'70s. Since then, they've tended to come in and out of fashion each decade. Icons like Twiggy and Sophia Loren are the ones who always come to mind when you think of dramatic lashes.


This season, there are two takes on the look. One is a nod to the classic '60s style as seen at the Anna Sui show. It's beautiful, but... might be a little much for the office of a Monday? One of the tips to pick up from this particular look though is how the bottom eyeliner is placed. It's coupled with lots of mascara to create a shadowing effect. The overall finish gives the impression of thicker lashes, without the slightly costume-y feel of drawing them on.

If you want to rock super lashes in a more modern way, take a cue from Givenchy. At their AW18 show, the look was clean and paired back, save for layers and layers of lengthening and volumising mascara. To bump up the look you can use individual or strip lashes, but the trick is definitely to go hell for leather with your mascara.


Will you be rocking super lashes this season?
