Rock the season!

Great news! Just as the end-of-year party season approaches, the tide is turning towards edgy, thick and deeply black lashes.

When it comes to party-perfect festive looks, it’s often the smoky-eyed makeup look, complete with a few sparkles, that wins out. But this year promises to look a whole lot different as the star for the end of 2016 looks set to be sultry, chic and entirely rock-ready lashes. Or, in other words, beautifully bold, supercharged lashes that have been loaded with volumizing mascara from root to tip and all paired with a bold dose of eyeliner right across the upper lid.

To get the look:

1. Start with eyeliner. To begin, apply eyeliner in a thin line that extends slightly beyond the outer corner of the eye. Whether you’re used to applying liner or not, for best results, go for a speedy, simple and intuitive product such as Lancôme’s Grandiôse Liner with its bendable angled tip that makes for definition, precision and total symmetry across both eyes.

2. Next stop, go for heavy metal lashes. That means opting for maximum lash volume from root to tip and a long-lasting, length-boosting mascara formula that won’t flake or run as the hours go by. And all in an ultra-black shade that won’t lessen with intensity. Think: Grandiôse Extrême that promises length, volume, rich pigments and long-wear color all while volumizing lashes for a bold look that lasts until the early hours of the morning.
