Several designers, cosmetic companies and makeup artists have been emphasizing the lower lashline for Spring 2011. At the Zac Posen show at Fashion Week, we even saw big, lush false eyelashes on the lower lashline.
To me, this look is just too outrageous to become a mainstream trend. False eyelashes give enough women fits on the upper lashes — can you imagine the hassle of putting them on your lower lashes?
Is this look just runway chic or will it actually translate to the city streets?
Personally I think we’ll continue to see a lot of emphasis on the lower lashes with bright or metallic eyeliner or neon shadow lining the lower, outer lashes. But I don’t think we’ll see many women gluing false lashes on the bottom.
