You’ve probably not see spring fever hit anyone quite as much as this Redditor, who seems to enjoy the season of rebirth so much that she created an entire, unexpected makeup look around it — flower lashes, with real flower petals on her lashes.
Now, before you let that inner Miranda Priestly in your head strike this look down as a typical spring-y gimmick, check out her “Pollinated” makeup look. She actually does look like a flower, down to the yellow tone of her blush, which looks like the pollen dust from a flower’s stamen. She used Colourpop’s Paper Tiger pressed powder eyeshadow and Kat Von D’s Pastel Goth palette, specifically the yellow shade “Star,” for her face. On her lips, she used a white liquid liner from NYX to create pretty patterns of dots, almost like a tiger lily, and finished off the look with those seriously statement-making lashes, created with “flowers from my yard.”
Are your allergies going into overdrive? Ours too. According to the OP, she gathered flowers and dipped the petals into lash glue before affixing them to her eyes. It sounds a little risky, especially if springtime makes you sneeze, but it is a lovely and unique look. (Of course, it probably doesn’t last too long, considering flowers wilt pretty fast.)
One Redditor asked if she could see with the petals glued to her lashes, and she confirmed that yes, the flowers didn’t obscure her vision and they were fairly durable as far as false lashes go. “I had to tug to get them off,” she said, and revealed that she wore the look for about 90 minutes before removing the petal lashes. If you’re looking for a springtime statement look, then perhaps it’s time to take a trip to your local greenhouse, you delicate flower, you.
If you’re into florals…
