Hot trends for S/S: cutouts and statement make-up. Trust us (and read all about the return of make-up in the April issue, out now). And we've found something that combines the two.
From Lady GaGa's pearl-covered visage to Natasha Khan (aka Bat For Lashes) and her penchant for facepaint, via sparkly sequins on Florence Welch and Rihanna's bigger-is-better false lashes, we're loving the excuse to play dress-up with make-up again.
So, naturally, we ADORE these incredible lashes by Paperself, inspired by the traditional Chinese art of paper cutting.
Teeny-tiny horsies! On our eyes! Name something cooler than that. Oh, you can't. Because NOTHING is cooler right now than teeny-tiny animals on your eyes. (Creature motifs, also big for S/S. Fact.)
Choose from big or small horses, top (symbolising success); gorgeous peonies, middle (happiness) or large or small peach blossoms, below (love).
Large lashes, £12 a pair; or petits, £10 for two pairs, by Paperself, available exclusively from cult boutique Luna & Curious. For mail order, call 020 7033 4411, 12-6pm; or email firstname.lastname@example.org (plus £2 p&p).
