Lately, I've been on a real lash kick. I've been 100 percent attentive to my lashes 100 percent of the day. Mascara in the morning and multiple eye lashing curlings throughout the day. What can I say, I just started to appreciate my long, thick lashes. Today, looking down at my 3-year-old and 2-month-old nieces, I saw some real potential for beautiful lashes someday! It's just something I've been paying a lot of attention to. I think when someone goes the extra mile for their lashes, she'll look much more glamourous. Lashes are so defining. I mean, when someone has bold, glam eyes, that's all you're gonna look at. It's mesmerizing in a way.

Let's take, for example, Erika Bearman, Oscar de la Renta's VP of communication and infamous "PR girl." Her round, green eyes are the first thing you'll see when you look at her. When we met, I could've looked at her eyes for hours. With the help of her long, black lashes, they were so complete. As an avid follower of hers, I know she's a mascara addict. Because of the way she grooms her gorgeous lashes, her beauty is so bold and defined.

So what happens if you're sans long lashes... Don't clump on the mascara, let me tell you that. Thick, yucky mascara is no solution. But the solution would be a little miracle in a box. That miracle happens to be fake lashes. You might've just read that and thought "yeah, right," but not all faux lashes look like wings. Last year, I wore faux lashes to my junior prom, and my eyes have never looked better. I didn't necessarily need them, but they gave my eyes the kick that I've always wanted. Ever since, I've been meaning to go to Sephora and purchase more for everyday use, but that's another story. Anyhow, there are so many types of faux lashes that are made for any occasion, any reason, and anyone. Look at the trusty faux lash guide I found on Pinterest, and you'll be good to go. You certainly don't want to overdo it, but a little va-va-voom in the eyes is chic.

What do you think? Are you a starlet? A little flirt? A debutante? With the help of fake lashes, I suppose you could be any of the above. You know what they say, the eyes are the window to your soul. So why not have an ultra-glam soul? That's right.

Much love from me, my mascara and I.
