What We're Sweet On: Dual-Ended Mascara That's Twice as Nice

To create big, beautiful eyes for models on the catwalk, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux (who's a staple backstage at fashion week) often uses a lighter-toned mascara on the lower lashes, paired with a darker tone on the upper lashes. This lifting, brightening runway technique is exactly the impetus behind the brand's new Sumptuous Two-Tone Eye-Opening Mascara ($28).

With two different brushes and two contrasting colors, the effect you get is thick, richly pigmented lashes on the top, complemented by just a little something extra on the bottom. The rich black side (the larger of the wands) separates and lightly curls lashes without the flakes, while the lighter side (your choice of blue, brown, or plum) helps to open the eyes. The key is to make sure you're getting very close to the root on the upper lashes but just skimming the ends on the lower lashes. Otherwise, you've got yourself a baby-doll-like situation. But thanks to its smudge-free formula and multitasking benefits, this dynamic dual mascara is something you'll want to take with you practically everywhere this Summer.
