Exclusive! Flirt's Newest Product Is the Easiest Way to Add Christmas Cheer to Your Lashes
If you had told me 10 years ago that false lashes would be making a huge comeback in 2016, I probably would have laughed at you. The fluttery little strips were too dramatic for the average woman's everyday life (and seemingly impossible to apply). But today, it's clear that the lash landscape has evolved immensely over the past decade. There are more kinds of falsies than ever before, and because of influencers on YouTube and Instagram, women have learned how to apply them and been inspired to wear them regularly.
One of the most recent developments for ease of application was the launch of Flirt Flashes Lash Applicator. This genius tool closely resembles the Wite-Out correction tape you used on your notes back in high school: as you wind up the roll inside, it dispenses a row of three individual lash buds. Each row is expelled base side out, so you can dip it into glue, then apply it directly to your lid instead of fussing with tweezers or other unwieldy tools.
For holiday 2016, the Flirt team has exclusively revealed to POPSUGAR that it's producing Party Flashes ($28, available Dec. 1 only on FlirtCosmetics.com), a limited-edition take on the brand's lash applicator. It works in the exact same way as the original device but instead dispenses red and green buds (seen above). This adds a flirty bit of Christmas color to your wink. I'm basically seeing them as ornaments for my eyes.
Whether you're a lash pro looking for a few extra tips or are hoping to kick your falsies game into high gear, holiday parties — and these funky lash buds — are the perfect excuse to strengthen your skills. I consulted with celebrity makeup artist Priscilla Ono (who counts Flirt ambassador Amber Rose as one her clients!) on the best ways to rock red and green lashes, application tricks, and clever ways to manage pesky adhesive.
