Here's a little something I found on Let Them Eat Cake that made me smile for its wonderful style. It's from Selina Steward, a London film director-on-the-verge who's taken inspiration from the silent films of the 1920s for this piece. (Great vanity and chair, too!)
A little Dali/Buñuel-esque as well, isn't it? Very exciting, I'd love to see a series. (Well, actually, there is a version on YouTube that includes another afterward where an unsuspecting lovely gets the 'bee stung' lips she's after, literally, but I posted this instead as the resolution is far better).
I wonder if it's simply a light-hearted poke at women's vanity or a stern satirical finger-shaking at the cosmetics industry for promising such outlandish things? ('Our breakthrough brush gives you lashes 40x thicker!') Or maybe both? It takes two to tango and we really don't learn, do we?
Since we're on the topic of mascara, what I found works best for lengthening and thickening without smudging is £6.95 Rimmel Magnif'Eyes. (When will they run out of clever names for mascaras? I think maybe they already have.) I do use it over primer (Stila makes a great one), but it's still far better than any of the $30+ tubes I've tried in the past (many of which use those awful 'extending fibres' - who wants to look in the mirror after getting home from a date and see LASH DANDRUFF all over your cheek??).
