The focus for this year is lashes. Forget the lips, the cheeks and even the eyebrows. Okay — maybe don’t forget them but only pay attention to them after you have a fierce lash. It’s all about lash, lash and more lash. Lashes can be fun and flirty or heavy and dramatic. They can be long and wispy or short and demure. As long as they are the star of the show.
