Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I think eyelash extensions are one of life's simple pleasures. Along with nails and fake tan, they are a quick and inexpensive tweak that can make us feel 1000 times more confident. And while it's nice to get them done by professionals once in a while, we're just not ready to give up our daily Pret habit yet, so we're not strangers to DIY-ing it, too.
But forget your bog-standard black falsies because there's a new trend in town - and just in time for festival season, too. Meet rainbow lashes, the uber colourful eye accessory pimping up our peepers in the best way.
At the helm of the trend is (you guessed it) beauty blogger @fruzans_beauty, who has posted a step-by-step video tutorial on her Instagram, showing us all how to get the look at home. Now, if the phrase 'rainbow lashes' gives you visions of looking like My Little Pony on acid, relax - you can go subtle with this trend too. Just apply the coloured lashes in between black ones as Fruzan does here:
The welcome news is you won't need an NVQ in beauty to nail this look but a steady hand certainly does help. First you apply a strip of individual black lashes along the top lash line to set the base, then paint the remaining lashes with yellow, pink and purple liquid lipstick for a colour pop, before applying them with tweezers just beneath the black set. Repeat on the lower lash line and you're done.
Could rainbow lashes be about to steal the floral crown's, erm, crown this summer as the most wanted festival look? We can't wait to see.
Will you be giving rainbow lashes a whirl? let us know @soFeminineUK
