One of the biggest eye makeup trends around right now is doll lashes—in essence, lashes that look like your favorite doll’s. How do you get doll lashes, though? Well, it’s about finding the best mascara to achieve this of-the-moment beauty trend. With major retro vibes, doll lashes create a wide-eyed look much like, yes, your favorite childhood toy—as well as your favorite ‘60s icons. Doll lashes are an especially great makeup option for a night out, and below we’re sharing a step-by-step makeup tutorial featuring the best mascara to use to get doll lashes. So, grab your makeup bag and follow along!
Before getting to the fun stuff (a.k.a. applying your doll lashes), you’ll want to create a flawless base so that all the attention is on your eyes. Start by applying a primer, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer, then follow up with a foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation. Finally, use a concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, to disguise dark circles under eyes—you want the attention to be on your lashes, not your dark circles!
Now, it’s time to get working on those eyes! Put an eye shadow of your choice onto your lids. When choosing your shade, go with something super-light or neutral that won’t compete with your pretty retro lashes. If you want to stay on the vintage spectrum, you can never go wrong with pastels and shimmering neutrals, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Little Beige Dress, Mademoiselle Pink, and Paris Beach.
Since doll lashes take a while to get the hang of applying, it’s a good idea to have a bottle of micellar water, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types, and a cotton swab handy for quick touch-ups.
Using a waterproof pencil eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black, line your upper lid with a slight flick at the outer edge for a minimal wing tip. If you have hooded eyes and find that achieving wings is near to impossible, apply the eyeliner while your eyes are open.
Reach for a volumizing fiber mascara in the darkest shade you can find, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara in Blackest Black. Apply a coat to on both your top and bottom lashes to amp up the drama. You can also embrace super-retro vibes by falsies into the mix. It’s up to you!
Here’s where the fun begins! To complete the doll lash look, use your eyeliner to draw longer lower lashes on. All you have to do is draw dots as close to your lashline as possible and extend them out as far as you’d like. Just make sure that they’re thicker at the top and gradually thin out. Also draw dots all the way out to below the wing so that the shape of your eye can be maintained. Don’t get upset if your first go around doesn’t go exactly as expected—these lashes are no easy task at first, but with patience and practice you’ll become a pro! Dip a cotton swab into micellar water to clean up any mistakes.
Voila! Just like that you have doll lashes like the runway models. Once you get more comfortable with this eye makeup trend, feel free to experiment with other eyeliner and mascara color combos for a fun, bright look. After all, the ‘60s were never shy about color! And if you really want to take it a step further, pair it with your favorite mod-inspired lip for a fashion statement that will have heads turning.
