Isabelle Kun, 20, had a new set of eyelash extensions applied by an aesthetician last Tuesday. By Thursday, her eyes were swollen almost completely shut.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and on the Fall 2017 runways we are noticing modern takes on bold beauty looks from the pasts. An eye-opening trend that’s already blowing up: babydoll lashes.
