Style File: Colored lashes
The holiday season is drawing near, and we all want to look fabulous at all the festive parties. Seven's Belkys Nerey has one way to ensure all eyes will be on you in today's Style File.
WSVN -- Oprah blinks with mink. Avril rocks with red. The stars are faking it with eye-popping lashes and so can you.
Linda Tikal: "The latest trend is colored lashes. Color lashes and rhinestones."
Black is so boring, so eyelash extension specialist Linda Tikal says lash out in color. She'll come to your home and apply individual lashes one by one in any color or combination you want.
Linda Tikal: "They can choose to have one solid color, like for example all blue, all purples, all pinks, or they can mix and match to create highlights, like having your hair done."
They take about one to three hours to apply, but the lashes last up to two months with touch-ups.
Lisette Gonzalez: "I usually do black, but, since we're in October, I want to do colors for Halloween. I'm going to gold and maybe brown."
Ana: "I have blue and purple. It's like rainbow colors."
And, for an extra pop, add some bling to your lashes with Swarovski crystals.
Linda Tikal: "They are applied on the individual lash, and it just enhances the whole look."
At Rapunzel Salon on Biscayne Boulevard, they'll fake you out for one night out with decorative eyelash strips. Choose from feather lashes to crystals to black, rocker rhinestones.
Cynthia Cook: "It's a black line, it's rock 'n' roll, it's sexy, it's sparkly."
And the sparkle doesn't stop there, it extends to hair extensions.
Cynthia Cook: "We have crystals, we have feathers. They are great!"
Be an Indian princess for the night with these clip-on pink feathers or these white ones with rhinestones.
Cynthia Cook: "Five minutes and you're sparkly and ready to go out on the town."
For more permanent glamour, they'll give you real extensions with strands of crystals. They last a couple of months.
Cynthia Cook: "There's a blonde string, brown string, a red string, black string with Australian crystals attached."
So go ahead, flip your hair and bat your eyes
Belkys Nerey: "The individual colored lashes start at $350 and go up to about $700. At Rapunzel, it's $25 for an eyelash attachment for that one night."
