Alarm clocks for your eyes: MAGIC STRIPES
If hooded eyelids are not your thing, these could be! Launched by makeup artist Natalie Franz who’s worked with Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift among a host of other celebs, Magic Stripes are clever little strips that prop up – and really open up – your eye area. Fab for showing off a summer blue eye shadow or for an immediate and urgently required wide-awake appearance.
Although they’re far from a beauty essential, they do work really well – in fact better than I’d expected. The little crescent moon stick-ons “stripes” are easy to put on and come in different widths. And you can’t see them on (I thought you would) because they’re transparent.
There’s no way I’d wear them every day, I’m probably just not vain enough (!) but they’d be brilliant for a big event or important meeting. When I peeled off the first “crescent moon” I thought “hmmm?”. By the time I’d applied the second one I thought “wow?!”
Here’s the Magic Stripes story from Natalie herself at www.MagicStripes.com
