To celebrate the recent launch of Rimmel London's new Wonder'lash mascara, Refinery 29 asked me to test drive the product and create a bold day-to-night look putting it to use. The biggest draw for me? The mascara's secret ingredient: Argan Oil. I'm a huge advocate for using Argan Oil on your tresses, so it only makes sense to treat your lashes to it too.
Inspired by Rimmel London's vibrant, metropolitan edge, I started with a sleek midi dress as the basis of my day-to-night outfits, then used Wonder'lash in two different ways to bring my beauty looks to the next level. For day, I kept things neutral with a twist: layering the dress with a shearling jacket, fringe booties, and a casual braided belt. For my beauty look, I used a little peach blush on my cheeks, some bronzer on my eyelids, then finished off with a swipe of Wonder'lash mascara on my upper lashes. I found that one coat was all I needed for the day, as it created the perfect separation to my lashes and brushed on smoothly without any clumps.
To transition to evening, I swapped out my neutral layers for rich, textured pieces perfect for a night out. A furry vest layered over a leather jacket, some funky gold jewelry and a statement studded bag added a dash of drama to the nude dress. I also kicked things up a notch with my makeup with the help of a darker blush/bronzer combo, a smoky brown eye, and a bright red lip from Rimmel London's Lasting Finish line by Kate Moss. Then to make my eyes really pop, I layered a second coat of Wonder'lash on my upper lashes, followed by one layer on the bottom. Et voila! My day-to-night transformation was complete, not to mention the new Wonder’lash mascara passed my test drive with flying colors. But now for the true test… which fashion/beauty look do you prefer?
