Finding the silver lining

04 Feb 2008 | Posted by Editor

Feel that slight breeze tickling your skin right now? That's just me swishing my new set of oh-so-flutterable false eyelashes. Okay, so I'm showing off, but long, luscious lashes have that way of making you feel like a devastatingly hot bombshell, don't they? They're high wattage weapons!

Which is why I asked make-up maven Victoria Baron for guidance
