Who’s Afraid of the Big, Black Bat?

-------

illamasqua-bat-lashes

Alex Box, creative director of Illamasqua and go-to makeup guru for designers like Gareth Pugh, believes in taking things that are feared (and often viewed as ugly) in nature and making them beautiful. She’s done it with snails—a silver one can be found creeping along the side of the brand’s fragrance, appropriately dubbed Freak—and now she’s doing the same for bats. Do they look like rats with leathery wings? Absolutely. But these creatures of the night have something intrinsically glamorous about them (obviously Giles Deacon saw their potential for Spring 2014). Box was so inspired that she created a set of false lashes that mimic the mammal in flight. Now, just in time for Halloween, they are available in tandem with a matte black glitter polish called Swarm. Treat your tips to the top coat, then batter up.
