For Pat McGrath’s “Sophia Loren […] in a Greek theater”-inspired beauty, spotted at Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring ’14 show, less was more. The one place the face painter didn’t skimp? Lashes, which were coated generously in the house’s Passioneyes Duo mascara (available at saks.com). The resulting fringe managed to be at once lush and natural, thanks to a formula that includes beeswax and tapioca polymers, which add curl and volume without sacrificing touchability. A curved wand fans and lengthens lashes to proportions befitting D&G’s quintessential bombshell. McGrath opted to use Terra, an appropriately rich chocolate shade, but I’m most taken with Nero, a jet-black that’s big on impact—even when you’re feeling low on effort.
