On Tuesday, February 4, Lauren B. Brown tweeted a series of photos in which she’s wearing colourful false lashes that match the lip colour she’s wearing in each picture: a rich purple, a sunny orange, and a vibrant royal blue. In the fourth photo, instead of matching her lashes to the toasty brown lip shade she’s wearing, her eyes are surrounded by a full rainbow of colours. “Never going back to black lashes!” she wrote.

It has taken me nearly 41 years – over a decade of which has been spent as a beauty editor – to feel confident putting on false lashes. Seriously, it’s just in the last few weeks that I finally nailed it. And it looks like I figured it out just in time because a makeup artist is going viral on Twitter for her colourful take on big, beautiful eyelashes – and I want in on the fun.
The tweet has caught Twitter’s collective eye, liked more than 100,000 times in a single day, and garnering 14,000 retweets in the same time frame. “The rainbow lashes knocked me out of my chair,” one person responded. “Might’ve just changed the game,” another said.
Brown shared a quick look at her process on TikTok, showing that that reason her lips so perfectly match her lashes is because she coated the lashes in the same liquid lipstick and eye shadow.
We asked Brown for more details on what she used to add colour to her traditional false lashes and here’s what she told us: For the purple look, she used Coloured Raine Liquid Lipsticks in Berri Raine and Roulette, and a matching shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Vol. 1 Palette. For the orange look, she used KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in A-Go-Go and a shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Vol. 3 Palette. And for the blue, she used a combination of Coloured Raine Liquid Lipstick in Royal, Karity Liquid Lipstick in 99 Problems, and a matching shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Vol. 2 Palette.
