The 'doe eyes' look is taking over your Instagram feed, and for good reason. The bold, wide-eyed look is simple yet undeniably glam — very reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe. Blissfully, it's also a trend that isn't too hard to perfect yourself as long as you have the right tools.
While the rest of your makeup should be kept very natural, the crowning glory of a doe eyed look is long, fluttery lashes. You can shell out for lash extensions, or you can get the same effect from the L'Oréal Paris False Lash Bambi Mascara ($25.95).
"Mascara is no longer the finishing touch to your look, it is your look," says L'Oréal Paris Global Vice President of Makeup, Zak Yopp. "Just one stroke...instantly transforms your eyes thanks to the eye-opening, clump free brush. The result is the perfect doe eye with delicately curled lashes and an irresistible feminine flutter".
The black, velvety formula is ultra-lightweight which, when combined with an application brush that has short and long bristles, works to curl your lashes as it thickens and lengthens them. And the mascara is long lasting so you only need to apply once to achieve that instant '50s Hollywood style.
Of course, to get the full doe eye effect you need to pair your mascara with the right eyeliner. We suggest L'Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liner ($24.95) in black. Skip the inner corner of your eye and draw your liner on the last three quarters. Be sure to end it in a flick for max '50s diva feels.
