True Story: Nikita Dragun’s False Eyelash Once Fell Off on a Date
Bad dates happen to everyone – even Nikita Dragun. In an admission that honestly made us question our morals for laughing so hard, the Dragun Beauty founder recalled one particular moment in which one of her false eyelashes fell off in the middle of a romantic outing. “I just ripped them off and looked like a naked mole rat for the rest of the date,” she told POPSUGAR. “It was just traumatic.”
That even a beauty guru could suffer a mid-date blunder this hilarious sounds like something straight from the writer’s room of a modern romantic comedy, which is probably why we weren’t too surprised to hear about Dragun’s newest rom-com-inspired partnership with Benefit Cosmetics. The 24-year-old is the star of Benefit’s “Love Archually” campaign, promoting the brand’s Precisely, My Brow Pencil ($24). In the campaign’s two, short promotional videos, Dragun plays something of a hopeless browmantic who, instead of being on the search for love, is on the hunt for the perfect brow pencil.
Ahead of the campaign’s official release on Feb. 7, Dragun spoke to us about dating, products, her biggest beauty regrets, and more. Keep reading for a laugh.
