As expected, Kim Kardashian West ladled up some major beauty inspiration at last night's Met Gala,В from her sleek, Princess Jasmine-esqueВ hairstyle to her trademark contour (courtesy of her KKW line, of course). But what people really can't stop talking about are those lashes. More specifically, where do they hail from and how much will they cost us?В
Luckily, Kim's longtime right-hand makeup man, Mario Dedivanovic, has answers. Due to apparent popular demand (we're guessing in the form of incessant DMs and comments), he quelled our curiosityВ on Instagram earlier today with the ultimate antidote to our personal sparse-lash woes:В Lilly Lashes.
"Everyone is asking about the lashes! They areВ @LillyLashesВ in style 'Goddess,'" he confirmed in the post.
But of course, that didn't quite satisfy our craving for every single detail about the eye look, so we looked to a statement he gave last night describing more of his strategy and application process. "For glam, I focused on a dramatic eye and a subtle bronzed face. I started with the shade 'Albanian' from the KKW x Mario Eyeshadow Palette ($45) and blended into the crease. To give an intense smokey liner I used a smudge brush to blend the KKW x Argenis CrГЁme Color Stick in Dramatico ($18) along the lash line and outer corners of the eyelids. For added drama, I applied false lashes." And there you have it.
But wait-due to the over-the-top outpouring of curiosity in the Goddess lashes specifically, Lilly Lashes is currently offering 15% off the set in question using the code METGALA. But here's the catch. According to the website, there are only 10 left, so we recommend acting fast. However, if the site does sell out before you can grab your credit card, we're also including six more of Team Byrdie's favorite false lashes below as backup.
