Lizzo’s “BITCH, I’m back” exclamation was certainly a memorable moment at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, during which the “Truth Hurts” singer presented the Best New Artist award to her friend and fellow Houstonian Megan Thee Stallion. But so was Lizzo’s glam, which probably helped her confidently give the audience its “bleep moment.” Lizzo’s lashes especially made a statement, and now her makeup artist, Alexx Mayo, is revealing how you can get Grammy-worthy lashes too.
“I wanted to contrast the softness of the Balmain gown with a striking smokey feline shape and kissable soft lips and a statement lash,” said Mayo, explaining the inspiration for Lizzo’s beauty look, in press materials.
The singer who swept the 2020 Grammys wore two Balmain dresses, a mint green asymmetrical hem one and a pearlized lilac gown, to this year’s awards ceremony. She accessorized with Bulgari diamond jewelry.
Mayo created Lizzo’s statement lashes using KISS Lash Couture products. He applied the new KISS Lash Couture Matte Black Collection faux mink strip lashes to Lizzo’s lids using the KISS Lash Couture Strip Lash Adhesive, which provides a long-lasting yet gentle hold and contains biotin and blueberry extract. These strip lashes are beloved for their dramatic yet sophisticated 3D volume, high-quality matte hair fibers, premium finish, soft and lightweight feel, full and dense appearance, and diffused matte finish that blends seamlessly with real lashes.
“The KISS Matte Black lashes helped me achieve maximum glam and depth around her lashes,” Mayo said.
Here’s how to get the look at home, including how to size your faux lashes, for your next big event or Zoom:
1. First, check the fit. Lay the lash on top of your natural lash and trim if needed.
2. Next, apply the KISS Lash Couture Strip Lash Adhesive in Clear to the lash band. Wait 30 seconds for the adhesive to become slightly clear and tacky.
3. Lastly, apply the KISS Matte Black Lashes in Matte Sheer along the natural lash line. Make sure to hold, allowing the Lash Adhesive to dry completely.
The KISS Lash Couture Matte Black Collection is available for $7.99 at KISSusa.com, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Ulta. The KISS Lash Couture Strip Lash Adhesive is available for $5.99 at KISSusa.com, Target, and Ulta.
