Bold, colorful eyelashes have been popping up everywhere this spring, from Instagram to the runways of Paris Fashion Week.
The sun is starting to come out, and bright colors are in.
After a bleak year spent indoors, 2021 is inspiring us all to finally shed our sweatpants and don our spring colors again. False eyelashes can give us a sense of confidence, and tie any makeup look together, so why should they be an exception to the colorful fun?
Where Did this Trend Come From?
So where did this colorful eyelash trend come from, and how long is it here to stay?
Colorful lashes have long been used as part of stage makeup, but they didn’t really come into mainstream use until 2017 when a trend began of lash artists weaving colorful eyelashes throughout black sets in order to accentuate their client’s eye colors.
But it wasn’t until earlier this year that colorful full sets came into fashion. At the beginning of February, makeup artist Lauren B. Brown went viral for posting a picture of her rainbow falsies on Twitter. When makeup enthusiasts began to emulate Brown’s look, colorful full sets of eyelashes quickly snowballed into one of this season’s biggest trends.
As with any trend, who knows how long colorful eyelashes will stay in style. We can safely say, however, that we will probably see people rocking them throughout 2021 and maybe beyond.

Each tray of lashes comes with 6 rows of individual lashes with lengths ranging from 9mm-13mm. All of our eyelashes come in C, CC, and D curl options.
Cutest Ways to Style Them
The great thing about colorful eyelashes is that the styling possibilities are endless. Tell your clients to create a monochromatic set with matching lipstick and eyeshadow or fashion a full rainbow set like Brown did and pair them with a neutral lip color.
Colorful eyelashes can also enhance your eye color and make it pop. In order to find the complementary color of eyelashes for your eyes, choose the color opposite your eye color on the color wheel. For example, blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel, so you could choose orange to compliment blue eyes.
If your clients aren’t quite ready to commit to a full-color set, they can add a few green or purple lashes to their standard black extensions for a fun pop of color.
This trend is all about creativity, so let your customers know that it’s okay to experiment!
