By now you have got in all probability, like me, watched To All The Boys I’ve Liked Earlier than on Netflix about 5 occasions. Launched simply this previous Friday, it is already reached Web-breaking ranges as a result of the truth that it is an achingly-sweet, humorous, and unproblematic teen rom-com that stars an Asian-American teen as its main girl. Tons to unpack right here. Based mostly on the novel by Jenny Han, the movie facilities round Lara Jean, a typical boy-crazy but additionally boy-wary 16-year-old whose love letters to her previous secret loves have unintentionally been despatched to all of them. Panic ensues…but additionally an extremely candy romance together with her faculty’s hottest hot-boi, Peter Kavinsky, who has in some way impressed a number of grownup girls to lust after 22-year-old actor Noah Centineo or a minimum of replicate fondly again on their very own adolescences and their very own Peter Kavinskys.
Look, it is only a actually good, candy, and life-affirming film and it is best to watch it. It is on Netflix, it is free, what have you ever obtained to lose?
Anyway, it solely took the primary viewing for me to grow to be fixated on protagonist Lara Jean’s epically dreamy lashes. I wagered that they had been false lash strips at first, however upon subsequent viewings, after seeing them from totally different angles, I doubted myself. They may very well be extensions, however I’ve by no means seen lash extensions so… full and voluminous. They had been multidimensional. So I am to only imagine that this overachieving, love letter-writing bookworm simply occurs to have probably the most bomb lashes within the faculty — even higher than imply widespread lady and nemesis, Gen? (Everybody is aware of that bomb lashes are imply widespread ladies’ factor.)
I am not one to characterize who and who would not put on lash strips, however on Lara Jean, together with her sweet-natured however no-bullshit demeanor (executed with aplomb by Lana Condor), these lashes gave some edge to what would possibly in any other case have been your run-of-the-mill ingenue, who simply has stuff occur to them. I tracked down the movie’s make-up division head Shanon Toohey to inquire what this complete lash state of affairs was about. She confirmed that Condor was certainly sporting lash extensions, however “typically particular person lashes had been added in for sure scenes.”
These particular person lashes particularly had been from M.A.C.’s 30 Lash set, she mentions, which has three totally different lengths, so you may get artistic with dimension. You understand, so possibly use the shorter ones for a research sesh, and escape these long-daddies for the ski journey.
In case your lash price range is extra on the weekly allowance degree, nonetheless, Ardell additionally presents good realistic-looking particular person lashes for simply $5.
I could not ever be capable of relive my youth and I’d by no means wish to as a result of it was means much less thrilling than this film (though I, too, was a goody-two-shoes and no scorching lacrosse boys ever made out with me in any scorching tubs goddamnit), however I can level-up my lashes to Lara Jean ranges of rom-com-heroine excellence.
In spite of everything, bomb lashes are ageless.
