Lunching With Claire Danes, and Her Eyelashes
The actress is the newest face of Latisse.
Thursday’s luncheon at the London Hotel in NYC had me very skeptical. I was there to meet the beautiful Claire Danes to discuss the first ever FDA-approved eyelash-lengthening product, Latisse.
Rumors of iris-discoloration and sudden darkness under the eyes had me wondering why Claire would agree to the possibility of a frightening outcome just to attain some lengthier lashes.
Then she entered the room, batting those big eyes and I started to cave into the idea a bit. Actually her lashes arrived five minutes before she did.
Said Claire of her new stint as Latisse spokes model: “I’d become aware of the product and was curious so I met my doctor. And it has been amazing! It happens in stages so I had to be patient. Then they started to become fuller and darker. I was amazed.”
Claire’s lashes, before and after Latisse.
Claire said she did experience some redness around her eyes at first but it quickly faded and now she couldn’t be happier. “It looks like I’m wearing make-up first thing in the morning,” she said.
Even her husband, Hugh Dancy, who she claims prefers her look most when she’s dressed down, sans make-up enjoys her new mile-long eyelashes. “He likes them a lot,” she added. “Butterfly kisses are better.”
Claire makes a convincing case. Will eyelash lengthening be the newest fad in beauty? Only time will tell.
