Last Wednesday was undoubtedly a high point in political history (we still revel in joy and relief), but we don't want to point out the high notes that Inauguration Day also hit in the beauty and fashion categories. Lady Gaga wore a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture outfit, youth poet Amanda Gorman wore a double-breasted Prada Natté Toile coat in the most dreamy shade of yellow, and Christopher John Roger's coat and dress by Vice President Kamala Harris inspired us to wear purple (and only purple ) for the rest of the year. Oh, and we definitely can't forget former first lady Michelle Obama, whose signature curls, divine smoky eye, and monochromatic maroon had a permanent place in our saved folder. Obama's stunning Inauguration Day beauty look is also super achievable, mask-friendly, and topped off with one of our all-time favorite mascaras – Glossier & # 39; s Lash Slick ($ 16). Surprised? Were not.
If you've followed me and my beauty editor Courtney Higgs here on Who What Wear, you already know that Glossier's famous mascara is our all-time favorite stick ever to hit the market. (The definition! The length! That flutter!) When Obama's longtime makeup artist Carl Ray shared his step-by-step process Cubit On Thursday our obsession was confirmed by the fact that Lash Slick starred in Obama's gorgeous gaze. Combining the mascara with a luscious set of falsies (from Lilly Lashes if you're curious), neutral shade, and chocolate shimmer, Ray created a gorgeous eye-centered makeup look that just goes to show that face masks don't have to put cramp in our beauty style .
