Jacqueline Fernandez, former Miss Sri Lanka, started her Bollywood career 10 years ago, and has managed to make a name for herself in India. This lashes are inspired by the actress, who Huda gushed over, “Jacqueline is a classic beauty, super glamorous but also so natural & we wanted to bring this to life in these lashes,”
Over the years, the makeup guru has released several sets of fake lashes carrying different names; however, it seems like the Jacqueline lash is the first to have its namesake involved in the design. These lashes are made of synthetic fibers, to give a fluffy and dramatic effect. They are meant to look both glamorous and natural, just like the Bollywood star.
These lashes are part of the brand’s ‘Next Generation Lash Collection,’ which is a series of collaborations to honor a new generation of inspirational women.
Huda chose the actress to be her first muse, and she explained the reason behind that choice, saying “When we started our lash collaboration journey for our next generation lash collection, choosing inspirational women wasn’t hard – we knew so many incredible women, and Bollywood badass Jacqueline Fernandez was an instant match. Not only is Jacqueline one of Bollywood’s biggest actresses, but she’s also a humanitarian and an absolute sweetheart. Her unique style, elegance, and charm were the ultimate inspo to develop the evolution of the classic lash.”
The Bahrain-raised actress also commented on the team-up, saying, “When Huda and I were discussing the type of lash, we wanted something that was Bollywood-ish – glamourous, dreamy, beautiful, and a little bit fantasy – but also wearable, and she combined the two perfectly,” Jacqueline says. “This design came along, and it was absolutely perfect: They’re long, luscious and feminine, but they’re not heavy or too much. Ever since I tried them on, they just felt right. I don’t know how Huda managed to do that, but she did it.”
We can’t wait to see who the next Huda Muse is!
