Yves Saint Laurent’s new ‘Volume Effet Faux Cils’ Baby Doll Mascara may be girly, but there’s nothing ‘little’ about it. On one side, thick, spaced bristles coat lashes and create volume; on the other, fine, close bristles hit even the tiniest lashes to create a lush fringe. The effect: a wide-open look that’s seductive and stunning. To promote the mascara’s launch, the brand created this video starring model, actress and all-around It Girl Cara Delevingne.

Naughty and nice: The mascara comes in four playfully named shades: Fetish Black, Indiscreet Purple, Audacious Blue and Wheedler Brown.

Hey, baby: To get Cara’s dolled-up look, complement your Baby Doll Mascara with Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘City Drive – Classy’ Eyeshadow Palette, ‘Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils’ Bold Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen and ‘Rouge Volupté Shine – Rose in Tension’ Lipstick (a Nordstrom exclusive).

Step-by-step instructions from the video below:
1. Begin with one coat of Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat.
2. Apply two coats of ‘Cheeky Chops’ Nail Lacquer.
3. Use a dotting tool (or ball point pen) to create large dots at random with ‘Keks’ Nail Lacquer.
4. Layer on smaller dots in ‘Primrose Hill Picnic’ Nail Lacquer with the other end of your dotting tool (or something with a finer point, like a toothpick).
5. Let dry 5 to 10 minutes, and apply Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat to finish.

Told you it was easy. Now, go get your artsy on with the ‘Pop Art Collection’ by butter LONDON. Lichtenstein would be proud.
