Every celeb in the spotlight knows that eyelash extensions are THE must-have beauty accessory and it appears that even London girls about town are donning strip eyelash extensions on an average day for a bit of extra POP! Who needs a special occasion?!

If we look back to the style icons of the past, they can all be remembered for their seductive long lashes. Elizabeth Taylor’s thick black lashes framed her distinctive deep violet eyes; Audrey Hepburn coyly batted hers in Breakfast at Tiffany‘s and Sophia Loren’s sultry flutter mesmerized a generation.

It would appear the stars of 2012 are no different as eyelash trends are proving as popular as ever. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga are renowned for their oversized and outrageous colorful eyelash extensions, taking the summer colour-blocking trend to a new level. Cheryl Cole, Eva Longoria, and J.Lo tend to go for statement eyes that are perfectly defined and the gorgeous Megan Fox appears to be a fan of individually applied eyelash extensions.
