Is your head still reeling from that headline? We know, we were totally shocked, too, because why would you spend all that time perfectly winging out your eyeliner, then - gasp - leave your lashes bare? It seems almost sacrilege.

Makeup artist Romy Soleimani often skips mascara in her beauty looks, but we found this super thin cat-eye liner was especially noteworthy without long, black lashes. This model slayed during the Lela Rose SS16 show during New York Fashion Week, and she did it without a single coat of mascara.
Lela Rose SS16Romy lined the model's entire top and bottom lid with Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner ($34, Beauty.com), going up a bit at the ends to achieve a subtle cat eye.

"I think no mascara kind of keeps it a little more modern and minimal and fresh looking," Romy says. She says that she almost went for a tromp l'oeil, or optical illusion, with this look, which was inspired by the black outlines on some of designer Lela Rose's clothes.

What do you think? Will you toss your beloved mascaras in the trash and convert to a more modern makeup look, or do you refuse to step out of the house without lengthened lashes?
