PREDICTIONS: 1964 - AVEDON




eyes open on what's AHEAD


eyes - clear, unblinking - looking into the new year with interest and a hint of humor, ready to take on what's coming - and like it! the wide-open eye, set off by a thick maze of lashes and a delicate tint of lavender - smoky lavender, a good hint at what's ahead at revlon. lashes, dipped in fabulash, also by revlon.
