If you love glam, then chances are you’re a fan of Lifetime’s beauty competition series “American Beauty Star.” We know that we are (and not just because Zenni was an official sponsor this past season)! Hosted by supermodel Ashley Graham, the series follows a group of hair and makeup artists as they compete in a series of challenges to show off their skills and be crowned the best of the best. Australian Lucy Garland came out on top as the winner of Season 2 of the series. Along with taking home the crown as “American Beauty Star,” Lucy also won the opportunity to curate a collection of her favorite Zenni eyewear. Colorful and eclectic, it’s aptly named “Don’t Hold Back.” Much like Lucy’s own aesthetic, it’s full of sass, style, and color.
Her 170K YouTube subscribers have fallen in love with her bold, artistic makeup looks. Lucy prides herself on doing everything from head to toe – hair, makeup, costume design, everything.
“‘Don’t Hold Back’ is basically my mantra when it comes to my work. For me it’s so important to always go above and beyond, and never hold back no matter what.”
Lucy’s hand-picked Zenni collection features bright pops of color, geometric shapes, and plenty of fashion-forward style. From vintage-inspired white cat-eyes, to whimsical red heart-shaped sunglasses, and a modern take on the classic tortoiseshell browline with tinted lenses, her picks will leave you wanting to update your eyewear wardrobe ASAP. And if there’s one thing that her collection shows, it’s that eyewear can be seriously fun!
