If you’ve seen To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, you know that the breakout stars of the Netflix movie were Lana Condor and her costar, Lana Condor’s eyelashes. We were so enamored of them, in fact, that we reached out to the makeup-department head to learn her lash secrets. Now that Condor is starring in the new Syfy series Deadly Class, it seems her character, Saya Kuroki, shares the same fondness for fluttery lashes as her TATBILB character, Lara Jean Covey. And if Condor gets her way, that will be true of every role she ever plays.
“I have to have eyelashes. That is an ego thing of mine, but it’s a deal breaker,” Condor recently told Refinery29, explaining that she refuses to take a role that requires wearing her eyes au naturel. “Everyone on everything I’ve worked on knows that. I have to have extensions, or strips, or individuals. I love eyelashes so much.”
She actually wore two out of three of those in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Makeup artist Sharon Toohey told Allure that Condor wore extensions and individual lash lashes — specifically from the M.A.C. 30 Lash set. And from the looks of it, Darci Jackson, the makeup-department head on Deadly Class, definitely got the memo.
When Condor returns to the role of Lara Jean Covey for the TATBILB sequel, rumored to be called P.S. I Still Love You, lashes won’t be the only kind of extensions she’ll be wearing. “I’m probably going to have to wear extensions because her hair is such a big part of her character,” she told Refinery29, referring to how he had to cut off most of her hair for Deadly Class. “She just had such long hair in the first movie that I think we have to keep it long.”
So while the length of the hair on Condor’s head may be negotiable, one thing is for sure: Her lashes will always look enviably long.
