|Still haven’t mastered the art of looking comfortable in pictures….|
I mentioned on Twitter last night that I’m on a new mission to get myself capable in the art of fake lash application. There are very few make-up items I wouldn’t go without if pushed for time, as long as I have nicely framed eyes thanks to a great mascara, so I’ve always thought I’d be a lash addict, if only I could get the blimin’ things to work.
I’ve tried so many times to use false lashes, but I’ve always found them really difficult to work and I’ve never been able to get them firstly to stick, and secondly to look as natural as possible. Therefore, last night I took the bull by the horns and decided to not stop until I’d got them looking at least semi-normal. My determination paid off, and I got them to do what I wanted, so I thought I’d try again today.
Today didn’t go as well, as I didn’t get them to sit as close to the natural lash line as I managed to last night, but I’ve already got mascara on so I’m wondering if this might’ve been why. For all intents and purposes though, they look OK so I’m going to keep hammering away at them until I get them right.
Spurred on by my success last night I ordered a few packs of Ardell lashes and some Duo Eyelash glue which I understand to be one of the best. Hopefully this will be the start of my new love affair with false lashes!
The ones I’m wearing in the pictures are Eylure’s Naturalites Lengthening which were the least dramatic I could find at Boots. They’re still a bit OTT for me, so I’ve ordered some demi-lashes that sit on the outer part of your eyes, which I’m hoping will be more natural. I’ll update as I go but in the meantime, I’m happy that my stubborness paid off, and I’m now getting my lash on….
I have Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24HR in On and On Bronze on my eyelids.
