Eyelash Tricks

I admit it, I have an eyelash obsession.  Like to the point that when I was thirteen or fourteen I would split up the individual flares from Ardell into even littler sections of one or two lashes and apply them every day before school (kind of like now days version of eyelash extensions, but with temporary glue.) Obviously, that was a little crazy of me, so it’s a good thing I became a makeup artist! At least I can kind of justify the hours spent on that!

After years of doing eyelash extensions and having them myself, I had to part ways with those wonderful little things and start wearing strip eyelashes.

Thank goodness for strip lashes, they make a huge difference on me! The only problem is with my eye shape, most styles of lashes make me feel like the inner corners of my eyes are being tortured.  So I came up with a solution (well, maybe someone else has thought of this too but they didn’t share the wealth with me!)

eyelash_tricksIf you position the strip out a little bit further than normal it won’t feel like it’s poking you (if this doesn’t happen to you, then yay!) And then you can add a few flare lashes to the inner or outer corners to give a comfortable and tapered look.

The strip lashes are from House of Lashes and the style is Siren. For the inner flare’s I used these adorable mini’s. I frequently use shorts as well for this, especially if you’re using a longer length strip lash.

For the rest of the products used for this look reference my previous post.

I hope this is useful!

Soft eyes and bold lips

berry_red_lip_webI love this look so much! Soft eyes and luscious lovely lips.

Complexion: Lancome Teint Miracle foundation, Laura Mercier concealer #2, Shading cream contour, Bobbi Brown bronzer in Elvis Duran, Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush

Eyes: Urban Decay shadow base , MAC eyeshadow in Wedge and Vanilla, Stila liquid eyeliner, Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes mascara , Tarte nude eyeliner, Lashes Siren from House of Lashes and Ardell mini’s.

Lips: Urban Decay lip liner in Venom , Lancome lipstick Rouge in Love #181, Bobbi Brown Crystal gloss

Hair: I worked a nickle size amount of Kerastase Nectar Thermique through all of her hair (I got this as a gift from a client and I love it.) Then I curled her hair with my GHD straightener spraying each section with Oribe Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray.  *I know some of these products are kind of pricey so for less expensive options try Biosilk and Beyond the Zone Thermal Protect Spray.

She’s beautiful in the before ↓ and in the after! Just more colorful 😀before_after_red_webXoxo
