Need False Eye Lash Application Advice?

Monday, May 23, 2011

Having issues with applying lashes? Here is some advice I gave someone on @sephora FB page
An easy way to apply lashes is lots or practice, patience and tweezers. Before you apply you have to size the lashes against your eyes to make sure they fit and if they need a bit of cutting then cut on the ends (outer corners). Take your lashes and apply the glue on the band of the lashes and add a little bit extra on the corners. That helps with any lifting of the lashes. Once glue is on then let dry for about 30 seconds or so till it get's tacky you can apply w/ your fingers or tweezers. I like to apply outer corners first or you can also apply starting in the middle of your eye and then pressing gently right above your natural lashes. Once you have applied and happy with the placement then you're done and Congrats! Hopefully that helps!!

Here are some lashes I would recommend and lash glues.

Ardell Lashes $2.99 and up

Revlon Fantasy Lengths False Eyelashes
Revlon Lashes $5.49 and up

Natural Lash Kit
ELF Lashes $1 and up

Duo Lash Glue $ 4 and up
Kiss Eyelash Glue $4 and up
Lashgrip Glue $3 and up

Makeup Forever New Aqua Liners

Wednesday, May 11, 2011


I was contact by Makeup Forever which is one of my fav lines with the opportunity to try they're new line of Aqua Liners waterproof liquid liner available in 15 colors. I was so excited since I love liquid liner and have been using it for (our secret) 20 years now. They were kind enough to send me 3 liners in 9 Iridescent Fuchsia, 10 Iridescent Red, and 4 Diamond Multicolor Black.

Now when they said waterproof they meant it! Let me tell you that I wore these on my hand for 7 hours and washed my hands many times without them budging (hubby was even impressed). Once I used some hand sanitizer (alcohol based of course) then it rubbed off. The colors are vibrant and the liner is easy to apply with a firm tip applicator, and at $23 available at Sephora and Makeup Forever Boutique & Sephora Soho Studio. I would rate these a A+. Below are swatches of the 3 liner and self portrait of myself with 9 Iridescent Fuchsia.

Top to bottom: 4 Diamond Multicolor Black,
9 Iridescent Fuchsia, and 10 Iridescent Red
