I like to think I’m somewhere in the middle when it comes to being high maintenance about my appearance. I definitely care, I wear makeup pretty much everyday and I spent money on getting my brows, hair and nails done. But, I feel like I’m fairly relaxed because I don’t spend hours and hours on it and I don’t want to look like I’ve just walked off Love Island. Basically, I unashamedly love beauty and I find it really fun to experiment with makeup and beauty trends. Here are my four rules for getting perfect lashes and brows because sometimes that’s all that makes you happy sometimes and that’s OK.
I have a love/hate relationship with false lashes. I love wearing them and how they look but I hate putting them on and I don’t think I’m ready to commit to full on lash extensions yet.
Does anyone else get the lash fear? You’ve done all your make-up and you need to put your lashes on but the fear sets in. What if they don’t go well? Your lashes end up all sticky and mascara just doesn’t go on right afterwards. Then, will you have to take off all of your make up and start again? It won’t look right. The drama continues. Here are 5 tips to make sure that you beat lash fear and look fierce instead!
False eyelashes are something I’m wary of now, they can make you look too done up, fake and like you’ve just walked off the set of TOWIE circa 2011. But, when I heard about Kiss lashes, that are supposed to feel and look like natural lashes, I thought I’d give them a go. These are from the Featherlight collection and I tried out ‘Iconic’ the other night when I went out in Manchester. The ‘Iconic’ versions aren’t very thick and they don’t have a thick band that looks too much next to your actual lash line. I always have to trim my lashes down so I cut nearly a cm off the long ends of them to make them fit. I was really surprised by how soft and comfortable they were, they looked really, really natural and I was able to apply a small amount of mascara to make them blend into my actual eyelashes really easily. Normally, with false lashes mascara doesn’t go on very well and ends up looking clumpy but these were really lovely. So all in all, I was really happy with these lashes and I’d definitely recommend them to anyone who feels like they need something extra but they don’t want to go for the full on celebrity fake eyelashes look. They looked really soft and natural. They’re an American brand and are mostly stocked in Walmarts and that sort of thing but they are available in Boots over here priced at just under £5, which is also a bargain!
