A flutter of the eyelashes can get a girl everywhere, so it is important to keep our lashes looking luscious. False eyelashes are the perfect tool for transforming any make-up look and accentuating eyes. Like us girls, no two pairs are the same, from the multicoloured, inch long – perhaps best kept for Halloween – to the feline flicked. Here are a few tips and tricks to creating the perfect lash look.
First things first, select the right style. Three things which must be kept in mind to ensure the perfect style is chosen; the eye, the event and the entire look.
Choose a lash to compliment your eye size and shape. Smaller eyes will be overshadowed by extremely long eyelashes, while short and natural styles will become lost and futile. If applied to large, wide eyes. Longer strips can be trimmed to size – always snip from the outside and measure against your natural lash line.
Drag-queen styles can look amazing for a wild night on the town, not so much for lunch with the grandparents. To lash or not to lash, that is the question. Always consider whether the falsies are a necessity for the occasion. Sometimes they are the crossing of the fine line between sophistication and The Only Way Is Essex.
THE ENTIRE LOOK:
An important guideline in the world of make-up is eyes or lips. If you’re desperate to show off your new scarlet red lipstick, then thick, voluptuous eyelashes should be avoided. The look we are going for is flirty and feminine, not Barbie goes face-painting.
