As I’m a wedding makeup artist in Cheshire during my spare time, you can possibly imagine how ridiculously big my makeup kit is. I have a huuuuuuuge one on wheels that I bring with me for all my client jobs, which is mostly weddings. I then also have a trusty black box with all my lipsticks and lashes, what I like to call my finishing touches box!
I’ve seen a growing interest over the last year or so with lashes, and more so with older ladies. They also seem dubious and perhaps a little nervous about the thought of having lashes applied, yet ever so eager to try them out.
As a ‘professional’, I really care about providing them with lashes they are truly happy with and suit their face shape and eye shape, without frightening them….
So I thought it would be nice to put a little post together sharing my favourite false lashes. Firstly, I use False Eyelashes website to purchase the majority of my lashes, mainly because I find them a one-stop place to go for all your top brands, from Ardell to Eylure, and your more premium mores, such as Tatti and House of Lashes. In particular though, my two favourites are indeed Ardell and Eylure, and have been ever since I discovered both brands a few years ago.
The below photo shows me wearing a very subtle pair for work, which are the Eylure Naturals in No.15. I usually show the Eylure Naturals to my older clientele who are little worried about looking ‘too overdone’ or ‘scary’. However, when they are going to a wedding (or are the Bride/Mother of the Bride themselves), I often encourage a stronger lash.
And this is where I’ve fallen in love with Ardell Demi Wispies!
The Ardell Demi Wispies Mulipack of 4 which is shown in the below photo and linked out to is a life saver for me when doing makeup professionally. Because the actual lashes are wispier, and not the usual smooth tapered rounded lash, they resemble the natural persons lash much more. However, these are longer, slightly thicker and of course tinted black, with the aim to enhance and add depth to your eyes.
This style in particular boast a tapered lash style with medium volume and length – the perfect fluttery lash look without being too heavy. The varied lash lengths create the wispy looking finish that blends seamlessly with your natural lashes for an effortless finish.
I personally love to style them up on my clients who love a heavy makeup look with a bold smokey eye.For those who prefer a more natural, flirty and subtle look, I simply dust the eyelid with a neutral brown.
