REPOST // Uncovering the truth about false eyelashes and why they shouldn’t be dismissed

I am a big believer in the lash.  Love ’em or hate ’em there is no denying that false eyelashes dramatically change the look and feel of any makeup design.  There are a lot of misconceptions about false eyelashes and the name doesn’t help!  Often these little beauties are referred to as fake, false or falsies giving us an assumption that we will look fake or false wearing.  This is simply not true.  I for one champion this misunderstood tool – as that is exactly what it is.  When matched and applied well false eyelashes enhance and become as important as foundation is to a makeup look.  The key is research.  When starting on your false eyelashe journey go for a light band with feathering lashes and practise, practise, practise!!

I regularly use false eyelashes with my clients.  Brides especially love the added effect this brings to their wedding makeup.  They also show up amazingly well in photographs and are great for all those ‘sighing’ in love looks to the camera! x
