Huge post about lashes! I promised it to you a while ago and finally it’s here. Took me blood, sweat and tears but I finally finished it. These are a few of my lashes, mostly the more natural looking ones, but I added one of the more dramatic ones as well. My apologies, not all of the pictures are 100% sharp but you will get the idea.
These are my natural lashes without mascara. They’re quite short unfortunately so false lashes are a great alternative for me.
These are my lashes with my favourite mascara, the falsies volum’ express by Maybelinne. Makes a huge difference doesn’t it? I always curl my lashes with a lash curler which is a very important step. First you curl your lashes, grab them and squeeze several times, then apply your mascara.
Andrea Modlash in 53, I received these from AII Beauty. I really like them, they look very natural and suit my eyes. Excuse my sloppy application, the inside corner of the lash band isn’t close enough to my lashes (happens to me a lot) but it’s fixed by applying eyeliner most of the time. The pictures really tend to magnify everything unfortunately. Also, in none of the pictures I’m wearing eyeshadow because this way you can see the lashes better!
Andrea Accents 301 from AII Beauty. These are great lashes too and again not close enough to my lash line (sorry!) which shows up very clearly in close-up but not so much with a full make-up look on.. They just give a little added accent to the corner of your eyes, a little flutter of lashes as it were. I like wearing them a lot and they’re a lot easier to apply than a full strip of lashes and they look great.
These and the next Revlon lashes I received from Madame Madeline. They’re very lightweight you can hardly feel them there. They look very natural and there are 2 pairs in one pack which is great. Thumbs up for these, I really like them.
Revlon short natural. These are criss-cross lashes which I didn’t see until I received them, “that’s not going to look very natural” was my first thought but they do look nice! However the lash strip itself is a very hard band, you can really feel these sitting on your eyes which isn’t comfortable. Look great but I have trouble wearing them unfortunately.
Andrea Modlash 82 received from AII Beauty. I’m so happy with these pictures, especially the top one. These are quite dense and definitely for evening or a night out. I find wearing really dramatic lashes harder as I have hooded eyelids but these are very wearable especially teamed up with a dramatic eye make-up. I’m definitely a fan of these!
These are the only individual lashes out of my entire list. Andrea Permalash flair combo black. I think they need specific glue for individual lashes though I applied them with my regular DUO lash adhesive which worked great as well. I applied seven knots of lashes, four of the shortest and 3 of the medium sized lashes. I still have to really practice with these because I don’t think I applied them that good. They look natural but I prefer strip lashes like the 53s for application. I didn’t cover them with mascara which you definitely should, it will attach your own lashes to the false ones and it will just make it look a lot better but I didn’t want to ruin these just for picture purpose.
