Having long, lush lashes is something every girl dreams of, though most of us don’t have them naturally. When using false eyelashes, you can turn your makeup into anything; sultry, innocent, glam – just pick the right pair and you can totally transform your look.
While the natural look sans mascara appeared on the runway, some designers went in another direction with big eyelashes to really accentuate the eye. Alice + Olivia, Betsey Johnson and Vivienne Tam had models wearing false lashes with bold coloured makeup, while Gucci used false lashes top and bottom for a ’60s vibe.
Choosing lashes that suit your occasion is elementary to getting the right look. Natural look falsies are great for day time events or with natural looking makeup. Long false lashes open the eye and draw attention to it, but too long lashes can look overdone if that’s not the look you’re going for. Individual lashes also create a natural, wispy look for your eye.
If you love over-the-top lashes with feathers, jewels and colours, look no further than the Napoleon Perdis Lash Bar. These outrageous lashes will draw attention to your face and are perfect for special events to really dress up your outfit. When wearing lashes such as these, makeup doesn’t have to be overdone with a bronze, smokey or purple eyeshadow helping to complement the lashes.
Not too keen on false lashes? Get the false lash look minus the glue with Benefit’s ‘They’re Real!’ mascara. This mascara defines and lengthens lashes to accentuate the eye, without having to apply falsies. The more layers of mascara used, the bigger and better the lashes.
