I love a good set of eyelashes. But I have to be honest, I haven’t always been a fan of strip lashes.They were once reseverved for dramatic makeup looks, which isn’t really me. These days there are plenty of every-day type lashes that are comfortable to wear and don’t peel mid way through your day. Best of all, no one can tell. Well unless you want them to.
Eylure lashes are a favourite of mine. The main reason for this is quality but price is a close second. If you look after them you can wear them again and again. I have been trying out their new collection over the past few months.
The Theatricality Lady Gaga inspired episode of Glee Season 2 was one of my favourites. I loved, well, the theatricality of it! The costumes and make-up were fantastic. No matter what I watch I’m always looking at an actors make-up, not usually a conscious thing, comes with the job.
But when I saw Quinn Fabray (Dianna Argon) step out with full on pink lashes I actually paused the tv to get a close look.
Immediately it occurred to me that I must get my hands on those lashes. As a make-up artist there is often a need for theatrical pieces in your bag.
The lashes in question are by Frends and are in number 4135. The artist brushed some Covergirl Lashblast through the pink to tone them down a little.
The lashes looked so great on the Show but I have to wonder if they drove her mad during filming. Ah the joys of show biz!
