Friday night was scheduled for a much-needed catch up of dinner and drinks with the girls. I can’t tell you how much I look forward to these evenings, a chance to get dressed up and actually eat my dinner without so much as a ‘muuuuuummmmmm’ (must say in a winging voice for full effect) disturbing me!
Seen as though I am losing my eyelashes and eyebrows and almost all hair from places I don’t actually want to lose it I decided that I would try out some false lashes (just for the night). My beautiful friend and make up artist Barbara Mordini has just released her own line of lashes and there are lashes to suit everybody! I have always loved false eyelashes, even when I was 18 and would stick them on myself (albeit half crooked) or when I could convince one of my friends mothers to stick them on for me.
My lashes for Friday
Barbara has ‘natural beauty’ lashes,’girls night out’ lashes and for the more daring ‘all that glitters’ lashes, of course I went with the natural lashes and declined when she offered to glue on 2 sets for maximum impact (I did actually want to see out of my eyes after all). These eyelashes were incredible, not only were they comfortable to wear, they stayed on for 8 hours without so much as one lash lifting from its glued on root… Which brings me to my next point… the glue is amazing! I could have worn the second pair without a problem (which I am now regretting not doing) because I really couldn’t even feel them on me.
A sample of some of the lashes that are on offer from BM studio lashes.
For all the eyelash lovers out there I cannot recommend these lashes enough, and they also come in brown which I ABSOLUTELY LOVED and to top it off Barbara can help you chose the lashes based on the look you are trying to achieve and give you all the tips and tricks to ensure a successful application.
Because I love when my StyleCrush readers get the chance to experience great finds, Barbara and I are giving away 2 pairs of eyelashes to one lucky reader! All you need to do is like Barbara Mordini’s Facebook page here and leave a comment here on my blog with your name and email address. Winner will be drawn on the 15 March 2014 and will need to pick up their lashes at their leisure from Barbara’s studio in Mount Lawley where Barbara will be on hand to give you all the information you need on perfect looking lashes. Good Luck!
