Lashes are an important part of any eye make-up. Long luscious lashes can open up the eye and add definition, really finishing off an eye make-up look.
Curling your lashes before applying mascara helps to create the appearing of longer lashes. A lot of people’s lashes can grow quite straight and therefore even when mascara is applied to them, the lashes are still not that visible.
Mascara (waterproof for those weepy brides!) should be applied right to the root of the lashes. This makes the lashes appear thicker and enhances definition. Wiggle the mascara in the root of the lash and to the tip of the lashes in a zig-zag motion – repeat until happy! Concentrate on the outer corner lashes to really accentuate the shape.
False lashes are a popular choice for a lot of brides. If you’re after a more natural look I recommend applying some individual lashes. A few clusters added to the outer corners of your eye can really elongate the shape and make a huge difference without looking over the top and false. I can supply and apply these on your wedding day for just an extra £3.
If you are going for more of a statement eye, why not go for strip lashes? They come in an array of different designs from super natural to dramatic volume. If you’re not used to wearing false lashes, they can feel a bit strange and heavy on your lid at first, but you will soon get used to them! I can supply and apply strip lashes on your wedding day for just an extra £7. We can talk through what design you would like ahead of the day, and if I don’t already have them in my kit I can go out and purchase some specially for you. I carefully apply these using tweezers (and a steady hand), ensuring they are fitted right against the lash line so they look as natural as possible.
