I have gotten quite a number of people asking about the Lily Cole ad for Accessorize I posted so here is me trying to dupe the look (minus the crazy big hair of course *lol*)
I have always been dying to try lash extension and thanks to Michelle, I finally got my hands on Ardell DuraLash Naturals Extension Kit. This was my first time doing lash extension and all I can say is boy does it take practice and lots and lots of patience!
Since I have Asian lashes, I chose the Short Lash in Black. The pack comes with 56 knotted individual lashes that are slightly longer than my natural lashes. Following the instructions on the pack, I picked up a cluster of hair with my favorite Tweezerman tweezers, dipped it in the Ardell LashTite Individual Lash Adhesive and randomly placed it on top of my natural lashes and near the roots. I started from the middle of my eye and worked my way outwards. After fiddling around for almost 15 minutes, I finally got 5 clusters on each eye. When I was done, I was pretty happy with the result – it was natural yet you could definitely tell my lashes got thicker and longer.
Here is the requested tutorial on the Max Factor ad inspired FOTD that I did.
Saw this Max Factor ad at Boots and I *loved* it so much I decided to do a dupe.
I have always loved the 60s mod look. Graphic black and white shadow paired with lots of lashes is simply hot! And so here is me trying to do a similar look but with a twist. Instead of stark black and white, I used softer colors and of course, lots and lots of lashes.
I have done an entry on falsies in the past but a lot of people have been asking about them so here’s a tutorial with pictures. I hope this helps!
