I was feeling a little ‘seasonal’ (the mornings have been very overcast) and decided to play with ‘muted’ colors for the day…
You guys remember the twins…
I wanted to do something a little dramatic for the Alazakia Hat Installation (which I worked) for LA Fashion week. When I’m working, my makeup is typically minimal and functional. But this time, I decided to go all out, lashes and all:
I decided to keep a pair of the feathered lashes that I hauled during my last beauty supply run. They’re store brand lashes… and only about 2 dollars a pair. So I really wanted to know if they performed as well as their higher end (Make Up For Ever) counterpart:
They are VERY light. I love that, because there’s nothing more uncomfortable than heavy lashes. Sometimes, companies get so caught up in making the lashes fabulous, that they don’t account for the fact that people have to actually WEAR them (I’m looking at you Illamasqua). But these wear with only slight discomfort, which I’m sure will be a consolation for the model who eventually has to wear a pair for me.
My right eye and left eye photograph differently. I have no idea why. They appear to be symmetrical… but hey, I might be wrong. The left lashes flipped ‘up’ a bit more in the photo for me, which I liked. On the entire face, both lashes looked about the same:
I kept on the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, and just added MAC Smolder Eyeliner, NARS Blush in Luster, and Make Up For Ever’s lip pencil in 4C (lined and filled on the lips)
I love these lashes. I’m sure that I’ll go back for more. They’re inexpensive, they wear well, and look adorable to boot.
