Lashes have been a big thing for quite a few seasons now, lash bars have opened and there are many different options of lash extensions. Personally I prefer false lashes that come off easily at the end of the day , rather than the the high maintenance that comes with the more permanent extensions.
Being a lifetime vegetarian and animal fan, I don't really recommend Mink lashes anyway, as they are fur and are usually fabricated under cruel conditions. But everyone has to decide for themselves, I don't judge people wearing mink lashes, but I would personally not wear them. I wear lots and lots of mascara daily and for special occasions wear false lashes which are so much fun. I try and mix in ethical products in my makeup kit and I am always happy to find more professional quality products in this category.
On photo shoots and models false lashes are great and give so many options to change a look, perfect for red carpet looks or events they just enhance the eyes so beautifully. I often combine different styles, use lower lashes and upper lashes, or layer them. On my brides I love using individual lashes, which look super natural and pretty. They suit everyone and can be easily customized with different lengths.
The great Makeup Artist Helen Dowsley now offers a fabulous range of hand made & ethically sourced false lashes, exactly what I have been waiting for. Her range is just big enough to cover different styles, my beloved individual lashes and now even underlashes in different designs. I recently had the chance to try them, and they work a treat. You simply cut them in half and apply them in 2 steps. Under lashes create a dramatic eye opening effect, perfect if you want your eyes to look very big! With all her great industry experience she really manged to create a professional product that really reflects what women are looking for.
