Sporting my well worn & well loved lashes from eldorafalseeyelashes
I’ve taken ‘H104’ (full natural strip) and glued half of ‘H114’ (slightly fuller strip) on the outer edge.
Creating the perfect full and winged out strip, customised to my liking!
I used Duo glue to fix these together.
Sometimes all you need is a simple winged out eyeliner and a great pair of lashes!
I snapped a quick shot of my eye on my mobile to show you the lashes I’m sporting today.
These lashes are by eldora. They are the H114 full strip-lash set, but I cut them in the centre and placed the smallest section on the outer half of my eyelids.
I absolutely love a winged liner and matching winged-out lashes!!
I used maybelline gel liner in brown to line my top lid.
House Of Lashes have landed on the ShowMe MakeUp desk this morning!
These are the new ‘Iconic’ lashes, and a set of bottom lashes to go with them.
I can’t wait to use these in a tutorial.
I don’t usually like thick banded lashes, but I’ve heard great reviews on these, so I will give them a go and let you know how I get on.
When using strip lashes with a thick band, warm them up with a hair dryer and then bend into a ‘C’ shape while they cool down.
The warmth from the hairdryer warms up the glue on the band which makes it moldable. So they should cool off into more of a curved shape which will sit better on your eyelid.
There’s nothing worse than a strip lash that keeps pinging-up one side!

I like to just play up my eyes as opposed to wearing too much foundation & intense lips.
So, I created a soft smokey eye & tousled hair, on myself for my sisters hen do yesterday.
I opted for some large lashes being as we were off to a cabaret evening. I usually wear something a bit more subtle.
On my eyes I used Benefit creaseless cream eyeshadow in ‘Birthday Suit’ & I used two browns by MAC to define the outer corners. On top of those, I used Bobbi Brown Black gel liner on the waterline & across the top lid.
This was quick to create.
I don’t like to wear foundation, so I just used a light mist of airbrush so it didn’t cover my freckles too much, and went for a more natural look to my skin. I added a touch of bronzer around my temples & cheekbones, and finished off with a bit of Harmony blush!
For my hair, I used a large Babyliss conical wand.
Here are some behind the scenes images of my Amphibian makeup look.
You can see a close up of the paper eyelashes I made, with the lace & crystals added on.
Also, the pieces I made for the head from foam paper. After cutting to shape I airbrushed all the pieces creating a gradient, then I glued all the crystals & beads on, added lace behind all the cut out sections, and finally I placed in some tacking pins at the edges to create spiked looking accents.
In the middle you can see the makeup after I applied all the pieces, before shooting. And on the left is a before & after of the model!
