mac lashes .33


Ah, false lashes. 
If only my daily routine allowed more time, I would love to flutter some fake lashes every day, but I tend to just slap on my mascara and scoot out the door. I am not very good at applying falsies under pressure! I do enjoy wearing fake lashes though, and love they way they instantly add so much length and volume; really enhancing your eye look. 
I received these MAC lashes no.33 after attending a recent event and I decided to give them a whirl at the weekend.




I applied the lashes with my trusty duo glue. Once I had lined the edge of the lashes with the glue, I waited 30 seconds or so until the glue had gone tacky. I then manoeuvred the lashes into place with a pair of tweezers and a lot of patience. In hindsight I should have trimmed the length of the lashes as they were a little too long to fit along my lash line, but they looked fine once brushed through with some mascara.


On my lids I decided to use one of The Body Shop's baked-eye-colours in 01. Copper. 
I really love eyeshadows duos - the fact that both your main and crease colours are there in one place really excites me! Its quite a subtle shade but I like the bronzed shimmer it gives to my lids. 




I do really like these lashes although they aren't probably a style I would have chosen. At first inspection they seemed a little 'spiky'. I like lashes to be all uniformed but these ones create a selection of shorter and longer lashes. Once on however, I think they looked quite nice.


What are your thoughts?
Do you enjoy flaunting some falsies?

I think they look great on you, I use the Girls Aloud ones, and find they really open up your eyes and make you look fresh on nights out.

Milly, you have the most beautiful eyes! I think the individual lashes are still a bit too tricky for me though, i'm a bit clumsy and would probably end up sticking my eyes shut or something silly xx
