The Lash Queen

I am the self-proclaimed Lash Queen! I LOVE lashes. There is just something about them - instant glamour. Old Hollywood glamour, even. You have that...something. That oomph. People can't figure out what it is, but it's just that extra dazzle...the most intriguing woman in the room.

MAC Cosmetics has a wide variety of lashes - all lengths, thicknesses, designs etc. If you care for them properly, you can get up to 3 uses per lash set. If you coat your real lashes and false lashes with mascara, they tend to get funky and therefore unusable a second time.

If you are a lash virgin, I would suggest going to your local drugstore and getting a cheap pair to practice with. If you are an old pro and want to splurge a little - Shu Uemura offers luxury, extravagant, beautiful lashes (each pair is $40):
When applied correctly, lashes can look very natural, if that's what you're going for. You will look like yourself, updated. Lashes are perfect for a nice dinner or night out, weddings, proms or if you are just fabulous and want that extra oomph.

When applied badly, you will look like a street walker at best. Minimal lash glue is key - I like the cheap drug store kind that is grey or black in color. White glue sometimes dries too light and is visible, not good. The closer you get the false lashes to your natural lash line, the better they will look. A little trick is to eliminate the space between natural and false lashes is filling in any gap with some black liner.

Here are my go-to lashes. I tend to favor the "high drama" lashes, what can I say! =)

MAC #35 Lash - Dramatic in length and fullness
MAC #48 Lash - Longer bundles of lashes with flirty fringe
MAC #7 - The most natural looking MAC lash in my opinion, and most peoples' favorite!

What lashes do you ladies use, any favorites? Any other tips you can share? I love hearing from you all!

With Love,
Makeup Majesty
