I love the look of volume and length when I am looking to choose false eye lashes and recently the lovely people at FalseEyelashes.co.uk sent me 2 pairs of Ardell Professional Lashes to try, aren’t they gorgeous?!
As much as I love make-up and creating make-up looks I don’t always wear it, if anything maybe once a week I will put make up on whether it is a natural look or a full on glam look. I spent so many years as a Makeup Artist counter girl wearing make-up everyday for years, it is nice and more exciting when I only wear it occasionally now and that is when I go all out!
When it comes to false lashes, I will only wear them on occasions. The main reason for this is that I have become quite lazy when it comes to putting them on and also the fact that I don’t have time when I am rushing out the door with 2 kids!
I decided that I wanted to try these lashes on a couple of occasions that I had planned so I could really use them on a bold and glamorous makeup look. Here is what I thought of the Ardell lashes!
First, lets talk about the Ardell Wispies, these are absolutely gorgeous on! They are exactly the type of lashes I would always pick up for any makeup look whether it is a toned down natural look or a full on glam look.
They are easy to apply with a sticky and flexible strip, you can take them straight out of the packet and stick them straight onto your eye lash line. I actually have oily eyelids (yes unfortunately that is a thing!) so eye products and lashes tend to slide off, so when I applied these on top of my own lashes I actually used some eyelash glue that I already had in my makeup drawers (always handy to keep in your makeup bag or handbag).
The look that I created in these photos was using the Marc Jacobs Beauty Gel Eye Crayons which I have reviewed here! The look is a “Pop of Pink”, so I decided to use the Wispies for a more low key lash look. They were so comfortable to wear and looked natural along the lash line, so there was no need to add eyeliner! I think these lashes would be great to wear during the day as well as of an evening and would suit a lot of different eye shapes.
The second pair of lashes are the Ardell Studio Effects. These lashes are bolder and thicker than the Wipsies, which is why I wanted to save them for my night out with the girls. As I planned and scheduled this makeup look, I chose to create a smokey green eye. I used the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette to create this smokey look for my night out and added these lashes on to complete the look.
I loved these lashes! They made me feel really confident and glamorous! They were so comfortable on I actually forgot I was wearing them all night until I got home and took my makeup off!
I would highly recommend both these pairs of lashes from Ardell and at a great price of £4.49 over at FalseEyelashes.co.uk I will have to put in an order soon for my next day/night out!
