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.
    Love my falsies.

    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
