lashings of lashes

Wednesday evening saw me journeying to London town to attend the Eylure and Elegant Touch event. With enough fakery on display to rival the set of TOWIE, it was a super occasion to meet with other bloggers and check out the up and coming ranges from both these brands. It was hosted at Callooh Callay, a funky bar in Shoreditch with decadent velvet seating and all the quirkiness of a Lewis Carroll novel. With a ‘Top Hat’ cocktail in hand, a deliciously sweet blend of rum and…some more rum, I navigated around in awe of the lashings of lashes and fake nails laid out before us. I love false nails but am trying to kick the habit and regain some natural length and strength to my own nails. However some of the nail sets were so wonderfully tacky and sparkly, I think I might have to succumb and whack some on! All in the interest of beauty blogging you understand…

I got the chance to meet and share some beauty banter with many other lovely bloggers, whose blogs I have avidly read for ages but never had the chance to meet IRL.
From left to right,
Vivianna, Zoe, me, Laura and Corrie (who kindly let me use her photo)

We had the chance to have some lashes or nails applied but I declined. a) Because I was too busy chit-chatting away and b) I was heading straight home on the train so feared they would go a little unappreciated.

As a consequence to this event, I have so much fakery to share with you over the next few weeks! I am particularly excited to fly the flag with these Queenie Rocks nails and encapsulate all the iconic glamour of the 60’s with these Twiggy-esque upper and lower lashes.

Let me know if there is anything you would particularly like me to feature.

    I've been looking for those Union Jack nails for weeks now! I saw them featured in a magazine so I cannot wait until they hit the shelves.

    The upper and lower lashes are divine, I used them for a photo shoot recently and they're stunning!
