Hello Cheeleaders, happy Friday and welcome to the 3 day weekend of abusing your liver or like me insanely trying to make exciting plans for 2018.
On the penultimate day of 5 days of Eylure I am sharing with you my secret to effortless beauty with or without makeup on – eyelash tinting!
“Eylure – the world’s favourite brand for false eyelashes since 1947. You’ll love our range of fake eyelashes, including all-time Eylure favourites as well as the hottest collections from Vegas Nay, House of Holland, Fleur de Force, Rosie Bea and Cheryl. We stock a huge variety of false lashes for every occasion, from day-to-day wear to stylish nights out with the girls, making sure you’ll never go wanting when it comes to the perfect fake lashes.” – courtesy of the Eylure website.
I have been using Eylure for years, they were the brand I reached for when I wore my very first pair of false eyelashes about 4 years ago and from then I loved them. There are so many ranges and collaborations to choose from that you are not stuck for options and there is always something new from them that I want to try (I currently have my eye on their new 3D mink effect lashes). I love this brand so when I came home to a massive box of PR goodies of all my favourite products from Eylure I was so surprised! I have been in contact with the fabulous Eylure team for a while now – shoutout to Norresa and Rosie, who kindly arranged for this to be sent over.
In the packaging you get the following: 1 instruction leaflet, 1 spoolie brush, 1 colour cream and 1 developer cream. The mixing tray is built in to the packaging at either side of the mixing trays. To get the best out of my tint, I also like to curl my eyelashes beforehand so that I get an even colour from root to tip. I use the colour black so that it matches my mascara and makes my eyelashes stand out more.
Before tinting, you need to make sure that your eye area is makeup and oil free, in addition to this make sure you have a barrier e.g vaseline on the surrounding skin in case you accidentally get some of the creams on your skin.
As the application instructions are included in this packaging I am not going to describe that process so make sure you read these first as I completely follow the instructions (for once), the only thing I will say is curl your lashes as I mentioned earlier and try not to get any of the cream on your waterline otherwise it will sting and your eyes will water. Also I find it a little hard to draw the spoolie brush through my lashes when applying step 2 so just be patient with that – take your time (try not to exceed the recommended time), as this I use the shade black my lashes won’t go too dark so I took my time until I perfected my technique.
I love to tint my lashes as it just makes them stand out more when I have taken off my makeup and it also gives me that little bit more confidence to go makeup free more often. I started using Dylash when I knew I was going to go in to a swimming pool and I wanted to look at least half decent! My eyelashes are so soft still when I use this and the colour lasts as long as your natural eyelash cycle.
Let me know in the comments below if you like to tint your eyelashes and if you would consider doing them at home yourself.
Love and (high)light✌
