Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to carry 12 of your most-used lashes in a convenient box that keeps all your lashes clean and protected? And wouldn’t it be nice if that box ensured your makeup kit was organized and free of clutter? Wouldn’t it be great to have all 12 premium lashes at your disposal without having to deal with wasteful, cumbersome individual packaging? Wouldn’t it be even better if that box was actually pretty?

Introducing the new Elegant Lashes Pro Dozen Pack: the sleek, space-saving, multi-functional new lash box that’s so revolutionary, so practical, it has every pro MUA thinking, “WHY HASN’T ANYONE INVENTED THIS BEFORE?!?!??!”

Trust me, this thing is going to change. your. life.

Since Day One, Elegant Lashes has been all about catering to professionals and making their jobs easier. The new Pro Dozen Pack isn’t just a dozen pairs of lashes in a box. From the pretty packaging to the minimalistic size/shape to the innovative easy slide-out tray and multi-functional design, every last detail has been meticulously thought out and perfected to make your life as a busy professional as smooth, seamless, and efficient as possible – all while never compromising on style.bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging

 

 

 

Let’s take a closer look at this beauty.

 

 

Clear PVC Window:
Lashes need to be SEEN. That’s why the Pro Dozen Pack is designed with a large, pre-installed PVC window that functions not only as a glorious display window for pretty lashes, but allows you to quickly and efficiently identify which style is inside. bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packagingBecause let’s face it… when you’re on the job, every second spent fumbling with cute but impractical packaging is a minute wasted. Unlike other premium lash brands, our style numbers are always printed DIRECTLY onto our lash trays so you never again have to wonder about the name of your favorite lash. 

 

 


Easy Slide-Out Drawer:
This is what makes the Pro Dozen Pack so special. Sure, we could have just shoved 12 pairs of lashes in a box. But what happens when you try to remove a lash? Or two? or eight? You’ll have to spill the whole contents out and count them. And when you’re done, you’ll have to pick that mess up and shove all the unused lashes back in. There are much better things you could be doing with your time. bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging

The convenient slide-out tray gives you full access to all the lashes you need at the pull of a pretty pink ribbon tab. Whether you need 4 lashes for the bridal party or all 12 for the models you’re prepping for the catwalk, you’ll know exactly how many lashes to grab and how many you’ll have left for your next job.bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging

With all 12 lashes neatly organized in one  single slide-out tray, clutter and wasted time become a thing of the past.

Drawing done by yours truly!! <3

The Pro Dozen Pack’s slide-out tray is intuitive: simply grab the number of lashes you need from the back of tray (the side that’s closest to you, duh). This ensures that the lashes in front are always upright with the style number visible.

 

 

 

 

Multi-Functional:
The Pro Dozen Pack is designed to be so much more than just your average little box of lashes. As the box empties out, add in tools such as your favorite false eyelash adhesive, mascara, tweezers, and even an eyelash curler to make your Pro Dozen Pack a multi-purpose kit for all your eyelash essentials. bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging, all your eyelash essentials in one caseYou can even swap out some of the lashes for other lash styles so that you have multiple styles in one sleek case. Perfect for when you’re travelling for multiple days at a time and don’t want to wear the same lash style every day. bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging

 

 

 

 

Ultra-Portable:
Speaking of travel… did you notice how, despite everything it has to offer, the Pro Dozen Pack is incredibly simple and streamlined? The overall sleek and minimalistic design ensures maximum efficiency with minimum wasted space. Can I also mention it fits incredibly comfortably in your hand?bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging, ultra portable, travel friendly

 

 

 

But wait… THERE’S MORE!
An even better bonus I bet you didn’t notice: we made the tab on the back flap extra long to ensure that it never accidentally opens (and spills out all your lashes) while being jostled around in your makeup kit. Even TSA can’t mess this up. See? I told you we thought of everything.bulk eyelashes, pro dozen pack, elegant lashes, lash drawer, lash stash, false eyelases, dozen false eyelashes, smart packaging, cute packaging, good ideas, cool idea, cool packaging, pretty packaging, good packaging, genius idea, genius packaging, travel friendly, TSA friendly

 

 

 

We worked so hard for the past year to bring this project to life and are proud to be able to present to you something that really does make you wonder how you ever lived without it! We hope you love the new Pro Dozen Pack as much as we do! ♥

Remember, your makeup kit is a reflection of you.

So… let us upgrade you.

Are False Eyelashes Waterproof?

fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunnyNow that summer is in full swing, you may be wondering if it’s possible to wear your favorite lashes to the beach or pool without having them fall off. We know eyelash extensions applied with individual lash adhesive will stay on for sure. They’re supposed to stay on for weeks – even months – at a time. But not everyone has the money or time for that. And if you’re like me, you also won’t want to commit to it, either.false eyelashes, false eyelash glue, fake false eyelash adhesive, individual eyelash glue adhesive, semi permanent eyelash glue adhesive, difference between strip lash glue and individual lash glue

By the way, if you didn’t know that tidbit about individual lash adhesives, you can read all about them here. Or by clicking on that picture over there. Either works.

 

So is there hope for those who can’t leave the house without their falsies?

Can you wear fake eyelashes to the beach or pool and have them stay on? Is it really possible to waterproof false lashes?

Let’s find out in my little experiment!

Just so you know, all lashes were applied with clear waterproof strip lash glue. (Skip to our video at the bottom if you don’t want to read!)

Round 1: Strip Lashesfake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

Sunny went with a strip lash style that could easily blend with her natural lashes. Anything with a knotted band is great, so picking up a pair of #213 Black lashes was a no-brainer (which doesn’t explain why she’s holding up a pack of #415 Black lashes in the photo below, but… oh well!)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Unfortunately, after having buckets of water splashed at her face, the lashes didn’t even last five minutes on her eyes. Water and lashes never make for a pretty combination because moisture will warp the shape and curl of false eyelashes – especially if the lashes are made of 100% human hair.  Moreover, we learned that clear glue turns white when wet – yikes!fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Round 2: Individual (Flare) Lashesfake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

Individual lashes look incredibly natural, so if I were to opt for lashes at a beach or pool, these guys would be my choice. I wore flares in this experiment since I find them easier to use than singles. (I actually tried this experiment with individual single lashes a while back. You can check out what happened to them in this post.)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Several buckets of water later, my lashes looked like either someone blew all their boogers on them or a family of lice decided to make my eyelashes their happy home due to the lovely effect of clear glue turning white when wet. They stayed on better than Sunny’s strip lashes did, but they fell off whenever I wiped water from my eyes until I eventually had no more eyelashes left.fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny, individual lashes, flare eyelashes, cluster lashes

Pretty gross, right? Yeah… I think this round fails in more areas than just one.

Okay, I’m thinking maybe it will be a good idea to fuse my natural lashes and individual flare lashes with a coat of waterproof mascara to make sure they don’t budge at all this time. (Oh what, waterproof glue and waterproof mascara? That’s genius.) Seems like the perfect way to waterproof the lashes, right? Let’s see the results after dunking my face in water several times.

But first, let’s admire my hair and how pretty my lashes look before getting wet. I always like putting mascara on my finished flare lash application because nothing screams “My lashes are REAL!” like a set of clumpy-looking mascara-coated lashes. (You know it’s true. Just look at the photo below. You would never guess those aren’t my real eyelashes, right?)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny, individual lashes, flare eyelashes, cluster lashes, waterproof mascara, mascara on with false eyelashes, can you put mascara on false fake eyelashes, red hair, long red hair

Also note, not a trace of white glue/boogers/wannabe eyelash lice to be seen on my eyes.

… and it looks like the supposed dynamic duo of waterproof glue + waterproof mascara didn’t work after all. I’ll give credit where credit is due: they definitely stayed on longer than the first two rounds. However, I still had that gross booger/lice-looking business happening on my eyelashes and after several more splashes of water, my perfectly applied lashes started to get loose and eventually fell off.

It’s a little late to post this since the #1 movie in America, Catching Fire, has been out for two weeks already, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less thankful!

Elegant Lashes had the incredible honor of appearing in the huge blockbuster hit The Hunger Games last year and our lashes are being used once again in Catching Fire! That’s right, Oscar-winning Hunger Games head makeup artist Ve Neill is our actual customer! It was so fun watching our lashes fluttering around on the eyes of Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jena Malone as well as the many colorful citizens of the Capitol.

Here’s a shot of a Capitol citizen cheering on Katniss and Peeta during the opening ceremonies of their first Hunger Games. (Scene is from the first Hunger Games movie.) She’s wearing Elegant Lashes F216 gold Feather Lashes!

 

Let’s see how our lashes were used in Catching Fire. Chins up, smiles on!

Effie’s looking great in Elegant Lashes F404 Feather Lashes. This is where Effie makes a cunning proposition to make “something gold” for Haymitch and Peeta to symbolize that they’re a team. Why is it cunning? You have to watch the movie (or read the book) to find out.

Afro Prom Birthday, IMATS Pasadena, & Sparkly Rhinestone Eyelashes

There are few better excuses to wear sparkly rhinestone eyelashes than your birthday… and a makeup artist trade show. So here is a useless post full of photos from our Afro Prom-themed birthday and IMATS LA in Pasadena. Yay, I’m kind of up-to-date because both events happened within the past 2 weeks. Let us begin…

Our birthday invitation (a.k.a., Facebook event photo) image looked a little like this:

Awesome afro prom-dress bobblehead birthday pic is awesome.

Fellow birthday princess Virginie came over the night before and we did some girly skincare stuff to our faces before knocking out. The next day was full of nail-painting, sash-making, food-eating, and … ready-getting. >;) To complete our birthday makeup, we all wore Elegant Lashes® rhinestone eyelashes! Bonnie wore D126, Virginie wore D179, and I wore D175. Yay, sparkles!

Glamorous bathroom photo shoot begins.

All three of us wore AT LEAST two pairs of falsies. I wore three: 747mini Black, D175 rhinestone eyelashes (applied on my crease to lessen the weight while doubly making my eyes ginormous), and a full strip of 104 Brown Under Lashes on the bottom.  Hey, it’s my birthday. I can wear what I want to.

Our entire party of 20 people (who knew I had so many friends??) wore afro wigs and got suited up pretty nicely. (I would share photos of our huge afro-licious group, but I think some people want their identities to be kept secret.)

Some of the fabulously fro’d out ladies:

Fun afro-tastic times with friends. Too many photos taken that night, so I will stop with our thank-you card:

Now on to this weekend’s IMATS LA in Pasadena! It was our very first trade show, and we didn’t know what to expect. We just tried to be as prepared as possible…

… by wearing D126 rhinestone eyelashes every day of the show! XD

On the first day of the show, I wore 747-S Black lashes under the rhinestone eyelashes for more fullness.

There was an after-party after Day 2 of the show. I basically went there to see if there was free food (there were tiny fancy hors d’oeuvres, but hardly any). At least I got a cool photo with this super-cool model in her cool makeup. That’s cool to the third power.IMATS special effects makeup model

Day 3: Realizing that I don’t own enough pink clothes to last me 3 entire days, I gave up on the last day and just wore blue.  Bonnie wore my pink dress. She is saved.

Haha, Bonnie showing off her rhinestone eyelashes to some shoppers. We were doing this ALL day, because no one had seen rhinestone eyelashes on a living human before.Elegant Lashes at IMATS

Bonnie: “Yeah, isn’t it insane that MAC uses our factory and they charge 80% more because of their name?!” SHYNE Bonnie at Elegant Lashes, IMATS 2013

At the end of the day, we were exhausted beyond reason… and for good reason, too!

Still, we got in a picture with our next-door neighbor, Kyira of SnogCosmetics.com. We were both newbies to IMATS!

Our booth was right next to/behind Sugarpill’s, and I told Sugarpill founder/creator Amy on Saturday that I was gonna sneak over to her booth after the show to snap a photo with her. (Total fangirl moment when she walked past the Elegant Lashes booth. Whatever, I’m not embarrassed or ashamed.) Unfortunately, I got too preoccupied with cleaning up and the photo never happened. :(

Thankfully, as I was gracefully sprawled out in my chair massaging my aching neck on the last day after breaking down our booth, Amy came over to say hi and sorry that she didn’t visit after the show yesterday.  >O<!!!!!!!!! Why you so darn colorful AND nice?? ****DX

I try to avoid the tired “hand on hip” girl-pose like the plague, but I was seriously lacking ideas. Really, I NEVER EVER know what to do with my arms/hands when taking photos. So I copied Amy and put my hand awkwardly on my hip. And now we look like awkward angry-pose smiling people. But we’re still smiling.

IMATS was sooo much work, but it was worthwhile and we enjoyed talking to everyone. (I’ve never talked so much in my life!!)

… Maybe we’ll be back next year. 😉
