Elegant Lashes Limited Edition Holiday Lash Kit in Action!

Elegant Lashes Holiday Lash Kit False Eyelashes_Sunny & Bonnie SHYNE

Hooray for the holidays! This time of year calls for holiday parties, and holiday parties call for glamour and sparkle. Lots of it.

So how do you choose which lashes to complete your sparkly holiday look with?

AintNobodyGotTimeForThat

You could look through our 500 styles for the best glittery rhinestone styles to suit your sequined dress, but as Sweet Brown so aptly put it, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

So we did all the work for you and came up a gorgeous Limited Edition Holiday Lash Kit that compiles 6 of our most glamorous yet wearable lash styles – including rhinestone lashes! You’re gonna love it. Best of all, these styles can be layered/stacked to create a customized look.

Elegant Lashes Holiday Lash Kit Limited Edition

Sunny and I are appearing in a blog post together for the first time! Isn’t this fun?
We’ll be showing you how each lash looks like on a real human (remember, they’ll look different on everyone since everyone has different eyes) and how to stack (layer) lashes to create a fully customized look. Here goes!

M059 Mystic Lash (cruelty-free faux mink)

Mmm, ruby red curls with dramatically long yet completely wearable faux mink lashes. These lashes showcase criss-crossed hairs in the inner corner with a sweeping flared-out look at the outer corners. Who knew drama could look this good?Shyne Bonnie Elegant Lashes M059 faux mink Mystic false eyelashes

Did you know that Makeup Forever sells these exact same pairs for $16? Funny how they’re made in the same factory as ours, too. *cough cough* I just gave you a huge clue as to how to wear designer-brand lashes for dirt cheap. *cough cough*

Here are more closeups of the M059 Mystic Lashes so you get a better idea what they look like when worn:Elegant Lashes M059 faux mink false Mystic false eyelashes

When wearing dramatic lashes, it’s always a good idea to balance out your look with a pair of under/bottom/lower lashes. I used one of our best-selling under lashes, Elegant Lashes #133 Black.

Don’t you just want to touch these lashes? These are the perfect alternative to pricey mink fur lashes. They mimic the shape and cut of mink fur but it’s made of 100% cruelty-free synthetic fibers instead! Better yet, they last just as long – sometimes even longer – than mink fur lashes with proper care. Winning!

 

#535 Black + D178 Rhinestone Half Lash

Sunny wore two pairs of lashes – D178 Rhinestone Half Lashes on top of super-thick and luscious #535 Black Human Hair False Lashes. I don’t know about you but those rhinestones are looking mighty glamorous to me. They add that perfect touch of festive sparkle for holiday looks and parties.

Here’s what the #535 lashes look like by themselves. Nice flirty cat-eye effect, eh?

More pics of the lashes stacked. The D178 lashes actually add even more volume to the already-dense #535 lashes. Talk about drama!

M071 Mystic Lash

Ah, donning my sister’s high school prom dress for this photo. Lashes look subtle and natural here. Nothing too special, right?

Let’s take a closer look: Elegant Lashes M071 Silver Metallic Hologram False Eyelashes

Whew, look at that silver tinsel!! Although this is the shortest lash style of the Holiday Lash kit, it’s definitely far from boring. The gorgeous silver strips along the lash base catch the light beautifully whenever you blink… kinda like Christmas lights on your eyes!

Hmm, what am I doing here? Oh, that’s right: I was thinking about how I was going to lift the turkey out of the oven while wearing my sister’s prom dress.

But first, stare at my eyeball! This style is perfect if you want a more natural look but still crave a little holiday pizzazz to spice up your eyes. As with all our lashes in the Holiday Lash Kit, you can stack it on top of another eyelash for added length and volume.

#038 Black + D126 Rhinestone Lashes

Shyne Sunny Lee for Elegant Lashes Holiday False Eyelash Kit

Aww, look at my sister <3

Once again, Sunny wore two pairs of lashes on top – a human hair strip lash with a rhinestone eyelash on top for added sparkle. Here’s what the #038 Black lashes look like by themselves:

These #038 Black lashes are part of our Light Density – Long category, and yes, they looked very long on Sunny. Not ideal for everyday office looks, but definitely appropriate for parties and nighttime!

And now with the rhinestone lashes on top! You can see that there is a mysterious bit of shimmery something on her eyes. Rhinestone lashes look so pretty under any kind of light. 🙂

The complete look: eye-catching and sparkly holiday/New Year’s Eve makeup without looking heavy or overdone. Yay! ^O^

 

 

I hope this helped to introduce you to the Holiday Lash Kit styles and gave you some ideas on how to utilize this amazing kit! If you want a kit of your own, get it here before it’s gone!

Remember, you can combine the 6 lashes in the Limited Edition Holiday Kit in whatever way you want to create your own customized look. Or, you can simply wear each lash by itself without stacking/layering. It’s up to you and what look you want to achieve, so go ahead and be creative!

False Eyelashes 101 Tip: How (and Why) to Layer False Eyelashes

Here’s a very useful but little-known tip: like clothes, false eyelashes can be layered to create a completely customized look. Brilliant in its simplicity, layering false lashes is a very handy technique used to add volume, dimension, color, or sparkle to a makeup look. And trust me, it does not look messy. Here are some different ways you can layer your false eyelashes to fit your unique style/mood:


Double up on false eyelashes to create intense volume:

Layering two pairs of the same style of false eyelashes is ideal if you love the shape of a certain style but want more volume. I love the curl and wearable length of Elegant Lashes 824 lashes (I switch off wearing black and brown styles depending on my mood), but one day I wanted to see what I would get if I combined the two and wore them together. Let’s see how that went:

First, this is how Elegant Lashes 824 Brown looks on my eyes. When I’m wearing some makeup.

Here are the 824 Brown lashes again, on a more naked eye. My natural lashes are completely invisible in this picture, but believe me – they’re there. Somewhere….

See how there’s instantly more volume? 🙂natural looking false eyelashes_layering black and brown false eyelashes for natural voluminous lookThe complete look. Yay! I loved my lashes this day. Perfect length, extra hairy and full. Me gusta. 😀

Add intensity, definition, and flair:

Sometimes you need more drama. On the eyes, that is. While I can always depend on my trusty #213 Black lashes for a beautiful look, I wanted to have really unique, cool-looking lashes for my birthday. Layering a pair of Elegant Lashes M081 Mystic Lashes on top of the #213 Black false lashes I was already wearing gave me the perfect flair and edginess I was craving. (Sorry, I didn’t take any high-quality close-ups of the eyes, so these snapshots will have to suffice.)
False Eyelashes_Elegant Lashes M081 Mystic Lash and 213 Black False Eyelashes

I LOVED my lashes this day (and my nails – ha!). And I was darn proud of my little birthday lash concoction. Adding a defined spiky false eyelash on top of soft, wispy lashes gives the eyes a very nice lift and accent, with the added bonus of more definition. I am genius.

Try this out for yourself – apply your favorite soft and full lash, and then apply a spiky, more defined lash on top. Your look will change completely. I’ve also paired #045 Black and #220 Black together and really liked what I saw. 😉

 

Soften or fill out super spiky/sparse false lashes:

If layering false eyelashes can have the effect of intensifying your look, the opposite is also possible. If you feel that a certain lash is a little too intensely spiky or sparse, add a layer of fuller, wispier lashes to soften the look and/or fill out the spaces. Here I applied M355 Mystic Lashes (a criss-cross accent lash) on top of Elegant Lashes #220 Black.

http://blog.falseeyelashessite.com/220-Black-False-Eyelash.html

See how the lashes look softer and fuller towards the outer corner? That’s the softening and volumizing effect of layering a sparse, spiky lash with a fuller accent lash.

Applying accent lashes (mini false eyelashes that are applied on the outer corner of the eye) on top of spiky lashes emphasizes just the outer corners, giving the eyes a nice lift and flirty cat-eye effect. I now always wear my #220 lashes with some kind of accent lash at the ends, because I like the extra oomph, and because … well, because I need all the help I can get. -_-

 

Add sparkle to ordinary false eyelashes:

Everyone knows that false eyelashes add the perfect finishing touch to any look. But when the occasion calls for something more, layer your favorite falsies with some rhinestone half lashes to add some beautiful, glamorous sparkle. When you don’t want to fuss with a full strip rhinestone eyelash but rhinestone half lashes alone aren’t enough, layering is your best friend.

Elegant Lashes M015 Mystic Lashes and D178 rhinestone false eyelashes

Bonnie paired Elegant Lashes M015 Mystic Lash with D178 Rhinestone Half Lashes applied on the outer ends. She gets the lengthening and volumizing benefits of a full strip lash, while the beautiful rhinestones make this look worthy of any special occasion.

When her eyes are open, she has beautiful lashes with just a hint of something special going on. The treat is when she blinks, and the rhinestones glisten as they catch the light. So pretty!

 

Add color and texture to costume looks:

I love when artists get creative and combine different colors and textures of lashes. There are so many possible combinations, and layering lashes allows you to customize every detail to match your unique vision.

Above is a photo sent in by the amazingly talented makeup artist Patrick Boltinghouse. Most people are content with using/wearing just one pair of feather eyelashes, but this combination of F131 white feather eyelashes and wispy F404 black feather lashes is to die for! I love how the feathers here are torn and combined to create this whimsical fantasy look.

Bonnie also came up with her own colorful false eyelash combination using Carnival Color Lashes, which she wore for her Mardi Gras look:colorful purple and gold false eyelashes, mardi gras colorful makeup

The glistening gold effect on the tips is achieved by layering golden tinsel C748 Carnival Color Lashes on top of purple C842 Carnival Color Lashes.

For a much simpler and more wearable look layering color lashes, try combining a colorful under lash, like Elegant Lashes C049 Carnival Color Lash, with your favorite “normal” falsies. Here I used C049 blue under lashes with a similar-looking under lash, Elegant Lashes #049 Black, and used both as upper lashes.

Blue neutralize reds and yellows, making the whites of the eyes look brighter. If your eyes are tired and red (as mine often are), wear blue-tinted lashes, mascara, or eyeliner to help create the illusion of  clearer, whiter eyes.

The blue lashes are subtle and understated, but they really bring a nice, fresh pop of color to your everyday look.

The Perfect Springtime False Eyelashes (They’re Brown!)

Spring is finally here and I’m welcoming the warm weather by wearing three different brown false eyelashes on my eyes!

Just kidding, I’m only doing that for the sake of convenience. (As you can tell, I’ll be showing off three different lash styles in today’s post.) But seriously. Brown false eyelashes are the perfect way to pretty up for spring because of how soft and subtle they are.

brown false eyelashes are ideal for red hair
Brown lashes are all the rage in Japan these days and it’s not that hard to see why. (In case you haven’t got a clue, read why brown lashes are so dandy here.) Now let’s see those beauties in action!

thick dramatic brown false eyelashes

Oh yes, you know you like that velvety softness. I’m wearing Elegant Lashes #079 Brown on top and Elegant Lashes #602 Brown on the bottom. Honestly, I could never wear #079 Black no matter how much I wanted to because it’s just too big, bold, and … scary (for me). But that’s obviously not the case with the brown version.

Like I said in the Brown Lashes blog post, a brown version of the same eyelash will look totally different from the black version. Because of the lighter color, you can pull off longer, more dramatic styles without looking like a crazy person. (If you’re new to false lashes, I highly recommend starting off with brown lashes first – especially if your first pair of falsies are very thick and/or long ones.)

Can you imagine what these lashes would look like in black? If you can’t, let’s just say it’ll look a whole lot thicker and longer than it already does. No wonder I’m so intimidated by them! For those who can pull off the bolder black version, I commend you! As for myself, I’ll just stick to the brown version. It matches better with red hair anyway (which is also discussed in the Brown Lashes blog post!). XD

On to the next style I’m wearing …

Say hello to subtle spikes! I’m wearing Elegant Lashes #073 Brown on top and Elegant Lashes #602 Brown on the bottom (again).

That’s my subtle attempt at covering up my other eye. X)

Spiky lashes are great for all eye shapes. I’m loving this style because it’s not too dense, it works well with the under lash I’m wearing, and the spikes, although long, are not intimidating in any way.
