Elegant Lashes #561 False Eyelashes Are Split Personality Troublemakers

Sunny Lee wearing Elegant Lashes 561xx Premium False Eyelashes

So, this just happened.

Sunny went from a sweet, innocent girl to a bold, ferocious Lee Hyori look-alike . And that kind of split personality is exactly what our #561 Black lashes are all about.

Some people don’t like gradation (increase in thickness and/or length toward the outer corner) on their lashes, but Sunny seems to be a fan of this lash with both a sweet and edgy side. “Business in the front, party in the back.” Haha

My sister looks so gangstah~~

Look how tough and scawy (and cool!) Sunny looks. It’s like those lashes have a mind of their own. O.o

Those of you with larger eyes will love this lash because the lash band is noticeably longer than most of our Light Density-Short Length lashes. And if you love a little length with an extra dose of drama on the ends, then this is definitely your style.

Another closeup of Sunny’s eyeball. Notice how the false lashes extend beyond Sunny’s eyes, elongating them. (Note: If you find that these lashes are too wide for you, you can always trim the eyelash to fit your eyes better.)

Notice again how the outer end of the lashes extends beyond the length of Sunny’s eyes, even when the lashes are applied fairly close to her tear ducts. If you have smaller eyes, these lashes will definitely be too long for you, but if you have larger eyes or desire an elongated look, our #561 lashes may just be your perfect match.

If you’re drooling and dying to get a pair of your own troublemaker #561 lashes, click here – but you better hurry since these lashes will be around only while supplies last!

Let me know what you think about these lashes in the comments below! Sunny says she likes the longer hairs but ended up trimming the inner corners to make the band shorter. Now she wears these whenever she goes out. 😛

 

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!

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:

Elegant Lashes #038 Black Human Hair False Eyelash

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. :)

Closeup of the lashes! The D126 Rhinestone lashes are applied on top of the #038 Black Human Hair lashes. Sunny also wore #133 Black bottom lashes for a little more drama and to balance out the potentially top-heavy look.

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!

Giant Green False Eyelashes for St. Patrick’s Day! (Elegant Lashes W581 “Shamrock” Wild Color Lash Review)

Hooray for last-minute blog posts! And random eye(lash) photos!

long green false eyelashes for saint patrick's day

Today is March 14th, which means that in three days, countless strangers will find it their rightful duty to pinch you in the _______ (fill in the blank) for the mere reason that you aren’t wearing a certain color to celebrate a certain holiday that most people don’t know the reason of celebration for. (Google it if you don’t know.)

I’m talking about Saint Patrick’s Day!

… Do green false eyelashes count as pinch protection? Because here comes a pair:

Elegant Lashes W581 Shamrock Wild Color Lashes - long green false eyelashes for saint patrick's day
KABLAM.

This huge, gigantic green monster of an eyelash is from our Wild Color Lash category (an entire family of freakishly gigantic, colorful lashes), is a perfect candidate for a St. Patty’s Day look, and is aptly named the “Shamrock” lash (formally known as Elegant Lashes® W581 Wild Color Lash).

I cannot stress enough how darn HUGE these lashes are. I don’t understand how people wear these, but they are freakin’ fun and awesome for Halloween and costume/party looks.

long green false eyelashes for saint patrick's day & Halloween

These lashes are so long that they extend waaaay past your eye. Perfect for.. men? And drag queens? And people with abnormally large eyes? Hahaha.

And let’s be honest, these are some giant lashes, so there is definitely gonna be some weight. Look at those lashes drooping a little at the ends. Hahaha

So how the heck do you wear such a huge eyelash comfortably?


Contrary to popular belief, false lashes don’t HAVE to be worn exactly as they come in the package. You can trim, shape, and customize any pair of lashes to your liking.

The W581 “Shamrock” Wild Color Lashes are way too big (width- AND length-wise) for me to wear as is, so I simply trim the ends off to fit my eyes: 

how to trim false eyelashes for halloween, costume, and dance

The Wild Color lashes are long enough at the tips (they flare up) to trim the falsies to a width that is shorter than my actual eye length without actually looking shorter than my eye. When trimmed this way, the lashes don’t droop as much at the ends, but they still have that nice, lengthy flared-up tip.

Award-winning photo right here. ;P

This is the W581 “Shamrock” Wild Color lash trimmed to fit my eyes. Look at all that green goodness. Darker forest green at the roots for intensity and depth with brighter lime green at the tips for highlights and FUN!

Some more photos of this giant green false eyelash. Even after trimming, this emerald beauty provides PLENTY of length. Don’t worry about running out of that.

 Wow. These funky lashes sure pack a punch with extreme length and a fun, flared cat-eye tip. Nice. =D

Final photo!

Hey, look. I looked at the camera for you. X)

 

The W581 “Shamrock” Wild Color Lashes are an amazing(ly dramatic) way to get your green on and celebrate St. Patty’s Day with style. Get it here before you lose a perfectly legitimate excuse to wear giant green eyelashes on a day other than Halloween.

If super-long, ginormous green falsies aren’t your cup of tea, check out this page for some other equally fun St. Patrick-approved green lashes. Just remember – don’t be boring.

LOTD: My Favorite Criss-Cross Lashes (M520 Mystic Lash!)

I think the title of this post pretty much explains it all. The M520 Mystic Lash has been my go-to lash for super natural glam looks since the day I first tried it on. I absolutely love it, and I always recommend this to friends who are just starting out with falsies, or need something very short and very natural-looking.

natural criss cross false eyelashesThese eyelashes don’t overdo it with the drama – they’re actually quite subtle but still have a way of making you feel glamorous. :)

 

Here’s what Elegant Lashes M520 Mystic false eyelashes look like in their packaging: Elegant Lashes M520 Mystic False Eyelashes in packaging

Now, I know everyone has their own preferences for their ideal false lash, but here are a few reasons why Elegant Lashes M520 is my favorite of the Mystic Lash collection:

 

 

Criss Cross Lashes Look Realistic

Did you know that criss-cross false eyelashes are actually the most natural-looking? Criss cross lashes mimic the overlapping growth pattern of your natural eyelashes. What that means is that your falsies look more believable, less detectable. I love that no one can tell I’m wearing falsies when I’m rocking the M520s. It just looks like I have naturally fabulous lashes. Oh, the deception! 😀

short natural criss cross false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes M520 Mystic LashJust look at those lovely, perfectly shaped eyelash hairs. I like how the criss-cross starts near the root, not mid-length. Who would say this looks fake?! Elegant Lashes M520 are hands-down the most natural-looking false eyelashes ever. Yay for oxymorons!

 

Believable Length

If you have an aversion to fake-looking lashes, here’s your savior. Elegant Lashes M520 Mystic Lashes are short enough in the inner corner to pass as your own natural lashes, and the flared ends are just long enough to create a “wow” factor without overdoing it. What can I say? It’s perfect for daytime looks, but also for nights when you want to look great without looking like you tried too hard. The M520 Mystic Lash is ideal for that I’m-always-this-naturally-beautiful look. 😉

 short natural criss cross false eyelashesHere’s my eyeball wearing the same exact pair. Isn’t it cool how the same style eyelash can look so different on two people?

 

Flirty Flared Ends

I love lashes that get longer toward the ends, because it gives the illusion of longer, bigger, sexier eyes. (Also, I am the world’s worst hand at winged eyeliner, and flared lashes help me achieve that “cat eye” look without having to do any actual work myself. Ha! I know, I am lazy… whatever.)accent false eyelashes flared_Elegant Lashes M520 Mystic Lash

Mmm. Flared lashes look so good.

 

Magic

Okay, I don’t know if it’s just me, but the M520 lash just DOES something for my eyes… I cannot explain it (which is terribly unhelpful, I know), but there is just something about the effect it gives… And no, it cannot be explained as, “They make my eyes POP!” because that’s completely not what it is. It’s more like… the eyes look ethereal… Ok, never mind. -_-

Here’s a photo I took after I wore the M520 Mystic lashes to a friend’s birthday. (I knew I was going to meet lots of people that day, but didn’t want to look like I tried too hard. I think I fooled everyone into thinking I am naturally this fantastic-looking. Hahaha just kidding!)

natural criss cross false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes M520 Mystic Lash

Maybe this magic is something only I can see, but still… Confidence is what makes or breaks a look, and the M520s definitely give me confidence, especially when I’m rocking these falsies on an otherwise bare eye.

Bottom line: I super-highly recommend this for people who cannot/do not wear long false lashes (or think that our Human Hair lashes are all too long). If you’re a fan of flared lashes, then definitely give this is a go. Otherwise, check out the other short criss-cross Mystic lashes (M030, M032, M033) which are longest in the center and give a rounder, cuter, doll-eye effect.

 

Hmmm… I like the M520 Mystic Lashes so much I want to share them with y’all. Here, I’ll give you a code: enter FreebieM520 at checkout and you’ll receive a FREE pair of M520 Mystic Lashes as a gift when you order $20+ worth of stuff from FalseEyelashesSite.com. Just make sure to use the code by Oct. 10th (of 2012). So easy to get free lashes, seriously… X)

So! Do you like these types of flared falsies? Ever considered trying criss-cross lashes? Voice your opinion in the comments section!

And do me a favor – if you know someone who’s starting to get interested in false lashes but doesn’t know where to start, share this post with them. It’ll save them a lot of time shopping around. 😉

 

Winged Cat-Eye Lashes: #696 Black

Who doesn’t love a sexy, butt-kicking, gun-wielding, tougher-than-tough woman?
I’m a huge fan of Angelina Jolie and I love the characters she plays. Her cat-like come-hither eyes make her an obvious shoo-in for sexy-tough roles in action films such as Salt and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
I’m doing a “mash-up” of both those characters and if you’re trying to duplicate any of her characters’ looks this Halloween, just know this: nothing says tough and sexy better than a nice, strong cat-eye. Continue reading Winged Cat-Eye Lashes: #696 Black
