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!

In this scene, she’s rocking Elegant Lashes F402 Feather Lashes.

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.

The makeup is still fit for the Capitol’s eccentric tastes but definitely more elegant… Thanks to Elegant Lashes! XD*** Here, Ve Neill used just a small section of our black feather lashes and applied it to the outer corners. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous…

DIY Colorful Halloween Lashes

false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creativeI’ve been waiting to write a blog on this look for the longest time and what better time to post than Halloween season? This is a really simple and fun arts-and-crafts-type project for those looking for a little pop of color from their lashes but not something that’s too crazy that they would feel self-conscious in. Best part is, you can customize the color scheme to whatever you want! I chose to do a neon-colored theme which is perfect for raves, glow-in-the-dark events, 80s themed costumes, and pretty much anything that welcomes a wide range of bright colors.

What you need:
– Elegant Lashes D413 Decorated Lashes  (available here: false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creativehttp://blog.falseeyelashessite.com/D413-Decorated-Eyelash.html)
– Nail polish of various neon colors
– Toothpick or nail art dotting tool
– Tissues/napkins to clean off nail polish on toothpick/dotting tool (optional)

 

  1. Brush the polish of your choice onto the end of your toothpick or dotting tool.false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creative
  2. Carefully place the dot of polish onto one of the ivory diamonds on the lashes. Make sure you coat the corners of the diamond for best results.false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creative
  3. Repeat above steps until all ivory diamonds are coated with polish.false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creative
  4. You’re done!false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creative

Don’t forget to wait for the polish to completely dry before you attempt putting them on. If you find that the lash band is too long for your eye shape, cut off the outer corners a little bit.

I love the way mine turned out! The eyelash itself is surprisingly wearable since the basic shape is a nicely fanned-out spiky lash with average density and a reasonable length. I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice it made my eyes look. =P

Gotta press down that flyaway…

Take a look at the differences between a normal Elegant Lashes D413 eyelash and my newly created neon bling version. The unexpected burst of colors that show whenever I blink or look down definitely keep this lash style from being anything but boring!

Which do you prefer? Ivory diamonds or multi-colored ones?false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creative

Here are some close-up shots (of the multi-colored diamonds).false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creativeGet ready for flyaway hair again!false eyelashes, halloween, neon lashes, diy lashes, how to customize, creative

There are hundreds of color schemes you can come up. Best of all, it only take a few minutes to create and complete your very own set of customized lashes! Perfect for Halloween, don’t you think?

If I were to categorize my neon-themed lashes to a specific costume, I guess it would best be categorized as something related to Lisa Frank. (Anybody remember Lisa Frank?!? Oh man, I just visited their ridiculously colorful website and came back with an eyesore in 20 seconds flat.)

For those of you who don’t know, Lisa Frank is pretty much unicorn barf come to life: tons of neon colors, stars, sparkles, and of course, unicorns.
