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

elegant lashes rhinestone false eyelashes 535 and D178 rhinestone false eyelashes

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.

Loving the natural length and flattering criss-cross hairs of M071 Mystic Lashes!

 

#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!

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.

All the Pretty Eyelash Photos You Missed on Instagram

Sheesh, haven’t posted in so long! Sorry! >.<

If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, however, you’ll know that we’re not dead. But for those of you with neither Facebook or Instagram, here are all the photos of lashes and looks shared by us and other Elegant Lashes® fans.

Enjoy!

Here’s our first ever Instagram post! (btw, we’re at @ElegantLashes. <– Follow to see pretty pictures!)

Big lashes and bold blue makeup

I wore Elegant Lashes® #040 Black lashes on top and #602 Black Under Lashes on my lower lash line. The #040 lashes be cray cray, they’re so thick and long and dramatic. But hey! A girl’s gotta have fun. I went all out with the under lashes and err’thang because big, bold lashes call for big, bold makeup. And more lashes.. Of course I didn’t go anywhere looking like this….

soft brown false eyelashes

These are the #028 lashes in Brown. (I wrote a review about them here. They’re also included in our deliciously cute Brownie Lash Kit. Yay!)  So soft and purty!

best favorite false eyelashes

My absolute favorite – Elegant Lashes® #046 Black False Eyelashes. Just perfect.

natural false eyelashes

Amazing lash application by @gwenfauxglaux (Follow her!) She used Super Flare Individual Lashes to create this sexy cat-eye lash look. Short on inner corners, medium in the middle, and long on the ends. So dang perfect!

fourth of july makeup and colorful lashes

And here’s our lovely Bonnie rocking Elegant Lashes® G241 “Liberty Glow” Glow in the Dark False Eyelashes for her red, white, and blue Fourth of July look. She’s also wearing #066 Black false lashes as her base lash and #133 Under Lashes on her lower lash line.

Same lashes, different makeup.  I think I took these photos on the same day, actually. One natural-looking eye, one smoky eye. Hahaha! I’m ridiculous…. -_-

most natural looking false eyelashes

Why is my sister wet, you ask? She had me throw buckets of water into her face trying to see if waterproof mascara would prolong the life of false lashes in the water. Wanna know the answer? Click here. (BTW, Bonnie is wearing Elegant Lashes Individual Flare Lashes in Extra-Short, Short, and Medium.)

thick false eyelashes with cat eye effect

Dang, haven’t taken a selfie in ages. It was quite awkward, let me tell you. Anyway, I wore our brand-new Limited Edition Elegant Lashes® #148 Black False Eyelashes to a friend’s wedding. Super huge and glamorous (at least for me). There are like a million layers of lashes on this one strip. Me likey~~~ very durable. I’ll probably get like 26 uses out of these. X)

BTW, we now have a better closeup photo these lashes. Here you go:false eyelashes human hair - elegant lashes #148 black

Who doesn’t love before and after photos? @beprettybychelsea shared this photo of a bride-to-be wearing Elegant Lashes® human hair falsies. She’s so cute – she reminds me Jennifer Lawrence!!

Sugarpill eyeshadow and Elegant Lashes false eyelashes

Can’t get enough of this. @sandykani90 used Elegant Lashes® #704 Black Lashes on top and Individual Short Flare Lashes on her lower lash line. Love the colors and that gold brow. And I always love when people wear individual lashes on their lower lash line and actually make it look good. This is just yums…

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.

How To: Glam Zombie Halloween Makeup Look with THREE Costume False Eyelashes

Halloween zombie makeup look with costume fake eyelashes
Boo.

Halloween is only a few days away, and for those of you who don’t have a costume yet and want something simple yet Halloween-y, zombies are a no-brainer. Ha! No brains. See what I did there? 😉

There are tons of zombie makeup tutorials available on YouTube, so I’m not going to get into how I drew my face. What I will do is show you which lashes were used for this look, and why I used not one, but THREE different pairs.

But before we begin…

I wrote an article a while back giving 3 insanely practical and little-known tips on How to Wear Color Lashes. And I just realized I followed those 3 tips in chronological order.  Cool.

3 tips for wearing halloween costume eyelashes

Let me just say this now: If you’re wearing fake lashes for Halloween this year, you REALLY should read that post if you haven’t done so already. You kinda might regret not having read the article when Halloween night rolls around… Just saying.

Anyway, back to creating that zombie eye:

Lash #1: The base lash

What’s a base lash, you say?

A base lash is a pair of “normal,” non-costume falsies (we use our Human Hair lashes) that are worn under costume lashes to bring definition and depth to the eyes.  Read more about it here. Trust me, it makes a WORLD of difference.

For this look, I used Elegant Lashes® #003 Black False Eyelashes as my base lash:

Elegant Lashes® #003 Black False Eyelashes

I chose this as the base lash because it looked quite similar to the glow-in-the-dark costume eyelash I was going to wear: Elegant Lashes G234 “Glow Stixx” Eyelashes.

Elegant Lashes G234 “Glow Stixx” Glow in the Dark False Eyelashes

Of course, you don’t need to wear a base lash for every costume look, but I initially tried my zombie look with just the black-and-white G234 “Glow Stixx” eyelash, and yes, it looked very, very nice …

halloween costume eyelashes

…but I knew I could do better. The lashes look awesome, but I want perfection, and the eyes just weren’t as open as I would have liked. I blame it on the white glow-in-the-dark strips of the eyelash – white eyelashes just have a way of closing your eyes like that. So I went ahead and applied the #003 Black lashes as a base lash. Like I said, it made a world of difference. (Photo will come later. Be patient.)

 

Lash #2: The under lash

I’ve said this before, but when you’re going all out with a dramatic costume look, you CAN’T FORGET YOUR UNDIES. If you’re going to go heavy with the makeup and lashes on top, PLEASE balance out the look with something on the bottom. I used #502 Black Under Lashes for my zombie eyes:

Elegant Lashes® #502 Black False Under Eyelash

If you normally can’t wear under lashes, Halloween is the perfect time to experiment with bottom falsies. The makeup’s crazy, and no one’s judging, so you may as well go crazy with the lashes, too!

Here’s what the eye looks like with just the base lash on top and the under lash on the bottom:

false under eyelashes and flared top fake eyelash

The under lashes on the bottom look awkward and heavy now, but it will balance out the top-heavy lashes when they come.

And here they come:

Lash #3: The costume lash… applied on the crease

halloween costume false eyelashes

Yay, perfection! Costume eyelashes are the perfect finishing touch to your Halloween costume, so make sure you’re applying them right! Otherwise, you’ll look sleepy, your eyes will feel tired and uncomfortable, and you won’t have a good time. :(

Follow these 2 tips to open up the eyes if you’re wearing heavy/colorful fake lashes for Halloween:

  1. Wear a base lash. I know I sound like a broken record, but… it really, really does make a world of difference, especially if you’re wearing lighter-colored lashes. The base lash truly opens up the eyes.
  2. Apply the large costume false eyelash on your CREASE, not on your natural lash line. Costume lashes are big and heavy, and they won’t feel comfortable when applied the same way that normal falsies are applied. This all has to do with leverage and physics. Place the heavier costume lashes further/higher from the lash line (I place my false lashes on my crease) to take the weight off the eyelid and also open up the eyes.

Final result:

Halloween costume eyelashes, zombie makeup look, black and white fake eyelashes

Here’s the zombie staring at the ground so you can see her awesome eyelashes better:

I think these black and white eyelashes will also work great with a skeleton look. :)

And since Halloween is more of a night-time occasion….. You can’t forget about the glow-in-the-dark part of the G234 “Glow Stixx” Glow in the Dark lashes:

Elegant Lashes® G234 “Glow Stixx” glow in the dark false eyelashes  in black light

This is Elegant Lashes® G234 “Glow Stixx” glow in the dark false eyelashes in black light. Aren’t they so awesome??

And here’s what they look like on a person:

Believe it or not, this photo is completely unedited (except for cropping) and was taken with one simple black light bulb in a dark room. Yeah, these glow in the dark eyelashes are that amazing. They look so awesome under black light. Perfect for if you’re going out dancing… X)

Another photo of the glow in the dark eyelashes in black light:

Shy zombie.

Just to set the record straight, you don’t need costume eyelashes to create a Halloween costume look. The zombie look can be achieved with non-costume lashes, also.

Here’s a top-down view of the same zombie makeup look, using only two eyelashes this time: #061 Black False Eyelash on top, and #502 Black Under Lashes on the bottom (both of them are 100% Human Hair).

Wow, I look particularly dead in that last photo.

Hope this inspired some of you to step out of your comfort zone and experiment with multiple lashes/under lashes/costume lashes. Remember, have fun with your looks – on Halloween, anything goes!
