An Expert Lesson in Lashes with Louise Page

A few weeks ago I attended an Ardell lashes event hosted in conjunction with Louise Page International Celebrity Make Up Artist. It was a great night for all concerned I love Ardell lashes and it was a great to meet Louise and her team.

We all got to have lashes applied and Louise talked about the best way to apply lashes to yourself.

Here are her top tips!!

1.Measure
Before you do anything measure the lashes against your eye and trim to fit.
2.Mould
Give the lashes a little bend gently with your fingers-the idea is that by moulding them you make them more pliable and easier to put on.
3.Glue
Use a tooth pick to apply to glue so as not too load the lashes up too much-just a fine line along the strip is all you need.
4.WAIT!
The crucial part…wait 10-30 seconds for the glue to go tacky. This will make them stick instantly rather than slipping up your eyelid.
5.Look Up
Yes up-not down, by looking up into a mirror you’re more likely to get as close to your natural lash line as physically possible.
6.Apply
Press the lashes down from the outer corner inwards-this will ensure a better fit.
7.Make-up
Apply your make-up following lash application to blend everything in.

False lashes are a staple in most girl’s make-up bags these days, with no night-out look complete without a pair. However application can be easier said than done-(especially with the customary getting ready glass of wine in hand!) Often lashes are left till last and result in gluing fingers together-ruining pristinely applied make-up or just a last minute stress.
Luckily renowned make-up artist Lou Page has now shared the secret of that flawless finish, dispelling many common myths-make-up first/look down.?! Lou rates the Ardell lashes for easy application and with her top tips you’ll be a pro in no time . With Ardell’s huge range you’ll find styles for night and daytime looks and at £5.10 a pair and the notion that practice makes perfect there’s no excuse not to stock up!
