I came across some of the coolest formulas and little 'additions' for making your lashes utterly fabulous this year.
Here's what topped my list:
Mascara: Chanel Le Volume de Chanel
Did Chanel REALLY surpass Armani in terms of a quality mascara? My answer is yes. The Volume de Chanel Mascara is, in my opinion, the best mascara Chanel has ever dreamed up. It not only lengthens and builds volume, it also 'curls' your lashes! Seriously, I can put this mascara on without curling first, and still end up with long, lush curly lashes.
Individual Lashes: MAKE UP FOR EVER Individual Lashes
These Make Up For Ever Individual Lashes have been a life saver! It takes a little practice, but adding individual lashes can become about the simplest thing in any given beauty routine. I've used a ton of these to open up clients eyes without the drama of a strip lash. They work beautifully and look totally natural. You can use them alone or with a little mascara. I highly recommend these babies.
Strip Lashes: VELOUR Mink False Lashes
This is a lovely way to add a little luxury without breaking the bank. What I love about Velour Lashes is that they're so light and comfortable! And, they don't cost an arm an a leg. Most mink lashes can run you in the hundreds of dollars (no, seriously). Plus, you can use these up to 25 times with proper care. And for those of you worried about the lovely little minks that these lashes came from... worry not; The hairs for these lashes come from the what the animals naturally shed when they are brushed.
That's it! Those are my top 'lash' picks for 2012. Ciao for now!
