Ladies, let’s talk about lashes. We all want full, flirty eyelashes, but few of us are blessed with them naturally. Long, voluminous eyelashes are super feminine and really open up your eyes. Over the years, false eyelashes have been a great way to make up for what Mother Nature didn’t bless us with, and what mascara alone can’t compensate for. For many women a full strip of eyelashes is the way to go, but some just like a few individual flares in the corner. Flares are a great way to add some volume and length without looking too dramatic. As a professional Makeup Artist, I often get asked to apply individual lashes in the corner as an alternative to a full strip. To be honest, I used to pretend that I didn’t know how to apply them because I found it too time consuming (don’t judge me). The process of applying flares took way longer than applying a strip lash, so I did everything that I could to get out of it…until now! I recently found a product that rocked my world, and made the request of individual lashes way more bearable for me. iENVY by Kiss has created a brilliant product called Trio Lash, each trio = 3 flares so it speeds up application time exponentially. Trio Lashes have cut my application time down from several minutes, to literally a few seconds! Since they are so small and light, there’s practically no waiting time for the glue to get tacky (like you would have with a full lash strip). What I like best is that each package contains two different lengths of trios, so that you can customize your look – and the packaging even has a glue pocket compartment for you to squeeze out some adhesive into (brilliant). There have not been many eyelash innovations over the years, so whoever came up with this idea is a genius!
Lipstick mistakes happen. But you might be creating more cleanup work than necessary. If you get some lipstick outside of your lipline, you probably use a Q-tip or tissue and drag it along the perimeter of your lips. Instead, drag it from the smudged area back into the lips. You’ll have to fill in the missing section of lipstick you’ve now created, but you avoid rubbing lipstick into the skin and staining it like in the first method. Plus, you won’t compromise a crisp lipline. Give it a try!
