I did my hair + makeup trial on Saturday and wanted to give my input thus far on what I thought.
- they look amazing, BUT.. they take getting used to and the glue can be a little uncomfortable if there is a clump
- They are individually applied and CAN last up to two weeks, mine are holidng up OK 5 days later
- Having to keep from blinking while they’re being applied is hard ( duh), but having a small fan blowing in your direction helps them dry faster and keep your eyes from getting too watery
- invest in eye makeup remover and do not try to use just soap + water to remove makeup once they’re on. I definitely should’ve listened on that one!
- I did an organic spray tan applied by an airbrush type machine by the same lady who did my lashes, and I normally have very adverse reactions to ANY type of chemicals, but this is seriously the best ever! No waxes or preservatives to irritate your skin
- Do not wear anything that the bronzer from the tan could rub off on ( jeans, white clothing, white bras)
- Do not wash it off that day at all. They say to wait 8-12 hours, but honestly.. I would wait longer so you maximize the tan
- If you do not normally do a spray tan, I would definitely do a trial before your big day. I was changing colors like a crazy person all day as it darkened, so next time I will let her know we need to tone it down a bit
- if you have sensitive skin/need a lot of coverage/ are afraid of products breaking you out, TRY this! Seriously, I have very acne prone, dry, flaky/oily combo skin and the airbrush was amazing and did not break me out
- It holds up so well, I had it done Sat morning, and by Sat night when we went out for St Pattys day I was STILL getting compliments on it, even after I had been rained on and taken a nap!
- we used a mineral powder/bronzer over it and the coverage was as flawless as my skin can get. I had a massive breakout the night before, and it covered 99.9% of the problem areas
- Make sure your MUA doesn’t forget the neck, chest areas to put a little coverage on. It makes a difference and gives you the “seamless” look so that you’re not having lines
Here are a few pics:
This one shows the lashes a little better…
This shows the look as a whole with the airbrush/bronzer:
This shows the depth of the lashes, you can opt to have them thicker/thinner depending on your eye shape and preference:
This was me by the end of the night… 8+ hours later, after the rain, a nap and being out:
Hope this helps! I know there are a lot of reviews out there… but if you’re contemplating doing any of those things this may give you more info!
