FOTD Post! False Eyelashes for the Office? Yes, Why Not?

This is me, this morning before work. Makeup is done but I still have my dressing gown on! I gotta get dressed! Also, I want to apologize for the hair! It is in a claw clip because I have a hair appointment later today!

Without further ado, here is a breakdown of what cosmetics I am wearing:

On eyes:
Nars Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base
MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque on lower lids
MAC Shadows in Motif, Copperplate, Vanilla, and Crystal Avalanche
Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion (a solid black)
Ardell False Eyelashes ("Wispies)
Duo Adhesive (for applying lashes)
MAC Opulash Mascara in "Bad, Bad Black"
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Liner in 23L (on lower lash line)

On Brows:
My brows were tinted and waxed a couple of days ago but I am also wearing Anatasia Beverly Hills Brow Pen in "Universal Deep Shade" to give them a little extra definition.

On Skin:
Giorgio Armani Luminuous Silk Foundation in Shade 02
Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in Shade 4
MAC Contour Powder in Bone Beige
MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty
Giorgio Armani Lumious Silk Powder (to set everything)
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Porcelain Pink (applied on top of nose, cheeks, cupid's bow, and in center of forehead-to highlight)

On Lips:
Trish McEvoy "Flawless Lip"Primer
MAC Russian Red Lipstick
MAC Lip Pencil in Brick

On any given work day, I normally do not wear false eyelashes but this morning I felt inspired to wear them! I guess I was channeling my "inner diva!"  Here is how they look in the package:
And here is how they look upclose whilst on:
False eyelashes are amazing for nights out, photo shoots, special events, VLV and just because! They give eyes that "something extra" that our natural lashes may lack. My natural lashes are very fine and wispy but when I put falsies on, my lashes look full and lush!

Applying false eyelashes can seem like a daunting task at first but with some practice, they will become a snap! If you have no idea how to apply lashes, there are some amazing tutorials on YouTube. MAC Cosmetics used to have a great video tutorial on their site but it's no longer there.

I will do a lash tutorial for you all soon! I just need my husband's help taking pictures!

So, what makeup are you gals wearing today? And, how often do you wear false lashes?

    1. I had no idea Katy Perry had a lash line! I will have to check it out! I love Ardell and MAC. Make Up For Ever's Lash Bar is the best but so so expensive!

  10. To date, mens glasses make the most of this kind of scantiness and make all of their method to the highest ranking regarding men's favourite embellishment in one cerebrovascular event.
