Beauty ~ How to Apply Individual Eyelashes Without Using Permanent Adhesive

Individual Eyelashes

I'm moving away from strip eyelashes and trying out the flairs.  Actually, I used to wear them throughout my flight attendant career but I used a permanent adhesive to keep them on for 2 weeks.  Although I love the way the strip eyelashes make the eyes larger and more sultry, they tend to make me look too dramatic. I wanted a way to enhance my natural lashes without feeling like i'm purposely wearing them.

So I had to find a way to apply the individual eyelashes without making them a permanent fixture on my eyes.  Usually they are applied with a permanent adhesive and worn for up to 2 weeks, but I didn't like how they lifted and felt when they were getting old.  So I started applying them with various non-permanent adhesives to see how they held up.

Lookbook/Fashion ~ Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette with Neon Fitness Wear

Lookbook/Fashion ~ Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette with Neon Fitness Wear
I recorded a makeup tutorial for my YT channel using the new Urban Decay Vice 3 palette for the very first time.  There are so many vibrant colors it was hard to choose.  I decided to choose colors that would compliment the fitness wear I had on and I really wanted to keep the look subtle.  I feel my makeup looks are more age appropriate this way and i'm loving the Lancome Mascara which stretches out my eyelashes.  I will however still play in makeup and create dramatic looks with false eyelashes but I definitely won't be going out the house!

Nails ~ Zoya Miranda Pixi Dusk

In a way Zoya Pixi Dusk reminds me of glitter because it has to be soaked off as such.  Zoya has so many of these beautiful colors in a wide variety that guarantees there's something for everyone.  What I like most about these polishes is their staying power. There's rarely any polish chips which guarantees that my tips won't chip or crack while i'm wearing it.

 Pink Flamingo, Cherry Nectar & Wild Amarena

Using all the new products that I received from Gucci Cosmetics with a few other products to compliment the look, I feel that this look came out very subtle.  The colors aren't really that vibrant on me but I really like the the more subtle look!

Swatches ~ Gucci Pink Flamingo Eye Shadow Palette

 Gucci Pink Flamingo Eye Shadow Palette

 Gucci Pink Flamingo Eye Shadow Palette is a gorgeous blend of pinks, which includes two shimmers and two mattes.  This palette is also very similar to the Guerlain Les Roses palette that I have in my collection,  The colors are a very smooth velour but not that pigmented.
