FOTD – Coral Lips and Big Lashes | The Cupid Bow

1459845_10151778184205172_981621140_nBig hair. Big lashes. That is how I do. This is actually my look from last weekend but only just had the chance to upload it, but as you can see there is a whole lotta BIG in this look. I was on the way to paint the town red with my gals and we were all done up to the 9s. I’d never experienced using individual lashes before, only strips, but after seeing makeup artists create some beautiful looks with them on YouTube and Instagram, I decided to have a go at applying them to my bottom lashes to create the feathery effect. The end result was very dramatic… But then I am dramatic ๐Ÿ™‚


To apply the eyelashes, you need a good pair of tweezers, and a lot of patience. You don’t want to be doing this as you’e rushing out the door! With a dramatic winged liner and a few coats of mascara on your top lashes, you won’t need much else. Keep this look simple and clean and let the lashes do the talking! The products I used for this look are below:

Benefit ย The Porefessional Primer
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Warm Beige 3.5
Sleek Luminous Pressed Powder
Rimmel Natural Bronzer all over face
Benefit Hoola to contour cheeks and down the side of the nose
MAC Prep and Prime Highlight in Light Boost down nose, across forehead, along cupid bow and chin
MAC Springsheen Blushes
Benefit Brow Zings in dark
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Natural to prime eyelids
‘Foxy’ on lid and brow bone and ‘Tease’ in cut crease from the Urbay Decay Naked 2 Palette
Maybelline Gel Liner in Black along upper lash line
Rimmel White Eyeliner along waterline
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
MAC Costa Chic Lipstick
Eyelure Fake Lashes on top (can’t remember which ones, apologies!)
Ardell Individual Lashes on bottom
