The fabu-lash guide to fake lashes with Ardell beauty!

beauty

Get party prepped with our Fabu-lash ultimate guide to lashes… no matter your eye shape or favoured style @ardellbeauty_uk has something for everyone! Our go-to style is their Demi wispy lash – perfect for day and night! From lashionistas to falsie novices, anyone can wear lashes – trust us! Get clued up on the best ways to apply & let’s find out what lash styles will suit you…

 


ALMOND EYES

Your eye shape is almond if you have a visible crease in the lid and there is no white above or below the iris. Lucky you! Your eyes are a good shape for lashes because your eye has a subtle curve for them to sit on top of. Because of this, almond eyes will likely suit any lashes, but we think these styles will tickle your falsie fancy and here’s why.

Ardell Natural 105s, £5.49, Superdrug – A long, fluttery and lightweight silhouette that will open up your almond eyes and make them seem bigger. This style is also super adaptable so you could wear it to any occasion.

Ardell Demi Wispies, £5.49, Superdrug (Worn above & our fave style) – Ardell’s bestselling lash style has a graduated, mixed length that will accentuate the almond shape of your eyes. Wear them anytime as these can take you effortlessly from day to night.

NEW Ardell Faux Mink 811 Twin Pack, £10.99, Boots – These lashes have a flare on the outer corner which will elongate your almond eyes. This style is also available as a single, but now you can get two lashes for just over the price of one!

 

 


 

HOODED EYES

These eyes are determined by a deep crease that disappears above and behind the eye. Lashes can be tricky to navigate with hooded eyelids because of the ‘hood’ lid that hangs over the eye, but you don’t have to be afraid of wearing them! These styles will get you lash-worthy in no time.

NEW Ardell Natural 174s, £5.49, Boots – This new style has tapered lashes which will complement the hood of your eye because they are soft and delicate. They’ll also add a subtle boost to your own lashes in length and volume.

Ardell Wispies, £5.49, Boots – This classic Ardell lash style has an elongated centre that will act like a sidekick for your hooded lid. They’re a go- to lash because they’re perfect for both everyday wear and special occasions.

Ardell Wispies 601, £5.49, Superdrug – Try this style with a mix of long and short clusters to open up the hood of your eye like an optical illusion. You can add them to a dramatic and glamourous winged eyeliner for maximum effect

 

 


 

ROUND EYES

Your eyes are round if you have a crease but there is a hint of white above and below the iris. You will also notice they are more circular than they are oval. Your round eyes are rare and enchanting but steer clear of full lashes as this could overwhelm them and look too busy. Why not try these delicate Ardell lashes instead?

Ardell x Danny, £5.49, Superdrug – These lashes are perfect for creating a subtle and natural look. They’ll really suit your round eyes because the gentle flare in the middle of the lash will emphasise their circular shape.

Ardell Wispies 113, £5.49, Boots – The 113s are super long which will compliment your round eye shape because they open them up. Whether you’re working 9 to 5, or going on a date, these lashes will make your eyes stand out.

Ardell Faux Mink Demi Wispies, £7.99, Boots – To really flatter your round eyes, try wearing the Faux Mink Demi Wispies. The feathered effect on the outer edge of these lashes will enhance the curve of your top lid.

 


 

MONO-LID EYES

You have ‘mono lids’ if you do not have a crease in your eye lid. These eyes can differ in size, but the good news is lashes are going to look stunning on you because the mono lid creates a blank canvas. Not sure where to start? Not to worry – we think you’re going to fall in love with these styles and we’ll tell you why.

Ardell Pre-Cut Demi Wispies, £6.49, Superdrug – Ardell’s Pre-Cut Demi Wispies are perfect for mono lids because you can tailor them. Make sure you strategically place the sections of lash in positions that will allow everyone to see your flawless lids.

Ardell Wispies 701s, £5.49, Superdrug – Allow your mono lid to be seen with this style. The mix of long and short lashes will open up the eye and add definition to the outer corners.

Ardell Mega Volume 251, RRP: £7.49, Superdrug – This full and voluminous style will benefit your mono lid eyes because they will flaunt your flawless lids and add drama to any!

DO’s & DON’Ts – Applying lashes

Have questions about how to apply your lashes now you’ve selected a style? Check out these DOs and DON’Ts for perfect eyelash application. Explained in the order that you would apply your lashes on.

DON’T – forget to curl your own lashes beforehand otherwise there will be a disconnect, especially if your lashes naturally point downward.

DO – trim your lashes to fit the size of your eyes. Measure them on top of your own lashes and trim from the outer edge until they fit the length of the eye perfectly.

DON’T – add lashes onto bare lashes – add mascara beforehand and wait for it to dry. This will mean that the black false lashes blend in with your own lashes.

DON’T – add too much glue to the strip and wait thirty seconds for it to go tacky so that it will stick better. If you are using DUO Quick Set Glue in Dark or Clear (Superdrug, RRP: £5.99) you will only need to wait five seconds!

DO – add the lashes pointing upwards instead of face on for maximum effect. You will notice a difference when you tilt the strip upwards when applying to your lash line.

Have you been waiting for that smudge-proof #mascara since forever? Well we’ve found it for you, and guess what it curls like a dream and comes clean off with absolutely NO staining whatsoever! Look no further than @poppysloane #TresChic mascara!

Unlike traditional mascara that coat the eyelashes Tres Chic is a tubing mascara so “wraps” the product around each lash creating a waterproof tube. Ironically even though it is waterproof it only needs a slight pressure to break the bonds and remove the mascara with warm water and a face cloth or Q tip leaving no smears, smudges or panda eyes. (It went a tad crumbly upon removal but left bare non stained lashes so we can for-go this!)

The smaller tube neck also measures out less product (but the right amount) to give you the perfectly full and fluttery lash that you’ve always been waiting for with the bonus of also being Vegan for those that want it!

Get the ultimate multi-dimensional lashes perfect for lift, in triple thicknesses with extreme volume and curl with Kiss Triple Push-Up lashes, £7.99. They are tapered to give you a super full yet fluttery look combining three styles into one lash set, with a super structured lash band too. The lashes are proving popular already – Cardi B wore them herself to the 2018 Mat Gala! Buy them in Superdrug stores nationwide or online at superdrug.com

I also took a trip to search out a new foundation. Souring the beauty counters of Debenhams and John Lewis to find a matte or semi-matte finish and a shade that doesn’t take fair skin to orange tinged levels as it really doesn’t look good on most let alone a ginger! I finally found a really helpful counter assistant who took her time to really match my skin, and introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Liquid Foundation, £35. The coverage is seamless and can be built up depending on your preferred coverage. I really love the fact that I can wear this lighter as well as full coverage – taking my look from day-to-night without changing product. (Plus you don’t need a primer either!)

Buy yours online or in-store at John Lewis and online at LookFantastic.com
