Coloured eyelashes — a sublime or ridiculous fashion invention?
False eyelashes have been around for some time now, but recently they have become the element that gives a touch of refinement to any type of make-up. However, being stylish is not enough! Extravagant is the word of the day! And what is more extravagant than a pair of feather-like coloured eyelashes?
If you have already learned how to do a proper job of applying your false eyelashes, you can be more daring and use other dazzling make-up techniques — like crystals, flakes or coloured eyelashes. However, pay close attention! These extravagant eyelashes are appropriate for an atypical party or a special night out with the girls. Do not wear them to any other occasions, especially during the day. Picture yourself wearing long, pink, dolly-like eyelashes at your office, while attending a meeting or even worse when meeting your future in-laws. In the world of fashion the line between sublime and ridiculous is extremely narrow. Always keep in mind that you are neither Madonna nor Lady Gaga and you are not going to perform on any scene. It is better to ask your beautician's advice before having applied the coloured eyelashes.
Coloured eyelashes do not require a special applying technique different from the one used for applying less unconventional false eyelashes. Coloured eyelashes can be applied with the help of a pair of tweezers, by using the special adhesive in the eyelash kit. You can also buy a special adhesive, harmless to the skin, if you are allergic to the adhesive in the kit. If you want to obtain a ravishing but very stylish look, you can combine black and purple coloured eyelashes. This combination can be used at a party, in the club or during a photo session so as to give the glitter that will turn you from an anonymous face into the focal point of the event.
However, there is more out there than just a pair of blue coloured eyelashes. The real extravagant coloured eyelashes are those having multiple accessories and strange shapes. Divas must have in their make-up kit false eyelashes accessorised with fuzz, pearls, glitter, shiny crystals and even with the famous Swarovski crystals.
Although they are uncommon and at first glance might seem ridiculous, remember that their uniqueness depends on the occasion to which are worn. Thus, for New Year's Eve, every woman should afford a little extravagance and feel like the fashion icons in every glossy magazine. So, why not buy a pair of coloured eyelashes and your eyes will never be forgotten. The most fashionable colours this year are purple, green and blue.
Halloween is also the perfect time to wear these unconventional eyelashes. There are lots of shapes and colours on the market to match any type of costume. Do you want the informal look? Then use the white or pink coloured dolly eyelashes. A beautiful yet powerful witch? Then the brown or black coloured eyelashes are a must. Looking for more extravagance? Feather-like eyelashes are just a stone's throw away in beauty shops or on cosmetic specialty websites.
Cosmetic producers have not forgotten the brides. For them, they have created long, white, silvery lashes, lashes with stars or white feather lashes.
Blue metallic lashes, bright pink lashes, rainbow or neon coloured eyelashes are just perfect for parties, scene performances, concerts and fancy dress parties.
Coloured eyelashes are amazing, as long as you wear them at the right time and to right event. Never forget: there is only a small step from sublime to ridiculous.
