    Mascara Alert: Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes

    In case you haven’t noticed, ultra-lush lashes are a big trend for summer, spotted on celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Rihanna. To achieve the look, get your hands on the latest mascara from Lancôme.

    It’s not coming out until mid-August, but Hypnôse Doll Lashes ($31) is worth waiting for. I’ve been wearing it all week and I’m loving it so far.

    We already knew Hypnôse was great but the new Doll Lashes version is even more lengthening. It really separates the lashes and coats them with a thick, black, nylon-effect finish. Think of your favourite dolls as a kid. They always had fabulous lashes and with Doll Eyes, you can, too.

    False Lash Tips? Loves!

    I know this extra close-up shot of my eyeball is a little on the creepy side, but it’s the only way I can show you how awesome these lash tips are. I received a couple of pairs of false eyelash tips from a makeup artist pal and she assured me they’d be easy to apply and I’d love them. She was right.

    These eyelashes are just the tips for the outer corner of the eye rather than an entire strip (so they’re a little less than half the length of full false lashes). They seamlessly blend into the lash line and they actually look natural. Plus, they’re easy to apply. Just grab a thin brush and dip it into the tube of lash glue. Line the false lash with a thin layer of glue, wait 5 seconds for the glue to thicken just a touch then apply it to the outer corner of your eye, as close to the lash line as possible. Then line your eye with liner and you won’t even be able to tell the tips are fake. I’ve been wearing them for the last couple of days and no one has noticed they aren’t real but they have noticed how awesome they look.

    It totally looks like they’re part of my eyelashes and they’re just subtle enough to look natural.  As long as the outer corner of your eyelashes looks long, the entire lash looks fuller and longer. My favourite lash glue is from MAC and I also like the Ardell glue (available at local pharmacies). Those two brands also make the best false lashes at all different price points so you’re sure to find a set that works for you.

    My New Obsession: Ardell False Lashes

    I have probably had more difficulty than anyone in the world when it comes to putting on false lashes. I have had incidents which involved getting glue and lash particles all over the place–except where they belong. But after a little practice and determination, I have finally mastered the art of applying false lashes and am now addicted. (Keep reading to get a few tips on how to apply them yourself.)

    The lashes I have been wearing are from Ardell. These lashes are available for a few bucks at most pharmacies and the glue (sold separately) is also a few dollars. Each pair of lashes lasts up to 30 wears. You just peel off the strip of glue when you remove the lashes and they’re ready for the next use. As you can see in my photo above, the lashes don’t look incredibly fake but they do look luscious and defined. I don’t have a stitch of mascara on in that pic, either.

    The lashes I am currently using are #107, which is a very full, glam pair for nights out. They’re perfect and didn’t even need to be trimmed. What I like about the lashes is that they are made from 100% human hair so the look is as natural as can be. Plus, the glue is very lightweight so you don’t feel pressure on your eyelids (as some synthetic lashes and glues can do–and it’s very uncomfortable). Once I finally mastered the art of eyelash application, I became an addict and I think you might, too.

    The best part? The lashes look as gorgeous as my eyelash extensions which I tried out a while back (pictured below). I totally loved them while I had them but they’re not practical to keep up in the long term. Eyelash extensions are really quite expensive and Ardell False Lashes are incredibly affordable so you can actually get the same look, for way, way less.

    Still think false lashes are out of your league? Follow my tips below and with a little practice (and patience) you’ll be a pro soon enough.

    How to apply false lashes:
    - Before applying glue, hold the lashes against the base of your natural lash line to make sure the length is suitable
    - Apply glue and wait about 15 seconds for it to get a little tacky
    - Apply the lashes starting from the inner corner of the eye, where your natural lash line begins
    - Slowly pat the lash down against the lash line (as close as possible) until you reach the end
    - Press it down gently and hold for about 10 seconds, until the glue sticks 100%
    - Apply your makeup and eyeliner before you judge the lashes because it makes a huge difference
    - Eyeliner is a great way to cover up any glue particles
    - If you’re all thumbs, try applying the lashes with tweezers
    - Don’t ever assume only a makeup artist can do something for you. With enough practice, you can learn how to perfect anything.

    Good luck!

    Tweezerman and Benefit are teaming up

    Tweezerman? Good. Benefit? Good. The two together? Amazing! The two brands have teamed up to create the ultimate in beauty tools.

    The Tweezerman for Benefit collection consists of four brow and lash tools that every girl needs. There’s an Eyelash Curler ($28 – pictured), a Brow Shaping Brush ($17), a Slant Tweezer ($32 – pictured) and a Pointed Slant Tweezer ($42) for hard-to-reach hairs.

    I already own a Tweezerman eyelash curler and a pair of slant tweezers. They’re amazing. The quality is incredible and even though they cost a little more than other brands, they last way longer. So you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

    If you want to get your hands on these, you can check out select Holt Renfrew stores this month. In May, the Tweezerman for Benefit collection will make its way to Murale and Pharamaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart stores across the country.
