Strip Lashes are one of the best inventions... so easy to pop on and really take your makeup up a step on the Glamour Richter Scale!
I've dabbled with Individual Lashes but never found the right ones - I always ended up putting too much extra strong glue on and they just became clumpy and horrible.
After watching a few of Lisa Eldridge's video I felt inspired to pick up the tweezers from scratch and give it another whirl. I choose to try Ardell's Individual Lashes in Medium from Boots for £5.49 - I absolutely love Ardell, after using their Demi Wispies I'll never flutter my lashes at another brand!
The pack contains 56 Medium Lashes, each knot contains around 5 natural looking lashes placed together. These don't come with glue so you need to remember to either pick some up or you can use some of your own. I keep meaning to buy some Duo Glue but for this I just used an old Naturalites Glue.
1 I carefully removed each lash with my fingers (if you use tweezers I found it can pull them apart)
2 Picking up with tweezers dab a tiny amount of glue on the end
3 Place in desired area and adjust using tweezers/finger
4 LET DRY
I applied a generous amount of mascara first of all and then used just 3 individual lashes on the outer of each eye. If you wanted thicker fuller lashes you can keep building them up. To finish off I went over the top of my liquid eyeliner again just to hide any glue showing.
Overall I liked these lashes. They are quite fiddly to apply and it takes a bit of getting used to but the finished look is natural and pretty. I think these are perfect for dates and garden parties but I would still choose Strip Lashes for a night out. Considering I only used 6 these are going to last a while so I think they're a great investment to keep in your makeup kit in case of a last minute invitation!
