Fashion Forward day 2 or madness, as I would like to call it, was the busiest day out of the four days of fashion business. You can see what I wore and read about day 2 here. This makeup look is pretty exciting for me because I have dared to wear false lashes for the very first time!
I've kept the same base as day one - like I will during the four days - as well as lips. You can check them out here.
The real star of this FOTD are my eyes. After priming them, I used MAC products to create the look. 1. All That Glitters eyeshadow dusted all over the lid. 2. Satin top in the outer corner, blended into the crease and and the lower lash line. 3. A dot of Carbon eyeshadow in the outer v corner. 4. Brule eyeshadow on the brow bone. 5. Blacktrack fluidline on the top lash line (not pictured) . 6. Maybelline the Colossal mascara on top and lower lashes.
This is such a simple Tanya Burr look. For those of you who watch her videos, you'll get what I mean ;)
And to add the cherry on top, FALSIES! I know, I'm a makeup nerd and I've never worn false eyelashes before. Shame. I used the very well-known in the Middle East, Huda Beauty lashes in Giselle. These are so damn dramatic, it's not even funny. As a falsies newbie, here's what I thought about false lashes: 1. they felt a bit heavy at first. 2. I could actually see my lashes and felt like a butterfly, haha! You would understand once you try on heavy lashes for the first time, I guess. 3. They instantly give you a face lift. Magic! 4. They enhance the whole look and make you look and feel beautiful. Again, magic!
These lashes in particular are pretty long and full - and probably not the most natural looking lashes out there. But they would be great for an almost natural lash look by night.
Since they felt heavy at first, I had a huge headache from 4pm to 12pm as I got the flu on that day (sorry fashion forward people, you probably all got sick because of me). Note to self: do not wear false lashes when sick.
Have you ever tried false lashes before? Would love to know which ones are your favourite and what was your first impression and experience with falsies.
