Do You Use Eyelash Curlers?

So today the questions is : ” Do you use Eyelash Curlers”? Do you see any results? Why did you start using them? What brand do you use?

I know that the best eyelash curlers are by shu uemura ($19 in USA). Do you have those? Now I think about buying it for myself. I can see that almost all Make-up Artists use them and they say it’s a miracle what they do with the lashes.

The reason why I still don’t have them?! I have some  cheap eyelash curlers (got them for about 5 Euros) and they don’t do anything or at least I don’t see any results. So I am hesitating about getting shue’s.  Do you think that eyelash curler is an essential  item  or just a waste of money?

Love It: Shu Uemura Ethnocolor Scope Tokyo Lash Bar Collection

Shu Uemura lash bars are always a big inspiration to me. I really loved their last collection and I also like the new one.

The promo image  is so amazing, I am totally in love with the bright colours and the gorgeous lashes. I think Kakuyasu Uchiide did an amazing job with this collection as per usual.

You can see the lashes from this collection on the photo below and they are called:

Ethnic Charm, the beautiful lashes with colourful beads that are used on the model, Mini Fringe (red), Vibrant Partial eye lashes (the striped colourful lashes), Green Folklore (green and yellow), Tribal Patch(inspired by a patchwork design),  Mini Violet (purple and lilac mini lashes with flowers), Oriental Arch and

As you know, I have a rule, when top Make-Up Artists rave – I listen and get the product they are singing praises to. This is why I have no idea what took me so long to buy shu uemura eye lash curlers.

My only excuse can be the fact that I had some cheap ones which did not really perform the way I’d love them too so I thought there was no need to buy expensive ones, too.

But, oh boy, I am so glad that I finally got the shu’s curlers! They are absolutely brilliant. I have to say that I’ve been using them for less than a week so far but I can already see that it will be a long-time relationships!

So how they perform?

Now I can see why

Eye Lash Makeup Routine: From Curlers to Top Coat

I’m not gonna lie, I am super jealous when I see girls with long, thick lashes…Unfortunately, it is not the case with mine. It could be worse, so I should not complain really.

But there are certain things I can do about it. I have never tried lash extensions for some reason and wearing false lashes every day is not an option, for me at least.

So here are the products that I use to get a make my lashes look decent:

First of all, I curl my lashes with shu uemura lash curlers, they open up the eyes and the curl lasts all day long. It is a great investment.

Then I use a lash primer, currently it’s Urban Decay’s Eyelash Primer Potion, it adds some length and volume without making the lashes look clumpy.

Next step is mascara – black Diorshow New Look or

January 2013 Beauty Favourites

I used to write about my monthly favourites back in 2009, I think, but somehow stopped doing that. So I thought why not giving it another go in 2013?

So here is the list of my January 2013 Favourites and this time I’ve chosen only makeup, not to make a huge list. But next time I will probably add some of my beauty favourites, too. What do you think?

So here we go…

Lips

If I could choose only one favourite product of January – that would be Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily which is now my favourite lip gloss!  It is  hydrating, smoothing and looks  beautiful on the lips. And it smells delicious, too.

Face

Another product from Clarins would be their Beauty Flash Balm which is a must have for me in winter months, it makes my face look polished and brings back the glow. I also like how the foundation applies afterwards.

Speaking of foundation –  my top pick would be Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer Sketches on Water. If you have dry skin, I would totally recommend, it blends into the skin and
