How to make Snow Queen Lashes by Karla Powell 

1. Paint cheap lashes in a white base. I used Kryolan Shimmering Event Foundation in ‘Pearl’

2. Using Syntho SS011 CrownbrushBrush apply a loose powder base evenly to add a shine and set the base of the lashes with Kryolan in Living Color Pigment in ‘Rosé Quartz’.

3. Using Sprit gum loosely as a sticky base, gently layer over the lashes and add Lime Crime Zodiac Glitter ‘Virgo’ to the tips of the lashes (this acts as a snow effect) Finish off with sprinkle of Kryolan Polyester Glimmer in ‘Pearl Lilac’.

4. Finally with more spirit gum applied in random areas of the lashes , sprinkle Nail Art Beads & Large glitter pieces (both from an art shop!) over the lashes!

Hope you are inspired! Please tag me f you try and re create them. 




Shu Uemura “Pink Princess” Look (6 Heart Princess Collection)

This is a super-girly look! I’m not one to wear these tones usually, but when you look at that palette and those lashes, they’re just BEGGING for a candy-ish look. 

The way to make it look a bit more grown-up and sophisticated is by using a little brown liner and a sharp flick. (If you don’t add some darkness along the lashes, pink can make the lids look puffy or swollen sometimes!)

Products used: All Shu Uemura unless stated otherwise!

Lightbulb Foundation - I wanted a glow to the skin, so I used a dewy foundation and minimal powder

6 Heart Princess “heart-full pink parallel palette”

Princess Love in Wink lashes - LOVE this design…

Brown Lasting Soft Gel Liner

No7 Precision Lip Liner in Nude

Gloss Unlimited PK 30 S

Despite all the copper and orange and pink, this palette is surprisingly flattering. Just make sure you balance out the pink with a little pale yellow/ivory, and add a little of the deeper colors to the lash line or socket to add some definition.

Sometimes all you need is a simple winged out eyeliner and a great pair of lashes!
I snapped a quick shot of my eye on my mobile to show you the lashes I’m sporting today.
These lashes are by eldora. They are the H114 full strip-lash set, but I cut them in the centre and placed the smallest section on the outer half of my eyelids.
I absolutely love a winged liner and matching winged-out lashes!!
I used maybelline gel liner in brown to line my top lid.

HOW TO: Applying False Eyelashes

Learning to apply lashes can be a difficult task for beginners, so today I’m going to tell you a few tips on how to apply them quickly and easily.

  1. Don’t get discouraged. It can take many attempts before you’ll be able to put them on successfully. Visit your local beauty store and get a few pairs of the cheap kinds- since these will be just for practice.
  2. Make sure you use a good lash glue. Clear or colored lash glues generally work the best.
  3. Cut your lashes to the right size for your eyes! I cannot stress this enough. Your lashes should never go past the end of your eyelids.
  4. Put mascara on. You want to do this before you apply false lashes so they blend better.
  5. Apply some of the lash glue onto a q-tip, then run your lash over the glue. Sometimes, trying to put glue directly onto the lash can be a bit messy. Wait 10-20 seconds for the glue to get tacky.
  6. Use either your fingers or tweezers to place them as close to your lash line as possible. It’s okay if it’s not exact.
  7. Get a damp q-tip and use it to push your lash into place. Slightly damp q-tips will allow you to get it exactly where you want it without them sticking to you.
  8. Use tweezers to pinch them onto your natural lash line. Be very careful that you don’t accidentally pinch your own lid or rip out an eyelash. I recommend slanted tweezers for this.
  9. Let them dry and adjust to how they feel. False lashes can feel weird the first  time you wear them, so make sure you give yourself time to get used to it.
  10. Practice. You probably wont get it right the first time, but that’s okay. Just be patient and you’ll get the hang of it.

Once you’ve learned how to apply them, I recommend using good quality lashes such as the ones by Ardelle or Andrea. For glue, Duo is always a good brand- though any clear glue will do just fine.

Good luck!
