THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THICK FLUTTERY LASHES.


"I like my skin to look flawless, glowy and natural and my lashes to look full, thick and fluttery. I really do believe this is the winning combination".

There are two main things I focus on when doing my makeup. My base and my lashes. If you get these two right, then your makeup is almost always going to look good. 

I remember applying to much mascara, having long spider leg type lashes and my face being three shades darker than my neck. Those days are long gone. As I've grown older, I have discovered more of what I really want out of my makeup. What I want to emphasise and what I need to play down, what works for me and what doesn't. 

At 20 something years of age, I am finally understanding that 10 layers of mascara does not work for me, in fact, it leaves me looking like my 16-year-old self. However, I know that a coat or two of my favourite mascara, a good eyelash curler and a natural yet wispy pair of lashes, can completely make my makeup look.

So, Here is my, ultimate guide to thick and fluttery lashes.




L'OREAL Volume Million Lashes Mascara So Couture, My lashes have dramatically changed over the years. I use to be able to wear any old mascara and they pretty much looked long and fluttery. However, these days I have to work a lot harder to create the look. When I originally tried this mascara I hated it, at that time it wasn't what I wanted. As of recent, I have been focusing much more on getting a lot of volume at the root of my lash, and since then, my lash game is completely changed. Instead of layering, coat after coat. I hold the mascara wand into the root of my lash, gently wiggling the brush side to side to build up the volume (just in the root) and seriously it has made my eyelashes appear so much thicker. I also find because I am only running the brush through the ends of my lashes once or twice, my lashes look fluttery and full but without any clumps. So being as the way I apply my mascara has changed, so has my taste in mascaras. This mascara has been my holy grail for the past few months. I'd recommend playing around with it a little before completely writing it off like I originally did. I am thinking of trying a few of the other Mascaras in this line.
If mascara doesn't quite cut it for you, then fake it till you make it! I don't tend to wear eyelashes that often anymore, but if I do I like them to be thick, fluttery yet natural. I prefer lashes without a band but I have different shapes and styles to show you. Two with bands and two without.


The first set of lashes are Red Cherry Lashes Style Wispy, I got sent this pair from Falseeyelashes.co.uk and seriously they had such a dreamy collection of lashes. However, I was just drawn to this pair. I must admit this pair is my favourite of the bunch. They are fluttery and natural and because they are band-free, they are flexible and mould to the eye seamlessly. They look very natural and full at the same time. These are my new favourite lashes! I'm a sucker for a wispy lash! They retail for £3.99, which is amazing! They go on smoothly and can easily be re-used, so I feel like your really getting your money's worth.


The second set of lashes are Red Cherry Lashes Style Molla, these were also sent to me from Falseeyelashes.co.uk. Luckily they let me pick two pairs of lashes that I would like.  Immediately after seeing this set, I just had to have them. I was convinced these would be my new go to lashes. Hmm, ok so they are gorgeous and easy to apply, but they were a little less flexible than the first pair making it the slightest and I mean the slightest bit harder to apply. However, I would repurchase these as they do look gorgeous, but I can't deny that the first pair of lashes were my fave. These lashes cost £3.99, which is really reasonably priced.

  
The third set of lashes are from Threads Beauty Style Charleston, these lashes and the 4th pair were both sent to me from Threads Beauty. This particular pair were the hardest to apply. I think these lashes would blend better if I wore eyeliner with them because the band is quite thick and noticeable. I found this particular set to be quite plasticky and not very flexible at all. However, if you are patient and are happy to play around with them, then they can look lovely, but it certainly was a little bit of a faff trying to get this style on. If you're a pro with lashes, it won't be a problem. These lashes retail at £9.00.


These are the last set of lashes and were sent to me from Threads Beauty, These were my second favourite pair. Whilst they are certainly still a little more faffy to apply, they do look beautiful when they are on. Also, although the band is still quite thick, I managed to wear them without eyeliner and they still looked seamless. For me, I like my lashes to be long, thick and fluttery, whilst still looking natural and these lashes did exactly that. They retail at £9.00, which I do think is a little steep, for that kind of money I want a pair of mink lashes that are re-usable. 

Also if you do like mink lashes then check out my friend's lashes Dollgoals she has so many beautiful lashes to choose from. She has everything from natural and wispy, to bold and beautiful

I hope you've enjoyed this post, let me know what makes your eyelashes stand out? Is it a good mascara? or a set of lashes? Leave your answers in the comments below.

  9. I didn't even know you could get band free lashes. I have small eyes so I think I need band free so they look more natural. Those Red Cherry Wispy lashes are definitely on my list to buy now, they look amazing on you!

  10. I was totally the same when I was younger. I use to apply and apply. Actually I use to apply enough but still would let it dry and then apply more. That's where I realised I couldn't actually live without mascara because I thought that looked good, but obviously the whole 'what looks good' has changed since! I'm trying to get myself back into lashes as I use to love them, however I am pretty lucky with the length of my natural lashes and I don't want to ruin them with applying false lashes all the time! Loved this read hun, I will be looking at this mascara next time! <3

    1. Yes thats exactly what I would do. I agree the style of makeup has changed dramatically since I originally started applying it! I'm the same, naturally my lashes are fairly long but I like to test out lashes once in a while if I want a more dramatic look xx

  22. What a beautiful post Stacey! I mean, look at you - you're an absolute babe! Speaking of lashes, the older I get - the more I hate mascara. I don't like removing it, I have a hard time finding one that works. I really love Tarteist by Tarte though - this is my HG now. And sometimes I find it is easier for me to add a bunch of individual lashes, rather than wear mascara! xx
