This Thursday I was privileged to be invited to the celebration of 45 years of Ardell lashes which also was the premiere launch of their brand new Press-on lashes (what better way to celebrate right!?)
I'll be honest when it comes to putting on fake eyelashes... I'm rubbish..pants..absolute doo doo, usually I have to get one of my girls to put on for me, I've tried to do it myself once and somehow the eyelashes ended up on my eyebrows..I kid you not! So for years I've decided that I'm just not about that fake lashes life and been abusing whichever mascara would give me that false lash look.
The #Ardell45 launch was nothing short of amazing! It's Hollywood theme paid homage to the birth of the Ardell brand which started in Hollywood to help us ladies look fantabulous and red-carpet ready! The chic and glamorous feel was something set from the onset of the event, greeted by cocktails and amazing nibbles which included the best mini-burger I have tasted in my life I swear to you I was tempted to go to the kitchen and hug the chef...it was that good!
Ardell lashes are infamous not only with make-up artists, celebrities and regular folk as they are made with natural hair yes..you read correctly, and they have a plethora of lashes to fit in with your individual needs or looks for the night..or day!
The Press-on lashes are perfect for those who like me are a complete novice to applying lashes, as the lashes are pre-glued with a patented applicator which allow you simply to apply it to your eyes, the lashes are flexible to make application ten times easier and within seconds you simply push them down and you are good to go!!
There is no glue, no mess, no long instructions, no rage!!! Once my lashes were applied I was amazed at the difference the Wispies made to my eyes! I went in to the event looking like Delia-Rene and left feeling like Beyonce. The lashes are unbelievably light so you don't even feel them or feel conscious of people looking at you whilst wearing them. Additionally thanks to the pre-glued lashes they lasted me the whole night as after this event I went out of the town and not once did I panic that it was somewhere on the floor or in someone's cocktail glass!
The event also had a photo-booth WITH a wind machine all I needed was a mic and I would have acted liked I was holding my own concert! The photo-booth just added to the glam and fun of the night which I took FULL ADVANTAGE of! It took a few takes and through some of them I looked intoxicated but we also had props that made me feel like a kid all over again!
