Bespoke Lashes

January 17th, 2007


Lashes get a custom-fit.


"I love eyelashes. Eyelashes can change your look more than any facial feature other than the eyebrow".
~The late makeup artist Kevin Aucoin

Today's "customized" trend has extended into cosmetics. Lipsticks, fragrances, eyeshadow and even shampoos can now be tailor-made and readily available.

Lashes too, are getting customized. False eyelashes and lash extensions continue to be popular as we move into 2007. One way people are individualizing their eyelashes is by extensions. Eyelash salons are slowly popping up across America. These "lash lounges", as they are being called, focus on the application of individual eyelash hair, and help give women sweeping eyelashes without mascara. If you are a serious lash advocate, this is the place for you. For more details go to The Lash Lounge. Beware that the cost is high and the process can take up to three hours to apply.

imageNow along comes another solution to help customize your lash look...Lancome's new Cils Design Pro Custom Design Double Mascara. It allows you to lengthen and sculpt your lashes as you like.

It's an easy two-step process that works in the following way:

imageStep one: Use the Hi-Pro Stretch Brush to instantly lengthen and define the lashes.

imageStep two: Use the Design Pro Mini Comb to custom design your lash effect.

You can customize your lashes to suit your need....

~For a wide-eye false eyelash look, apply the mascara on all lashes, than use the comb to exaggerate and lengthen the hard-to-reach outer corner lashes.
~For a fun, fluttery lash look, enhance every other "lash group" so a pattern begins....long lashes, short lashes.
~For a quick, easy lash tip, use the comb to only apply mascara to the outer lash tips for a natural, but there look.

Have fun; explore new ways to enhance your lashes. You can even dip the comb into color mascara for an even more customized effect.

After all, what are eyes without their most enhancing accessory?
