faux lashes

Winks by Georgie


Holy cow, it's been ages since my last blog post.  Between the new baby and my work baby (the upcoming party), lavishboudoir.com has been severely neglected.  My bad.  Forgive me? So I want to introduce you to a fabulous new luxury I've discovered through a past client.  Winks are the most lavish way to get full, sexy lashes for special occasions, and of course a boudoir or beauty shoot.  The company is cruelty-free to animals and has a great little compact for storage and re-use.  I think that's freaking awesome because I'm constantly misplacing my lashes, or leaving them spider-like on the bathroom counter (which always startles whoever uses it after me).  The best part... the creator is from Georgia!  These lashes are sold in Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and other fancy retailers.

Thanks to the awesome company, I'll be giving away a gift set of lashes plus a compact at my party.  Don't forget to RSVP here to get two raffle tickets at the door!

Beauty Tip - Faux Lashes (Mild to Wild)


I love false lashes.  In fact, I now insist that women wear them for their shoots.  Why?  They're dramatic, they're sexy and they're lots of fun. For a natural wide-eyed look, I love Laura Mercier's Center Faux Lashes.  I wore them on my wedding day!

For a wild and artistic look, try something like these by Makeup Forever.

Step 1:  Before gluing, take each lash row and wiggle it a little bit.  This will help it conform to your lash line.

Step 2: To apply lashes, use a clear waterproof adhesive.  I like Duo brand that's available at drugstores. Use a toothpick to apply a thin line of adhesive to the base of the false lashes.

Step 3: Let it rest for a few seconds to get a bit more tacky

Step 4: Line them up with your own lashes.  Make sure they're not stabbing you in the eyelid when you blink

Step 5: Use a dark liner to go over the lash line and disguise the base of the lashes.

Flutter and flirt away!
