Lush Lashes – It’s all about Shu Uemura

I have been on a mission to create lush lashes for a lifetime; I was born with puny lashes and have done everything possible to make them grow and thicken to no avail.  I even tried lash extensions a couple of times but feared they’d cause permanent damage if used for too long (and I swear mine are weaker and thinner since then!).  I’ve used Jan Marini (loved the original formula), Revitalash (still use this daily), and many other conditioners that seem to make them a tad stronger and less likely to fall out but no thicker nor longer.  I’ve also bought every brand and style of false lashes imaginable but none gave the lush natural lashes I achieved through Shu Uemura!  I am obsessed with this system and have turned many friends on to it!  Tools you’ll need:

The Lashes– Shu uemura lashes are amazing, they are so fluttery and natural… you can use a couple during the day for accent or 3 – 4 at night for more oomph. I have tried the cheaper versions but the they just don’t measure up!  Shu lashes are the most natural and have soft rubber strip that molds to the curve of the eye.  I trim a couple in half for the curve in center of eye.

To Apply – For exact application the Shu Uemura lash applicator is a must. It looks like tweezers and holds the lashes so you can put it exactly where you want to.

The Glue – You have to buy the Shu Uemura Lash Adhesive ; it does not dry into a hard line but stays soft and pliable for easy removal.  Squeeze a tiny line of glue on to clean tissue, dip lash strip lightly with applicator and wait a few seconds before applying.

To BlendShu Uemura liquid eyeliner pen allows you to blend between the lash line so you can achieve the most natural look without a heavy line.  (Jump to see before and after photos!)

    I have always wanted to try fake lashes. I think for my wedding I would really like to try something like this for that old hollywood look. Is this what you would recommend?
