Being able to apply lashes without gouging your eye out is a life long skill.


I love make-up and I always have. I wear it basically everyday, in one form or another. I’m probably not as innovative as I should be when it comes to my looks, but I am still learning to go outside my comfort zone and try new looks, colours, techniques and products.

I’ve lost count at the number of times I have had my makeup done – most recently I had it done for my wedding! I wanted a brown smokey eye and full on lashes. I think lashes really frame the whole eye and pull a makeup look together. I wore strip lashes and my bridesmaids wore individual lashes and we were all so happy with the outcome!

Post wedding I have since learned how to correctly apply lashes and I have been wearing them to events and date nights with JD! They really make me feel like I have had my makeup done professionally – I guess because they are such a statement and they are perfectly groomed. I definitely will be wearing them all the time when I do heavier / smokey eyes on myself. My favourite look to do on myself is a orange/bronze shadow with a cat-eye wing and lashes! Such an awesome look!


For this blog post I used Manicare Glam lashes which you can pick up from Priceline (there is a great 3-2 offer on from today! Also, Manicare are running a super fun giveaway at the moment which has a killer prize. To enter and to see all offers head on over to Get Your Glam On, here.

I recently took part in a social experiment (which you may have seen on my Instagram)! The results are pretty crazy! You can watch all the results below.

Thanks for reading guys! I would love to hear from my online family and know what they think about this makeup look! Would you like to see some tutorials? Have an amazing weekend and I will be posting again really soon! Big love, Ally!
