I Love lashes! When my friend Vanessa informed me she was launching her own lashes, I was so excited.
Vanessa is an AMAZING artist by all means. Shes so artistic in her everyday life and views things others simply cant. I look forward to her daily post on Instagram just to see what she came up with today.
I interviewed Vanessa so we could get a glimpse into her inspiration. I know you ladies will love her as much as I do!
Interview Meet Vanessa :
How long have you been in the beauty industry?
I have been in the Beauty industry for 12yrs, licensed and practicing hair and makeup. The best industry to be in! But always had interest in the field since i was very young.
Youre so talented, and very artistic. Where do you get your inspiration from for your daily looks?
Well 90% of the time i literally dont know what im gonna do. i just think to myself “what color have i not done yet?” then it just evolves into art. Which FYI i absolutely love all types of art… as far as my series, they just come to my head and i think how can i do looks that can change but draw together at the same time.
The lashes you created are amazing. What inspired you to pursue a lash business?
I absolutely love makeup.. when i look at makeup or do makeup, i always think of the emotion and feeling of what a look would portray. i also paint the same way. and alot of the feelings show thru the eyes . what better to help that feeling then with the aid of amazing lashes! anyone can easily get the feeling of instance fierce or glam, or even be creative and place them under their eyes for a sad look. whatever you want to create, lashes always gives that extra kick!
What inspired your lash styles?
the lashes are inspired by my favorite artists in time. the first two styles were inspired by Vincent VanGogh.. i have always been an artists on canvas, i love to paint my own face and others. So my lashes represent those very painting , that in turn would inspire anyone to create a masterpiece. Also naming the lashes the way i did was also to inspire you to create something related to that very name.
Are you planning any new style of lashes?
hmm..tick tick tick.. hahaha yesss! Its currently in the works, two NEW styles will be coming up very soon 😉 can you guess who the inspired artist would be?! They’re going to be fun!
Whats your favorite Go-To look?
My favorite go to especially when running out of time is Messy Eyes! love to do those eyes because they look like little paintings, im all about art. Even when i try to do a natural look, somehow color, and smudges come into the picture. Lol.. Just add the lashes and your look is complete!
What is the youngest memory you have of yourself that involves makeup?
I was in middle school and wasnt allowed to wear makeup but loved and wanted to sooo bad! i would look thru magazines and think ” WOW how did they do that?” Flipping thru the pages telling myself “i wanna do that! i want to do hair and makeup.” So at night i would gather what little makeup my mother had. and i would be up late at night just practicing. Figuring out where to place shadows, liner, everything! Back in those days there was no youtube only magazines. Very early on when i would watch movies, i was always drawn to how the actors changed their hair and makeup, new look for a new scene. I still do that! LOL (sorry i talk in movies, usually about their changing looks!)
Any words of wisdom youd like to share with us?
YESS! Be YOU! Never be afraid to do any look just because youre afraid of being judged. If youre new at makeup or just love it, learn, blend, and step outside the box. Once you explore outside the box it will be liberating! Its pushing your limits, learning new techniques its as if youve reached a new level of learning. They become works of ART! Thats why always say be your own kind of ARTIST!
Now lets talk about these LASHES!
Honestly I had never used mink lashes, I knew they can be pricey and that they’re super voluminous. I did my own research, read reviews on mink lashes, what to expect, look out for on the lashes and also how to care for these lashes! Another thing i made sure no Minks were being hurt in the making of these lashes. Vanessa is an animal lover! so naturally her lashes are Cruelty- Free and she prides herself in that.
I have sensitive eyes, and extremely bad allergies. My eyes water so easily even wearing eyeliner makes my eyes water lol. These lashes are comfortable and did not irritate my eyes. I have trimmed the little corners on each side to wear them longer. I wore these lashes for 6hrs minimum. Mink lashes can be reused up to 20 times, if taken care of properly!
I seriously La-La-LOVE these lashes,I own both styles and I cant decide which I love both.. I just cant >_<
The shape and density is perfect for any look, add some fierce drama to your lashes!
Café Terrace $24.95 – a light flirty look this will add just the right amount of length and volume to any look. I consider this one to be the more natural looking one. I LOVE these lashes! I feel so flirty I just wanna bat my lashes when I wear these feeling cute like Minnie mouse! I wore these for a lunch date with the hubby i FELL IN LOVE!
Starri- Nite – 28.95 – a voluminous lash that will give all the drama you’ve been looking for! This is my favorite lash! GIRL! This lash is amazing I get so many compliments when I wear this lash, these are the attention getters boo! These lashes inspire me to step out of my comfort zone and anything i “feel” i create. I’m OBSESSED with these lashes.
How to care for your lashes
The key to using your lashes up to 20 times is to properly care for your lashes and sanitize them with alcohol and pluck out the dried glue.
- Using Q-tip with makeup remove and left over glue.
- Store your lashes in the original packaging.
- Do NOT soak your lashes in any type of liquid.
- Its advised to not apply any mascara on your flasies!
