Because I Heart Kay: Flutter those Lashes

Because I Heart Kay: Flutter those Lashes

>> Finito!  This is the final Kay Montano make-up tutorial that the lovely folks at Because magazine enabled me to be in.  I'm waving goodbye to the possibility of any further updates to the Beauty School Dropout unless I drastically change my attitude towards beauty products or rather beauty products that are purely functional – i.e. anything that seeks to cover-up or enhance.  I'll make an effort to talk about the fun stuff, the things that made me smile like a lunatic in these little videos but there won't be an expert like Kay at my side applying it on my face with the hand of a pro.  Still, I'll try and take as much away as I can.  I'll just savour those moments when fake eyelashes, as seen in this video, actually stayed firmly put on my lashes as opposed to making sad face drooping motions.  I'll remember that blue eye shadow and a blue lip might be entirely appropriate for doing the shopping at Waitrose.  And I'm definitely smearing black gunk all over my eyes in manner of a panda bear.

If I'm going to go into product review mode, I would like to add that the Paperself lashes despite their prickly paper-based nature, were actually the easiest to wear because of how light they were.  Seeing as I can't flutter my eyelashes properly, blinking slowly with these paperscapes that now depict spiders, birds, Victorian lace and underwater scenes would be the next best thing.

    That is so, so playful and adorable! I’m not sure I’d be able to find the courage to wear the paper lashes, but I really must try and create an occation for myself.

    And now I wish I hadn’t got drunk and shoved the last free pair of Shu Uemura lashes I got into a pocket wrapped in tissue… Destroyed :/

    You look very cute with those lashes ^^
    I’d love to try some of those myself, but I don’t think I could ever have the skill or the patience…
    Love! xx
