Evening Makeup | SHF False Eyelashes Review

Evening Makeup FOTD SHF False Eye Lashes 0074 Review Belle-amie

In my last post I mentioned that I was going out for a meal to celebrate my mum's birthday, so I've decided to show you what makeup I wore out that night! This look is a dark brown smokey eye with full, volumised lashes and a nude pink lip. It's very easy to wear and is my "go-to" type of look for when I go out during the evening.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 206 Nude Pink

I decided to go with a pair of SHF false eyelashes in the Style 0074 as I found these very natural looking yet still gave my lashes added length and volume. The lashes themselves are quite thin, but have a criss-cross design that helps give a lot volume and definition to your lashes. They also have smaller lashes in between the larger ones which also helps with volume. I did have to trim them down a little bit so they would fit my eye as I don't like lashes going right into the inner corner. But this does mean they should fit quite a few eye shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, I couldn't use the adhesive that came with the lash set as I couldn't pierce the seal with the lid (I'm far too weak haha) to get the glue out, so I used one that came in my beauty kit that's by Salonsystem.
These lashes are meant to be lightweight and comfortable to wear which, at the start, I did agree with. However, after about 2/3 hours, the edges of the lashes were beginning to dig into my eyes and became really uncomfortable. I had to take them off! I was quite annoyed by this because I loved the way they made my lashes look. In the end I just reapplied some more eye liner and mascara and left my look at that.

As much as I liked how these looked on me, I don't think I'll be trying these lashes again or the rest of the range as they are either very dramatic or colourful. I think these lashes would be great for fancy dress or for making your eyes the feature point of your makeup. But personally, I don't think these are for me.

Have you tried SHF false eyelashes before?

  3. The lashes look amazing on you. They don't look fake at all, very subtle.
    I just looked at the rest of the range and I think you got the best pair, the other look a bit like their meant for fancy dress or a rave!

  4. You look lovely :) I hate it when lashes dig into the corners of my eyes too, usually I trim them right down and just apply them on the outer two thirds of the eyes its much more comfortable x

  9. I love this look on you. It looks natural but not too 'bare.' I had exactly the same problem with not being able to pierce the seal a few weeks ago, and it really put me off wearing lashes as I then had to go buy another glue on its own and it wasn't a good one anyway! Hope your mom had a lovely birthday :)

  15. I've never used lashes - I'm always afraid I'm going to glue my eyelids shut. I love how natural they look on you.

    1. Thank you! They are fairly easy to put on, took me a couple attempts on each eye. So do I, I either wait too long so the glue's dried or put them on too early and they just fall off haha! Just takes a lot of practice I think :) xx
