Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
Make an impact with gorgeously long lashes. From bold and beautiful strips to subtle individual stick-ons, here's our pick of the best falsies around...
What if we told you that you could have full luscious looking lashes that last for up to four weeks? There's no need to fiddle with pesky tweezers, or get your eyes stuck together from an adhesive that's too sticky? Whats more, you can pretty much drift off and wake up with party ready lashes... Sound good? Well that's what's promised from the staff at Lash Bar in London, who have mastered the Russian Technique - a new style of individual lashes that are a hot favourite with celebrities...
...The two hour treatment may not be ideal for a woman on the go, but if you fancy being pampered then it won't be an issue as you'll wake up with beautiful hassle-free lashes. Unlike other extensions, which are inserted in between existing lashes, the Russian technique sees five strands attached to each lash, for a full but natural look. They have the tendency to tangle if you sleep rough so keep a lash wand handy, but their staying power is perfect for special occasions!
Love the glamorous look? Eylure's intense lashes are a great pick for your next night out. Not only are they super-black making them even more dramatic, but the strips are easy to apply and come in at under £3 so you can stock up on a whole batch without spending a fortune!
Individuals are an amazing way to get natural looking lashes with serious curl. They're fine so they won't build up, but they can be perfectly placed where you want extra length. Ideal if you want a subtle look with maximum volume.
If you're not a fan of all-out lashes but individuals seem too fiddly, try these partials from Urban Decay. You can pop a small selection on the corner of each eye and achieve instant extensions with no fuss.
MAC's natural lashes are long, full and fabulous. No. 3 are THE pair to take you from your desk to drinks with the girls. Plus they're strong, meaning you can use them more than once so they're totally worth the spend.
For the ultimate eye flutter, why not try a feathered pair of lashes? Shu Uemura's dark dense falsies take fake to the next level - and we love them! Pair them with your black LBD this party season and we guarantee you'll stop traffic.
If feathers aren't your thing but you still want to make a statement, Lace Garden's false lashes could do just the trick. Using laser-cutting, the intricate paper falsies give the appearance of lacy eyelashes with serious wow factor.
For a 1950s feel, The Vintage Cosmetic Company have a kitsch selection of lashes if you want to go all Katy Perry on your beauty. This 'Kitty' pair would look fab with a slick of red lipstick and porcelain skin.
If you're still not sold on fake eyelashes, we've found an amazing alternative. Magnifibres involve no glue, no mess and no fuss. Just sweep the brush over your natural eyelashes after applying mascara and watch them grow instantly.
