Playing with falsies, watching an artist at work, and learning some tips along the way - not a bad way to spend an afternoon, right?
The Velour Lashes "Live In Lashes" pop-up event stopped by the Toronto Eatons Centre a few weeks ago, so I went to check it out.
I got to pick out my favourite set of Velour Lashes, and get them applied by a seasoned professional.

Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta was also there doing a makeup and lash application on a model. His clients include the Kardashian family as well as the Hadid family and Shay Mitchell, and his work is absolutely gorgeous, so I definitely trust his advice. The best tip that I learned was before you apply the false lash, gently wrap it around your finger tip and hold it tight for about 20 seconds to give it a more flexible curve. He also said that the best way to apply falsies is to apply the lashes while looking down, so hold your mirror near the bottom of your face.
Patrick was really friendly and willing to take as many selfies as everyone wanted. Since I'm a false lash rookie, his tips were super helpful - can't wait to try them out!
Being the makeup junkie that I am, I snapped a picture of Patrick's kit. See any of your faves?
