eye CANDY Dramatise Strip Lashes are easy to apply and made our lashes look longer and thicker. At £4.49 they are a bargain, as good as any of the designer brands we tried and there are lots of styles to choose from. Ideal for applications at home especially if like us you don’t have the steadiest fingers. Available in store at Boots or from

CHIC: Shu Uemura Black Velvet feather false eyelashes add a bold, glamorous statement to any eyes. Ideal for special occasions. At £18 for the lashes and an extra £12.50 for the glue they aren’t cheap. We’d advise getting them applied in store as they are difficult to apply at home. That said when they are on, they look pretty god damn good!
