We managed to pin down the talented MUA Klaire De Lys and pick her brain about all things lashes, beauty and blogging! She has also sent over some images of looks she created using Eldora lashes plus some video tutorials so we can all have a go ourselves (we will definitely be trying these out!). Anyway, we will shhh now and let you get to know the very wonderful Klaire…
1) What was your first impression of Eldora Lashes?
Good quality and affordable (and so the perfect lashes!)
2) How did you find using Eldora Lashes?
Really easy to apply and I love that there are so many different lashes to choose from.
3) Which style Eldora Lashes are your favourite and why?
The H151 lashes – sure they can look very wild and crazy, but that’s exactly why I love them! Also the lash band is thin and flexible which makes them so easy to apply.
4) How would you say Eldora Lashes compare to other brands you have used?
Other than when I have bulk bought sets of lashes on Ebay, in general Eldora lashes are cheaper and better quality than competitors.
5) Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m from Reading, and I got into beauty though music. I used to do song covers on my old Klaire de Lys channel and I started to experiment with the kind of makeup I would like to wear if I ever became a professional singer. In a few of the covers I wore the makeup, and people started to ask for me to do a tutorial on it. I set up my KlairedelysArt channel to do that since I wanted to keep the makeup and music separate and that’s how it all started really. Now I do both the makeup and music with my band Fenix where I’m hoping to mix both my love of art, music and makeup.
6) What is it that you love about working with makeup and being a blogger?
The unlimited freedom it gives you to just create and try to make something beautiful, especially something unconventional. Why does everything which is considered pretty have to be all pink and sickly-sweet? Dark and weird can be beautiful too! I love that I don’t have to justify myself to anyone – my blog, my rules.
7) Which of the current beauty trends will you be recreating?
To be perfectly honest, none. I don’t even know what the current trends are, and if I did I don’t think it would interest me. I think I’d prefer to do something unexpected and random than what everyone else is doing.
8) What are your favourite blogs and magazines for inspiration?
I don’t really read any magazines so I couldn’t answer that but as for blogs and video makers I mostly follow people like GoldieStarling, Emma Pickles, NikkieTutorials and AnnaAurthur
Thank you very much Klaire for sharing your work and the frankly beautiful things you do with our lashes, I don’t know about you but we’re feeling inspired to apply some lashes and open our eyeshadow palettes! If you want to try your hand at recreating the creative looks Klaire has showed us then why not follow her helpful video tutorials?
