MUA Profile: Racheal Brown

We have another MUA Profile Post for you and this time it’s with Racheal Brown (@racheal_revenge), the ever so lovely and really rather talented beauty blogger and makeup artist! We’ve asked her a few questions below so read on to get to know her:
Eldora Eyelashes
1) What was your first impression of Eldora Lashes?
I had a little experience with false lashes before Eldora, so when I received my first two pairs of Eldora Lashes I was ecstatic. They were gorgeous and fluffy and above all, they looked so elegant to me! I was amazed by the quality.
2) How did you find using Eldora Lashes?
Eldora Lashes are very easy to use! I was pleasantly surprised. I hadn’t had much practice putting on lashes previously and I considered myself a novice at best. I found lashes hard to put on before these. But these were actually much easier to put on than any brand I had tried before! They weren’t stiff, like some I had tried, so they molded to my eye shape and looked amazing with very little effort.
 3) Which style Eldora Lashes are your favourite and why?
Oh gosh… there are just so many to choose from!! I think H125 and B179 are my absolute go-to favorites. H125 looks so natural when on, it even has an invisible band that gives an even more natural look. I honestly forget I have these on due to how light-weight and flexible they are.  B179 are a more dramatic lash that I love to use when doing bright eye looks. They wing out to what I consider the perfect length and the criss-cross lashes add that perfect little pop that compliments any look I create.
4) How would you say Eldora Lashes compare to other brands you have used?
Eldora, by far, is the BEST brand I’ve used. I’ve used several other brands but I always come back to my Eldora collection. There was one brand in particular that I used before discovering Eldora that I thought was great, until Eldora. They had these really thick stiff bands that weighed my eyelids down. I thought all lashes were like that until I was given two pairs of Eldora lashes. In comparison to the thick, stiff, blah lashes, Eldora was like a cloud or a spider’s web: lightweight and didn’t affect the way my lid moved at all but still so beautiful.

5) Can you tell us a little about yourself? e.g. where you’re from and how you became an beauty blogger?
I’m a 23 year old nerdy girl from a small town in Virginia (USA). Growing up in a small town where the nearest mall is almost an hour away and my best friend living thirty minutes (by car) away left finding ways to amuse myself a lot of the times. I started reading books, manga, and comics, watching everything from anime and horror movies to British television (Doctor Who being my favorite) and Korean dramas! I always had a love of make-up, but it wasn’t until I was in my late teens that my passion for it began. I remember going on youtube and I stumbled upon a Michelle Phan video tutorial. I fell in love with the idea of creating these unique eye looks, so I took out my make up brushes and eyeshadow palette and began. Around that time I had discovered Instagram, so I started sharing my looks with my friends and family on there. When strangers starting liking and leaving comments complimenting my work I guess that’s the moment I decided to become a beauty blogger. I wanted to share these small pieces of myself with others, help them learn, answer their questions and grow with the experiences it brought me.
 
6) What is it that you love about working with Make Up and being a blogger? 
I’ve suffered from confidence issues for most of my life and I still do suffer from it. Someone once asked me when I felt the most beautiful and it made me think. People around me kept saying things like “at night when all my make up is off and I’m relaxing”. But for me it’s when I have my make-up on. I thought about it and realised it’s not because of how I look, but because the confidence it gave me. When I put on my make-up, create this beautiful eye shadow look and look in the mirror at it I find confidence from this talent that I’ve worked so hard on and that grows every single day! As a make-up artist my goal is to give my clients confidence, to make them feel like the most beautiful person in the room and make-up can give someone that confidence. Sharing beauty with as many people as possible is one of the best feelings in the world.  That is what I love.

7) Which of the current beauty trends will you be recreating? 
Cat eyes for sure. I love eyeliner and all the different shapes you can do. Also, glitter seems to be making a comeback in fashion and beauty so I’m excited to do some work including some sparkle!

8) What are your favourite blogs and magazines for inspiration?
BeautifyandCreatify (of instagram), xSparkage.com, MadeYewLook  and Shauneylicious (of Instagram) are some of my favorite bloggers! And of course the Eldora False Lashes Blog!

MUA Profile: Klaire De Lys

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…

Klaire De Lys MUA

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?
