Halloween Flashback Friday

We can’t believe it’s been a whole week since Friday the 31st – time is flying by and now it’s almost time to get ready for Christmas again. However, not before we do a quick flashback to all your amazing Halloween looks. If you don’t follow us on Instagram oR Twitter you might have missed all the amazing looks our wonderful customers came up with over the spooky weekend.

We’ve picked a few of the most gruesome for you to enjoy.

Not to worry, we’ll be getting into the festive swing of things soon so keep your eyes peeled for all things sugar and spice.

Katie Wrigley – Extreme Makeup Test

When this email from the lovely Katie Wrigley dropped into my inbox I was over-the-moon! Team Eldora are always banging on about how brilliant our lashes are so to have someone put them to the test (a very extreme test!) and come back with a glowing report was amazing. Read below for a very lovely, very beautiful and very lash-filled tale…
____________
As a freelance make up artist I find the most desired appointments for occasional party make up are between three and six, but there are only so many appointments available between those hours, I’m extremely lucky to have a regular flow of clients! I found that when prime appointments were not available that some clients (particularly new clients) were reluctant to have their make up applied at two when they did not intend to go out until maybe eight, with reasons including:
* It will be on too long
* It will sweat off 
* Eyelashes won’t lastEven when reassured, some clients just would not risk it for their big night out. What could I do?I tried applying my own make up each day at 9 and when I was still getting compliments by the end if the day I found it a tangible way to reassure clients. I genuinely believe in the products I use,  speak about and promote the looks I create using these products passionately, I needed to get this noticed and others to believe too.

So I had an idea, maybe a crazy idea, but I hoped it would make an impact! What if I test my make up to the extreme?

When I turned 30 I made a promise with myself that I’d run a marathon – crazy – for someone who actually did zero exercise this was a big deal – I had to train! My body changed. My life revolved around running which I hated! Suddenly I thought, what if I run the marathon wearing make up? (Including eyelashes obviously!) so I could genuinely put my theory to the test.

So on the morning of the marathon at six AM I started to apply my make up, I chose Eldora false eyelashes H119. By seven AM I was in the car driving to the race with a full face of make up on.

By nine AM I was standing on the starting line, my nerves gone, and the sky heavy with rain clouds.

Five hours, six minutes and seven seconds later, I’d done it, I’d ran a marathon. Almost eight hours after I’d first applied my make up, this photo was taken

Feeling Blush

As Autumn Winter approaches we’re getting itchy fit concerning our beauty looks! A new season always calls for a new makeup look and today we’re reconsidering all things blusher. Thanks to some cult products (MAC blushes anyone?) and some new kids on the block (Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks are amazing!) we’re feeling well equipped to tackle our cheekbones. Plus, we’ve got all this for inspiration…

Saturday Sweets

While our main addiction is of course lashes, we are rather partial to a calorific dessert. We’ve created a Saturday Sweets board on Pinterest which has given us the perfect excuse to spend hours drooling over amazing sweet recipes! For all you food porn addicts we highly reccomend having a look.
