Should I try coloured lashes?

Make those eyes POP this Christmas with coloured lashes!

If Christmas isn’t the time to try something out there than when is? Coloured lashes are becoming increasing popular for creating dramatic looks around the festive season. Here are some top tips for using colour within your lash treatments…


  1. Complement the clients natural eye colour. Complimentary colours:

Green eyes: Layering purple lashes will intensify green eyes

Hazel/Brown eyes: Green lashes will enhance brown eyes and make them appear bigger

Blue eyes: Layer blue lashes with black will create a dramatic affect


  1. Allow extra time

Adding coloured lashes is an art. Chances are you won’t be doing a full set of colour, rather using them with black to create a desired look. It’s vital to create symmetry with colour so allow an extra half an hour of treatment time to ensure you’re creating the perfect set!


  1. Choosing your glue

Black glue can create an eyeliner effect with coloured lashes, creating a more dramatic look. If you’re looking for a more subtle, natural look clear glue would be best.


  1. Work with the natural lash layers

Applying coloured lashes to the bottom layer of lashes will make them stand out the most, giving an instant pop of colour. For more of a layered subtle look apply them to the top layer of lashes or mix them in with black lashes will create more of a day look.

    I made a last minute decision to attend the ‘dry manicure and gel polish’ course and so glad I did! The tutor (Donnamarie) was so passionate and inspiring that she gave me the confidence I needed. Everything was well explained and the group was small enough get the best out of the day.

    I have done a few courses at the Cambridge and London venues and loved all of them. Staff is very friendly and professional at the same time which makes it easy to learn the theory and also the techniques. Teachers pay attention to each student and gives honest advises and support. I highly recommend The Beauty Academy for everyone.
