Beauty | An Evening with Nouveau Lashes

I've never been a confident lash wearer (unless someone else applies them for me) so I've got no shame in admitting that when I was invited to spend an evening with a group of bloggers and the team from Nouveau Lashes a few weeks ago, I approached the event with equal parts excitement and trepidation.

Nouveau Lashes

I was pretty dismayed to step off the train in Leeds into a full on rainstorm, but my mood brightened significantly when I walked into the incredibly luxurious Malmaison in the City Centre and was guided to the lovely rooms where the event was taking place.

I was probably one of the latest to arrive and so didn't get to socialise and chat as much as I'd have liked, but it was all good when we were whisked away into an adjoining room to hear a bit about the Nouveau Lashes brand.

Nouveau Lashes

Brought to the beauty market in 2005 by Bridgette Softley and Karen Betts, Nouveau quickly excelled in creating beautiful lashes and lash treatments for everyone, including individual lash extensions which can last up to 8 weeks and a system called LVL Enhance, which uses all sorts of modern trickery to create fuller longer lashes without extensions.

Nouveau also offer training for beauty professionals throughout the UK and we were lucky enough to be offered a bit of a masterclass on how to apply strip lashes at the event.  Corrine was the lucky lady who got her lashes applied for her (and they looked fab); it was over in just a few minutes and then we were off to do our own!

Like I said, I'm not a confident lash wearer, but the ladies from Nouveau made it easy as pie, guiding me through from choosing the right lashes for my eye shape (mine are hooded apparently, shame!) to using the glue and getting the lashes on.  Honestly it was such a doddle, and of course I had to take my #UltimateLashSelfie to show off my work.

I left the event feeling rather proud of my efforts and armed with the Nouveau goodie bag, I know that when the occasion arises I'll totally be able to apply these lashes myself.  Bravo Nouveau!

How are you lash applying abilities?  Is Nouveau a brand you've tried before?

  1. I've never worn fake lashes through pure fear of messing it up! I'll definitely head towards this brand though if you think it's easier...should I ever be brave enough to wear them at all!
