Friday Favourites: Eye Feature

The full-on lash craze is still with us, from mascara to falsies or even eyelash extensions; and we here at The Amazing Blog don’t see it slowing down any time soon. Today, we thought we would share some of our favourite and effective lash products with all of you. The eyes are our favourite feature to play up. There are a mountain of products on the market, it can be both time consuming and costly to find those holy grail items, so here we thought we’d do the work for you. From mascara and eyeliner to removing it all after a long day, we have got your eyes covered!

This dynamic duo from CODE Beautiful is first on our list. The combination of their CODE FFL Forget Fake Lashes with the CODE VLM Volumising Lengthening Mascara is simply a gift from heaven. CODE FFL is a pre-mascara lash plumper that will take your lashes to the next level, giving you that false lash look without the hassle. It’s a fibre based, light brown mascara that latches onto every individual lash for ultimate volume and length with conditioning agents so you can avoid flaky mascara throughout the day. Once you’ve got your first coat on, next up is the CODE VLM. This intensely black mascara adds serious shine to your lashes, but is also buildable so that you can go from day to night—natural to full glam without clumping or flaking. Added bonus? It’s tear-proof for any rough patches in the day.

Both of these mascaras from CODE are fortified with vitamins and waxes to nourish your lashes with each wear and are paraben free and never tested on animals. It’s everything we love all rolled into a tube.

The next mascara on our list is a little something for the bold and adventurous souls who love to add an unexpected pop of colour to their look. From the incredible Rouge Bunny Rouge, we have the WITCHERY Modelling Mascara in Red Nightfall. This deep wine shade (yes, really it's a red!)  is sure to catch eyes in the best way possible. We loved using it for a night out to switch up our looks, but we have to say that it's just about subtle enough to wear throughout the day. If red still isn’t quite your colour, the WITCHERY line offers the mascara in both black and brown. The rubber brush perfectly separates the lashes, leaving clumps behind and long, defined lashes centre stage. And our favourite part is that you can skip the eyelash curler because this mascara perfectly curls and holds your lashes all day long.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can purchase the WITCHERY Modelling Mascara in Red Nightfall here for £29.00.

Once you've found the perfect mascara for luscious lashes, the best way to tie it all together is with a sleek sweep of highly pigmented eyeliner. Keep reading, as today we’ve found two eyeliners to offer you different looks. The first is the luxurious Oh My Glide Eyeliner from A.T Antao. The golden design of the pen really does just 'glide' it looks and feels lavish, the intensely pigmented black colour will not smudge or fade for over 12 hours of wear and is waterproof to keep you prepared for whatever comes your way. The second is the OMG Precise Eyeliner which is perfect for achieving that fine sharp wing, it has an easy reach from the root of lashes and corner of eyes as the incredibly soft and thin tip is made of PBT hair (in fact, both eyeliners have this), which is a synthetic animal hair substitute.  The PBT absorbs little liquid allowing both the applicators to hold its stiffness for even application every single time. For beginners, we recommend the OMG Smooth Eyeliner because the soft and thicker tip allows for easy application to create sweeping lines in an instant.

Purchase both the Oh My Glide Eyeliners for £9.90 each here for a perfect line every time.

Our last stop on the list is for eye makeup removers. After a long day, the last thing we want to do is take off our makeup, but the number one rule in our books is to never sleep in our makeup!  The Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover from Nouveau Lashes makes it so quick, easy and leaves our eye area so hydrated, that we actually look forward to it now before heading off to bed. This “gentle, vitamin and anti-oxidant enriched” formula is perfect for those sporting lash extensions, as it doesn’t strip the adhesive bond, ensuring you get the longest wear out of them. The blend of watercress, pomegranate and mango really work to nourish the lashes and skin, with the calming properties of chamomile to soothe as your makeup melts away. We apply the formula onto a cotton pad and then gently wipe away all of our make up; no rinsing required. Added bonus? It’s vegan-friendly.Purchase the Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover here for £14.99.

We hope we’ve helped you narrow down your search or introduced you to some hidden gems. Here’s to flirty, full lashes and keeping our eyes centre stage.
