Long, beautiful eyelashes can definitely make you stand out in a crowd. When your lustrous lashes are real, as opposed to fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions, your eyes will be noticed with or without eye makeup. There is something about long eyelashes that looks absolutely lovely. Dark, full eyebrows and long, thick eyelashes bring out the true allure of your face.

Long, voluptuous eyelashes are a symbol of natural beauty and are an asset to any face. If you prefer extended, natural eyelashes there are easy, inexpensive ways to grow out your own enchanting lashes. Just like the hair on your head, your eyelashes and eyebrows need nourishment to grow and ensure that your vixen lashes remain extended and eye catching.

Bat your eyes for the good news! There are ways to grow thicker, longer, stronger and healthier natural eyelashes!

Natural Ways to Grow Long Eyelashes:

1. Use a lash lengthening gel underneath your mascara. Some lengthening gels not only grow and lengthen your own lashes, but the gel also conditions and protects your eyelashes, making your lashes stronger.
2. Apply olive oil or castor oil to your eyelashes before you go to bed. Rub the oil between your thumb and finger, then pat the oil onto your eyelashes, or use a clean mascara brush to apply.
3. Apply petroleum jelly to your eyelashes. Let the petroleum jelly sink into your lashes overnight, then wash the jelly off in the morning.
4. Avoid eyelash curlers! Eyelash curlers have a tendency to pull out and/or break your eyelashes, especially if you use the curler on lashes coated with mascara.
5. Eat a nutritious, well balanced diet high in B vitamins and protein. Your eyelashes need to be fed a healthy diet to grow thick and full, just like the hair on your head.
6. Glycerin and egg whites mixed with castor oil, applied to your eyelashes, feeds and strengthens your lashes.
7. Invest in a good eye makeup remover that allows for your mascara to come off easily, where you don’t have to scrub or tug at your lashes.

Once you’ve grown your eyelashes to a lovely length, why not book a pamper session with a Mobile Styles health and beauty expert? Treat yourself to a complete makeover that will make your entire face shine and glow as you go through your busy day.

In order to ensure that your natural, long eyelashes stand out even more, apply two coats of black mascara and watch your pretty peepers come to life. Long, dark, thick eyelashes do wonders for highlighting your face. I say that if I could only wear one cosmetic my choice would be mascara (with lipstick a close second)! The first thing people notice when they look at your face is your eyes. Long, mascara coated eyelashes help beautify and enlarge the size of your eyes. Sheer glamour!

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching, one sure way to enjoy and match your mood to the festive atmosphere is to doll up in the warm, glowing seasonal colors of oranges and golds. Sometimes it is fun to match and coordinate your makeup color combinations with the weather, your outfit, your mood, etc. Why not match it to the holiday!
Although I am one to experiment with makeup and feel that whichever color choices are preferred by the wearer are the right color combos, I think that gold eye shadows (whether glittered, cream or powder) and bold, ornamental orange lips look splendid together and absolutely smashing!

Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Eye shadow is a cosmetic that is applied on the eyelids and under the eyebrows. Eye shadow is commonly used to make the wearer’s eyes stand out or look more attractive. Eye shadow can add depth and dimension to one’s eyes, complement the eye color, make one’s eyes appear larger, or simply draw attention to the eyes. Eye shadow is usually made from a powder and mica, but can also be found in liquid, pencil, cream or mousse form.
Lipstick Fun Fact: Lipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture and protection to the lips. Wax provides the structure to the solid lipstick. Lipsticks may be made from several waxes such as beeswax, ozokerite and candelilla wax. Because of its high melting point, Carnauba wax is the key ingredient in terms of strengthening the lipstick. Various oils and fats are used in lipstick, such as olive oil, mineral oil, cocoa butter, lanolin and petrolatum.
Nancy Mangano’s Makeup Tip: When it comes to the eyes and the lips, gold eye shadows and orange lipsticks appear alluring, warm and hip! I highly recommend you try it!

Gold Fun Fact: The color gold is the color of success, achievement and triumph. Associated with abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige and sophistication, value and elegance, the psychology of the color implies affluence, material wealth and extravagance!
Radiate and luxuriate your face in glowing, glorious, gorgeous gold eye shadow tones!
Orange Fun Fact: The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow. Orange offers emotional strength in difficult times. The bold, bright, upbeat color helps us bounce back from disappointment and despair, assisting in recovery from grief.
Coat your luscious lips with opulent orange shades and turn your frown upside down. A kissable orange mouth stands out in any crowd!


If bright golds and oranges are too much for you and you adore the color scheme but prefer a more toned down look, you can still stick to fabulous, fashionable golds and oranges with these various shades of the colors:
Various Shades of the Color Gold:

  1. Light Brown
  2. Beige
  3. Bronze
  4. Tan

Various Shades of the Color Orange:

  1. Peach
  2. Golden Orange
  3. Amber
  4. Burnt Orange
  5. Tangerine

The warm effects of orange and gold! Eye shadow and lipstick combinations to behold!

Depending on your skin tone (light/fair, medium, olive, dark) gold and orange makeup combinations work well and both enhance and bring out your features. Gold shades of eye shadows look rich, regal and trendy. Orange lips look the bomb (much like a classic red painted lip) and can be noticed clear across the room!
Lipstick Fun Fact: Lipstick is such a powerful cosmetic, being both sensual and sexual. Ancient Sumerian men and women were probably the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago. They crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. Also around 3000 BC to 1500 BC, women in the ancient Indus Valley Civilization applied red tinted lipstick to their face for decoration. Ancient Egyptians wore lipstick to show social status rather than gender.
Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Eye shadow can be applied in a wide variety of ways, depending upon the desired look and formulation. Typically application is done using fingers or brushes. The most important aspect of applying eye shadow, especially if you are applying more than one color, is to blend well. You desire an over the top dramatic look? Then don’t blend the colors at all, let each color stand out bold on its own!

Lipstick Fashion Tip: If you prefer a dry, more drawn out mouth, use a matte lipstick. If you prefer the wet look, go with a lip gloss. To avoid bleeding and to accentuate the mouth, line your upper and bottom lips with a matching lip liner pencil (or similar shade) to shape and highlight your mouth!
Oh, give me that joyous, sexy, appealing, sensual orange pout! That’s what I’m talking about!

Positive Traits of the Color Gold:

  1. Success
  2. Abundance
  3. Wealth
  4. Understanding
  5. Self-Worth
  6. Wisdom
  7. Compassion
  8. Love
  9. Passion
  10. Charisma

Positive Traits of the Color Orange:

  1. Sociable
  2. Optimistic
  3. Enthusiastic
  4. Cheerful
  5. Independent
  6. Flamboyant
  7. Extroverted
  8. Adventurous
  9. Risk Taker
  10. Warm Hearted

Excellent associated traits for excellent colors of makeup choices! Righteous glamour!

Gold eye shadows and orange lips for autumn/fall is one of the most gorgeous cosmetic color schemes of all!
“Your mesmerizing eyes are speaking to me and your luscious lips I want to kiss!”
“I credit the allure to my gold tone eye shadow and my orange lips you can’t miss.”
“Your face radiates and looks like your complexion and features have been kissed by the sun.”
“Wearing gold tones with orange tones is by far a fabulous color combination on anyone.”
“Can I follow you home or go together to a salon where I can paint up in gold and orange too?”
“I’m flattered that you want to copy me, but great choice, these colors will look simply grand on you.”
Gold Eye Shadows and Orange Lips: I truly hope you both try and enjoy my wonderful makeup tips!

The most essential way to make your eyes stand out is by accentuating and enhancing the eyelashes. The shape and width of the eyebrow is a close second.
Long, full, luxurious eyelashes are like the lovely picture frame that enhances the picture and makes the photograph look larger, more inviting and allows it to stand out. Lengthy, dark eyelashes add depth, beauty and glamour to your eyes.
One way to ensure great, larger than life eyelashes? False eyelashes!

An eyelash is one of the hairs that grows at the edge of the eyelid. Eyelashes protect the eye from debris and perform some of the same functions as whiskers do on a cat or mouse, in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that on object (such as an insect) is near they eye, which then closes reflexively.
Eyelash Fun Fact: Long eyelashes are considered a sign of beauty in many cultures. Accordingly, some women seek to enhance their eyelash length artificially, using eyelash extensions or false eyelashes. Permanent eyelash tints and eyelash extensions have also become popular procedures, even in fairly basic salons.

False eyelashes are worth batting an eyelash for!
Five Steps to Make False Eyelashes Look Natural:

  1. Choose eyelashes that have a clear or invisible band.
  2. Wear single or trio lashes over strip lashes.
  3. Use dark lash glue that won’t leave a white residue.
  4. Apply false eyelashes to your real lashes.
  5. Use dark black mascara to blend your real and false eyelashes together.

Nancy Mangano’s False Eyelash Tip: I find false eyelashes to look absolutely beautiful, even when it is apparent that the eyelashes are fake. Much like wearing makeup. Eye shadow adds color, eyeliner adds definition, false eyelashes add lush, full lashes. It doesn’t matter if they are fake…the completed effect is gorgeous! All cosmetics enhance your appearance when applied correctly, yet no one professes that all makeup is natural! So, hail false eyelashes. Your beautiful, beguiling eyes will thank you!

Eyelash Fun Fact: Kohl, a black putty (usually antimony sulfide or lead sulfide) has been worn as far back as the Bronze Age to protect and enhance lashes. In Ancient Egypt, kohl was used as well by the wealthy and the royal to protect their eyes from the sand, dust and bugs.
Modern eye makeup includes mascara, eyeliner, eye putty and eye shadow to emphasize the eyes.
False Eyelash Fun Fact: The twentieth century saw the beginning of convincing false eyelashes, popular in the 1960s. There are also different tools that can be used on the lashes, such as eyelash curlers or mascara shields (mascara guards).

Animal Eyelash Fun Fact: Lashes, being hair, are found in mammals. Camels’ eyelashes are remarkably long and thick. Horses and cows feature eyelashes as well. Inherited eyelash problems are common in some breeds of dogs and horses.
Who is that bathing beauty batting her beautiful, bountiful eyelashes?

My oh my, where did you get those exaggerated eyelashes that add oomph and wow to your eyes? Your long eyelashes certainly enlarge your eye size!

Eyelash Fun Fact: Latisse was introduced in the first quarter of 2009 by Allergan as the first drug to receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for eyelash growth. Latisse is a solution of bimatoprost, the active component of the glaucoma medication Lumigan. According to Allergan, noticeable eyelash growth occurs within 16 weeks. Growth is reported to occur primarily on the upper eyelashes.
The past decade has seen the rapid increase in the development of eyelash conditioners. These conditioners are designed to increase the health and length of your lashes. Many eyelash conditioners utilize seed extract, minerals, and other chemicals to achieve these results.

For a trend that’s here to stay and adds luster and luxury to your eyes, go the false eyelash way!
“I couldn’t help but eye the radiant eyelashes the surround your eyes!”
“My long, full, divine eyelashes extend and add depth to my eye size.”
“Will you do me a favor and bat your gorgeous, glorious eyelashes at me?”
“I’ll give you a playful, bashful look with a demure, youthful glare, do you see?”
“Oh wow. To have your full attention and your lovely eyes focused on me is fine!”
“It’s a much better, complimentary way to flirt than asking “What’s your sign?”‘
False Eyelashes: For exquisite eyes that stand out and look simply divine!

Hats are hip. The decorative head coverings can fit flat on the head or be wide brimmed, tight or floppy, simple or flamboyant, work related or worn for fashion, but hats always add a special touch of “something” to an outfit and to your overall appearance.
A hat is a head covering which is worn for various reasons, including protection against the elements like rain or wind, ceremonial reasons such as university graduations and religious reasons, safety such as when working on a construction site, and for all fashion divas, as a flattering fashion accessory!

Hat Fun Fact: In the past, hats were an indicator of social status. In the military, hats may denote nationality, branch of service, rank, and/or regiment. Police typically wear distinctive hats such as peaked caps or brimmed hats, such as those worn by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
While there aren’t many official records of hats before 3,000 BC, they probably were commonplace before that. Archaeologists think that the Venus of Brassempouy 26,000 years ago may depict a hat. One of the earliest confirmed hats was worn by a bronze age man, whose body (including his hat) was found frozen in a mountain between Austria and Italy, where he’d been since around 3,300 BC. He was found wearing a bearskin cap with a chin strap, made of several hides stitched together, resembling a Russian fur hat without the flaps.
Decorate your head in a hat that’s all that!

Hat Fun Fact: The Philippi Collection is a collection of religious headgear assembled by a German entrepreneur, Dieter Philippi, located in Kirkel. The collection features over 500 hats, and is currently the world’s largest collection of clerical, ecclesiastical and religious head coverings. One of the most famous London hatters is James Lock & Co. of St. James’ Street. The shop claims to be the oldest operating hat shop in the world.
The tradition of wearing hats to horse racing events began at the Royal Ascot in Britain, which maintains a strict dress code. All guests in the Royal Enclosure must wear hats. This tradition has been adopted at other horse racing events, such as the Kentucky Derby in the United States.

Hat Fun Fact: Extravagant hats were popular in the 1980s, and in the early 21st century, flamboyant hats made a comeback, with a new wave of competitive young milliners designing creations that include turban caps, felt hats and tall headpieces made of human hair. Some new hat collections have been described as “wearable sculpture.” Many pop stars, among them Lady Gaga, have commissioned hats as publicity stunts.

Inches or centimeters may be used depending on the manufacturer. Felt hats can be stretched for a custom fit. Some hats, like hard hats and baseball caps, are adjustable. Some hats come in standard sizes, such as small, medium and large.
Traditional hat size is worked out by adding the fore and aft and side to side measurements (in inches) and then dividing by two. In the United Kingdom, an equivalent hat size is an eighth of an inch smaller than in the United States.
Are you looking for a gorgeous, great, playful or funky way to add appeal and allure to your outfit? Why not place a fashionable hat on your head? Enough said!

When it comes to the face, the eyes have it! Sure, the mouth runs a close second, but as most people know, your eyes are the first feature that people notice when they look at you (even if they aren’t aware of it). When applying makeup, even minimally, for attention getting results, focus on the eyes. For starters and most importantly? Long eyelashes!
Extra coats of mascara help turn lashes into long layers of lusciousness, but false eyelashes bring out your eyes, and accentuate other facial features, in a way no other item can. False eyelashes kick every other makeup accessory to the curb!
0c427e38d3e35ba0d39be5a6ad2a1784false-lashesfun-false-eyelashes-800X8001-DSCI30313
False eyelashes are available in different shapes and sizes, from a more subdued, natural look to an over-the-top theatrical look.
False Eyelashes Tip: If you prefer a rounder, more symmetrical eye, have the lashes extend longer in the center. For dramatic, almond eyes, the lashes should extend longer at the ends.
How To Apply False Eyelashes:

  1. Select the size and length of lashes that work for you.
  2. If you want to add extra curl to the lashes, use an eyelash curler before applying the lashes.
  3. If using eyelash glue, apply a thin line to the lash strip from the tube. Allow the glue to dry for ten seconds. If the lashes already contain adhesive, you won’t need glue.
  4. Apply the strip of lashes so they lie against your own lash line (your fingers or tweezers work well to position the lashes). Pat them into place.
  5. Apply mascara if you prefer. This helps blend your natural lashes and false lashes together.

False Eyelash Fun Fact: You can go to any beauty supply store and purchase individual lashes and create your own row of eyelashes. Also, eyelash extensions can be applied to save you the time and effort of putting on fake lashes.
The longer the lashes – the more popping the peepers!

Whenever I see someone wearing false eyelashes, their eyes look beautiful and I notice them right away. Your own eye is just drawn to the gorgeous aura that it radiates. Long, splendid eyelashes bring out your face in a way nothing else can.
I’ve said it before, as a fashion gal who loves wearing makeup, if I could only pick one item to apply, it would have to be mascara! (Long, fake lashes look even better). Lipstick or lip gloss runs a close second!

When you’re ready to remove the lashes (“But I don’t want to!” you say) oh, well just put them back on another day! Apply warm water to a wash cloth and dab the water on your eyes. Grasp the outer edge of the false eyelash strip and gently pull the strip from the corner.
False Eyelashes Not So Fun Fact: Don’t pull the false lash strip too strongly or you might pull some actual eyelashes out as well. Ouch!
When you wear false lashes your face will be a hit – because as any fashion diva knows, the eyes have it!
Powerful pizzazz those peepers!
Yes, you’ll never go wrong when your peepers are decorated with lashes oh so long!
