Antipodean Beauties - Lashes


I am super excited - today is my first time participating in a new makeup challenge I discovered run by the gorgeous and bubbly Omega (whose blog you can check out here - her looks for this challenge are amazing!) Basically the Antipodean Beauties challenge is for Aussies and Kiwis, and is much like the Weekly Makeup Tag run by the lovely Aqeela (whose blog you can check out here - also amazing looks!) except anybody taking part in this challenge hosts their own post, rather than it being in one collective place like on Aqeela's blog!

This week's challenge is Lashes! I was a little bit stumped at what I could possibly do to make this interesting, as I'm not very creative when it comes to makeup looks! (Which is a reason I joined this challenge as well, it's a great way to experiment!)

I ended up deciding on a simple FOTD featuring some of my newest favourite lashes - the Daiso Volume Long Straight Type D Lashes. These babies cost a measly $2.80 from Daiso, and while they are plastic, they are actually pretty flexible and easy to position on the eye!

These babies really make my small eyes pop!

As this was a challenge dedicated to lashes, I did a very simple makeup look! I used only foundation and eyeliner, so as not to distract away from the beautiful lashes!



So like I said, this one is probably a bit boring in comparison to the other ladies taking part in this challenge, only because I'm completely new to the group and still a little shy!

Make sure you check out all the other lovely ladies taking part!

  6. Very pretty, and I cant believe you got the lashes for just $2.80. Bargain!!
    Only been to Daiso once, but seen that there is going to be a new Daiso store opening at Chadstone (may already be open) which means that I get to check it out more often!
