Lashes, Falsies & Fascinators for the Durban July

Lashes, Falsies & Fascinators for the <em>Durban July</em>

We’re counting down the days to the 2012 Durban July. Yesterday we showed you what to wear to the July with inspiration from local, South African designers. Today, we’ll show you how to get glam with stylish fascinators, falsies and fabulous, coloured lashes….

  1. You simply can’t go to the Durban July without donning a stylish head piece! We’re absolutely loving this brightly coloured, feather fascinator from The Little Hattery on They promise to deliver your fascinator to you within 48 hours, so if you haven’t got your head gear, you still have time!
  2. A gorgeous fascinator needs gorgeous lashes! Coloured mascara’s are all the rage and perfect for The Durban July! Clarins Instant Definition Mascara in Intense Blue (R235) is great to amp up any eye colour. For more colour options, Inglot has just launched a wonderful range of brightly coloured, bold mascaras like this gorgeous green Colour Play Mascara (R149). For something that’s still colourful, yet more subtle and really brings out green eyes, try YSL’s Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils (R325) in Burgandy (no 5).
  3. Amp up your lashes with falsies like these Medium Flare Individual Lashes from Inglot (R99). They are easier to apply than full falsies and you don’t have to worry about them going wonky as full falsies can often do if you’re not careful.
  4. To ensure your lashes stay put, Duo Adhesive is the number one choice of professional makeup artists. You can buy this magic formula from Inglot (R149).
