Makeup Artist Testimonials
Silvia Leczel, Makeup Artist:
The reason I love Ardell lashes is because anyone can afford them! They come in every shape and size, so there is a lash that fits every woman's style! It's funny, but when I do a celebrity's makeup, they already know what Ardell lash they want me to use before I even ask! That always makes it so much easier and that's why I always keep an array of different Ardell lashes in my professional makeup case. Also, I can't live without the Ardell DuraLash Natural! They are perfect for creating a natural look!
When I do Layla Ali's makeup, she most commonly requests the Ardell #110 or Ardell Babies. For "America's Next Top Model" winner Adrienne Curry and the "Real Housewives of Orange County" Lori Waring, I use Ardell Wispies. To really glam up supermodel Cheryl Tiegs' eyes, I add a few Ardell Medium Flare Individual Lashes in black just on the outer corner of her eyes. On top of the individuals, I also add Ardell Demi Wispies. To finish off the look, I add a little mascara and "poof" instant glamour!
For Oscar Red Rarpet 2010, it was all about the eyes! On the eyes I used a light champagne shimmery eye-shadow, a thin black liner on top of the shadow near the lash line, Ardell Wispies with loads of black mascara, a soft coral/pinkish cheek and soft nude lip gloss. Now you're red carpet ready!
Melanie Mills, Makeup Artist for "Dancing with the Stars":
Ardell is truly my number one choice when I go for lashes. I love the variety and how long they last. When you pull them off the packaging, they don't curl up or wobble around! I especially love the Invisi-Bands for a "no-makeup look". You can't even tell you have lashes on! On "Dancing with the Stars", we literally go through hundreds of lashes: We double them, cut them and layer them. Our favorites on the show is are the Ardell Wispies, Demi Wispies, #117, #118, #114, and the #115.
Outside of "Dancing with The Stars", I use Ardell Lashes with every look! Ardell # 103 is a nice natural lash, and I love throwing on Ardell Individuals all over lash line or just on the upper corners. I have used Ardell lashes on Toni Braxton, Brooke Brurke, Kate Gosselin, Pam Anderson, Lil' Kim, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Scherzinger, Jane Seymore, Priscilla Presley, Shawn Johnson, Natalie Coughlin, Mel B, Macy Gray, Kelly Osbourne, Sharon Osbourne, Tia Carrere, and Megan Hilty.
Wendi San George, Makeup Artist for "The Chelsea Handler Show":
I use Ardell lashes on all my shows because of how they frame the eyes: Not applying Ardell lashes is like finishing a painting and not putting it in a beautiful frame to show it off! Picking the correct style truly depends upon my clients eyes, but one of my favorite styles is the Ardell #106 and Ardell Wispies. I absolutely love the way the Ardell #106 fit and how they just add the right amount of drama. They give the effect of individual lashes, but save me so much time, and Ardell Wispies enhance my shading just perfectly with a length that looks sexy and natural all in one!
Adding DUO in black as my lash adhesive is almost like having an instant eye liner. I like to use tweezers to apply the lashes because this allows me to angle my lash band down to the natural lash line for a very real look in my application. 1- 2 -3 and I am done! Over my 30 year career as a make up artist, Ardell lashes have followed me to my shows such as "The Weakest Link", "Deal Or No Deal", "Last Comic Standing", "The Chelsea Handler Show", "Americas Got Talent", "Minute To Win It", and many, many more!
Joy A. Johnson, Makeup Artist & Ardell International Educator:
Ardell has always been my go to beauty product to add to all of my makeup clients, long before I became an Educator for them. Whether you are a Lash Virgin or Lash Veteran the instant gratification you get from Ardell Lashes are unlike anything in your makeup bag.
The Key to great lashes is proper application, pairing a lash that is complimentary to the eye, and a touch of Ardell's Lash Magic Mascara to blend and a curl with Ardell's Heated Eyelash Curler. I LOVE the reaction from a woman that I have just Lashed Out with Ardell's its always PRICE LESS! My faves are 110's (The Everyone Lash), Demi Wispies (For a Fluffy Sexy Look) and Babies (For the Subtle Look).
