Glam up your look: TOWIE style

by Saisha Potts on

It’s a show that has swept our nation and managed to get most of us hooked – a ritual that’s creeping into many households across the UK every Wednesday and Sunday at 10pm on the dot. We learn to love the characters – cheer at their romantic successes and cry (we’ll maybe just inside) at the bitchy rows and friendship break-ups.

But perhaps The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE for short) is most popularly known for its unique sense of style that the lovely Essex ladies showcase. Many characterise the look as fake, but we’re choosing to view it as glam on steroids – just tone it down a tad ladies and you’ll be bang on.

From Lucy’s unending lashes to Lauren Pope’s magnificent pair or even Chloe’s restructured behind – you can’t say these Essex ladies don’t know how to make an effort when it comes to their appearance.

We may not want to go as far as re-creating the Essex rack or rear, but what we love is the flawless and full lashes and perfectly polished pointers.

Unfortunately like most the lovely lasses on the show, we’re not naturally afforded the blessing of super long, thick lashes or perfectly smooth shaped nails. Rest assured ladies creating a classy version of the Essex preened perfection is no longer out of our reach….

In fact, it’s so close, you only need to nip down to your local super market or drug store and pick up your Eyelure lashes of choice and Elegant Touch nails.

Celeb style – Katy Perry Lashes

Katy Perry is idolised by many men for her curvaceous figure and beautiful feminine features – now we can get one step closer to re-creating her look. Eyelure (our fav eyelash brand) and Katy Perry have teamed up to create a selection of lashes inspired by the lovely pop princess herself.

Sweetie Pie: These lashes add subtle length and volume to your own lashes. This set is the perfect option for a discrete day-time look.

Oh Honey: Feeling a little more dramatic? These lashes strike the perfect balance between intensity and naturalness. Perfect for wearing during the day for a volumised and lengthened look or for a fab night out.

Cool Kitty: Want more of an Essex look? These lovely lashes will make your eyes look amazing and certainly leave you standing out from the crowd – for all the right reasons of course!

All about the drama – Double lashes

It’s become a recent trend for lots of ladies to double up on their lashes ready for a night out – well no longer do you have to fork out for multiple pairs of lashes.

Eyelure have bridged the gap and created a new collection of lashes, Double Lashes. They’re intended to give you a full flutter and more intense look.
