Sacred Lashes - Sacred Lashes was born out of the beleif that professional makeup artistry products should be of the highest quality but should also cater for individual creative expression. We've therefore taken influences from the glamerous 1920s and combined them with a rich background in make-up for fashion, film & stage.
We also believe that a Lady should be able to release her inner Diva without having to go through too much fuss and bother. So whether you're a regular junkie who simply wants to enhance your natural beauty or if you're more daring, and feel like adorning your lashes with works of art, we're sure there's a sacred lash for all.
We offer a variety of styles which are made from 100% human hair. These can be worn daily without causing damage to your natural lash line. Certain styles are recommended for an every day natural day look while others are more suited for evenings or special occassions.
But the choice is entierly yours. Be as fabulous as you dare!
Every set of Sacred Lashes comes with a complimentary mini bottle of clear glue so that you can start using your lashes straight away. Its a hypo allegenic non toxic formulation suitable for even the most sensitive eyes. We would however highly recommend DUO Eyelash Adhesive for a stronger water proof bond. It will ensure you get longer wear out of your lashes and is still suitable for every day use.

Abiola Aso Oke - Modern/ traditional Aso Oke fabric used in producing clothing and Home accessories such as throw pillows, tissue boxes, bags/pouches etc
