Underwater shoot - eyelashes

I've got my first underwater shoot and i'm very excited I don't trust any of my make up enough to risk wearing it in case it runs so was planning on going without but I was wandering if there's any sort of false eyelashes that wont be ruined in the water ?x Any advice would be greatly appreciated .

Hi Belle, how about Water proof mascara? Then you wouldn't worry about the false lashes coming off? x

Armani currently have a completely water proof range of make up. It's like bleeding oil paint to remove! But I bet there is a chaper option.

I was reluctant to use mascarra as both my mascarras are meant to be waterproof and i've proved many a times with them and others that are meant to be waterproof that it not the case , will have a look into what you've all suggested , thank you x

have you tried just using your mascara then spraying hair spray over your eyes/face...your make up stays on no matter what then x

That dosn't work and is ridiculously bad for your skin x

OMG, I hope this is a joke....

There is a waterproof eyelash glues you can buy its called Duo, it comes in black which is handy as you dont get that glue colour on your eyelid it blends a lot better. Good quality eyelashes should hold up fine for the duration your under the water.

To be honest it is very specialist subject,  and I would reccommend booking a pro if you want amazing results as like me they will have a kit full of waterproof make up that is meant to hold up when completley submerged underwater and they can keep an eye on whats happening throughout the shoot and make changes if needed.
