Unleash those Lashes.

False lashes seem to be one of those things that a lot of people are afraid of.  It seems people are often intimidated by them.  I probably once was too, but then one day I just went for it, and I’ve loved them ever since!  I don’t wear them too often, but when I do, boy I feel glamorous!

The biggest thing I had to learn in my endeavor to learn to wear false lashes was to allow the glue to get tacky.  You absolutely have to let the glue dry for about 30 seconds before trying to place the lashes on your eye.  Otherwise they like to slip around and it’s hard to place them exactly where you want them.

Not everyone was born with a full thick set of lashes, but false ones are an inexpensive way to really take your everyday makeup look up a notch.  I don’t love the feel of how heavy the false lashes can be sometimes, so I’ll usually cut the lash strip in half and just apply them to the outer edges of my eyes. This is more comfortable for me, and one set of lashes is like two!

After the lashes are applied, I like to go over the lash line with a black eyeshadow to make sure there is no glue peeking out.

So don’t be afraid.  Embrace the false lashes and unleash your inner beauty goddess.
