FAKE EYELASHES 101
Posted on 09 April 2016
Fake Eyelashes are all the rage right now in the beauty scene. Not only are will they help make your eyes pop, but they’ll make you look as gorgeous as ever! Many girls like to wear them on special occasions, while there are those devoted beauty junkies that can’t leave home with a full set of falsies! Here’s everything you need to know about fake eyelashes, which are seriously a beauty staple for many:
Full Lash Strips vs. Individual Lashes
There are two kinds of false lashes you can buy: the single strip that goes over your entire lid area and individual lashes that you can easily place anywhere on your lid to add some fullness to your lashes. Some prefer the full lash strips since they provide a more dramatic look, while others like to simply boost their natural lashes with individual ones. Both are glued on to one’s lid and many feel that individual lashes are easier to put on since you don’t have to worry about setting the entire strip perfectly. However, it’s really a personal choice.
There are many actual types of lashes styles and it depends on the look you’re going for. If you have smaller eyes, you’ll want to elongate your eyes so look for lashes that are actually thicker in the outer corner to add length. If your eyes are wide set, you’ll want to concentrate your lashes in the center of your eye to really open them up. But if you have deep-set eyes, use longer lash strips that can really lengthen your eye.
If you prefer strip lashes, you’ll need to size them to your specific eye for a great fit. Simply trim them down using cuticle scissors since strips that are too long are hard to maneuver.
Putting Them On
Practice makes perfect and it’ll probably take you a few tries before you get it right. Simply squeeze some Duo adhesive to the back of your hand and then use a cuticle stick or safety pin to lightly dab the glue to the lash strip. Wait about 15 seconds for it to get tacky and then lay the strip on the outer edge of you eye. Try to get them as close to the lash line as possible. Then once on, use one to two coats of mascara to blend with your natural lashes.
Taking Them Off
Simply use an oil-free eye makeup remover to soften the glue and the strip should slide right off!
