Lash Attack

15 Oct

One trend that will never go out of style for celebrities are fake eyelashes, which are a must on the red carpet.  If you are going for a night out and want the same effect, read on for my personal (and simple!) tips on how to achieve lush lashes:

Kim Kardashian is rarely spotted without her false lashes.

Note: Be sure to have your makeup applied beforehand, as false lashes may get in the way later.

1.  Trim the lash strip, if necessary, to fit the size of your eye.

2.  Apply glue to the lash band and let dry for about 30 seconds, or until glue is tacky.

3.  Using tweezers or your fingers, place the strip directly on your lash line.  It may help to start from the outer corners first.

4.  Once dry, apply liquid liner over lash line to hide any glue residue.  Mascara may also be added if you want a more dramatic look.

*To remove, simply dip a Q-tip into eye makeup remover solution and trace over your lash line.  Allow the solution to soak in for 5-7 seconds, then gently pull off lashes starting from the outer corner.  Wash carefully and return to box.  Lashes may be re-used for up to three weeks.

Some of my favorite lashes and where to get ’em?  I personally think MAC Cosmetics makes great lashes, but if you’re looking for something a little cheaper, drugstore brands are fine too!  I really like ModLash and Ardell, they have a variety of lash shapes to choose from and the lash band is thin so they are flexible as well.  The only thing I don’t like about drugstore brands is that they don’t last as long after a couple of uses, but when you consider the price difference, it makes sense.  I have also found amazing lashes at Macy’s once (the last place I would ever look for eyelashes), and they lasted quite a long time and never lost shape.  It’s really not about where you get them, but how you put them on and and how they look on your eyes. ;]

Good luck with putting on your lashes!
