Eyelash Stacking

4 Jul

Today is definitely a very informative post- I will teach you how to get the fake eyelash look you’ve always wanted. It’s all about picking out the right lashes and knowing which pairs to stack (yes, I mean wearing two pairs of eyelashes at once!) if you have trouble finding the right kind. So let’s get right down to it.

I personally think cat-eyes look best on any girl, as they are natural (to guys anyway) yet can still enhance your look dramatically. You see, an eye is supposed to get more dramatic from the inside to out, and you should always look for lashes that are shorter on the inside and longer on the outside. It’s simple right? Unfortunately, it’s very rare to find lashes that are shaped like this. Usually falsies are made where they are longer in the middle, or just the same length throughout. That cannot possibly look natural, and does not do much to enhance the eye. Here is an example of a cat-eye lash:

Not only do falsies have to be in the cat-eye shape, but they need volume. If the lashes are spread far apart, they won’t give you that full look, which is the whole point of fake lashes anyway.

Lastly, falsies need to be long and voluminous. Always reach for the stars and buy the longer pair, because I’ve never had a problem with lashes being too long; they’re usually too short. After awhile, you will develop an intuition where you just KNOW how the lash will look on you. Trust me. Here’s an¬†example of perfect length, also from Forever 21’s collection:

Now onto the fun part: eyelash stacking! I have seen all types of falsies and I’m still searching for the perfect pair (it’s similar to looking for a husband). Until then, I’ll just have to wear two. So for that glamorous night look, I like to put two strips of falsies on my eyes. I recommend putting the volumed lashes on the bottom, then the lengthy ones on top. It will look better if you literally stick the first pair onto your eye, then glue the second pair on top. This way, you will know how to guide the second pair rather than putting two pairs of ready-made lashes onto your eye. Here’s the two pairs above, stacked:

So now that you know the secrets to getting the perfect pairs of lashes, get out there and start experimenting!

Product Review: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

So I’ve finally decided to splurge on a great waterproof eyeliner, and after reading countless reviews online (a true beauty guru does her research), I went with Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. A lot of people raved that it stayed on all day (as the name promises) and that it was easy to use. I desperately wanted a good waterproof eyeliner for those Audrey Hepburn in-the-rain moments, as every girl should be prepared for those at any given time!

After purchasing and trying it myself, I definitely can agree! What I personally loved about the liner was that it was shaped like a pen- I loved that I had complete control. The tip was very sharp and left no room for mistakes. The one thing I don’t like about it, however, is that it wasn’t dark enough for me, even though it was in the darkest shade (Intense Black). It just wasn’t as dark as my regular liquid liners, although for a pen-type of liner I think that’s the best it’s gonna get.

The Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner comes in a variety of colors and can be found for $20 at Sephora or on Amazon.
