Let’s talk false eyelashes. I’m all about keeping things real, but there are occasions that call for a little extra glamour; They are a must for gala's, holidays, family photos, weddings, date nights...okay, who am I kidding, I think anytime is a good time for false eyelashes. They can take any look to the next level. The key is to choose the right style to fit the occasion. I prefer a natural look that enhances, not dominates. Here is a video tutorial to apply false eye lashes. Hope you like!



Recap of the video:

Step 1.

Purchase lashes and glue from any beauty or drug store. I’m not tied to any brand of lashes, but my go-to is Ardell. They are inexpensive and in every drugstore; unlike a high quality brand of lashes that can be used over and over, I find Ardell only last one or two applications.

Duo Adhesive is my favourite glue as it holds up throughout the day day and doesn't irritate my eyes.

Step 2.

Check the size of the lashes with your natural lash line. Trim if necessary. Bend the lashes back and forth a few times.

Step 3.

Apply your eye shadow, but wait on eyeliner until after your false eye lashes are in place.

Step 4.

Apply a thin even line of glue along the base of the false lashes. Wait 30 seconds for the glue to set. I continue to gently bend the lashes as I wait.

Step 5.

Look down and attach the lashes as close to your natural lash line as possible. Press gently. I like to use the end of my tweezers to ensure it is sealed. Wait a minute or so to ensure the glue has dried.

Step 6.

Now is the time to apply your liner. I use a damp slanted brush with eye shadow.

Step 7.

Finish off with a coat of Mascara to seal your natural and false lashes together

Get ready to wow!
