False Eyelashes- The Comprehensive Guide


Eyelashessss!!!!

Comprehensive false eyelashes guide

I avoided false eyelashes for a long time. In college, I bought a pair from MAC to wear with my Playboy Bunny halloween costume (yeah, I was that girl.) I found them horribly uncomfortable, and couldn't wait to rip them off my eyelids the entire night. I'd only worn them on a handful of other occasions over the years, and I regretted it every time. Always the same- they were uncomfortable, they looked fake, and I didn't know how to put them on right.

Last fall, however, I started trying again. I was determined to step up my game in the style post department, as I'd seen so many lovely fashion bloggers donning the falsies with such grace. I did some googling. I did some youtube-ing. I tried a few more times, and now I'm a total convert. I even use them for daily wear- running around to get my groceries and whatnot.

It turns out you just need a few tricks and some practice before you can really rock them to their fullest potential. And while I don't claim to be an eyelashes guru, I do think I can give some tactical advice!

So I've devised a a three part series about how to choose them and rock them-

Part 1- Styles and brands
Part 2- Types of glue, and finally
Part 3- How to put on the suckers

I was going to make Part 1 a part of this post, but the whole thing started to run very long. So I'm making it it's own post instead- it will go up tomorrow. So get ready!

And believe me, I never thought I'd have this much to say about false eyelashes, but evidently I do.

Hope you all have a lovely day. xx

  2. I recently got eyelash extensions while being a guinea pig for a friend going to school to be an esthetician and I have never loved eyelashes more! I used to not be so into mascara, but now I love love love the long lashes I don't even need mascara but I feel like i don't want to go without lashes like these again! I've had them for almost 3 weeks now and most are still on strong!

  9. Yay I can't wait for this, it always takes me way too long to put on falsies so I usually can't be bothered!
