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
