There is nothing like fabulous fake lashes.
I use to be scared of fake lashes. But once I got the hang of it, I got so addicted...
Fake lashes are everywhere. From the drug store to specialty retailers, you can get yourself a pair of fake lashes for special occasions or just because.... They add so much depth to one's face, that I couldn't help but fall in love with them.
For those who are apprehensive about using fake lashes, here are 10 easy steps to help make faux lashes your new BFF.
Step 1: Clean your eyelids with an oil-free makeup remover. Eyelids need to be free of makeup because most cosmetics contain oil, which makes it hard for glue to stick.
Step 2: Select your fake lashes. If you are looking for a natural look, pick one that blends perfectly with your natural lashes. But if you are looking for some excitement, pick a dramatic pair.
Step 3: Remove your fake lashes from its pack and hold them using tweezers.
Step 4: Hold the fake lashes over your eyelids to see how well they fit over your natural lashes. Trim the sides of the fake lashes so they don’t extend past your eyelid. You may also need to trim the length.
Step 5: Add adhesive to your fake lashes. Don’t apply too much glue. You may want to put some on your hand or paper as a precaution.
Step 6: Wait for about a minute before applying the fake lashes to your lash line, so that the adhesive can become tacky. Make sure the adhesive doesn’t touch your eyelid.
Step 7: Begin applying your fake lashes from the inside corner. Press and hold the fake lashes as close to the lash line as possible. This step is much easier when tweezers are used.
Step 8: Let the fake lashes dry and then use an eyelash curler to merge your natural and fake lashes together. Apply liquid eyeliner on your eyelids to make your fake lashes look even more natural. You may or may not want to use mascara.
Step 9: To remove fake lashes, use an eye makeup remover. The oil in the eye makeup remover will loosen the fake lashes.
Step 10: Make sure you keep the fake lashes clean if you plan on using them again. Remove adhesive from the fake lashes before reusing.
Like everything else in life, practice makes perfect.
So don't be scared, just have fun with it......
