For all your beauty advice…
I don’t usually wear false lashes, I’ve purchased them before, and they’ve sat in a drawer, forgotten. I have been wanting to kick up my look a little, and thought I would start playing around with false lashes. I got my hands on some Naturalites, by Eylure. #1 bestselling lash in the UK, and now they’re available in the U.S. of A.
I think the hardest thing about false lashes is the application. I will admit, this is one area of beauty that I typically steer away from because applying lashes is so challenging. But, once you get the hang of it, they go on pretty easy. Follow the step-by-step directions, and you will be able to do it. Make sure you use tweezers, or a lash applicator, because using your fingers feels impossible…to me. I know some people who can whip them on with their hands and they make it look so easy…I am not that person!
So, now that you’ve gotten them on, how do they feel? Well, in the past, most false lashes have felt heavy on my eyelids, or they have felt like they’re poking me in the eye, and I think that’s why I just nixed them altogether. Eylure lashes are very light, and while I could tell I was wearing a little something extra, they weren’t weighing my lids down and feeling uncomfortable.
And how do they look? SO GOOD!! Once I had the lashes in place, I really liked the look I ended up with. Lashes give your eyes so much dimension, and they really make a statement.
Now to answer the question I always get asked, and the one I used to ask myself: Do I put my eye makeup on before or after I apply the lashes? The best advice I can give is this: Prime your eyes for shadow, apply your shadow and liner, then apply your lashes. The last step should be to swipe some mascara over your permanent, and “borrowed” lashes to bind the two together for the best results!
