False Eyelashes – Tips and Tricks

In today’s busy world, the savvy fashionable girl knows that change is definitely inevitable and can happen over night! We can change our hair colour in a few hours; add length to it in a few minutes and swipe on some lipstick with shades that run from neutrals in the morning, pink for that important lunch meeting and don’t-stop-till-you-get-enough red for that fabulous evening. All of those are essential changes in the fashionista’s daily look, but did you also know that your mink eyelashes(which are the showstopper for the eyes) could change just as quickly and easy! Go on you say? As a matter of fact… I will!!Aurnt

False eyelashes are a quick and easy way to brighten up those blues, glorify those greens or make those bodacious browns pop out and say “Well hello there big world! Show me what ya got!!” And the best part about it is, that the mink eyelashes of today are not the same ones your mother painstakingly put on with a pair of tweezers and made her look like she had on a few too many coats of her clumpiest mascara! Oh no ladies… we have choices.

The most common and easiest mink eyelashes are our old trusty, the one strip lash. This bad girl has been new and improved and gives the entire eye that million-dollar look. Her younger sister, the singles, which are individual lashes to be placed where needed, can usually be found hanging out in the outer corner of the eye; it gives any lash line that come hither gaze. Their newer and more outrageous cousin is the variety lash – she changes shapes and colours faster than a speeding bullet and can be seen on the techno runways, high fashion photo shoots, Halloween or the latest sci-fi flick. There are a ton more that belong to the Lash family, but these three are the ambassadors and the easiest to get your hands on. (Just ask J. Lo about them- she knows them well!)

These false eyelashes are always ready for a night on the town, but they also will not take up your whole evening applying them. Lashes are now easier then ever to apply and remove! It may take a few times to become a pro at application, but remember, you need to get on that pink bike with the awesome tassels sometime or another if you are going to strut your stuff all the way down to the end of the block!

Here are a couple tips:

1:Before applying lash adhesive, make sure the length of the lash band will fit your eyes so that your mink eyelashes will be comfortable. You don’t want your lashes to start too close to the tear duct, or go beyond your natural lash line. You may have to snip a small section off if you eyes are smaller.

2:Apply eyeshadow and mascara. This way your lashes will be the same color as the false pair and blend in better.

3:Apply a thin line of DUO adhesive to the lash band. DUO comes in white, which dries clear, and also dark tone, which dries black. I highly recommend the clear for beginners!

4:Allow the adhesive to dry for about 30 seconds. This allows it to become slightly tacky and easier to apply.

5:Get close to a mirror and apply the mink eyelashes onto the eyelid as close to the lash line as possible. Keep eyes relaxed and adhesive will be set in no time!

6:Finish off with liquid or gel liner.

Simple note on that, lashes can and will change they way your eyes look. They make your eyes look more open and bigger. End of story. My rule: If you cannot decide what you are going to wear- put on false eyelashes, everyone will be looking at your beautiful eyes to even care if your socks match.
