Fake Eyelashes 101

In the past three months or so, I've been massively into false eyelashes. Not that I wear them on a daily basis but I love them on nights out or when I'm wearing loads of eyemakeup. But it's definitely been a journey as the first time I wore them, I essentially glued them to the centre of my eyelid. Like I said, it's been a journey.

But I've pretty much mastered it, and if I can do them, the so can you.

First step is the lashes. Now I'm not a big big lashes girl, I prefer slightly more natural styles like the Ardell Demi Wispies which depending on how I'm feeling, I either trim or wear as they are. Personally, I look for lashes that have a thin or clear band because then it doesn't matter too much if they're not perfect because you're not risking a thick black band making it obvious. Personal other favourites include Tanya Burr Bambi Lashes and the Eyelure Cheryl Lashes

Second is getting the glue right. I'm pretty sure Duo Lash Adhesive is a bit of a cult favourite and I see why. But the trick is to get it tacky which means letting it "dry" for 30 seconds and then it's a breeze. Top tip, you can also get it in a colour that dries dark if that works better for you!

Third, measure your lashes. Place the dry lash (NO GLUE) onto your eye and work out whether you need to trim it or not. I personally always trim the inner lashes to avoid them irritating my inner eye but make sure it works for your eye shape.

And finally, if you're a complete beginner, cut your lashes up. I found that cutting the lashes into three large pieces meant that it was easier to apply and I was far more likely to get them spot on.

Are you a false lash girl or not? Any helpful tips?
