I bet it wasn’t too long ago you looked in a magazine or saw a mascara commercial where the model’s eye lashes were all the way to the ceiling and the claim was that “Triple Lash Super Long” Mascara did it. You found the same mascara in the store and applied it on your own lashes, and got half the effect. This is because the REAL secret is false lashes.
False lashes give your eye makeup that extra volume and depth. They really finish off your look and add that extra polished look to your makeup that really stands out.
Do want beautiful eye makeup that stands out from a mile away? Do you want a cost effective way to look camera ready at all times? Do you want the real secret to celebrity makeup? Trust and believe, it’s all in the lashes.
Why I Love False Lashes
They’re Cost Effective
I’m sure there are false lashes out there that cost more than 50$, but cost is not factor for great lashes. You’ll find that some of the best brands of falsies are quite attainable, whether you find them in bulk on Ebay or go to your local beauty supply store or pharmacy and buy them a pair at a time. Brands such as Ardell and Modlash are under ten dollars, and look fabulous on anyone.
Besides the lashes themselves, you will also need glue. Many eyelashes sets have glue included. With many brands, you can wash the glue of the lashes and use them again, getting even more of a bang for your buck.
Easy to Apply
After a couple of Youtube videos and some practice, you can easily apply lashes. You might be a little clumsy at first, but once you get the technique down, it’s no more than ten minutes added to your beauty routine. Simply line the lash with glue, let the glue get tacky, and apply to your lash line. Make sure the false lashes blend with your own lashes. Apply eyeliner and mascara, then you’re finished.

If you want even more of an outstanding look, apply eye shadow beforehand. You can also visit your local beauty salon, that has eyelashes as a part of their service menu. Getting your lashes done at a salon is a great alternative to doing them yourself if you only put them in for special occasions.
