And trust when we say that false eyelashes are something that anyone can use no matter how amateur your makeup skills. It might take a little bit of practice and some trial and error, but the work will be well worth it when you can rock long luxurious lashes that rival your favorite celeb’s!
How to Choose a Good Pair of False Eyelashes
The first thing you need to know about wearing false eyelashes is that they are not created equal. There are so many different varieties of false eyelashes out there ranging from cheap ones from the drugstore to mid-range to luxury brands that only produce false eyelashes. When it comes to false eyelashes, quality is key – so you want to purchase them from a company that really knows their stuff and is able to produce top-quality products that are worth the buy. We personally love silk lashes that come with a cotton band that is super light and comfortable to make it feel like you aren’t even wearing anything extra! Find a style that works well with your eye shape and make sure to check customer reviews before you purchase anything to ensure quality, durability, and customer service.
Types of False Eyelashes
Depending on your personal style, you might prefer one type of false eyelashes over another. There are three main types of false eyelashes that include individual lashes, cluster lashes, and strip lashes. Individual lashes are small sections of lashes that allow you to focus on areas that need a boost. If you go with a natural length and really put some time into the application, individual lashes can really blend in with your real lashes and look really natural. Cluster lashes are great for beginners because they don’t require as much skill when it comes to application. The sections are small enough to put on easily but still provide a lot of emphasis to certain areas of your eye. Finally, we have strip lashes that are designed to go across the entire eye in one fell swoop. This is the most popular type of false lashes and they come in a variety of different styles that range from super dramatic to more natural. Application of strip lashes is a bit trickier than the others because there’s less room for error but is easy to learn with some practice.
False lashes also come in a variety of different materials with a wide price range. At the bottom of the list are synthetic eyelashes that are made from plastics. If you are looking for something more premium but still affordable, you might want to try silk eyelashes that are soft and comfortable. You could also go with mink lashes or faux-mink lashes if you have concerns about animal cruelty or want a vegan product.
How to Do Your Makeup With False Eyelashes
When it comes to doing your makeup with false eyelashes, you have a lot of room to be creative and have fun. False lashes act as icing on the cake for a killer makeup look – so make sure to apply them as the last step during your eye makeup application process. False lashes look amazing with bold eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner, and tamed brows. There’s really no need for mascara when it comes to false lashes, but if you want you can curl your natural lashes and apply a thin coat of mascara before application so that they blend into the false lashes more seamlessly.
How to Take Care of False Eyelashes
Depending on the type of false eyelashes you use, the care will differ. However, we love false eyelashes that are reusable because you can really get the most bang for your buck! While these do require a bit more maintenance – it’s totally worth it. When removing your false lashes, be gentle and start from the corners. Then remove any extra adhesive from the lash band. If necessary, you can soak them in warm soapy water to remove eye makeup, sweat, etc. Finally, you should store them in the original case until it’s time for the next wear!
Now that you’re a newfound expert on false lashes, it’s time to get out there and find some amazing pairs that can accent your unique eye shape and reflect your personal style. Be sure to go with high-quality lashes that you can use multiple times and take care of them so that you can really get your money’s worth. It might take some getting used to at first, but once you’ve got it down you will wonder what you ever did without false lashes.
