Did you know that talk show titan Oprah Winfrey won't leave home without them? And Hollywood's reality tv star Kim Kardashian had supposedly cancelled a celebrity appearance because her makeup artist had forgotten to bring them?
We're talking about false eyelashes. Most women on television and in the movies, and at red carpet events, all wear long, thick eyelashes. And probably 95% of these beautiful fringes enhancing the eyes, are really false eyelashes.
Sure, if you have your own celebrity makeup artist, then lucky you. But for the rest of us mere mortals or eyelash-challenged beauties, well, we have to learn how to apply false eyelashes. And to many, the process looks rather intimidating. But one thing is true, the longer and thicker your lashes are, the more beautiful and larger your eyes look. It's a no-brainer.
Most women reserve the false fringe for a special night out or on weekends. But there are some women who wear naturally-looking false eyelashes every day.
You really just need 2 beauty products to achieve this attractive, eye-framing look:
False eyelashes and Lash adhesive.
You wouldn't want your lashes to fall off, or hang carelessly in the breeze. And believe us, there are false eyelash mishaps occassionally.
Try MAC Lash Adhesive ($8). The benefit to this glue is its color. It goes on white, so you can see exactly how close to the lashline you are getting. And then dries clear. And really keeps fake lashes put.
Try Andrea ModLash Strip Lash ($3.29). This brand has been around a long time, and has legions of fans. Easy false lashes to put on. They look natural. And you can dispose of them after a night out, or keep them for about 3 more applications. By the way, Allure magazine has given Andrea lashes the big thumbs up.
Don't be afraid to try making bigger, more amazing eyes with false eyelashes. Practice makes perfect. It's just like liquid eyeliner---not an easy beauty item to use at first, but once you get the hang of it, the results are really pretty.
