False Eyelashes – False eyelashes are of the sizable fashion trends this season. These brilliant beauty accessories are getting a immense amount of exposure on tv at the moment from stars doubling up on eyelashes on X-Factor to glamorous eye-catching lashes on Strictly Come Dancing.
There’s two main types of false eyelashes that are available to buy both on the high street & online. These are strip false eyelashes & individual false eyelashes. Strip false lashes are usually more popular than individual ones, as they are faster to apply. Individual lashes must be glued to each eyelash you require to lengthen. They do however last a lot longer than strip lashes.
False eyelashes are worn by teenagers and women of all ages (and in some cases men too!) The style of lash depends on both the person and the occasion. Some lashes are far too extreme for daytime wear and are often saved for parties or special occasions.
Why wear false eyelashes? Not all women are blessed with luscious long lashes and look to other ways of lengthening their own. They can draw more attention to your eyes. False lashes can make your own lashes look fuller, but this depends on the thickness of the falsies. Other people who wear false eyelashes do so to make a statement…and boy are some eyelashes eye-catching! Some are super long and thick, while others are luminous in colour.
If you have never tried these beauty accessories before, it is advisable to start with ones that are shorter in length, as they can take some getting useful. Girls With Attitude have a range called Shorties that are designed for everyday wear and are more natural looking than other eyelashes on the market. These lashes are designed for an instant eye lift.
False eyelashes are applied with special lash adhesive, which usually comes in the box with them. This can however be purchased separately. Simply compare the width of the lash band with your own lashes and snip off any excess. Using tweezers hold the eyelash and apply a small amount of eyelash glue along the band. It is really important to ensure that the glue becomes tacky before applying them. This usually takes around 30 seconds. Place the lash as near to your own lash line as possible and press down from the inner to outer corner of your eyes. Hold until they set.
