Weekend Inspiration: Big Beautiful Lashes

28 Jun

Happy Monday Babydolls!!!! I hope that everyone had an eventful and fun weekend. I very much enjoyed mine AND I received some awesome inspiration!!! This week will be totally devoted to makeup. I’m mainly focusing on eyes and skin this week. I will also give tips on caring for your makeup brushes and other tools.

Today’s post is all about falsies (fake eye lashes). I love falsies because they add so much drama to the eyes and really make them *POP*. I love love LOVE strip lashes. They scream old school sass and femininity. Nothing like batting those baby browns to get what you want from the booski LOL. But seriously though Babydoll, lashes are a great way to spice up your look and it is relatively easy to apply them.

Lash set from Sephora

Here’s what you’ll need:

1. lashes (your choice of strip or individual)
2. glue ( using dark brown or black lash glue dries with no white flakes)
3. tweezers
4. manicure or hair scissors

If you are using strip lashes, my advice is to cut them in half to make application easier. You can even cut them in fourths but be careful with this method so that when you apply the lashes they don’t look jagged and uneven. Once you have cut your strips or opened the packaging on your individuals, you can begin applying them. Squeeze out a little glue and holding the lash with your tweezers, dip the weft end in the glue. Wait about 15 to 20 seconds; this allows the glue to become tacky and less runny. Ensure that you don’t apply too much glue; you will have trouble removing them. Apply the lashes as close to your natural lash line as you can get them. Hold them in place with the tweezers for 10 seconds to set and release. Keep applying lashes until you have achieved your desired fullness and look. Once you have finished applying lashes, follow with a few coats of your fav. mascara. Personally I dig (with a major passion) Chanel Exceptionnel Lash! It has a 6-sided brush that is to DIE for! I also love love love Dior Show. Whatever brand you decide to use is up to you. From here, you can let your imagination run wild! Experiment with eyeliner and create sexy  60’s cat eyes or get golden like the 70’s. To remove them, simply use a eye makeup remover.

Here are a few pics of my eyes after I used lashes.
