I have recently been experimenting with false eyelashes, and I must say that the old cliche of "practice makes perfect" is really true. I clumsily applied my first set a few months ago, when girls on YouTube were inspiring me to give them a try. Well, I failed miserably my first time around! I applied them way too high on my eyelids and looked like a total mess! Frustrated, I had my best friend apply a set for me one afternoon while we were getting ready for her 24th birthday party. When I looked into the mirror after she had finished, I was taken aback by how my eyes stood out. I was not blessed with long, full lashes. No, mine are short and rather sparse. I always curl the heck out of them though, and use many coats of black mascara so often I am satisfied with the way they look. But there is nothing like a nice set of falsies ;) And I am actually getting better and better at applying them! I'm no expert, and I only wear them on special occasions but I am very pleased at my recent progress. If anyone knows of any special tricks or techniques that makes the process even easier, please share them with me...For now, I'll keep practicing!

~My best friend and I on her bday, first time wearing false lashes~


~Now I can apply them by myself...sort of~


Am I the only one who has had issues with this? Hmmmmm...Happy Friday!

  1. I love false lashes. I love the dramatic and natural looking ones. Ever since I learned how to do it right, I would always put them on. I'm not blessed with long lashes and it makes a huge difference whenever I have it on.

    I still remember the first time I tried it. My eyes were burning because I never stopped til I got it right lol.

    You look absolutely amazing with it!

  2. i've been wearing false lashes for the past 5 years so now I can put them on in less than a minute however when I first started it took me over an hour! i just couldn't get them right. It's def. not easy at first.

    Glad you didn't give up on them, you look great!

  3. They look good! I wear them almost everyday, and learned that cutting them so they fit with the size of your eyes. I remember when I first started wearing them it took me forever to put them on!!
