In false eyelashes (also called faux lashes or falsies) we trust! They’re the answer to a sweeping fringe in seconds. Made from synthetic fibre or sterilized human hair (I know it sounds gross, but ignore the specifics) these beauty additions amplify your dreamy eyes instantly.
If you’re a newbie, be sure to read the instructions carefully. Apply the glue in dots not excessively, so as to assure your false lashes don’t clump up. Trim the length of each individual lash or strip to fit your eyes perfectly, not too long and not too short. Lastly, apply mascara afterwards for uniformity.
Remember to wait thirty seconds after applying the glue before placing each lash or strip. Never use falsies if you’re recovering from a rash or eye infection. If the adhesive does manage to get into your eye by mistake, wash out with warm water and if irritation or redness persist visit a doctor as quickly as possible.
How to pick the right falsies
With numerous products flooding the markets and equally rave reviews, how does one choose the perfect faux-pair? It’s actually quite simple; there are two main components to factor in. One, the shape of your eyes and second the occasion.
If you have smaller eyes, use individual lashes to complement your face. For bigger, bolder almond eyes use strips to elongate. Keep it simple, classy and formal for a more natural look during the day. At night dare to go wild, experiment with luxuriously long lashes, glitter, metallic tones and amp up the curls!
