I love fake lashes/ falsies/ false lashes. They instantly take your face from cute and pretty to GLAM. There is a reason why all of the celebs use it….it’s because it’s like wearing a pushup bra, it gives your face that extra oomph.
Another reason I like fake lashes is because I don’t need to wear MASCARA. I love mascara as much as the next girl, but unfortunately, I hate the whole “taking off mascara” part, and I feel like my lashes are slowly thinning out.
Long story short: fake lashes are great, but living in Atlanta, I can’t just go to the MAC counter to always get them put on me for a couple of reasons:
- It literally would be an hour situation (I do not have the time or patience drive to Lenox, get them put on and then drive back — um, hello, Atlanta’s traffic is ratchet!)
- It gets expensive. It’s a $12-$15 purchase every single time I get MAC to put them on (also, I should add in another $20 cost, due to me purchasing other MAC goodies every time I go!)
I recently went to CVS and saw this brand called “KISS” they have a string applicator. I used them with and without the string, and lets just say I REALLY LOVE THEM.
- They were incredibly easy to put on with the string
- I used Duo’s black eyelash glue
- It cost me $4
You can only use the strings once, unless you can figure out how to loop them back into the lashes, but I also decided to finally master fake lashes — I turned to my lovely friend YouTube and found this video:
The video is really long, so just fast forward it to the 6.20 mark!
TIP: After I apply the glue to my lashes I blow on them, and I also sing “Happy Birthday” twice in my head. After I’m done with my singing session, my glue is TACKY! Yay!
