You can get lashes really cheaply on ebay, of course they're not as nice as the expensive ones but when you consider the really nice ones cost about $20 a pair, and I got all this for the same amount of money:
That's hard to pass up! When they're this cheap I don't worry about reusing them, I can just wear them once and throw them away, though even these cheap ones are good for a few wears if you're careful with your glue.
So, how do you get them on? I did a tutorial about this ages and ages ago on my youtube channel, here it is:
Here's some photos that will hopefully help illustrate the process, too. In the top picture I just have eyeshadow and winged eyeliner on, then I add the top lashes, and then, to go totally over the top for a real "SPOOKY DOLL" look, I added some lashes to the bottom as well - not recommended unless you're doing a costume look or some other wild look :)
The key to wearing these and making them comfortable is to trim them to the size of your eye, you want them a little short rather than a little long in length - if they poke you anywhere when you blink, they're too long and you need to lop a bit off each end.
Investing in a glue is always a good idea - I have a black glue which is really good, totally blends in with the rest of my makeup and is a lot more forgiving if I get generous with it.
False lashes add an unmistakable touch of glamour to any look, I recommend you give them a go if you haven't already!
If you're wondering about the lovely grey/silver eyeshadow I am wearing, it's from the new
Lancome Hypnose Drama Eyes 5 Color Palette - it's totally gorgeous and I'll be showing it to you in more detail soon.
