D.I.Y Lashes...

Everyone is wearing them! From Kim K and Co, Beyonce and even the FOTUS (First Lady of The United States) Michelle Obama. What're they wearing?! LASHES?!?! Should you wear em? HELL YEAH! When lashes are done RIGHT, they can be AMAZINGLY flattering and just the oomph! you need to complete your day or night look. The key to good lashes is picking a style that does NOT look fake.

Below are five easy steps for you to follow so you can rock out GLAMOUROUS faux lashes...
  1.  Flatten your natural lashes by curling them in REVERSE. To get the REVERSE curl effect, turn the padded side of the eyelash curler UP.
  2. Trim false lashes to fit the shape of your eye. DO NOT place lash strip near the inner corner of your eye. That are of the eye is full of mucous membranes that are moist and will prevent the lash adhesive from drying.
  3. FLEX or BEND the lash strip to make them easier to manipulate. Take tweezers or any clean object with a fine tip and dip into lash adhesive and line the eyelash strip. Let the adhesive dry for 10 to 15 seconds so it's kinda 'tacky'.
  4. Looking down at the mirror with eye half open, position the strip close to your lashline.
  5. With the flat end of the tweezers gently tap the strip against your lashline from one end to the other.
  6. POW! You're FABULOUS lashes are C-O-M-P-L-E-T-E!
If you try these steps, take a pic and let me see your work! I might post you on the blog!
