Fakeness is so hard to apply December 30, 2010

Posted by Jess in Fashion & Accessories.

I HAVE BEEN DEFEATED BY FAKE EYELASHES. Here is an example of what fake eyelashes, when applied correctly, should look like:

And here is mine:

Oh dear.

I really like the fuller eyelash look, as I already have longer-than-average eyelashes. Mascara doesn’t really give me the fullness I want but i’m hoping I can find the perfect/appropriate fake eyelash brand to use. HALP.

I’ve only worn fakies once and that was for a friend’s wedding. The makeup artist applied them though – there’s no WAY I could do it.

Mascara-wise though – have you tried Chanel’s mascara? I tried it in the States and it made my lashes look super fake and thick!

It is definitely time for an upgrade on the mascara front. I’m still currently using Maybelline’s XXL Mascara with the double-ended wand style. I don’t use the white mascara, just the black.

I did find it hard to apply the eyelash in this instance & the photo I posted of the finished product is actually quite deceitful – the band is actually sitting very high above my eyelash line! I just like the idea of “unreal lashes” but will look into the mascara thing! Thanks for your comment :}

I know you posted this ages ago, but the fake lashes I got from $3 Japan on Queen Street work well! I use them with the glue they sell too. I generally smudge a little pencil eyeliner on my eyelid first, so if theres a bit of gap you can’t tell as badly. I usually apply them by dotting the rim of the fake eyelash with the glue, wait a few seconds for it to go a bit sticker, then shut my eye and press it on as low as I can, then open my eye and try wriggle it closer to my actual lash line. And then I go over the join of fake lash/eyelid with liquid eyeliner. Patience is the key! If i’m in a rush, it fails every time. I also have long but thin eyelashes. Hopefully you’ve found a solution by now anyway!
