4 Easy steps to great natural lashes:
If you are looking for a cost effective way to have great lashes here is a simple and small tip that will have dramatic results without looking like a ‘fa’afafine’. By placing lashes on the outer corners of your lash line, you can have natural but great looking lashes.
From any good department store, you can purchase a packet of lashes that are gathered in clumps of three or four individual lashes.
4 Easy steps:
Start by removing make up and oil from your eyelid and face (then you will avoid getting your glue wet when you wash your make up off. Squeeze a small amount of the glue onto a small piece of paper. (If the glue dries white like some types of latex glue, I mix the glue with black eye shadow to make sure that it dries black to blend with your lashes).
Using tweezers take one of the clumps at the tips of lashes and dip the root in the glue, make sure that there is enough glue for the clump to connect it to the outer corners of the lash line.
Repeat this again getting closer and closer to the centre of the lash line (you may even want to slightly trim the last clump to blend them to the length of your natural lashes).
Brush the lashes with a clean mascara brush/lash brush just at the tips, to make sure that all the lashes are facing the right way (do this daily to ensure that your lashes last longer).
How do you know what kind of glue to buy?
I recommend buying glue bottles with a screw top rather than a pull off lid. This way your glue does not end up drying up before you use it for the second time. I recommend using ‘Duo’ black glue that will dry dark or clear that is more natural looking.
