I have short eyelashes, and I love the idea of false eyelashes. I have worn false eyelashes numerous times but they are always done by a professional makeup artist, except for a couple of trials on my own which were awesome. I loved the look.
From my experience, I think having the right color is key to look natural. The color of your hair should be a good determinant of the color to get. I have jet black hair, so I really have no difficulty with selection. Application of the eyelashes is not as hard as you think. Just ensure, you are starting with clean lashes and apply them along your natural lash line. The glue anyway takes about 30 seconds to dry, so you have plenty of time to maneuver. It’s key that you should stick to oil free cosmetics as oil can loosen the adhesive. Once they’re on, that’s it, leave the lashes alone!
