Tutorial: Applying False Eyelashes 101


 *my eyelash drawer is out of control!!!*


I've been dying to make a video tutorial on how to apply false eyelashes. I have to say this must be the #1 requested video that everyone asks for. Applying falsies does take a lot of practice and patience but with a steady hand and the right kind of adhesive you will be a PRO in no time. Trust me, it's not easy, but once you get it down it's a piece of cake.

Applying false eyelashes really changes the style of your makeup, you can go from a natural beauty to diva glam just by selecting the perfect pair to compliment your makeup.  There's so many different styles out there that your possibilities are endless.

Falsies can be bought anywhere now a days find them at Target, any drugstore, beauty department store (Ulta and Sephora) and many cosmetic brands do carry their own line (MAC and Makeup Forever).  I buy my lashes online, I find that it's cheaper than the stores.  I do need a lot of them when I do makeup on location for brides so it's always great to find quality eyelashes are reasonably priced.  Two online sites that I recommend are:

This site is great to find lashes that you would normally find at drugstores or beauty supply stores.  Brands they carry are Ardell, Red Cherry, Revlon,  Elise and Japonesque.  The more you buy of 1 style the more you save which is great if you need more than 1 pair.  You can find an assortment of styles from natural to theatrical styles and even individuals.  This is your one stop shop because they also have Duo Eyelash Adhesive.  I usually order the Red Cherry ($1.99) and Ardell Lashes (varies from $2.00 and +) for myself and my clients. This is my favorite site to shop for all sorts of different eyelashes.  With your order I always get an extra pair of free eyelashes, plus you get your package within a couple of days!

You can read all about these lashes from my previous post. http://www.villabeautifful.com/2011/11/my-favorite-false-eye-lashes.html The blog post has pictures of all the lashes that I have purchased from Model21. All my brides love the 63, it is the perfect lash for a natural look.  I like to use these when I am doing a large bridal party or when I am creating my own falsies by layering different lashes together.  Pack of 10 lashes for under $10 but these lashes are synthetic.

The two styles that I have featured in the video are from Red Cherry which I purchased from Madammadeline.com.  What I like about this brand is that their false eyelashes are real hair and not synthetic.  The eyelashes are softer and not so plastic looking. 
These are the two styles, I did edit the pictures a little bit so you can see the eyelashes better.
