When it comes to makeup today, people are more into it and have individualized it such that we have developed our own makeup routines. These routines can range from a full blown makeup transformation to a simple no-makeup makeup look. Whatever the case is, false lashes make an amazing difference. Yes, even though you’ve been blessed with naturally thick lashes, falsies can take your look from 0 to 100.
False lashes have flooded the market; you will find them in beauty stores, on Instagram, pharmacies and even on the streets. They give your natural lashes an extra boost in terms of thickness/volume, length and definition of your lash line. Depending on the type of false eyelashes that you have, you can rock a subtle soft look or you can turn up the heat and bat your eyelashes giving a maximum intensity dramatic look. Once you have on your falsies, apply mascara on your actual lashes and you’re good to go.
As you enjoy the effect false eyelashes have, another fantastic thing about them other than enhancing your beauty is that you can wear them more than once. Isn’t that great? You don’t have to constantly spend money to get a new pair, especially if you’re an addict (that gets really expensive), when you can wear a pair 20-30 times. It definitely does boil down to the type and brand of lashes that you have. However with great care and knowledge on how to clean them, you can reuse your false eyelashes and they’ll look as fresh and new as they did when you first bought them.
