It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
After loosing my lashes on my right eye. . . then having them come back only to have the left fall out. . . I have decided to try false lashes. I am having a terrible time getting them to look right. Can anyone suggest a brand they like? Any tips to applying them? I feel like my eye that has some lashes still looks ok, but the one with out looks really bad. I'm thinking it's because there is nothing for the false lashes to sit against? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
A lot of people recommend Ardell 110. I wore those for a while and decided if I was going to wear lashes, I might as well WEAR lashes. So I use Fauxlash Chloe which are really long and fancy (but I love them). There are a lot of posts on here about applying lashes. The truth is that it takes a while to learn to put them on. The first day I wore them it took me 45 minutes to put them on and they started peeling off 10 minutes later. Now, I can get both eyelashes glued in 5 minutes and they last throughout the day. My advice, keep practicing and try not to get too frustrated.
Go to the drugstore and buy an assortment until you find the ones that you like. You can then find them online when you buy them in bulk. It takes practice to get use to them.
I wear Ardell # 108-but in brown because I have fair skin. There is an Ardel video on their web site that shows lashes being applied. I think when you have no eyelashes at all, you need to also learn to apply a line of eyeliner. Many women apply a thin dark line, then apply the eyelashes-then use a lighter pencil or powder for another line-but make it smudged, to soften the look. Eyeliner helps make the lashes seem to be real.
as others have said, it takes a lot of patience - applying them can be frustrating, but with practice comes technique and speed - I have been wearing them for about 14 years now, and I STILL have my days when they frustrate me or I accidentally get glue in my eye, everyone has their ways of what works for them. I too, use Ardell lashes - just try different ones until you find what works for you. Good Luck!
just keep practicing. the ardell brand is really good, any style. but i'd recommend that you muff up your pair you already bought first. just apply. then walk around your house for an hour, do some laundry. clean up a little. then take them off. (it's best to use makeup remover for the glue; i actually use makeup remover wipes.) and reapply. simple. and it's practicing. you can clean the eyelashes as well, with makeup remover, so you can keep using the eyelashes more than a week or so.
personally, i put on eyeliner first. apply the lashes. then put on eyeshadow and more liner as well.
Great instructions. These should be archived. And good advice to carry a repair kit in your purse-I keep extra (soft) eyeliner pencil-a small high powered mirror, a tube of glue and an old soft rubber tipped make up thing for the glue -but toothpicks would do-I just seem to lose them. My lashes seem to loosen at the corners in wind.
