All right dolls, it is that time of the week again, time for another Fast Tip Wednesday!

This week we wanted to focus on false eyelashes. Sometimes, when you want to go big for an event, false eyelashes are a way to amp up your vintage look! The only downfall is they can be really tricky to put on. We scoured the web to bring you two of our favorite videos to help you the next time you are attempting to put a set of falsies on.

We really liked this video because she really gives you the basic directions on how to put on falsies. I know when I was doing my research, I was surprised by some of the tips they give you! Believe it or not, I didn’t know you needed to cut the lashes!

We would like to add, when she says to wait until the glue is “tacky” it usually means give the glue 1-2 minutes to set. You want it to set on the lash and dry partially creating the “tackiness” that she talks about.

We added this video because we LOVE Andrea’s Choice on Youtube! We think she has great overall make-up tips. She did this video about vintage makeup, and while we love the look she created, the thing we loved the most was layering her falsies.

So again, false eyelashes are used to give you some extra drama, so for this you might want to buy a set of wider spaced lashes for the base layer, and then thicker lashes for the top. This will help to give you a very full eyelash look.

13970724The eyelashes we recommend are the Ardell lashes available at Target or most local drugstores. We love these because they are a great quality at an affordable price. We have worn ours up to three times and then thrown them out.

There are also the false eyelashes by MAC, which are extraordinary, but more expensive at $16 a set.

We hope you enjoyed our Fast Tip for the week. Let us know if you use this tip and how it works out for you!
