So tell me about false eyelashes....how to put eye make up
I will be near a body care and a boots tomorrow. This is for tomorrow night. I am nearly 40 so i dont want no Jordan looking fan on my lids. I have an oval shaped face, probably having hair up do (booked in for that). My face is quite 'strong' not like dainty, bit like Nigella.
On this info are there any particular ones you'd recommend.
Hi smile, you could try the 'half' ones that go from the middle to the outer corners, as these tend to be easier to put on. I used to use these when I was first wearing them, soon you'll be able to put them on in your sleep!
Oh, god yeah sorry i forgot the best tip, what Pantone said wait until the glue is tacky. I also apply them with tweezer, so much easier than fingers!
after you've stuck them down, and you think their in the right place squeeze your tweezers together, and press gently onto the band of the lash on the inner, middle and outer corners. Then i like to gently pull at the inner and outer corners to see if they are stuck properly. I do this in a magnifying mirror.
Aswell, get lashes with a clear band like these as they blend in better with the rest of your eye make up.
All of that might be a bit late, but for future, ect. & I hope you have a good evening
