Even the most experienced makeup lover has obstacles to overcome.  For some it’s mastering the perfect cat eye, for some it’s a contoured cheekbone… for me, it’s false lashes…..

My First Time Applying False Lashes | An Epic Fail

I don’t know why, but my whole makeup wearing life I’ve just never been able to apply falsies.  It’s not just my skill.. it may be my face.  I’ve had professional makeup artists try to apply them to me and they usually end up a mess.

With my wedding quickly approaching (OMG only 2 more months… I’m panicking so I’ll try not to think about it too much… great now I’m freaking out… I’m going to my happy place… I’m at my makeup table… just breath… okay back to lashes), I decided this was the ultimate time to finally defeat my nemesis.

So did I finally master falsies?  Watch and find out….

    I’m useless at false eyelashes. Even if I manage to get them on there will be a rogue bit of glue that I HAVE to pick off and I end up pulling the eyelashes off!

    • I’ve discovered it’s all in the glue and the lashes… the products are the key 🙂

  • It took me SO much practice to master false lashes! The trick I found is that you have to trim them more than you think. The shorter they are the easier they are to apply. You can also get little wooden applicator sticks to help apply the glue if it doesn’t come with a brush.

  • It’s funny because applying false lashes is the one thing (makeup wise) that I actually do well. I love wearing them. My trick is to squeeze a little glue on a flat surface, then dip the lash in the glue so I only get a little on the lash.
