False lashes are a hot topic. A regular daily occurrence for some, a special occasion for many and the stuff of myth and legend for others. Not since the sixties have we really seen such a resurgence of falsies for the masses and there are now millions of options from the super luxe to the super budget. A regular pair of tweezers work well for application (I prefer Tweezerman for a good grip) however you now also have a range of false lash applicators if you really can’t get the hang of it, Ardell Pro Lash Applicator holds strip lashes in their natural shape to easily drop onto the lash line as does Shu Uemura’s curved tip applicator which does look a bit more special on your bathroom shelf. Duo is an industry favourite for eyelash glue and comes in both the regular latex version as well as latex free for those with allergies. For a natural looking lash the best way forward is individuals, I love Liz Martins Select Pack Lashes as you get a variety of sizes within the pack for natural graduation with a fluttery finish, Eyelure Ultra Natural Combo & MAC also do a great range of individuals with multiple sizes. Apply with tweezers and a steady hand or rope in a friend for easy application. If your patience can’t handle it though, try strip lashes. For a natural flutter try Ardell Natural Lashes or Demi Wispies, also MAC’s Strip Lashes as there is a variety of choice in both black and brown however if you want to up the ante for nighttime try the Black Velvet Feather Eyelashes from Shu Uemura for full on volume. And now we hit crazy lash territory just in time for Halloween. Shu Uemura do a large selection of lashes which include colour, glitter, feathers and just about everything or for something really spooky try Illamasqua Bat Lashes or even Paperself Lashes Small Spiders. Makeup Forever also have lashes worthy of a small stage production. If all this still isn’t enough lash for you don’t worry there is still Eyelash Jewellery. Tiny little beads, fish, cupcakes, flowers and anything really are woven onto fine wire and attached to false lashes, it’s like a little workout for your eyelids every time.
