Lashing Out Glamourously with Make Up For Ever

My first thought of, “wow, maybe I can do this,” popped into my head was a few years back when I was standing in line at Burbank’s Cinema Secrets. The girl in front of me had about 10 sets of false eyelashes in her hands. I asked her if she was having an eyelash party or something (haha) and she told me she wears false eyelashes everyday. Can you imagine applying them everyday? She was obviously an expert because I just have so many problems when it comes to these! Don’t get me wrong, I know the steps to put them on and I only try to put them on for special occasions. I know that you’re supposed to let the glue start to get tacky on the strip before you lay them on your lid. I know to use tweezers to move them into place on your lid. I’ve even tried using that little stand that curves the lash band and then you pick it up with oversized wide tweezer thingy. I’ve tried it more than a few times but it is just not as easy as it looks no matter how you try and put them on. I end up just getting frustrated and toss them to the side. I mean, don’t you look at these new Faux Lashes ($14 @ from MAKE UP FOR EVER and want to try them all? Choose from 53 subtle or dramatic styles from their Lashbar. I figure the only secret in putting them on is practice, practice, practice! Can you suggest any tips?





The only tip I know of it trim them to make them fit and to wait for the glue to become tacky. And I find if you don't try and go all across the lid and just focus on the middle half to the end, that is a little easier. HTH!


I found using tweezers is easiest to get them super close to the lash line. THIS take practice but it's worth it.

It definitely does take practice... I'm no pro myself, in fact I have a lot of trouble, lol. A lot of the time it's easier to do without, but that dramatic look, if you get it right, is certainly worth it!


I wish I had someone at my disposal to apply them for me! Ok, maybe I should stop typing this and give the lashes another try. Practice, ugh!

Is that black one on the bottom made from FEATHERS? I don't know if I could go out in public with feather eyelashes.

I am loving the purple and blue, though.


Hi Charlotte,
The feather ones definitely make a statement! They would be great for either a total glam night out or Halloween.
