Use false eyelashes or eyelash extensions for beautiful eyes. Here’s info on best fake lashes, eyelash adhesive glue, and extensions. See doctor before using Latisse.
There are some great ways for women to get thicker longer lashes by going beyond mascara and cheating to the max. Find out about some of the best false eyelashes, eyelash extensions, and Latisse.
What will give a girl deep, seductive, mysterious eyes?
Fake lashes are an easy, cool way for younger women to look sexier and for Boomer Chicks to look younger, but there are so many types of false eyelashes, its difficult to choose.
The price range goes from £5, for a drugstore set, to Madonnas hand-made mink-and-diamond eyelashes, which cost her £10,000. These days, girls can get knock-off Dazzling Black Diamante False Eyelashes by Shu Uemura, for £25.
Best Eyelash Glue
No matter which fake eyelashes are used, gals should get the best glue, Shu Uemura Eyelash Adhesive. Anyone who has ever spent 45 minutes, trying to get her eyelashes on, will confirm that buying the best lash glue is a worthwhile investment.
Shu Uemura Eyelash Adhesive gets tacky right away, so a woman does not have to apply the glue to the strip, and wave it around, until it is the right consistency. The Shu Uemura glue also comes in black, so if any of the glue shows, it will look like eyeliner, as opposed to normal white adhesive, which looks like Elmers Glue.
Shu Uemura adhesive is good for contact lens wearers.
Many girls use Mac false eyelashes because Mac has lots of different styles and lengths, and they are very reasonably priced.
A woman can go into a Mac Cosmetics Store, buy the false eyelashes, and the salesgirl will cut the lashes for the correct fit, then apply the lashes for no extra charge. (During the holidays, girls should go in early because every other female in the city will have the same idea.) Sephora, also, will cut and apply eyelashes.
Eyelashes that are too big are impossible to put on.
Shu Uemura Eyelashes
Shu Uemura has some beautiful lashes, including outrageous styles made with:
They also have individual lashes, which look amazing, but take forever to apply. Girls should have someone else do the application.
Cheap Fake Lashes
Drugstore brand fake eyelashes, like Ardell or Andrea Modlash, will get the job done. They are not the most natural looking, but if a woman is going somewhere dark, these will work. Using Shu Uemura glue makes a big difference and finding someone to cut the lashes will help.
Many women in London get eyelash extensions. If a gal looks different one day and no one can figure out why, it might be that she has eyelash extensions.
Eyelashes extensions are individual lashes made from lightweight synthetic fiber. They are applied, one at a time, with surgical glue by a skilled technician. (Find a beauty therapist with a good reputation.) The cons of extensions:
Long term commitment (usually)
Lash extensions are very expensive because they require a maintenance procedure (touchup), called a fill, which is similar, in requirements, to having acrylic nails filled. Lashes grow out just like fingernails. Yet, women who must look great all the time, such as movie stars, celebrities, and fashion specialists, feel these lashes are worth it.
One of the best places, in London, is Designer Lashes. Here, the first application of lashes is about £250, and takes 2 hours. Eyelash fills are around £80. (There are less expensive, and more expensive, options.) If women follow lash-care instructions, the extensions are said to last for up to 8 weeks, however, many women seem to need fills every 4 weeks (or more often). At this salon I suggest you make an appointment for Russian lashes – they are amazing!
There is a special type of mascara to use with synthetic lashes, but most women dont need it. Eyelash extensions can be applied for a big event, such as a wedding, and then never reapplied. Not all women are candidates for extensions.
Originally, Latisse was a glaucoma medication, but someone noticed that one of its side effects was extremely long-growing lashes. While the FDA recently approved Latisse as a beauty aid, some doctors wonder why it was approved for cosmetic usage, and docs definitely recommend getting a complete eye exam before using it. This drug can make light eyes turn brown. Latisse should not be used by any woman without the full knowledge of her opthamologist.
As always, check with a physician if there is any question about these products or if one has an allergic reaction to a specific glue or other product.
In general, good false eyelashes like Mac or Shu Uemura, and Shu Uemura adhesive, are easy-to-master products. Women with big bucks, often, like the convenience of lash extensions. Anyone considering Latisse should discuss the pros and cons with an opthamologist.
