False eyelashes are one of the big fashion trends this season. These fabulous beauty accessories are getting a huge amount of exposure on television at the moment from stars doubling up on handmade mink fur lashes on X-Factor to glamorous eye-catching lashes on Strictly Come Dancing.
There are 2 main types of false handmade mink fur lashes that are available to buy both on the high street and online. These are strip false eyelashes and individual false eyelashes. Strip false lashes are generally more popular than individual ones, as they are quicker to apply. Individual lashes have to be glued to each eyelash you want to lengthen. They do however last a lot longer than strip lashes.
False eyelashes are worn by teenagers and women of all ages (and in some cases men too!) The style of lash depends on both the person and the occasion. Some lashes are far too extreme for daytime wear and are often saved for parties or special occasions.
Why wear eieth false eyelashes? Not all women are blessed with luscious long lashes and look to other ways of lengthening their own. They can draw more attention to your eyes. False lashes can make your own lashes look fuller, but this depends on the thickness of the falsies. Other people who wear false handmade mink fur lashes do so to make a statement…and boy are some eyelashes eye-catching! Some are super long and thick, while others are luminous in colour.
If you have never tried these beauty accessories before, it is advisable to start with ones that are shorter in length, as they can take some getting useful. Girls With Attitude have a range called Shorties that are designed for everyday wear and are more natural looking than other handmade mink fur lashes on the market. These lashes are designed for an instant eye lift.
False eyelashes are applied with special lash adhesive, which usually comes in the box with them. This can however be purchased separately. Simply compare the width of the lash band with your own lashes and snip off any excess. Using tweezers hold the eyelash and apply a small amount of handmade mink fur lashes glue along the band. It is really important to ensure that the glue becomes tacky before applying them. This usually takes around 30 seconds. Place the lash as near to your own lash line as possible and press down from the inner to outer corner of your eyes. Hold until they set.
With Christmas on the way, false handmade mink fur lashes are great stocking fillers. Not only do they fit in a stocking, they are also affordable.
