Lashes are everywhere!, from dramatic to something as simple as a few individuals, its a must have in my makeup routine when I go glam. They upgrade my makeup game, it’s as if they are the hair extensions for my eyelashes; as weird as that sounds its the best way to describe them. They add the unnecessary extra glam to complete the look. Ironically lashes don’t always have to be dramatic; sometimes I wear the thin and whispy ones to add a little bit more of femininety to my eyes. On the days I just want a more feline look I add the double individuals on the outer corners of my eyelashes. My favorite eyelash companies are Ardell Lashes and Red Cherry Lashes, they have a wide variety and my clients and I love them. I recently came across the faux mink lashes from Kiss Lash, I was never a big fan of kiss lashes. Tried a few out and never repurchases again, then I came across the faux mink collection at Walgreens and its as if it was love at first sight, dramatic I know but the only way I can describe it, I just knew these where going to be a hit. These are the only lashes I get for myself from the drugstore lately; go big or go home right?
A question you must be asking yourself is how many times can I use these lashes? Well as many as you like, I personally get 15 to 20 uses out of them (If I don’t lose them) How you ask? Simple, you need to take care of them after every use or every other use. The lash glue will build up and create a thicker, clumpier band and leave bacteria. I suggest taking a tweezer and gently peeling off the adhesive, once its off I take a Q-tip and damping it with isopropyl alcohol (not to drenched but damp) then just run it along the band. I don’t like to put mascara on the lashes because they are quite full, so I prep my eye lashes with a thick coat of mascara then proceed to apply the lashes. If you do apply mascara on your lashes, you can gently give these a 30-second wash with some body wash, they don’t loose their shape and you can always re-curl then if they do. My all-time favorite lash glue is House of Lashes Glue ; the reason why I like these, in particular, is that they don’t contain a chemical called formaldehyde which causes me to tear up.
They currently have six styles available with the Faux Collection.
They sell them on Amazon, Walgreens, and Bejour.
