3 Hot Looks You Can Create Using False Eyelashes

December 3, 2012

If you’ve ever found yourself envying the eye looks you’ve seen on hot celebrities like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga or the hottest fashion models gracing the runways these days, then you’ll naturally want to know their well-kept secret. They all wear false eyelashes!

You too can use false eyelashes to recreate some of today’s hottest looks. All it takes is a little know-how, creativity, and thought in regards to how you can go about it. The following three options are some of the hottest looks around today and all can be created with inexpensive false eyelashes available from today’s top cosmetic accessory retailers.

 

1. Sultry Vintage

Vintage is hot, hot, hot these days thanks to celebrities like Dita Von Teese and Evan Rachel Wood. The good news is you don’t have to simply look at Dita and envy her model-perfect eye looks. You can recreate them with today’s options in false eyelashes. Choose full-fringe falsies in a color that compliments the natural shade of your lashes and eyebrows.

Apply carefully with a little glue. Then combine with subtle eye shadow in ivory, beige, or eggshell. Blend your natural lash line with the line of the falsies using liquid eyeliner. Use several coats of good mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false ones and combine with ruby red lipstick for the perfect finishing touch.

 

2. Flirtatiously Natural

Although false eyelashes and the natural look aren’t necessarily the first things to blend in most people’s imaginations, we assure you that false eyelashes are your best friend when it comes to creating a lash look that’s positively to-die-for. The trick is to opt for individual or cluster style false eyelashes, as opposed to traditional strip style options. Apply the lashes primarily to the outsides of your upper lid, as your outer lashes are the ones that are naturally much longer.

If necessary, trim individual eyelashes to better match the lengths of your real lashes. Apply a natural-looking eyeliner to your upper lid to help fill in any gaps between lashes. Use a couple of coats of mascara to help blend your natural lashes in with your false ones. That’s it! In fact, this look is so effective as a gorgeous casual or weekend look that it works even without foundation, shadow, or any other kind of make-up. Give it a try sometime!

 

3. Decadently Over-the-Top

While it’s true that false eyelashes are more fabulously flexible than you ever thought possible before, they’re still terrific for one thing – going showy and over-the-top in a wonderful way for special nights out on the town. Try applying strip lashes in ultra-lush styles or fun fashion colors like blue or green. Pair with wild, exotic shadow in lush, juicy colors that match your outfit for the evening. Help your natural lashes blend in with mascara in an appropriate color and hit the clubs! You’ll be the talk of the party.

False eyelashes are more flexible than you think. Start experimenting with the possibilities for yourself today!
