I’m probably the last “beauty blogger” on the planet to finally try applying/wearing falsies for the first time. I made a conscious choice to skip that bandwagon when I wore false lashes for prom and felt like an entire hand of fingers was poking my eyes all night. Fast forward to a few years of blogging, invisible lashes in photoshoots, and desperately trying to recover a mombie face…and you have me mad dashing for the beauty aisle at Target to grab every different kind of falsies and concealer that I can find. (Shop some of my favorites below.)
I ended up getting the best lash advice at a blogger event at the new NYX Professional Makeup store in Houston (located in the Galleria Mall). A fellow blogger babe helped me pick out the “Risque” falsies from NYX, explaining that the way the lashes cross each other helps to make them look more natural and hide any mistakes from application. (Can we say thaaaaaaaank YOU!)
Needless to say, the application process took some patience. While I didn’t find it painstakingly difficult to get the lashes on my lashline and allow them to dry well, I definitely had to take my time and put in a little more care with my makeup routine when using falsies. It didn’t take me much longer to get ready, but I definitely couldn’t apply falsies if I were in a hurry. (I hear practice makes perfect, though, if that’s what you’re aiming for!)
Even if it were to take more time, the payoff of the effect would have been worth it. I’ve already posted the outfit from this shoot, which immediately garnered a handful of comments about my lashes in these photos! My lashes were visible from miiiiiiiles away and they definitely made these photos 10x better! My mombie face was thankful that I took the plunge and tried falsies.
Are you a falsie fanatic?! Every day? Only on special occasions? Never?!
