The heavy lash and shiny eyes look has been popular for decades. In the 1950s, pinup girls and sex kittens used them to improve their looks. In the 60s and 70s, the bigger your lashes, the better. Unfortunately, many of these looks came out looking artificial. Today, over-the-counter lashes look much more natural and less eye-catching. Many women use them as an accessory to enhance their eyes. The quality of the lashes has been improved to make it easier to get a more natural look. Applying false eyelashes has also become much easier, and a little practice can get this attractive look, too.

Eyelashes come in many different styles now, you can get an individual eyelash box for strategic eyelash placement. Simply use this type to fill in scattered areas of the lash line, or use at the end of the lashes for more fullness. The complete games offer an easier and more glamorous application. You can also create your own unique look by cropping them at an angle, or even sectioning entire outfits on your own, and customizing your new tabs.

Before applying your false eyelashes, wash off your makeup, especially old mascara. Prepare your natural eyelashes with an eyelash curler. It is also best to align your eyes before applying lashes. This is good for two reasons, it's easier to mix the roots of the lashes and don't worry about smearing your makeup afterwards.

I suggest having your own eyelash kit on hand. Get a high-quality eyelash adhesive, various sets of false eyelashes, small scissors, tweezers, toothpicks, Q-tips, paper towels, and an eyelash curler. I prefer the dark glue for eyelashes because it blends more easily.

To get started, put all of your supplies in and separate your individual lashes. Remember to apply the lashes to the outer corner of the eye first, working inward. Lift up an individual lash with your tweezers, tap the lash root with glue, wait a few seconds and apply it to your lash line. If you're applying a full set, run a thin strip of glue through the lash line with a toothpick, wait a few seconds for the glue to become tacky, and apply just above your natural lashes. Use Q-tips to press them in place as it is less complicated than using your fingers. Once you apply them, allow a few more seconds for the glue to dry completely.

You can create many different looks from here. Check your eyes again with more eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara. Create the look you want with false lashes and don't be afraid to experiment. It takes a little practice, but once you learn how to apply lashes the way you want them to look, you can get a lot of extra glam flair.
