The eyes are the windows to the soul, and every window needs decent framework. Not everyone is blessed with long and luscious lashes though. Ah well, you know what they say: if you can’t make it, fake it!
False eyelashes that give you that Jessica Rabbit worthy sultry stare are the desire of every woman, but few of us can afford to cough up the cash (or the time) for exxy salon extensions and let’s face it, the DIY eyelash extension market can be a little scary.
That said, as Just Be’s resident intern and beauty guinea pig, I decided to put the latest at-home lashes to hit the faux lash market to the test this week. Revlon’s Beyond Natural Individual Lashes ($9.99), include 70 individual lash clusters in three varying lengths (long, medium and short) so these definitely seemed a safe option when it came to building up a look that was both natural and achievable. Here’s how I did it:
How to get long lashes:
- Using tweezers I carefully removed each pedindividual lash cluster from the packet and dip the ‘knot’ of each cluster into a tiny amount of Revlon Lash Glue – Precision Lash Adhesive ($9.99).
- I placed each cluster along the root line of my natural lashes, ensuring to use the shorter lashes on the inner corner of my eye and the longer lashes towards the outer corners for a more authentic look.
- To finish, I applied a coat of mascara over my new lashes and my natural lashes.
Not bad! For a budget buy you can do at home yourself, these were surprisingly easy to apply, and as my before (right eye) and afters (left eye) show – the results were – pardon the pun – worth batting an eyelid for!
