False Eyelashes Part 1

    False eyelashes can be quite tricky to apply if you have never tried before. There are also so many different types that it can be confusing to choose the right ones.

    False eyelashes have many positive benefits, especially for people with small eyes. Eyelashes help to open your eyes, especially after creating a smokey eye look and with a bit of practice, take only a few minutes to apply.

    This post will be in two parts - Part 1 will be explaining the different types of false lashes and their benefits, and Part 2 will tell you all about application of false eyelashes.

    Here is an explanation on the different types of eyelashes you can purchase, how they differ and where you can find them!

    Individual/Cluster Lashes

    Individual or Cluster Eyelashes are small 'pods' of false lashes, and as many or as little can be applied as you like. Great for a more natural look, however if you are someone who rubs their eyes etc, I recommend to steer clear. You may find them sticking out in the wrong direction in the middle of your date!

    Quarter or Half Lashes

    Quarter or Half line lashes, are placed on the outer edge of your eye, and are perfect for adding a little bit of glam without being over the top. I recommend these types of false eyelashes for daytime wear, or for those who don't usually wear much makeup or have previously not worn false eyelashes before.

    Full Lashes

    Full line false eyelashes are the most common and easy to find, and usually what comes to mind when thinking of false eyelashes. These vary in size, colour and type from natural looking to the intense. Full or Half line lashes are usually the easiest to learn to apply, as they are easier to control.

    Under Lashes
