Alternative Options for Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are one of the biggest trends in makeup right now. They have been around for kind of a long time, but their popularity has really skyrocketed in the past few years. Lash extensions can look really beautiful, but they don’t always. There are many bad eyelashes out there. They can also be quite expensive and time consuming to keep up. That’s why I think it is so important to know what some of your other options are before committing to eyelash extensions!

How to Apply False Eyelashes: Guest Post from Simply Sadie Jane

What up guys, I’m Sadie from Simply Sadie Jane!
 I am SO excited to be apart of Kenzie’s MONTH OF MAKEUP!
Kenz and I have been friends for what feels like forever and I am so proud of this girl for all the amazing makeup goodness!
These posts have been so informative and helpful, I just had to get in on it!
…so I asked Kenzie if I could jump on board and share my EVERYDAY EYELASH TUTORIAL with all of you!!
I know what you’re thinking…seriously fake eyelashes for the everyday look!?
YES…it’s true!!
Fake eyelashes aren’t just for Snooki and the Kardashian’s anymore!!!
Now…I’m not talking about the extreme sky-high fake eyelashes…just the PERFECT lash to take your everyday look up a notch!
The lash to give you the thickness and volume that all the mascara commercials promise but the result is NEVER what you were hoping for!
For a while now I’ve been using lashes with a lot of my looks…
NO…not on the days when I run to the store or I’m cleaning house and such…but on the days when I know I am going to go somewhere other than the grocery store or if I know I will be going out that night…
here are some examples!!
 Fake eyelashes can be a sticky hot mess!
SERIOUSLY…they can be intimating, annoying and sometimes turn out WAY TOO fake to even bother with them…
WELL NOT ANYMORE!!
Today I am going to teach all you Girl Loves Glam readers how to properly apply the perfect, simple fake eyelash!!
{THIS IS PURELY MY OWN OPINION!!
FOR REALS…I wish I was getting paid or getting free eyelashes for this post…but I’m not!}

FOR MY EVERYDAY EYELASH LOOK I USE…
1. REVLON: lash adhesive {I use the DARK on dates and nights out…and the CLEAR for my everyday look}
2. Tweezers
3. REVLON Beyond Natural Synthetic Lashes, 4 Sets of Lashes {the DEFINING kind} 
*About 10 dollars a pack…REMEMBER you can reuse them! Just pull the access glue off the lash carefully before using it again!
 Make sure to start with a CLEAN EYE!!
My eyelashes stay on great ALL DAY LONG and sometimes I will sleep in them and use them for 2 days EVEN!!…WATCH OUT!
Usually eyelashes are the FIRST thing I do after I moisturize!
STEP 1: Start at the inner part of your eye {right above where your tear duct is…} and place a thin line of lash adhesive directly on top of your lash.
STEP 2: Place a thin line of lash adhesive on the end of your fake lash
STEP 3: Grab the outside end {the longer lash end} of your lash with the end of your tweezers
STEP 4: FIRST place the OUTSIDE corner of your fake lash onto the top of your lash {make sure to wedge the lash onto the top of your eyelid as well} Hold in place for a few seconds
STEP 5: Grab the other side of your fake lash with your tweezers…
STEP 6: Place the inside corner of your fake lash right on top of your natural lashes…remember to push the lash onto the skin and hold it there for a few seconds
STEP 7: Push the middle of your fake lash onto the top of your natural lash like you did with the ends.
STEP 8: To make the fake lash ‘blend’ with the natural lash and make it look more ‘natural’…take your tweezers and wedge both lashes between the tweezers…then squeeze them closed so they kinda ‘adhere’ to each other.
STEP 9: Do a bit of a touch up with your lash adhesive on each corner
STEP 10: Use a cotton swab to place a bit of concealer on the lip of your eye, right above your eyelash {make sure you use the concealer to hide that access glue that might shine through your eye shadow}
STEP 11: blend concealer into your crease and up the arch of your eye
STEP 12: Use a liquid liner and put a thin line over the top of the bottom of your lashes {this will hide the ‘root’ of the lash}
STEP 13: ALWAYS USE MASCARA! Don’t you dare put your fake lashes on and think that your other little natural lashes will just disappear underneath them…THEY WON’T! Mascara blends them together!! SO USE IT!
 AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!!

PERFECT LASHES for EVERYDAY WEAR!!!

to compliment your ginormous forehead…

oh wait…that’s just me!

Make sure you try them out for your next hot date night.
