The Misadventures of False Eyelashes

 I have been wanting to try false eyelashes for a long time. I purchased them awhile ago but I just did not put them on. I have not wore them since my "trash the dress" photo shoot after my wedding. I watched several YouTube videos to see how it was done. After about 5 videos.....I settled on this one by makeupDOLL that I thought was easy and decided to give it a try.

The right eye was easy and I did not seem to have any issues. The left eye was another story. I put it on and took it off and did it again. I glued the lash upside down. I glued to close to the top of my lid. I did not allow the glue to get tacky enough, so the lash slid down a little bit. It was a mess. After about an half an hour I think I got the lash in position.

This is the final look.
 I like how it turned out. To bad it did not last long since I took the little one swimming and one of my lashes ended up on sideways on my lid and then they both ended up on the seat car on the way home so I could see.

I think that I will try them again since I liked the look. I might have to review a few more YouTube videos since practice makes perfect or I might just leave it to the professionals.
