I just saw Desi Perkin’s video (featuring her chicken claws) and thought it was such a neat idea to customize a pair of false lashes and make it your own. So I decided to give it a shot and share my results with y’all! I have also included tips and tricks so that if y’all decide to try it out too, then this would be a helpful resource.
What you need:
- 1 pair of false lashes
- 1 pack of lash individuals
- Lash scissors
- Lash glue
Can y’all see the difference? I think the finished product looks fuller and slightly wispier. I accidentally glued two lash bits to far down and it ended up sticking out on the right lash, but hey, it’s only my first time and I think it was a total success!
Here are some tips and tricks for those who want to try it out:
- You could use a 2nd pair of false lashes instead of going out to buy a set of individual lashes. I usually cut my false lashes to adjust them to the size of my eye. I keep the bits of lashes that I cut off and I actually used that.
- Using lash glue that changes color when it dries is very handy. It’s a good indicator of when the glue has become tacky and will be way easier when you are trying to glue down the lashes. If the lash glue isn’t tacky enough, it might not stick.
- Make sure you don’t get lash glue on your tweezers. The lashes will stick to them and won’t glue down when you expect it to.
- You could use a makeup wipe to help remove the glue from the tweezers, but I don’t think wipes are that cheap and so I just used a damp paper towel.
- I was worried that when I took off my lashes with makeup remover, it would remove the lashes that I added onto it. If you use a Q-tip and gently run that along the lash line, then don’t worry.
Let me know if you’ve tried this and if you have any tips! Talk to y’all next time!
