In the last few years, celebrity culture around the world has seen the popularity of false lashes skyrocket. There has been a huge increase in the eye makeup market in general, with many alternatives to false lashes, such as volume enhancing mascara, becoming popular, too.

For many, false eyelashes are where it’s at when it comes to having a unique sense of personal style. One only has to visit a local shopping centre to see the number of stalls offering to apply false lashes to understand the surge in popularity.


Effects of False Lashes

Why are false lashes proving so popular among women of all ages?

· Add instant glamour to eyes

· Effect of widening small eyes


· Rejuvenate tired eyes, making them look younger and refreshed




There are several great brands that offer high quality lashes in various styles. We aren’t going to sit here and tell you all about the best brand for you; only you will know that.

Instead, check out our guide for applying lashes correctly.


False Lash Application

First of all, check the lash against your natural eyelash length. Why do this? Well, you do want to extend your natural lash length, however if the false lashes are too long then it isn’t going to work. Trim the lashes if you need to.

Now apply the adhesive to the false lashes – either in a continuous line or sporadically along the base. Remember you need to remove these later so do not go crazy and use too much! Some brands offer ready-glued lashes so you do not have to do this bit yourself. Ensure you wait 20 or so seconds for the adhesive to become sticky before applying the lash.

Use a set of tweezers to hold the lash, and push into place, from the inside of your eye and working your way to the outside. Remember to “pinch and push” with the tweezers all the way across both eyes, this technique will leave your lashes looking sexy and sultry.


Additional Help

If you want to enhance your look further then you can add a subtly coloured mascara, although this is sometimes best avoided as you should only apply this to your natural lashes. Instead, use eyeliner and eye shadow for the best effect and to avoid going anywhere near your false lashes!

Often the effect of false lashes is so great that you never need anything else anyway.

Removal

To remove false lashes, I would recommend not just pulling them off, as many do. Instead, use warm water and cotton wool to gently brush across your eyelashes, which should allow them to be removed gently and without any unnecessary pain.

Best beauty remedies form the nature - COFEE GROUNDS

Awhile ago i've read somewhere a big article about how to use leftover coffee grounds to figth cellulite and ever since then it was stuck in my head. You know, how coffe grounds are useful only for fortune tellers and for war with the orange peel skin on tushy. Boy was i wrong! It is amazing how much the mother nature can offer us - beauty product junkies. To get an amazing beauty remedy for anything you can possibly think of, you don't need to do much or pay more than a.. dollar/euro (this is how i imagine a cup of coffee costs.... lol) So i put together a list of ways of how to use almighty coffee grounds and tried them all, so let's see the results!

This is how my obssesion with coffee grounds started. I was visiting my grandmother for a few days and she noticed how i wash my hair almost OR every single day. I had to sit down with her and listen to a looooong moral about how it's unhealthy for the hair and yada yada yada... So -  ok -  i said, - they get oily really …

Off topic - relationships! I am sure i am not the only one!?

I have huge fear - i am affraid to appear too clingy. I am not affraid to show my affection to someone, but i don't ever want to be the one, who takes the first step. The first step not necceserily means going to a guy i like and expressing this to him, but i hate being the one, who texts or e-mails first. God forbid be the one who asks a GUY out. I could know, that this particular guy REALLY likes me, and i won't be turned down, i still hate taking the first step. Do you have the same feeling? Like, i want to talk to someone, but i have this ugly feeling in my stomach, that maybe he is busy and i'll be bothering him and he won't, say, text back and then i feel that i lost my... quality? my secrecy.. i don't even know how to put it, but i am sure you all understand it. This especialy is a big problem in the beggining of love affairs. How do i let a guy know that i like him? (This is rethorical question)

So let's call my complex A Princess complex, because i feel…
