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.

The truth behind cheapness of Coastal Scents. Fake MAC.

Since it's April Fool's day what can we found better to talk about but fools? :D
And what if we combine it with our favorite subject - beauty?

One of the reasons why i actually wanted to write about this is because since i do aloooot of research online i found some interesting theories about some famous brands. Well brand to be exact - Coastal Scents. Almost everyone interested in make-up knows this brand and owns their 88 palette. I do to. I bought it from their website directly a while ago. Everything is great. I like the quality, the palette is really well pigmented, it was cheap, i got amazingly kind costumer service (they answered tons of my e-mails very fast)
The question is - why i only had to pay 18 dollars for the whole pallette, when alot of people compare their shadows to MAC brand, which costs 14 dollars per unit. And here i got even 88 different colours. The thing is... everything from Coastal Scents are made in Hong Kong or somewhere near by. It's not being ma…

Best and Worst drugstore foundations. Maybelline vs. L'oreal.

I've been using drugstore foundations forever, cause i can't really afford high-end stuff. I'm a grad-student, and  i allready spend all my money on cosmetics. I live in Europe, so stuff like MAC or Lush is non-existant here. Well at least not in my country. (Let's make the "Aaaaaaw..." sound now all together). Let's not make it sound like the edge of the world though, we have kinda everything else here... most of the popular drugstore brands, most of the high end brands... Most of the popular clothing stores....except the Forever 21... (1...2....3... awwwww)
Anyway since i've used almost every drugstore foundation there is i'd liked to share my opinion of which i thought is best and which is.... well let's call it "not-so-much"....

So i'd like to give the name of Best Drugstore foundation to Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid.
It's cheaper than the foundation that i'd like to call "not-so-much", but it works wo…

How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Sorry so much for beeing m.i.a. for a while, i've been busy as hell, cause i was studying on my history pre finals... Do you know, that something really boring happened to someone really ugly in the middle ages?
Anyway, i aced it, and i can dedicate slightly more time to blogging :)

So i was at the hair salon earlier this week, to get them dyed and trimmed. I dye my hair way too  much. The color of it changes more than the shape of my eyebrows... I can't really remember my natural hair colour. It has been strawberry blond, bright red, aubergine, brown, mahagony..... I can go on for a while actually..... So i decided to make it nice and natural now, i came out chocollaty brown. It's so different from what i've had.

So i'm in my hairdressers chair, we're chatting and she says to me, that she noticed that i am a lot thinner than i were (thanks, but that's not a compliment for me) and that i have alot of new baby hair growing (yay). I never really noticed that. …
