There are now millions of mascaras on the market. Some promise that they will give you the telescopic length, others lift & curl, some even a false eyelash effect. Unfortunately, mascaras often dry out the lashes, which can cause them to break off.
False eyelashes give a flash lash effect. You can opt for adhesive "falsies" or visit a lash studio where a lash stylist will permanently attach the eyelashes. Whichever way you go, false eyelashes are incredible and add a compelling look.
Here are the reasons why false eyelashes are awesome:
You can draw attention to your eyes with very little effort. Long eyelashes are a sign of youthful femininity and give the eyes that certain something. They look bigger and attract everyone's attention.
False eyelashes wake up your eyes. No matter how much overtime you've worked, you still look “made up” with false eyelashes. You can enhance the effect by using some white eyeliner or a lighter shade of eyeliner along the lower waterline. (Little make-up trick of the professionals)
If you have chosen good quality false eyelashes, the application is quite easy. The Beneva Black Eyelash Box Deluxe offers 3 different eyelash styles (Natural, Glam and Diva) and two deluxe liners that attach the eyelashes where they belong without any magnets or glue: close to the upper lash line. The eyelash box also contains an accessory set with an applicator, which makes attaching the silk eyelashes even easier.
Less is more
If you wear false eyelashes, you generally need a little less makeup than anything else. The eyelashes look elegant and feminine, a little blush and a delicate lip gloss are often enough to round off the make-up of the day.
False eyelashes that you can apply yourself at home are far cheaper and less time-consuming than regular visits to the lash studio. If you treat the eyelashes well, you can reuse them up to 25 times.
If you're looking for an easy way to feel glamorous, then false eyelashes are the thing. Depending on which style you choose, you can achieve different effects: full diva volume, playful designs with different lengths or cat eyes where the eyelashes are longer on the sides are all possible. The different designs change the entire shape of your eye and give you exactly the look you would like to have.
A set of false eyelashes is the best way to add extra drama and glamor to any makeup look. Since the welfare of the animals is important to us, we advise against "Mink Lashes" (eyelashes made from real mink hair). There are really great silk eyelashes on the market that are just as soft and comfortable to wear.
Here are a few simple tips to extend the life of your false eyelashes.
- Remove in the evening
While you sleep, your false eyelashes can easily become tangled, bent, or torn off when rolling around in bed. Always make sure to remove your false eyelashes at the end of the day and store them in the original packaging.
- Use the correct remover
Always use a make-up remover to gently remove the eyelash glue, please never just tear it off with your fingers! This may be faster, but it puts a strain on the natural eyelashes and can even tear them out.
Choose a nourishing remover to avoid damaging the lash line. Never use tweezers to remove the eyelashes; use cotton pads and your fingertips carefully to avoid squeezing or damaging the eyelash hair.
- Only buy high quality eyelashes
It may be tempting to buy a pair of eyelashes for 2 francs or euros, but cheap eyelashes wear out quickly. Instead, invest in a quality kit from a reputable brand like Velor Lashes or Flutter Lashes. Not only will you look more realistic, but you can be sure that your lashes will last through multiple uses.
- Avoid mascara
Beauty bloggers and YouTube gurus may advise you to coat your false lashes with mascara so that they supposedly blend in with your real lashes. However, this step isn't really necessary if you have a good quality pair of authentic-looking lashes. "Falsies" are already long enough and dark enough that they don't need mascara. Mascara will affect the lashes' longevity and make them more difficult to clean.
Tip: If you really want to apply mascara to your false eyelashes, please do not use waterproof ones. This dries out even more and is far more difficult to remove.
- Cleaning the eyelashes
It is important to clean the false eyelashes after each use. This will remove any buildup of liner, glue, or eye shadow that could clump false lashes. Soak the lashes gently in lukewarm water and clean them with eye makeup remover and a cotton swab. Then rinse the lashes thoroughly and comb them gently with an eyelash comb. Let them air dry, then store them back in their original packaging.
It may seem like a lot of work to take care of your false eyelashes as best you can, but it is well worth the effort to keep them looking like new.
