~Real Glamour~ DIY Lash Extensions .....

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Hey Everyone!!

So I did a little experiment over the Thanksgiving holiday and applied some individual lashes. I love lashes, but applying strip lashes everyday is too time consuming for my level of talent of applying them. I watched a video by April of Muffinsismylover2012 applying indies and I surprised that she wore them. I thought those were her lashes! 

I see girls around these parts wearing lashes, some look straight horrible and some look really pretty and natural. I was going for pretty and  natural.:)

My first attempt I bought a combination packet of lashes ( Glam-i in the yellow box) and Ardell Lash Tite Adhesive in Clear. For my second attempt six days later, I bought medium lashes and used some short lashes too.
My First Attempt

The first attempt took almost TWO hours. I was in my bathroom which has bad lighting and I can't really see well in the first place. I also applied some of them on top of the lash line, instead of on the bottom the lash line like April and it took forever.
I'm wearing them in this picture. I lost a couple due to shoddy application. lol! But I loved the look. The ones that stayed on, didn't come off, through makeup remover, face washing,! I was impressed!
My Second Attempt

I used my bedroom lighting and that was lot better to see  for application. I also only used only medium  and short lashes to create the look. The long lengths are too much for me.  I applied them April's way to, on the bottom of the lash line and worked perfectly. I already have very wild lashes so adding lashes to wild lashes actually looked natural. Strip lashes sometimes do not adhere to my lash line because of how my natural lashes grow.

I love these lashes!! They also look even better with mascara. Right now, I'm using Maybelline Clump Crusher, which is perfect because the mascara really doesn't clump, on the natural lashes or the extensions.

So, fam...what do you think? I'm such a kitchen beautician. lol! I don't always get it right, but you never know unless you try.
