Glamour, here you come…
Fill in the blank: False lashes are the _______ way to add glamour to any look. If you said “best” – you are 100% correct. If you said “easiest” or “quickest”, I’d love to know what you’ve been smoking. Though well worth the effort, applying falsies is never going to be as easy or quick as plain ol’ mascara. But, with quality products and ONE amazing tip (yes, one), you can certainly make the process easier and quicker.
The new Urban Decay Urban Lash Kit ($30) has four products that together make one sexy pair of eyes! The kit contains:
• a pair of Urban Lashes in Minx – these jet back synthetic lashes are very full and lush, with a pretty and subtle flare at the ends. This honestly may be the most gorgeous everyday lashes I’ve ever worn. Meaning, no rhinestones or feather tips, just a beautiful, wearable shape.
• Lash Adhesive – latex-free glue in the coolest iridescent tint. It makes it really obvious to see and fun to apply (I actually let out an “oh!” ) but dries completely clear.
• a travel-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero – is it possible for one to have too many black eyeliners? Especially when it’s an award winning, gold standard one like this. Answer: no!
• Urban Lash False Lash Mascara – perhaps my favorite part of the kit. It’s an extra glossy mascara with an extremely liquid consistency. The wetness of it, combined with the small sized applicator allows you to really work it into both sets of lashes (false and real) and seamlessly blends them. LOVE this product.
Here’s the tip: When I learned this, I felt like I turned from falsie novice to pro overnight (and it’s deceptively simple). When applying, look DOWN into a mirror. The ideal scenario would be a pedestal type mirror, tilted and positioned under your chin. This allows you to see you lash line very clearly and massively cuts down on blinking. It works, trust me (and the makeup artist who taught be who used to apply 10 pairs of lashes a day!)
Combine that tip, with the incredible Urban Lash Kit from Urban Decay and you’ll have a much quicker and easier route to glamour then you’ve ever taken before!
