Playing with makeup is fun. It is something I have done since I can remember. I love being able to transform myself from one thing to another. Maybe one day I want to look beach-chic and the next day just chic. Or how about a girls night out look or church with the family? You can take your face, the blank canvas, and imply whatever persona you are looking for just by carefully choosing colors and placement. False lashes are icing on the cake when it comes to makeup. Nothing amps up a look more than lashes. FavULash’s Amanpulo (4534) are very dramatic and really create a sexy “come hither” look.
FavULash is a relatively new false lash company. The founder of this company is actually a co-founder of the gorgeous eDiva Beauty organizers that I reviewed HERE. As soon as I found out that the same people that made the eDiva are behind these lashes I knew that I wanted to try them because that beauty organizer is the nicest piece of beauty organization I have ever laid eyes on so I completely trust them!
Just like the packaging says, these lashes are made from 100% Human Hair and have an invisible band. The band for me is the make it or break it part of the lashes. All of my very, very favorite eyelashes have this invisible band. They are what makes the difference between an obvious false lash look on the base of the lashes. I don’t want tracks to be seen when I rock false lashes!
Some of my tips to wearing false lashes are as follows:
EYELINER! If I am taking my makeup to the next step with false lashes then I am more than likely really playing up my eyes. I do liner on my tight line and usually my waterline as well as on the base of the lid where the lashes start. This is going to create camouflage for the lash base. You don’t have to be perfect when placing them when you have a dark base to work with.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL! One thing I do when I open a brand new pack of lashes is I CAREFULLY pull the lash off the base and start flexing the band around. Bending it and warming it up. The more natural the movement of the band is, the easier it applies.
TRIM! Most of the time lashes are a little longer than the width of the eye. If you don’t trim them down you will get poked throughout the day and it will be an extremely unpleasurable feeling. Once lashes start annoying me it only takes a few minutes before I take them off. I always trim them from the inside because MOST lashes’ outer edges are the fabulous part.
GLUE! You are going to need a good glue. My favorite glue is the Black Duo adhesive. I started out with the clear but I feel like it is more visible than the black after all is said and done.
PATIENCE! After applying the glue to the lashes you need to wait until it is not wet, but tacky. It needs to be sticky enough to adhere to the lid but not wet enough to slide around.
MASCARA! Apply a little mascara before application to create a nice base for the falsies to lay on. Also apply a little after you get the lashes on to blend them into your natural lashes. Be careful not to use to much mascara on the last part because too much will cause them to be unwearable again.
TAKE CARE! I take great care of my false lashes so I typically get 3-5 wears before they start looking ragged.
I am pretty good with false lashes because I was forced to wear them daily for 6-9 months. A long time ago I had a mishap with a lash curler and it won. I accidentally ripped out ALL of my lashes on one eye so I had to learn pretty quickly how to make false lashes look good and most importantly real. At the time I had a bank job so I had to look conservative on a daily basis. The FavULash Amanpulo lashes are far from conservative but I love the first shot in this post where it looks like I took some crazy hair growth hormone. haha
I actually really enjoy these FavULash Amanpulo lashes. They are comfortable to wear due to the nice band, they look unbelievably beautiful with the different hair lengths, and every now and then I love a little drama — as long as it is on my lashes! :)
