Being somewhat of an eye-phobe (the thought of eye drops and contact lenses sends shivers down my spine) I thought the process of applying, wearing and removing fake eyelashes would be a lot more traumatising then it actually was. It always seemed like a complicated and unnecessary accessory that I was better off without. I have to say, I was completely and utterly incorrect in my assumptions. They were easy to apply, easy to wear and even easier to remove. Being new to the world of fake eyelashes, before attempting my first application I scoured the internet for top tips from the experts. Truth be told, I didn't learn that much more than what was on the foldout instructions that came with the lashes themselves. My top tip would definitely be to just follow those handy included instructions.
For my virgin falsies trial, I went for the dramatic and beautifully full 10th Anniversary Girls Aloud lashes from Eylure (pictured below). They were amazing. They're so thick and full I didn't even need to put mascara on. While they might be a bit much for my actual wedding day, I definitely want something along these lines (maybe just taken down a notch or two) for my big day look.
All in all, I've 100% been converted to the joy that is false eyelashes. With literally hundreds of styles, brands and shapes to chose from I know what I'll be trialling every Saturday night from now until my wedding day...
