I have a love/hate relationship with falsies. I LOVE how they look especially since I was blessed with 9 of the saddest, puniest lashes but hey 9 is better than nothing, right? And as a makeup artist for over 18+ years, I know how transformative lashes can make a look really come together and make eyes pop like crazy especially on video and photos!
The hate part and i’m not a fan of that word especially in this context but lash glue and I are not friends! I have SUPER sensitive eyes and even when I choose the most feather light bandless lashes, my eyes are bloodshot within an hour of wearing them. Trust me friend, i’ve tried EVERY type of lash glue out there and it’s definitely not a latex allergy but a general lash glue sensitivity.
Last summer I started wearing MAGNETIC false lashes from the original creators, One Two Lash at a whopping $60+ but they lasted me for over 5 months. Just as I was about to plunk down more $$$$ to get a fresh new set, I noticed that one of my favorite traditional glue-on lash brand, Ardell came out with their own magnetic lashes so of course I made myself the guinea pig and they are under $17.00!
These are my two favorite style but I find myself wearing the fuller, fluffier, fringier, Demi Wispies Lash style. Please note there’s a “Wispy” style which is wider than the Demi which is still a full lash strip but not nearly as wide which usually requires no trimming!

If you just want to add some lashes to the outer corners for a more subtle look as well as easier to apply 1/2 strip lashes try the Accents.
This tool is only $4.99 & helps to align and position your lashes if you find it difficult to hold with just your fingers. The pointed end helps to push the lashes into the lash line after you place them. I talk about all this in the tutorial video below! http://shopstyle.it/l/L3cH
