Rumor has it that Kim Kardashian spends upwards of $1000 per week on eyelashes and/or eyelash extensions. She is constantly photographed with beautiful and luxurious lashes everywhere she goes. Well, you can get the same results as Kim K- within 20 minutes and for about $10 total, plus they can last 2-4 weeks. Go as dramatic or demure as your style suggest!
I purchased Ardell Duralash Naturals with adhesive from Amazon.com. They are sold at most drugstores and beauty supply shops also. Amazon had the best price and I didn’t feel like going to the store.
As far as looks go, I prefer the natural looking knot-free flares in medium black. If you want more dramatic results, Ardell offers these. Although, I don’t know if they’re knot-free. For long-lasting lashes, use Andrea permalash adhesive (seen below in the clear bottle) and Andrea lashfree remover (in the green bottle).
Before starting make sure that your eyes are freshly cleaned and free of oils, makeup or residue. The adhesive will not stick properly if not. You don’t wanna waste um, right?
Ok- Let’s get some lashes BABY!
What you will need:
First, dab a small- pea sized amount of adhesive onto a piece of aluminum foil or plastic. Use a toothpick to get this out if it’s thick and fussy. Add more adhesive as needed because it will begin to dry.
Using your tweezers, gently grab an eyelash cluster and dip the tip into the adhesive. Make sure you don’t have a big glob. A little goes a long way.
Looking down into your mirror, apply the lash to the middle portion of your eye first. Place the lashes as close to the root of your real lashes as possible without adhering it to your skin. This can be tricky but you have plenty of time to put them into position, so don’t rush. Stretch your eye out if that helps.
Working your way outward, place the lashes as close together as you like. The closer they are, the more dramatic the effect. Then, sparingly move toward the tear duct. When you get to the end of your eye, evaluate where any adjustments need to be made. Add more if needed. Generally, 1 eye will consist of approx. 14 lash extensions. Apply to the lower lash line if desired.
Congrats! Now you have beautiful, long, flirty lashes! You can reapply them anytime or as needed when your real lashes shed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or comment below! Thanks for viewing! XX
