Date December 24, 2019

The numbers are staggering

Making false eyelashes look natural is an art indeed. But here's the good news, anyone can learn the trick they need to get it done.

If eyelashes are your thing, you're not alone. It has been reported that the sales of false lashes have increased massively. Nielsen estimated that there was a 21% spike in the dollar amount of fake lashes sold for one week in September 2018 alone. Between 2017 to 2018, sales of eyelashes soared by up to 31% in dollars.

These numbers do beg an interesting question, why are we so in love with false lashes? One study arrived at the conclusion that many people appreciate long eyelashes because they provide the illusion of wide eyes which is believed to be an aesthetically-pleasing trait for women. The wide, round or shall we say doe-eyed look has always been used to connote honesty, kindness, beauty, and innocence.

Steps to apply your false eyelashes easily

If you are like many people who struggle with placing on their eyelashes, then you'll find these simple steps useful.

Beauty influencer Raye Boyce (@itsmyrayeraye) demonstrated her three simple steps for successfully placing false eyelashes.

  1. Apply your adhesive directly on your eyelids (where the lashes would go). Start at the outer corner and work your way in.
  2. Using a pair of tweezers or your fingers, place the lashes gently on the line you drew.
  3. Finally, blend the fake one and your natural eyelashes together to keep things smooth.

You should also keep in mind that your false eyelashes need some care to keep them in quality shape. According to LashesbyValentina, all you need to remember is to cleanse them regularly and handle them with care.
