Every damn day


I have turned into one of those people - the ones that wear false lashes every damn day.

There I was in the supermarket buying razors and other glamorous paraphernalia when I saw the false eyelash stand. It was packed with lashes and then…then I spotted the Eylure 143's.

Similar to those Girl Aloud "Nicola" lashes, albeit a more wearable version, I am not sure if I have ever used these before. Regardless of that fact now I use them every single day.

High maintenance much? 

They really are the perfect fluttery false lash, successfully adding thickness and drama without completely overwhelming the eye. I cut them in two and whack half on each eye and end up with something akin to an instant eye lift.



Here are the steps I follow:

  • Buy lots with every supermarket shop
  • Go home and cut the lashes so that you end up with 4 pieces. This will mean that the pack will last at least 4-6 days. 
  • Use half a lash from each side on each eye. This ensures that you end up with a tapered finish, with the longer lengths resting on the outer corner. If necessary I trim the ends gently to ensure a better integration on the eye. 
  • Apply my trusty Duo glue, wait 30 seconds-ish, and then place on the outer corner.
  • Pull them gently so that they start right on the outer lash line for the ultimate lift and add a little mascara to finish.

Done.

I am well and truly addicted and although it's added some serious expense to my routine, I can still get ready in the same amount of time.

I can't emphasise how much these little bits of plastic give me confidence. You may of course disagree but I don't think they look too outlandish - they give just enough drama and definition.

If you haven't tried the Eylure 143 then I highly recommend you go out right now and pick up a pair.

Even the most novice eyelash wearer will be able to cope with applying a half of these on their lash line - trust me I should know! :)

    1. *high fives* I LOVE these! I dabbled in some other lashes and then found these babies. I like that they aren't mega expensive as well!

  2. I just don't have the guts to start wearing false eyelashes even though I love them in other people! I keep thinking that they will somehow move around and I will end up with a false eyelash on my nose or something... Looks great on you though!

    1. that's why you need Duo glue that you can buy in MAC/Boots. That stuff does not budge! Start with a half lash and see what you think :)

    1. haha I keep looking at the GIF and wondering why I have to shift my head so much to look down but anyway, I highly recommend these! It will make you feel very "done" even though it's such an easy addition to the makeup routine.

  5. I have to admit that I never have tried them out so far. But to cut them in two pieces sounds so convincing that now I want also to try this :) Thanks for this tip! Now I need only a supermarket ;)

    1. Ah you have to try Nikita! Half a lash is the way to go if you find them a bit fiddly - that and just the right amount of glue (go for as little as possible). I bet they will look fab!

    1. You know I haven't used Eylure for agessss but I think they are as good as some of the more expensive brands. I just wish they were about a £1 a pair - then they would be perfect haha :)

  10. I find applying eye lashes so tedious, I end up getting stressed out and reverting back to mascara the majority of the time. Wish I could do it as quick as you do! They look fab xx

    I'm heading to Boots :)

  15. Usually I don't use lashes everyday - it seems like way too much work... But when I see that kind of result I always promise myself to start doing this more often :)))

  16. Beautiful.

    I've managed to avoid false lashes for this long, and I think I'll continue without them. It just seems like too much of a slippery slope....I'm sure once I see how amazing they make my eyes look I'll never want to go back!

  17. I think this is why I've never tried false lashes (although I have at least 3 sets) - I'm afraid I'll get addicted and need to wear 'em every day :-P

  21. I LOVE the gif! I have never really dabbled with false lashes as I always thought I would find them too fiddly but I love the idea of cutting them in half. I don't know what this says about me but it is now my number one goal in life to try these. x

  22. You look unreal in those lashes! I wish I had the patience to wear falsies every day - maybe I'll give it a shot. Could be an interesting beauty experiment! These lashes look amazing, I'll have to see whether they're available in Canada!

  23. The eyelashes look great on you, definitely perfect for every day wear. I wish I could rock false eyelashes but they make me feel like I've got a spider on me and it freaks me out. I'm totally normal.

  27. Oh wow! Have you always been a frequent fake eyelash wearer? I wear them now and then but not enough I don't think. Your post has kinda made me feel like wearing them. At least try to for a whole week! See how I go:-)

  32. I absolutely love the look of a false lash, but I find them so hard to put on! And I'm sure I'd be worried about them falling off or something during the day. I'll definitely try these for a night time look at first ;]

    1. Duo glue! I swear by the stuff although it does contain latex and I know many people are allergic to that. if you are not it's the only way to go!

    1. I bet you could! The key is to apply the right amount of glue - enough to make it stick but not too much. I think that's the tricky bit so I tend to start with a light amount and see how it goes.

  35. I have tried loads of lashes and never ever set foot outside with any of them. I buy them stick them on decide they look too false and rip them off. Wasted loads doing this.
    I may give these a try! They look lovely on you

    1. I was like that. I have small lids/eyes - no Khardashian eye space up in here - so felt a bit silly with a full lash. That's why you HAVE to try half a lash. I promise that it looks a lot more wearable/normal :)

  36. These look so pretty Laura! If you love lashes then you need to try the Velour Mink lashes, they are unreal. I love the Whispie Sweet Nothing style.

  39. Hi ! I love falsies - I always wear them for evening events or special dinners. I have heard though that if you wear them every day it can be damaging to your real eyelashes and eventually makes them weak and slows the growth process.... have you heard this or know if it is true? (I hope not because honestly I would love to wear them everyday if it wasn't !!) xx

    1. I do think they are sadly. I will try and control myself but at the moment I am wearing them basically every day. I wish I could get them permanently attached : ) haha

  40. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of 10 years. When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my greatest surprise my loan was granted with
    an interest of 2%. I was able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a settled family. So if you want any type of loan for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail navaroloancompany@yahoo.com.I just fulfilled my vow.
