false eyelashes

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Im new to this forum so first of all hi to everyone! Second, sorry if u dont understand me, english isnt my first language


So, Ive just registered to this forum cause I have some doubts about this particular "tool", false eyelashes, I dont even know if you guys call them tools or what, and sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this thread on hahah


anyways, heres my problem:


I dont really understand how to use false eyelashes. I mean, they are usually really expensive, but I kinda see girls wearing them more than only on special events. My first question on this would  be, is it okay to re-use false eyelashes? Or you only use them once and then they belong in the trash?


Another thing that I dont quite understand, is it normal for them to be so long? Are they all so long? I actually only used them once, and  bought them from primark, they just looked so big... and big as in long, is it normal? or only they were like that cause I bought them on Primark?


thanks for the answers!!

Welcome! False lashes are all different. You can cut them to your preferred length if you would like before putting them on. You want to use a special glue to apply them with.

I agree with Reija! falsies are always in their longest 'state' when they are in the box. This is to match every eyeshape. I've bought them at the primark store a couple of months ago, but wasnt really satisfied with how the hairs were attached to the band. Alot of primark falsies have really thin bands, so it is (especially for me because i am terrible with false lashes) really hard putting them on because they tend to bend alot in directions you dont want them to bend.


For re-using them, that isnt a problem. I use them till the hairs fall out haha!

When i put them on, i curl my lashes afterwards (together, own lashes and falsies) and put on my mascara, so the mascara sticks on the lashes. When i remove my lashes, i gently pull of the remaining glue with a tweezer and grab an old toothbrush. Place the falsies on a towel or other surface that may get dirty, grab a make up removing lotion and brush the mascara away that is stuck on the falsies with the toothbrush and lotion. Dont brush too hard because that will pluck out the hairs!


Hope this helped you!

Reusing your lashes isn't a problem if you know how to properly clean them. You will notice the eyelashes with thicker bands will last longer as they can withstand being cleaned and usually if you have put mascara on the lashes it will effect the longevity of the lashes.  How you remove the false lashes from your eyes will also determine if they can be saved for another use.

As for the length, cut them before putting them on.

    • Wow, so much I missed during my No Buy Year! I see Sephora has a new bag called Play! Smarts. Instead of a random set of samples, customers are given products around a particular theme. Also, an online class is provided. It just feels so organized, and maybe a way for me to actually use things from a box instead of letting them pile up. I wish I would have gotten the skin care bag for women over 50! Now on the site I see they had a complexion makeup bag, but it's out of stock. 😶 Does anyone know how often these come out? Makeup overwhelms me, so it would be good to practice on one area at a time. This speaks to me on many levels. I've actually never tried the regular Play! box. I got one of the luxe bags and really liked it. They had Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Cream in the recent Play! Smarts box. I'm going to be looking out for the next one. Update: the classes can be seen on Sephora's YouTube channel. History of boxes so far: June 2018 - Glitter Eyes for Real Life - the inaugural box.  August 2018 - Superfoods Feed Your Face  September 2018 - Skincare by Age 30s, 40s, 50s.  October 2018 - K-Beauty: Skin Innovation October 2018 - Superfoods: Inner and Outer Beauty  November 2018 - Complexion Your Way: Dewey and Matte It should be time for a new one, no? Maybe it was test marketing for last year.  I recall when looking through magazines from the 1970s there was a mail order beauty club called The Butterfly Club. They would send a shipment for eye makeup the first time, lip makeup the next time, etc., so you could make yourself over little by little. I loved the ad. I have been unable to find the ad online. Anybody remember? I believe it was like Cosmetique Club.  I liked Birchbox Beta from 2017, where they sent kits based on a specific area. I got overwhelmed with all the choices they had, though. Could never decide which one to get, or should I get the regular box, or the curated box.
