Debunking Lash Myths With The Lash Squad

Will falsies make my eyes look smaller?”

“Are lashes hard to apply?” 

“Do they hurt?”

Are questions like these holding you back from experimenting with new make-up looks? Our fabulous Lash Squad have heard every lash myth under the sun and they are here to debunk them all – so that you can create a flawless lash look without a doubt in sight.

MYTH #1: False lashes will make my eyes look smaller.

Our Lash Squad’s trick is to pick the perfect lash for your eye shape.

If you have small, almond eyes, glam-expert Brooke Gillies recommends the Naturals No. 070. These featherlight lashes are the perfect natural lash to add length to the middle of your eyes and make them appear bigger!

Perhaps you have big round eyes and are looking to elongate your eye shape? Fluttery Light No. 117 Twin Pack will do just the trick. 117 is a light and wispy lash that has a slightly longer outer corner. This will create the illusion of longer, less circular, eyes and give you a subtle cat-eye in the process!

MYTH #2: I’m scared that falsies will hurt my eyes when applied

Lash Squad blogger babe, Amanda Jane is here to assure you that, if applied correctly, you can’t even tell falsies are there!

Before applying your lashes, Amanda recommends that you trim them to fit your eye shape. This will stop the lashes lifting or irritating your eye throughout the day. Also make sure you wait a couple of seconds after applying glue to your lash to let it dry, before applying it to your eyes.

MYTH #3: Everyone will think that my falsies look unnatural and will notice them

Brooke promises that achieving a natural look is simply a matter of choosing the right lash.

For the natural babes, the lightweight and short Naturals No. 035 are ideal. No matter the look, these lashes are perfect as you can build the thickness to your ideal level of impact.

MYTH #4: False lashes are just so hard to apply!

Make-up blogger Ken Valdejueza guarantees that applying false lashes will become second nature after only a few practice-runs.

According to Ken, the angle you are looking at your eyes during application is the most important. Looking down into a mirror, rather than up, is essential to getting the best view of where you need to place the lashes.
