False eyelashes are the quintessential beauty accessory. With so many styles, colors and lengths to choose from, the possibilities are endless. Lashes have the ability to transform your look effortlessly, but, first, you always want to make sure the lash fits your eye shape. If it doesn’t, trim the lashes with scissors from the outer edge a small piece at a time until they fit perfectly. Be careful not to trim too much or they will be too small. For beginners, I always suggest using Duo Eyelash Adhesive in clear; you can buy it at any beauty supply store or at department store makeup counters. If you mess up, it is easier to wipe away than the dark glue. Deciding on the right pair of lashes can be difficult, so I have selected a few of my favorite lashes for you to check out. From natural to dramatic, these lashes will be a perfect fit for you and your alter ego.
