playing with falsies~

It has been a while since i did a make-up look post. This post had been sitting on my draft for like forever. I feel guilty for not posting this asap. Well, now i get to have a bit of a free time so i was able to do a bit of blogging. I'm sorry if this had been delayed for months!

I was quite busy cleaning our house the past couple of weeks so i wasn't able to blog properly. I moved to my parent's room because i don't like sleeping in an air-conditioned room anymore. So now my room is only being used by my 3 younger brothers, i only stay here every time i use my pc though. So this is already their room & now i'm in a bigger room all by myself. Yay!

Anyway, going back, i decided to play with the false lashes that i got months ago from

I got a box full of upper lashes & 4 lower lashes (as per my request). I have always wanted to try wearing lower lashes & now i get to try all i want!

This post is not a full make-up look though. I haven't got enough time to do a full make-up.. but i'll get to it someday.hehe

The sample that they sent me was A400. It's a full set of 10 pairs, i just played with one of them the time i got it that's why one is missing..hehe

This is how it looks like.

They are actually quite long compare to the traditional lashes like Ardell, Andrea, etc. At first i thought that i won't be able to use it because it seems like it would give me a very dramatic look even though it's supposed to look natural but i'm mistaken. It still gave me a nice look~!

Once you remove it from the box, it would have these extra strands on them that you would need to cut. If the lashes are too long for you you can just trim it on the sides to fit your eyes. Luckily, i don't need to trim it.

So, first thing to do is to properly line the eyes...
Lining your eyes can give a different eye shape. See how different my right eye looks compare to my left eye? It looks bigger,ne? It's because i made the middle part thicker compare to the sides, plus i winged it out so that it would lift my eyes even though i made a thick line at the top. This a nice trick to make your eyes look bigger even though you don't have geo lenses.

With that done, it's time to add color to the outer lower part of the eye area.

Go for a dark color. I was just feeling lazy to look for a darker color that's why i opted for this color, but it would be a lot better if you would have a chocolate brown or even black to give definition to your eyes. Doing so would make your eyes seem bigger.

Did you notice the difference between the eye shape?
My left eye looks small & droopy (i hate to use this term but for the lack of it, i'll just go for this..), but my right eye seems bigger. Make sure that you apply a white eyeshadow at the inner eye area so to give that "awake" look. I just forgot to do so when i took this...hehe

Going back to the lashes, make sure that you trim the excess strands

When i apply glue to my falsies, i do not apply it directly from the tip of the tube because somehow my clumsiness always gets the better part of me that i ended up also applying glue to the lashes itself therefore ruining it before i even get to use it. I have destroyed a couple of lashes all because of that.

Pardon me for the blurry pic, i was having a hard time getting my camera to focus.

So now i put the glue on the edge of something then i just run the edge of the lashes on the glue while holding it with a tweezer. It always makes my work easier & no danger of putting too much glue on the lashes.

This is how it looks like when applied...

I used mac woodwinked on the lid & mac sugarshot as the highlighter. Even though it's long, it still looks natural & this feels light. Most synthetic lashes makes me feel sleepy every time i apply it i guess it's because it's somewhat heavy, but not this! in fact it almost feels like it's made of natural hairs~!

Me like it a lot~!

See how long it is?!
You can even see my real lashes on that pic. It would be the straight lashes below the curl of the falsies. Again, even though this is long, it still feels light & airy!

This is good for natural or dramatic look as well! Pardon the picture, i did not apply any face make-up hence you could see redness on my cheek area. I only applied pink lipstick though. It's Ever Bilena Off Beat Pink.

If only this is available locally i would buy lots & lots of them but, unfortunately, this can only be bought online. You can buy it at for only $6.84. I have to say that this is really cheap but the quality is good~!

I highly recommend this!
I would definitely buy this again...once i got over the fear of Customs tax...LOL!

Anyway, moving on to the lower lashes. You have to help me in on this... What lashes do you think suits my eye? I did not stick them on with glue though~!

Let's start first with eyelash number 8

This is how it looks like on my eyes.

I think this would be good as outer lower lashes only but i'm still not sure if it's ok as a full lower lash...hmmm... what do you think?

Next is would be the eyelashes number 6

This is how it looks like on my eyes

I think this would be good for those who prefers dark smokey eye... especially if you like to also line your lower lash area with dark color, but not with natural look,ne?

Then the 3rd one would be this

This is how it looks like on my eyes...

I think this would better suit those who do gothic eye make-up. A really heavy dark eye make-up would definitely make the eyes looks bigger with this. Pair it with a heavy lash, then you would be able to rock the perfect gothic look!

Last would be this one...

This is how it looks like on my eyes...

I think that this would look great naturally if only the lash band would be transparent. Unfortunately, this has a dark band so it will not be good for a natural look.

I'll be doing a full make-up look with each lashes.
This is just a preview of how each of them looks like.

Anyway, what do you think?
What lower lashes suit my eye the most?

I missed playing with my eyeshadows~!
I have to do a make-up look sooner or later!

Do you use false lashes?
What kind?

Hope you all have a great evening/day,hunnies~!
Jaa ne!

Nice review. I am not a fan of falsies simply because I am such a klutz and on my very first attempt, I glued my eye and couldn't open it. XD

i like bottom falsies 8! :)

and ure eyes must be so elongated that you need not cut the falsies (or are the falsies just really short? im not sure.)

I'm too lazy for falsies. I LOVE THE EYE MAKEUP.... well, one eye. hehehe. Your natural eyes look pretty too =] You just enhanced it! I think number 8 and MOC are the best looking ones.
