A Little Lash can go a Long Way

Last week I decided that it was about time I branched out a little bit and tried something new.  (Ha ha!  Ry would totally roll his eyes at that statement because I am ALWAYS doing something new!  Poor man can never even guess what I will come up with next!)

Anyways, I decided that I wanted to try false eye lashes.  In my typical fashion, I researched the options online.  I wanted cheap and easy.  The overwhelming consensus was to go to Sally's Beauty Supply and get Demi Whispies by Ardell.  I also learned that glue was what made or broke the entire effect.  Duo Adhesive was what everyone seemed to agree worked best.  You can get it in clear or dark.  I went with clear.  You would want to use the dark option if you wanted your eyes to look really heavily lined on the top.

So off I went to Sally's to make my $10 purchase!  Since I had no idea what I was doing I had to watch youtube to see how to apply these crazy things!  I learned that the glue is super important!  If you don't get enough on or on the ends well enough you will be in big trouble!  After a few false starts I was able to put them on! (the more you do it, the easier it gets) 

I put on my eyeshadow and liner before putting on the lashes because they seemed to get in the way a little bit.  If you try it out I think it is a good idea to use a liner or dark shadow to help blend the line of your real lashes with the line of the false ones.

The glue was every bit as good as they say it is!  The lashes stayed put all day through lots of wind, rain, shower, nap, and whatever else I got myself into that day!  Even though they survived the nap, I would advice not laying on them.  I got up with one lash curling a funky way!

One small little adventure for me, but it is fun to feel a little bit more glamorous once in awhile!  Us Moms need that! (Even if only other moms at preschool see you do a little something to make you feel good!)
