Falsies for the Faint of Heart

I have wanted to try false eyelashes for years. Other people aspire to write great novels, go to the Olympics, or basically do things which make a difference in the world – I want to adorn my eyes with someone else’s hair. FYI – should I become posthumously famous I want to make sure my shallowness is well documented!

In any case, I decided that if I didn’t get around to it soon I would be trying to glue those suckers on with a shaky hand in a nursing home. Not a pretty vision, so off to the MAC counter I went for a lesson in eyelash application.

As you can see there were lots of types to choose from and frankly, some were quite daunting. Think drag queen style makeup. But lovely Lisa, my makeup artist, selected a very natural looking pair for me and showed me how to apply them. She did one eye and I did the other. (I wish I had taken before and after photos – when I put them on again I promise to do so.) I was kind of surprised that it was not as difficult as I thought it would be.

Here is the pair I ended up buying – again, sorry for the lack of photo. They did look very natural and complemented my eyes nicely. After about five minutes I forgot I had them on and I think I preferred them to heavy mascara application. So, if you too are interested in trying false lashes I say go for it!
