Hi! 😊 I want to try out eyelashes and i just want to know where i could find some cheap/affordable lashes that looks real?
Hello! Falsies are one of my biggest beauty guilty pleasures! They’re the easiest way to take your makeup up a notch… from basic to BAM. All it takes is a little practice, and soon it will be second nature to apply lashes and will only take a few moments in your routine.
When you’re first starting out with lashes, I’d say the best ones to pick up would be Ardell lashes. They’re definitely the easiest brand to find (you can get them at pretty much any drugstore, beauty store, or supermarket) and they’re excellent quality for not much money. They cost about $5 depending on where you get them (I can usually get them in my area for $3.99). I like Ardell because they have TONS of different styles, and they’re really easy to apply because the lash band is flexible and never too thick. The lashes themselves never seem to shed on me and as long as you take care of them and clean them after each use, you can use them multiple times.
My favorite lashes from Ardell are the Wispies and the #120 Demis, but if you want a natural look I’d recommend the #110s as seen above. They’re nice and short but still give pretty volume, and the staggered lash length helps them to blend in with your natural lashes easier. Plus, the lash band is clear (see how they look like little bunches at the roots?) which makes them so easy to wear - you don’t need thick liner to hide the lash band with these!
As for glue, most Ardell lashes come with a little tube of glue that will get you through a couple of uses. If you wanted to invest in a big tube that will last you a long time, I’d recommend these:
LashGrip Eyelash Adhesive - $4 This is very similar to Duo Lash Glue but isn’t as expensive. This is also made by Ardell.
Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive - $4 I was recently turned onto this via YouTube, where I saw tons of people using this little cheapie that I had hidden in my lash drawer for who knows how long! This has a brush applicator which is SO easy and quick to use. Just remember to wait about 20 seconds for the glue to get tacky on the lash before you stick them on your eyes!
I hope this helps you! Have fun playing with lashes. For more tips and related posts, check the tags below.

Any beauty tips? and what do you do to get ready for a POT date?
Face: I usually wash my face before and after i wake up. it keeps my skin in routine for not being too oily. i also moisturize my skin daily, this goes for face and body. its keeps me my skin clear because its not drying out and also keeps my body feeling smoother than a baby’s ass. ;) I try to exfoliate maybe 3-4 days prior to a date with a POT. THIS IS IMPORTANT. your makeup will look sooooo much better when you have exfoliated your skin. I use Noxema after a friend recommended it to me recently. IT IS THE LORDS WORK. I SWEAR IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. i use it as a mask at times when im too lazy to wash my face.
Invest in quality Facial Cleansers because it will save you trips to the store and also $$$$
primer: Rimmel Stay Matte Primer/ Milk of Magnesia ( dont knock it til you try it)
I usually take a bath. Yes, a bath. it relieves some of my jitters that i fee. LUSH bath bombs are heaven sent, and you should definitely try one. ( that entire store is my playground.) I shave a day before meeting with a POT. I never actually “Towel Dry” completely because the dampness of my skin will asorb any moisturizer i put on and leave me with touchable soft skin. i try to wear something comfortable yet appealing so that i don’t look my age. Men like a girl but they want a woman, i learned this very quickly.
My hair is usually PIN straight or if im up to it i curl it in soft waves. here’s a good tutorial for wavy hair.
