I love LOVE fake eye lashes but I couldn’t afford to get put on every time there was a fun event.  So, I went to the drug store, bought the glue and the individual lashes and I practiced applying them myself.  The total was around $8-9.  Not bad at all.  And they looked great, once you get the hang of it.  I used tweezers and a magnifying mirror.  Just try it.  The only drawback- you have to wait for them to fallout.  If you pull them out, your real lashes will come with them!  Oh, before that I did try to do those lashes that come in a strip, they were IMpossible.  I threw them away, I couldn’t get them lined up right, you have to trim them to match the length of your lid and when you think you got it, it comes right off- disaster!

the drugstore brand are perfectly fine, in fact alot of salons that apply lashes use the same brand, and they also have a small tube called eyelash adhesive REMOVER, so you dont have to pull them out and pull ours out with them!

I also love it when MAC applies them for me.  Give it a shot!  If i could wear fake lashed everyday i would!

The Shu Uemura ones are great, but I have to tell you, I used the strips for my wedding and for events, and the ones from the drugstore work just fine.  The strips do take some practice, but make sure you measure them to your eye and trim to the proper length BEFORE you apply the glue.  And after you apply the glue, let it dry for 30 seconds or so, so it is tacky when you apply it.  line your eyes first.  Then once you get them on, use a cuticle pusher or the end of a thin makeup brush to push them down closer to your lash line.  These were drugstore strips from my wedding day

oh forgot to mention…get the ones that kind of alternate between longer and shorter on the strip or ones hat criscross so it doesnt look like an obvious line of fake lashes.  like these or these

I got mine at Walgreens…=] MAC ones are good, too, but the Walgreens $4 ones work just as well

I think it also depends on if you are a blondy blonde with really pale eyelashes or if you naturally have darker/thicker eyelashes.  I’ve found that some of the drugstore ones look a little “fake” because I have naturally pale lashes.  I do like the Sephora brand ones and also Shu Uemura (I got the “partial soft cross”)

I am a lover of MAC lashes – there are so many different kinds, and someone is right there to guide you so you end up with the look you are going for.

Not sure about lighter shades, though. I’m a dark brunette, so I go with black lashes….

@NAPickle – I line my eyelids first, then again after they are on.  I use powder eyeliner though, so it just fill in the areas that need filling in or where the glue is showing/uneven (ooh another tip – try it out with both the black glue and the white glue to see which works better…I use the white)  I do the same with mascara – a coat on my real lashes, then a few coats with both on to blend them together. 

Miss root makes a good point – if you have lighter lashes, you want to go with a thinner more natural looking kit like Shu Uemura.  If you are medium or dark though, the drugstore ones are great.

I got Ardell ones for pretty cheap at Target.  They were very natural looking.  I wore them on New Years Eve and they held up well.

The MAC ones aren’t that expensive, like $8  and I think they last a lot longer than the drugstore ones. The Make Up For Ever ones are beautiful, but way expensive at $15 a pop.

ardell ones are awesome~ in my kit i mostly have DARKNESS (from Korea) and many I bought from Taiwan~ they are made very well~ ^^ and avg. about 2 dollars per pair.  That’s why I think it’s ridiculous for MUAs to charge 10 or 15 dollars for lash application. That’s just my personal opinion though~

DUO adhesive glue is the best~ they come in clear or black (blends easily with black eyeliner)

and no! natural falsies are not an oxy moron. The ones that are half (?) or you can cut it up into smaller segments and apply look more natural than full strip~ so you can buy some and try it out.
