False Eyelashes - Did you know?

What are false eyelashes? False eyelashes, or also known as "falsies," are fake eyelashes that were invented to enhance one’s eyes. Think of them as hair extensions for your natural eyelashes. Currently, they are made available and manufactured with human hair, mink hair, or synthetic materials. Falsies are separated into two types: 1) Temporary and 2) Semi-permanent.

Temporary Falsies are any type of lashes designed to be worn for a short period of time. They are not designed to be worn when sleeping, showering, or swimming. They are manufactured either by hand or machine made; and the adhesive that is used for temporary Falsies are made to last for a day or less, and can be easily removed.

Semi-permanent Falsies on the other hand, are known as individual eyelash extensions; and are lashes applied via the "one-by-one (lash by lash) technique," with of course, a surgical type of stronger adhesive. Generally, individual, semi-permanent eyelashes can last for weeks and can be worn in the shower, sleeping and swimming. The better you care for them however, the longer they will stay on. The adhesive bond for individual Falsies are designed to last until they fall out naturally.

For both types, false eye lashes come in a plethora of lengths, thickness, colors and are designed from natural looking to Vavavoom.

Here's a good fact to know! Eyelashes have been used since the beginning of the 20th century. Our beautiful Hollywood Stars were the first to apply false eyelashes. Eyelashes helped them look more magnificent and stand out in the crowd.

At first, eyelashes were made of fringe; which was attached to thread with glue, and subsequently applied to the eyelid. Although the eyelashes failed to look natural, lived a very short life, and was an expensive procedure, the rich and famous maintained its trend.

As the years went by, the introduction and product lifecycle of false eyelashes were not as popular to ordinary consumers. And it's dissolution in trend and lifestyle, was expected to last for only a couple of years. However, in the 50s, its popularity amongst the rich and famous, and on the big screen, inreased its use and demand by the common consumer worldwide.

While it's trending attention grew to great heights, more and more countries began adopting it's usage; in turn allowing Japanese consumers to master it's usage, create novel eyelash application techniques to be more consumer friendly, and fine-tune it's overall look and feel. The fringe was eventually replaced by sable and mink’s fur. In 2006, Japan introduced the lash-by-lash technique, which today, is known to consumers as individual eyelashes.

Eyelash Application Directions

1. Check the length of the strip lashes. Place the strip lash line with tweezers, and measure their width.  The width should be as wide as your natural lash line.

2. Once the suitable width of your strip lashes is determined, trim them accordingly with scissors. Remember however; trim them from each side for evenness. Do not trim them from only one side, for the lash length may become uneven. Once Trimmed, Please move on to step

3. Please clean your eyes and eyelashes of debris. Then hold one of the lashes and apply a very thin line of adhesive on the line of the lashes. Allow the glue or about 28 seconds to 59 seconds. The will cause the glue to become tacky. Please use a small amount of glue, and apply more as required.

4. Apply the false lashes above your eyelashes, as close to your lash line as possible, following its natural curve.

5. Adjust the lashes with your fingertips or tweezers.  Apply eye makeup/mascara as necessary.  You may learn that your new eyelashes may look dramatic enough that you will not require mascara.
