Tokyo Kawaii TV: Fall Hair and Make-up Coaching part 2

How To: Create your own false lashes (lower & upper)

I love having big kawaii eyes and false lashes. So the Tokyo Kawaii TV show of the same episode shows how falsies are a major hit in Japan. I miss where you can just go and stock in huge bulks in Japan. I still haven't found a good place to put orders online. But Here's a guide how you can actually transform/use the ones you order to make fuller lashes: like if you want a winged effect, lower lashes for your eyes, or more fuller lashes.


I thought this would be helpful to show how you can create your own falsies to make it flare more toward the outer corner of your eye, or even making falsies for your lower lashes. Look at the pictures carefully.
Step 1: You want to take the lash out from the package and lay it out.
Step 2: You would like to cut thin small strips from the actual long lash, so your lower lashes would look more natural with fewer hairs.
 
Step 3: Apply a small thin strip of glue on the lash backbone with a tweezer helping you hold it. Then you apply it toward your lower lash line as close as possible.

You can also use multiple lashes and layer on top of each other to create a fuller look, or just trim off necessary pieces that you want.


I'm going to try this out, hopefully this helps you out.

Oh boy...the lower lash has always been hard for me since I have none at all! It would be so hard to blend :( I would love to see you review some lashes too...I'm obsessed with the Darkness series from Daybeauty.com but they aren't natural. :)

I love reading your posts, so interesting!
