DIY Fake Lashes

Need some gigantic eyelashes sometime soon, say, for Halloween, and don’t want to pay almost $10 for them?  Well I got the tutorial for you!  I found a tutorial on youtube on how to make your own false lashes with just a few materials that most people have around and got to makin’.

Materials:

  • Another fake eyelash (this is just to give you a guide at how long you need to make the lash.  You could also just take a small piece of paper and measure your eye that way)
  • Eyelash glue (Not everyone will have this item; I didn’t, but it’s fairly inexpensive for a bottle of some, especially considering just how many eyelashes you can make with one tube)
  • An old makeup brush (Mine had really stiff bristles so I would never use it because it poked my face all the time.  Be sure to wash it before using it!(Thanks MissVass on reddit.  I assumed this would be common knowledge but better to be safe than sorry!))
  • a plastic work surface (I used a tupperware lid)
  • Something to help you manage the bristles when you inevitably get glue on your fingers (I used a disposable eyeshadow swab thing.  In the video she uses a spatula.)
  • Black eyeshadow(not pictured)
  • Hair spray(not pictured)
  • A curling iron
  • Scissors
  • Any little things you want to add to it for  decoration (feathers, glitter, sequins, etc.)
