Beauty ~ How to Apply Individual Eyelashes Without Using Permanent Adhesive +Video

Individual Eyelashes

I'm moving away from strip eyelashes and trying out the flairs.  Actually, I used to wear them throughout my flight attendant career but I used a permanent adhesive to keep them on for 2 weeks.  Although I love the way the strip eyelashes make the eyes larger and more sultry, they tend to make me look too dramatic. I wanted a way to enhance my natural lashes without feeling like i'm purposely wearing them.

So I had to find a way to apply the individual eyelashes without making them a permanent fixture on my eyes.  Usually they are applied with a permanent adhesive and worn for up to 2 weeks, but I didn't like how they lifted and felt when they were getting old.  So I started applying them with various non-permanent adhesives to see how they held up.

Beauty ~ Single Short Black Individual Eyelashes to Make Your Eyes Pop

Single Short Black Individual Eyelashes
When I was a flight attendant, I used to always wear these single short individual eyelashes. What I liked abut them was that they would fall off so easily without taking my natural eyelashes out with them.  So part of my daily makeup routine was replacing them just as if I was putting on mascara.

I will confess, I have not worn these individual lashes for almost 5 years.  I've mastered the strip eyelashes and those were all I was wearing. I even made a 3 minute video entitled "Quick and Easy Way to Apply False Eyelashes" to show how simple it was.

But as you know, a beauty addict never throws anything away so all I had to do was go through my eyelash stash to find them.  I was surprised that I had individual lash glue and even some adhesive remover in my stash.  I didn't have to go out and buy anything.

Beauty ~ How I Straighten my Curly Eyelashes

How I Perm and Straighten my Eyelashes

I have really curly eyelashes and it's no secret that curls and coils are part of my African American heritage and it's something i'm really proud of.  With that said, my curly eyelashes really bothers me to the point that straightening them has become a permanent part of my beauty routine.  I have been straightening my curly eyelashes on and off for almost 20yrs using the Optimum Permanent Cream Relaxer in Mild and it makes me very happy!

Beauty ~ eylure Pre-Glued Lashes

eYlure Pre-Glued Lashes
I was looking through items on when I decided to search for false eyelashes, these were the first photos that came up. I thought wow, I've never seen pre-glued lashes before so why not order them. I should say that I don't normally wear false eyelashes unless i'm going out for date night with my husband.  I did a tutorial on YouTube on "Quick & Easy Way to Apply False Eyelashes" which only takes 3 - 5mins or less.  You should watch it if you've struggling to wear them.

Lookbook ~ Revlon Beyond Natural Eyelashes

Revlon Beyond Natural Eyelashes

I've been wearing these eyelashes all week without any eyeliner and I absolutely love them.  They're not marketed as having an invisible band but I can tell you that the band is very thin.  Today's look was done with some of my favorite colors... purple and pink and I paired this look with these lashes so you can see how beautiful they are.

Beauty ~ Loreal's Telescopic Mascara

I just started using the Loreal Telescopic Mascara and i'm absolutely in love with it!  I especially love the narrow wand because my eyelashes are so curly and this narrow wand really get's in and lengthen them out.  These are my natural eyelashes in the photo below.   I've been perming my eyelashes with a mild cream relaxer once a month to make them straighter for the last 20yrs.
