From this day forward, let the official makeup record show that “Never give up!” is my mantra when it comes to false lashes.
Because today I almost gave up after 10 minutes, and if I had, I would have missed out on a great set of Eylure London No. 080 Lengthening Lashes.
It wasn’t because they were hard to apply or uncomfortable. Quite the opposite, actually.
The No. 080s weigh next to nothing and feel fab. Plus, they slip right on.
And I love how long and lush, but still remotely natural, they make my lashes look. Perfectly appropriate for daytime eyes or for natural-ish glam evening looks.
But I’ll be damned! — the first time I applied them, the lashes on my left eye didn’t feel right at all.
The right side though? No problem. I couldn’t even feel them.
The mystery took me a little while to figure out…
Before applying these, I’d trimmed them down from the inside ends, because Eylure lashes usually run a little long for me, so I trimmed them both to the same spot, assuming they’d then fit and look symmetrical.
But doh! — Karen, your eyes aren’t symmetrical.
My left eye is sightly smaller than my right…
So I snipped a bit more off the left and tried again.
Voila! They fit just as well as they did on the right.
Long story short, give them a whirl. They’re easy to apply, look fairly natural and, once you get the right length, super comfortable. 🙂
