VIRAL HACK | DIY 3D False Eyelashes

Sunday mornings are so lazy, my favourite thing to do is just watch YouTube videos in bed before I get up and out.. This new hack has dropped and basically it makes cheap lashes look expensive by giving them a 3D effect.

I love 3D lashes but they are SO expensive, I really don’t think they are worth £10+ for a set. I have started using GWA Mythical Merbabe lashes, they’re only £4 in Savers (review coming soon) and I love them but when I saw this little hack I thought it was definitely worth a go.

Basically all you need is a spoolie brush, cheap set of lashes and a bit of patience. The method is that you aggressively brush the lashes back towards the band, so I brushed the lashes back using a wiggling technique whilst rolling my brush at the same time and I made sure to scoop the lashes from underneath as I was brushing.

Initially I tried this out with Ardell Demi Wispies which are about average in price and my go to lashes for a natural look.

As you can see the top lash vs the bottom lash it didn’t really make that much of a difference, which was disappointing but they aren’t the typical cheap plasticky lash that this hack is designed for.

Both lashes look exactly the same, the one on the left is in its original state and the one on the right has been hack treated.

Not defeated by the first attempt, I tried again using the cheapest pair of lashes I could find. They’re from China, cost £1.50 and look very false!

The hack worked so well on these lashes! They were so flat and plastic but following the spoolie brush out they became softer and layered. I am so impressed by this!

You can really see a difference in the lashes on the right compared to the original state of the left lashes.

I’m not sure how the original creator of this discovered this method – maybe whilst the lashes were being washed out following use and brushed back in to shape? It is the best thing I will probably learn from the beauty world this year, I just wish I thought of it first 🙈

22 🎉

I cannot believe it has been over a week since my birthday on Saturday, having a birthday on the weekend is the most convenient thing ever as not only are you excited for the weekend but also for your birthday, it makes planning so much easier – who wants to go to a club on a Wednesday? I also made the most of it and took Friday and Monday off at work to get a much needed four day weekend after the chaos of the holiday season!

WHY I QUIT TWITTER

Happy Sunday Cheeleaders, I hope 2018 has been kind to you so far. It feels like it has been ages since I wrote a proper post as I was getting in to the routine of posting every day sometimes twice in one day.

For me, this year I want change. In terms of the blog I am looking to blog better, more effectively and I read something interesting which I can’t find the link to share with you all but basically it was saying choose one or two social media platforms and focus on them. Reading this came at the right time because I was getting quite bored with social media, I was spending ages on them and didn’t feel like I was getting much back out of them.  Continue reading “WHY I QUIT TWITTER”

TUTORIAL | Firework nail art

One of my change of ways (I don’t like resolutions) is that I will be using up my current products before buying new ones, so this look was actually was from Diwali and as new years is also a celebratory time with fireworks I thought why not rework something I have already done.
