Get comfy, grab a drink or snack and let’s dive into this week’s episode.
Just a small note: I’m not affiliated or sponsored by the brands I mention here these are just my personal opinions.
Nothing wrong that I started in this stage of my life to wear fake eyelashes, haha, to be honest, the way I thought of them was as a big no they seemed so fake like you could tell in a person and looked funny to me, they looked in my perspective like trying way too much and couldn’t see the use in wearing them or understand why women and some of my friends would put them at all! Quite frankly I felt embarrassed to ask my friends for the fear that unintentionally would put them on the spot and make them feel bad!
When I wanted to put on makeup again and knew I could wear it with the mask on, I realized that the way to express the makeup with a Mask on is through the eyes now they are the center of attention so I needed to make my eyes a bit more dramatic which was new to me since my makeup prior the pandemic even though had color in it was never super bold ar dramatic as nowadays. This is when I started looking for tutorials on Youtube.
While I was watching them, I noticed most of the videos ended with the people putting on fake eyelashes and all of a sudden I understood the big difference they make! Now I know why women love them, They beautify the eye in such a way but not only that the entire makeup look even if the you tuber was not entirely happy with their look they said that no worries the eyelashes will make it all better and oh my gosh it did! This was eye-opening in my life!
They always recommended the lashes they used however all were eyelashes that you put on with lash glue, I tried those just once and I hated them! I still do haha never again! The problem I saw is first to put them on is not as easy it takes patience and time one can get frustrated easily on this step, ( to the gents out there that ever wondered why women are always late when going out on dates well I’m telling you this might be part of that 🤣) once I had them on I could see it with my own eyes how It truly elevates your beauty to a whole other level! After I wore them and was ready to remove them I found removing them was easy but the glue stuck on my natural lashes! is so hard to remove! I kid you not it took me a month to remove them 😳
So just before I gave up the idea of using fake eyelashes I found that there is a magnetic option! Was very rare to see you tuber using this type of lashes so I looked on Amazon the place that sells almost if not all that comes to mind haha did some research on the best-reviewed magnetic lashes and found the brand Arishine that sells a five pair set with two magnetic liners included for $ 21.99 which is a very good deal hard to pass on.
What sold me on this type of eyelashes is that they stick to the eyeliner no glue needed and were super easy to remove with makeup remover! I tried them out and they looked really good! I felt pretty in them elevated my eyes in such a wonderful way! Amped up the eye look and made my face stand out with the mask on. Made me so happy! This set lasted me a good six months I did not put them on every day just 3 times a week thinking would help to not hurt my natural lashes. Do I recommend them? Yes and no you see after the six months that I noticed they had lost the sticking power to the magnetic liner I knew I loved them and that I wanted to continue to use magnetic lashes but wanted something of better quality even if I had to pay more.
After doing a good search online of the best-reviewed possible option out there I found this website called Glamnetic, the site looked nice had really good reviews so I decided to give it a try and one year later I can honestly tell you I love this brand! Their quality is amazing, they are re-usable and each pair last at least six months, they do cost more usually $25 per pair but it’s worth it. What do I love the most? well I love everything that this brand offers but what I love the most is that these lashes look very natural, people that see me tell me they look natural, some even believe they are my lashes haha. they are safe for my natural lashes I wear them every day! I looked online and it’s said that one should not wear fake eyelashes that you apply with lash glue every day it will damage the natural lashes but the magnetic ones all opinions concur that is safe to wear every day so there you go an extra plus!
They offer a big variety for all eye shapes and they offer lashes from small and natural to big and glam lashes, I have all the sizes! They are so easy to apply plus come with anchors these are tiny little pieces of lashes that you put under your natural lash to like to sandwich your lash and the fake one and provides extra support in case they come a bit loose you won’t even notice because of these anchors. Another plus to these anchors is that you can use them to put the fake eyelashes with no magnetic liner! A great choice for people that don’t like to use eyeliners since they also have magnets that connect to the magnetic lash.
I love they offer not only black eyeliner but also colorful ones so you can play with your look, they offer also press-on nails, eyelash curler which is my favorite curler, make-up remover cotton pads these are amazing you don’t need chemical make up remover just water! Oh my gosh😱, I almost forgot to mention They also offer colored lashes! Like purple, bright pink for a bold statement, brown too for a more natural vibe. And other things there that are useful. I leave below the link to their website and a small video of their lashes I invite you to check them out who knows it could your next favorite thing! So in the end, I recommend the 5 pair set from Arishine to start to get used to and comfortable with magnetic lashes, and of course for that price they are great but for quality alone in every sense glamnetic is the way to go.
Here are two photos of me one not wearing my magnetic lashes, the second one wearing them so you can see the big difference they make in an eye look.
This is the final look. The power of makeup huh! Haha, the lashes alone give me a little extra and elevate the look even more!
For the beauties out there that don’t want to wear fake eyelashes well, I would tell you to try the magnetic option give them a chance 🙏 but if not then no worries, I got you!
I’m sure this happens to all my clueless beauties, that no matter what cannot achieve that lengthy full of volume lash with Mascara! I tried many Mascaras and my lashes looked the same lifeless this is frustrating! Feels like a waste of money!
Well, there is a fix for this! I found this you tuber, she is amazing! She explains how to make your natural lashes work for you to the fullest, her name is Jacklyn hill, she is popular on youtube, has her line of makeup, and has a very nice personality.
In her video, she explains that contrary to the commercials we see one Mascara cannot do it all, that one needs at least three to achieve a nice result, She also recommends curling before mascara, how to properly curl them and curl again after applying Mascara. She gives the Mascara products she loves, the curler she uses, I bought them all, haha nowadays I change it up a bit when I decide to not put fake eyelashes. One thing important to note is that even if you put on your fake lashes you still need to curl your lashes to give the fake eyelashes something to rest on and made them look to their fullest potential. I also love her tip of putting eyeliner in the upper waterline not only to make the lashes fuller as she says but also to blend the lashes or hide the fake eyelashes with your natural eyelashes it gives that natural eye look, also by pressing them using the lash applicator your natural lashes with the magnetic ones helps in the seamless blending process.
Now if you only want to use one Mascara then I recommend a Fiber Mascara they work well and are easy to remove but they don’t beat using the 3 Mascara method in my opinion, however, is good to have one fiber mascara in your beauty collection. These types of Mascaras add fiber to your natural lashes and provide length this way.
I leave you here her video about this I strongly recommend you watch it..it does work for the first time after trying her techniques I could see for the first time my natural lashes alive! all lengthy and full my mind was blown to the point when back from work and started to remove my makeup was trying to remove my lashes! Haha for a couple of times I confused them with fake eyelashes, imagine! Nowadays I still prefer my fake magnetic lashes. The natural mascara method is amazing but first, it takes a bit of time of your beauty routine since you need to do a few steps to achieve them to work for you to the fullest, the magnetic lashes take much less time and second I love way more how my eyes look with the magnetic lashes I don’t know is how extra curled they are how the styles are too like full to wispy they have that extra oomph.
Here is the list of products I use when I only apply Mascara these are great highly recommended.
- Glamnetic eyelash curler. I love it because is soft to press and easy to use.
- Wu-Minglu heated eyelash curler. I wanted to mention this product this one is good to curl your lashes when you apply for example glitter flakes and don’t want to mess it up by the curler removing a chunk of it this is a good choice, any brand will do this was the best-reviewed I could find in Amazon when I bought it. A good tool to add to your beauty collection
- Blinc black lash primer. Provides a base that lifts them and makes them full with volume has vitamins and nutrients and makes your lashes black, especially when you have fallen eyeshadow on them like white or fallen glitter good prepping prior Mascara.
- Fenty beauty Mascara full frontal
- YSL the Shock
- F#ck proof Mascara from Jeffree star cosmetics. This one is really good to combine with your Mascaras. Pardon the name haha Jeffree Star comes out with peculiar funniest names! However many brands do use peculiar words for the products so nothing out of the ordinary.
- We make up more volume Mascara now this one is amazing for the lower lash it defines it and makes them look so good separated and long I love this mascara gives the eye look a nice extra touch.
- Milk Kush Mascara is a great fiber Mascara
- Last from Glamnetic I recommend all haha I love their styles, recently they came out with hello kitty lashes oh gosh so cute! Their magnetic liners are fabulous I love they offer a choice of colors like Purple! For example, so you can play with them in a colorful look Even though they are a bit pricey they are worth it if you care for quality.
Here is a look not putting on fake eyelashes, using the 3 Mascara method. My natural lashes are alive! 🙊🙉
