Fake eyelashes are the ticket if you want to make your eyes appear to impossibly big and dramatic. So that’s how they do it! I have always wondered why my eyelashes were so lacking while those fabulous beauties walked around with their amazing eyes. I was lucky if my eyeshadow would even still be in place once I got to wherever I was going.
Seriously! I have never been on e of those girls who always looks perfect. In fact, I never look perfect, even when I give it more than my usual half hearted try. I have friends who always look like they just stepped out of a photo shoot – all perfect hair and perfect makeup. I really don’t know how they do it. They are real people with real lives. They don’t have a host of people following them around with oder puffs and hairspray. It is a gift. They are genuine and kind.. You can’t help but love them and their fake eyelashes.
One of my friends has the most amazing skin, head to toe perfection. Nothing but even toned perfection. Or so I thought. One day she asked me to drop by her house. When she answered the door I was not greeted by my perfect looking friend, but by a real live freckle faced girl. Still gorgeous, yet shockingly different.
Until that point, it had never occurred to me that people used makeup on their bodies! It never occurred to me that makeup could provide such intense coverage that all traces of a freckle would be entirely invisible! Don’t get me wrong! I actually preferred my friend’s freckles. I loved her natural, glowing complexion. She, however, feels more beautiful with the makeup on, and that’s what matters.
I began looking more closely at how those beautiful girls always had perfect eye makeup. A big part of it is that they wear fake eyelashes. Who does that? Turns out, more people than you may think.
I stil don’t wear them, except on special occasions, such as a wedding, or prom, but I really do love the extra glam and the extra girly feeling they provide!
