The Rebirth of Lashes

False eyelashes were created in 1916 by a silent film director. By 1920, silver screen divas like Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, and Bette Davis made long, thick eyelashes a fashion trend. Now lashes are back and women everywhere are doing whatever they can to obtain the sexy look of full, black lashes. There are so many ways to improve the look of your lashes. Some expensive, some not so expensive. Now there are many ways to make your lashes more appealing.

Strip Lashes
These are the most used form of lash enhancements. Strip lashes are just what their name sounds like-synthetic lashes on a strip. These lashes come in all styles, lengths, and colors. They can be worn continuously or removed and reapplied daily. Strip lashes are the easiest to use for self application.

Individual Lashes
This type of lash is applied one at a time to your natural lash line. The application is a little more challenging than with strip lashes; however, individual lashes to provide a more authentic look. They can be worn for longer periods than strips. This is good if you're paying to get them done (feels like your getting your money's worth).
Both strips and individuals can be applied with adhesive. My preferred brand is Duo, a surgical adhesive that is sold online and at the M.A.C counter in Macy's. The artist there even apply lashes as part of their make-up services. Many salons, spas, and even mall kiosk provide lash application services. A professional make-up artist would be my recommendation simply because we'll complete your look by giving you a cleaner, more polished appearance with your new lashes. Overall lashes give you a sexy new look without a lot of hassle and won't break the bank to do it.
