For as long as I can remember I’ve fancied those long fluttery lashes, all thanks to those romantic comedies where the actress pats her eyelashes and the actor instantly falls head over heels for her. When I think about it now, it’s all quite stupid but oh-those long lashes. They sure aren’t! Fast forward 10 years and I am still not over them. I love how falsies can instantly transform your whole look and highlight your eyes. Now, yes they are gorgeous and a complete savoir in times of need but it’s no secret that walking on the water might be easier than applying them ever morning, especially if you are a beginner. I sometimes feel they sense fear and urgency, just like liquid eyeliners because in times of hurry they generally take an extra 10 minutes o settle. Hence, all the drama!
Anyway, that being said, somebody from the cosmetic industry finally decided to something about this constant battle and came up with the idea of magnetic lashes. A shortcut to getting those long lashes without spending a sh*t load of money and damaging your natural lashes.
Many renowned cosmetic brands have developed magnetic lashes using micro-magnetic technology that allows the false lashes to lock onto your natural lashes. all thanks to the small magnetic chips attached at the bottom of each lash. It gives almost exactly the same or in some cases even better results than the traditional false lashes. Get that- WITHOUT THE GLUE! The process begins with putting on lashes on the one eye as close as possible to your natural lashes, after that you are to pick the bottom lash and place it right under the first one. The magnets at both the ends click and the lashes are secured. Now, it might sound all simple, but it takes a few goes before you finally get it right. But in the end it is worth all the fuss.
Now, there are many brands offering these magical magnetic eyelashes and taking into account how expensive make-up these days is, trying on every day brand is next to impossible. So, here’s a quick guide to the best ones out there. We hope it helps.
