What kind of lashes should I get? Good question! There are lots of different kinds to choose from. I group lashes into a few different categories and each one has their own pros and cons:
Natural Lashes: You can see from comparing these lashes with others that they are much more delicate looking. These are lashes that are going to give you a boost in length and thickness, but aren't going to go overboard. I love wearing these for daytime outings when I want a natural look and lashes that are long and light.
Full Lashes: These lashes are obviously much thicker than the natural lashes. While these lashes may look too heavy for everyday wear, they are actually great for photos (especially if the photos are going to be taken from a bit further away). It's kind of the same principle as theatre makeup—the further away people are from you, the bolder the stage makeup has to be in order to look right. If you were doing full-body photos, these lashes would stand out much more than the natural lashes would at a distance. These lashes also have a more blunt and even shape to the tips of the lashes which give them a vintage Mod look as well.
Long & Short Lashes: This category of lashes has a bold pattern of longer and shorter lashes. Some may contain criss-crossed lashes, some may be staight, but the pronounced difference in tip length is their biggest feature. I like to use these if I am going on a date where I want a thicker, more dramatic look.
What glue should I use? A good glue makes a huge difference. I mean, you aren't going to be very happy with your false lash experience if they keep falling off, right? My favorite glue is Duo eyelash adhesive. You'll definitely want to follow the instructions and let the glue set on the false lashes for about 30 seconds before attaching the lash to your lid—I found that tip helped a lot. Make sure to always, always, alwayskeep a spare tube of adhesive, tweezers, and some spare lashes in your makeup bag when you wear falsies. You definitely don't want to be stuck without a fix-it kit if something doesn't stick right the first time
Can I reuse my lashes? Not all lashes are reusable. The cheaper brand always fall apart after a night out. Nu lashes are quality lashes and made to last. If you don't use mascara when you wear your nu lashes, you can reuse them several times. Just use tweezers to pull the dried lash glue from the lashes after you remove them and store them in their original case until you want to use them again.
