All I want for my birthday is Bradley Cooper. Is that too much to ask? Gawd, that scruffy look - I just can't.
I think someone agrees.
One thing that makes me feel a little extra sassy, especially on my birthday, are false eyelashes! Here are my top faves.
Gypsy Lashes #906: Definitely my favorite of all favorites. Anytime I wear these, I just feel so glamorous. I found mine on eBay for super cheap and keep some extra in stock!
Ardell Wispies - Black: Considering the price, they are seriously such a good quality. I got mine on Amazon and haven't looked back since. They are my tried and true!
Sephora - Showstopper: These are my least favorite out of the other two lashes, but I still like them a lot. These are a little more fierce looking and I would probably only reach for these if I was dressing up for an occasion such as Halloween.
Duo Eyelash Adhesive - Dark: My go-to eyelash adhesive. I chose the dark color and definitely prefer it over the clear drying adhesive. Sephora, Mac, HEB, Walgreens, etc, sells this brand. It's obviously good stuff.
If you can't tell, I'm into really "wispie" looking lashes. I think they look the most natural, but with a hint of "yes, I'm wearing fake lashes." If you've never worn fake eyelashes before, here are my recommendations:
- Start with a thin/lightweight pair until you're a little more used to them.
- Apply the lashes before applying eyeliner, but after applying mascara.
- Don't apply mascara to the lashes after you've put them on their eyelid to ensure they last longer.
- Reuse your eyelashes! I wear mine several times per pair.
All this fake eyelash and birthday talk has got me really thinking how blessed I am. At the end of the day, nothing is more important than my faith, family, and friends (yep, that includes y'all!). I am thankful for all three of those things and more!
