Are you planning to wear false eyelashes for the day of your Quinceanera? It is true, that false eyelashes make your eyes look bigger and beautiful even without putting layers and layers of mascara on them.

However, there are certain things you should consider before applying false eyelashes.

False eyelashes can be a big hit or a total error depending on the application and the quality of them. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of using false eyelashes.

Pros:

False eyelashes can be used to accentuate your natural eyelashes. False eyelashes are a good alternative for those girls who have very short and thin lashes.

This type of lashes come in different lengths and different colors so you can select the most similar to yours.

Cut the strip of false eyelashes to a length similar to your natural lashes, place a small amount of glue on the lash line and press to create a rich look that will last all day.

With false eyelashes, you can create a bold and dared look. They are very versatile because you can use them on any occasion like a party, a date and of course for your Quinceanera!

If you want a more dramatic look for evening or night put false eyelashes across the line where your eyelashes grow. When gluing the whole lash strip this will give you the appearance of longer eyelashes.

False lashes are not as difficult to apply as you think but it requires some practice. If you are a beginner try on lashes that come in a single strip, these are best to start.

Some brands include an adhesive strip which makes the lashes easier to place just by pressing them on the eyelid.

Another advantage is that they are very economical so you can show off some beautiful eyes at a low cost.

Cons:

False eyelashes may be well…false. Bright colored eyelashes, metallics or jewelry are known for not looking real but even natural false eyelashes may look fake and shoddy.

If you have no idea about false lashes go to a professional for help. This way you can avoid lashes from peeling off or falling.

False eyelashes are a temporary solution to increase the length and thickness of your eyelashes but they are not an everyday solution to short and thin lashes.

Sleeping with false eyelashes or use them daily can cause eye infections due to bacteria that accumulates under the false lashes or between the glue and the eyelid.

Always remember to remove the lashes before going to bed and wipe your eyes with makeup remover to remove any impurity of your eyes.

Both, false eyelashes and glue contain chemicals that can cause any allergic reactions.

To check if the lashes will work on you make a test on the back of your hand before applying them on your eyes if the area becomes red, swollen or you get rash definitely, you can not use them in your eyes.

As with other cosmetics such as eyeliner or eye shadow you should never share your false eyelashes with anyone, not even your closest relatives as bacteria could pass from one to another.
