I love makeup whether it’s browsing around Ulta Beauty, Sephora or online. And it’s even more fun to play around with it at home after watching makeup tutorials.
But lately I wonder if I’m behind the times. I’ve always loved to try different looks, but I’ve never considered using dramatic looks outside the confines of a private girls party or at home, because I think I’d look like a fool.
Perhaps I should accept that I’m pretty low maintenance. I prefer to spend my time doing things and going places than primping for two hours. Although when I’m feeling really into it, I do put some makeup on for a natural clean look (I’ve mastered it in less than 1 minute), I still take the easy route unless it’s a formal event.
The other day I thought that I’d give false lashes a try. I occasionally wear black mascara and I thought this would save me from applying it. When I looked at the description “100% human hair” I was beyond grossed out and stuck it back on the shelf.
I started wondering if the hair was made from the scraps after someone’s haircut, or the hair from the temple in India that is used for hair weaves? Or maybe there is a room full of women with long hair in a factory and they get paid to come in every day and get it cut for lashes?
Then there is the glue. What if you glue your eye shut?
Maybe I’m not cut out for it, but I do want to try synthetic false lashes for fun. Just don’t count on me going out in them, because what if they fall off in public?
Have any of you tried them?
