Applying false eyelashes is a super quick task once you know how to, click here to view our blog page on how to apply false eyelashes like a pro. Don’t forget to use lash tools such as an eyelash applicator and eyelash curler as this will really step up your lash game! A top tip from the Lash Envy Beauty team is, never, ever neglect the mascara! Applying mascara prior to putting on your falsies will give the lash adhesive something to give onto. It will also ensure your natural and false eyelashes blend together seamlessly. For a big doe-eyed look, we suggest full lashes or voluminous lashes which are not flared (AKA cat eye lashes). These styles of lashes will really open up those beautiful eyes of yours making them bigger than before. The Lash Envy Beauty Luxury 3D Mink and Faux Mink (Vegan) lash range have a 3D effect which opens up the eye and the strip lashes look like real eyelashes rather than shiny cheap synthetic lashes that look completely unrealistic.

Try a concealer that is lighter than your skin tone, this will give your under eyes a more brightened look. Still not quite done the trick? Why not try some correcting concealer?  Don’t be mistrustful of the green and purple correctors, they can balance dark circles well and successfully brighten up the under eye area.
