Searching online, I noticed many false eyelashes are over the top. While a very pretty concept, I don't want to wear glitter and stars on my lashes. I asked makeup artist Beke Beau to share a few of her favorite false lashes for real women. I love her breakdown and wanted to share below.
Ardell 110 - my go-to lash that suits almost everyone on earth and are what I call my "training" strip lashes for the newbies.
Red Cherry 747S - these lashes come in four lengths, but the "S" is another standard lash that works on most. A bit fuller and more curly than the 110.
Ardell Fairies - a long, spiky lash I use for more believable drama - this one's good for deep-set eyes.
Red Cherry 01 - the most dramatic of the "natural" lashes.
Ardell 116 - another long lash that's not too thick. It has a lot of swoop on the outer corners.
Red Cherry 218 - I used a lot of these when I did a shoot for a strip club. Enough said, but they're not ridiculous. (ha! why I love Beke.)
Ardell Accent 301 - a half lash that works one women with thick but short lashes. Fairly easy to apply because of the shorter length.
Red Cherry or Ardell Individual Lashes in Short Flair Black - once you get the hang of applying these, it's easy to pop a few on. I don't necessarily concentrate at the outer corners but tend to space them evenly across the lash line for more length and fullness.
(let the glue set for about 30 seconds before placing them. At the end of the party, gently peel them off after cleansing the face. Remove whatever glue might be left on the lash line with something emollient like baby or jojoba oil.)
1) red cherry 01, 2) red cherry 218, 3) red cherry 747s, 4) red cherry short flairs.
