Hi there fellow Clueless Fashionistas!

I’ve been on a bit of an unplanned hiatus but I’m back now. As you can see, I’ve made some updates to the website. Let me know your thoughts. I’m working on making the site look cleaner and more streamlined. Ok, now back to the trends.

I don’t have long eye lashes or thick eye brows. As a kid, I would see people with long, thick lashes and feel envious. I’m not a hairy person (which is helpful when it comes to shaving my legs, but I digress) and I knew that I would never possess those lovely lashes. However, as an adult, I discovered fake lashes (quite some time after models and drag queens but better late than never). I put some on last year at Halloween. If you want to see the picture, visit my post, Halloween Follow Up.

Well it took some getting used to, but once I did, I relished in finally being able to enjoy thick, long eye lashes. Here are some ways to delve into this trend.

1. Wear them as a part of an outfit or costume. Halloween is coming up. If you take your new, long lashes out for a spin to a Halloween party, you won’t feel so odd wearing them.
2. Wear some of the shorter, more conservative lashes. You don’t have to go all out with the long, vampy lashes right away. Ease into them by getting some of the short ones first. If you go to Walmart or Target, check their makeup section, you should find some lashes in various lengths. Go for the shorties.
3. Wear them around the house. Choose a day when you have no intention of going out. Put on the lashes and wear them all day. By the end of the day, you should be at least slightly more used to them.

I hope these tips help. If you need more help, check out this post called Eyelashes! It has a tutorial on how to apply false lashes. If you take any pictures with your new lashes, please share them with me. I’d love to feature you rockin your lashes on Clueless Fashionista.
