There I was in the beauty shop gazing at those amazing fake eyelashes not knowing whether to buy them or not. I knew that applying eyelashes for the very first time required certain knowledge I did not possess, and even though I wanted to look ravishing for the New Years' Eve party, I was afraid that my clumsiness in the domain would eventually turn me into a circus clown.
Luckily, the young shop assistant realized what my inner torment was and gave me a few tips on applying eyelashes, which I would like to share with other make-up dilettantes.
There are make-up artists who claim that putting on eyelashes during day-time is a proof of bad taste, while others state that eyelashes can be applied in any circumstances, as long as you use the proper ones. Personally, I favor the latter. I feel and work better when I have a nice, modern appearance. Thus, the first and most important tip is to decide what kind of look you want, and when and where are you going to wear your make-up. When applying eyelashes for an evening out in a club, you should chose longer and thinker eyelashes, and if they have a special design or shape, it is all for the better. On the other hand, you need medium or below medium length eyelashes when wearing eyelashes for a day in the office, a business meeting and even for an afternoon cocktail.
