So, I've never tried False Lashes, and I've been in the mood to try them out! What drugstore brand would you recommend, and which lash gluee?
Both Ardell and Andrea make starter kits - try them! They're pretty good for beginners, and can be found at Walgreen's, CVS and Sally's.
I'm with Kimberly, Ardell are fab. In my opinion a good way to ease into getting used to putting them on is getting the half-lashes for the outer corners. They add a nice flirty wing and depth to your corners and since they are half (or less) the length of a full set, you get good practice. After that work up to a full set and you'll be a pro already. Have fun! <3
Ardell is a good drugstore brand. If you can find Red Cherry, I LOVE them! Definitely try Duo when it comes to lash glue. I think everyone I've come across carries Duo. That's my favorite ;)
I actually did a blog post forever ago on falsies and my personal technique: http://makeupchicliterarygeek.blogs...
I agree with Niki, flares (outer corner-only) lashes can be a great way to start because they're very easy to apply. Full falsies can be a bit tricky at first, but once you practice it's not so bad ;)

Salon Perfect, Andrea, Ardell (they're all pretty much the same thing). I only use Duo Lash Adhesive and in Dark Tone.
Ardell's work very well and most of them are good transition lashes for people who haven't tried because they are so light. I prefer red cherries but those are pretty much no name lashes and go by other names like Miss Adoro, etc.
call me cheap, but I am practicing a lot and to be hones I got ebay lashes for like 3 dollars and got a nice deal, only practice though not for aother people, just to get hang of applying them :D
for glue I use duo eyelash glue.
I've used Red Cherry, but most of the time I really like just looking on ebay and finding lashes. For glue, DUO irritates my eyes really badly, so I mostly use Japanese eyelash glues which are harder to find but stay much longer and don't irritate at all.
I am new to falsies, the first time i tried it came sooo good (practise session)
then when i was all set to go for a party 2 days later, i messed up my entire make up! have not tried since but would love too!
looking for tutotrial videos, and half lashes.. does ardell sell those?
For false lashes, I really think Ardell is a good place to start. The band is flexible but not flimsy, the array of styles to chose from is large. I use the Duo lash glue and I use the one that dries clear. :-)
@ Leslie - do you have any Japanese eyelash glues that you would recommend specifically?
@Leslie, I'm with Mandy! I'd love to hear your input on eyelash glues, too! My sister lives in Japan and I already have her snatching up Dolly Wink Lashes for me (love, love!), but I'd love to hear about any lash glue you've had good experiences with!

Ardell is a good place to start and I love Red Cherry lashes as well. You can find them pretty cheap online if they aren't sold anywhere near you. <3 Duo Lash Glue!
If you can find a beauty supply store that sells Red Cherry lashes or Miss Adoros, I'd go for those. For people who aren't used to wearing lashes, you want to make sure that the lash band is thin. The thicker it is, the more uncomfortable it will be for you. I agree with many here and say that Ardell lashes are great as well. As for lash glue, if you have a japanese market, I'd go for one of those because they really are amazing.

@antonio im cheap as well so when i first started learning how to apply strip lashes i bought E.L.F lashes in natural and dramatic for $1 per pack. i use duo lash adhesive. now i love the selection with ardell. i havent worn them but i use them for my clients going on prom.

Check out my post on lashes!

I'm all about the lashes from taiwan or japan that have 10 pairs - they look real, flirty and feathery
Absolute favourite is Ardell's 105 - dramatic; thick and full + DUO glue
I've never tried E.L.F. products (because I live in Canada), but I bet if I did, i would love 'em more

I would recommend Ardell, Andrea Modlash or Red Cherry lashes....
Avoid the ebay lashes they are harder to apply and they look very fake.

@ Danielle C.
Yeah for practicing and waste them they were great, I mean 3 dollars and I got like 30 pairs, now I really like ardell, but I really do like asian fake lashes, they are really nice, I got them on my asian market and they are the bomb :p lol
no brand though (+.+)
i would find a local beauty supply (not sally's), some place typically in a predominantly black area....where the sell hair weaves in anundance and any and all hair products you could buy. the usually set lashes fairly cheap ( i buy mine for about 1.50) that way u can buy tons at once without going broke. especially it being your first time. theyre just as good as drugstore brands. also research online for them, there are some great package deals for bundles of them
I use elf lashes. The natural ones. They work great
