So, I’m gonna be honest by admitting to you guys that this look is a bit old (four months old to be exact). But with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I figured there was no better time to post this look than now. I mean, loosely curled ruby red hair with a lacey white dress? It just screams Valentine’s Day, no? Okay, maybe I’m just starting to associate anything red-and-white with Valentine’s Day. =P

But I digress.

La di doo. Oh, look – I’m a bear.

Lashes do amazing things for my face and they can do the same for you, too. I actually used three pairs of eyelashes to achieve this look: two different lashes on the top, and a pair of under/bottom/lower lashes on the bottom. Surprising how you can wear so many lashes and yet look so natural.

I’ve had my eye on the M519 lashes for a while since I really wanted to give myself that nice cartoon-y look that gyaru girls have. I don’t think I’ll ever wear this style alone since my natural lashes kinda suck and honestly, I think it was made to be layered over other lashes anyway. So, to give myself some much-needed volume and length, I used a pair of #109 Black lashes.

To round out the look, I used #133 Black lashes (my favorite under lashes!!) on the bottom. If you notice, I placed it below my actual lash line to create the illusion of rounder and more doe-like eyes. Pretty cool, huh? 😉

I can’t wait to wear the M519 lashes again! I love that it’s just a bunch of really clean spikes instead of more volume all around. Makes layering lashes so much more fun! XD

No lies. All truth. Now get yourself over to that post.

 

Now that I got that off my chest….

You don’t need to spend tons of money to get great quality lashes, and you definitely don’t need to settle for those disgusting 10-lashes-in-a-box-for-just-a-dollar lashes, either. (I absolutely HATE those things. Hate ‘em with a passion. Why they sell that junk for human use is beyond me. Those things are made for department store mannequins, dang it!)

Ebay specializes in fake eyelashes for “people” like me .

If you’ve been itching to get yourself some “high-end” MAC lashes but were wary about dropping $16 for a pair, look no further. (Hint: www.FalseEyelashesSite.com)

Under Lashes for Newbies

Wanna know a secret? I never posted anything on under/bottom/lower false lashes before because most of them are too long for me to wear on my lower lash line. With the exception of #133 and #529 under lashes – both of them about half the length of our other under lashes – I always wore under lashes as top lashes.

Until now.

Elegant Lashes natural looking under / bottom / lower false eyelashes
Yay for new experiences! I’m taking baby steps here, so I wore #049 under lashes in brown (always great for first-timers). Kim Kardashian can get away with dark and dramatic lower eyelashes, but I know my limits, and some faces (like mine) aren’t meant for super long or dark lower lashes. That said…

What is the best choice for those just starting out with under lashes?

Hands down, brown lashes are ALWAYS the best choice for beginners or those just starting to experiment with any kind of false eyelashes. Now, I’m no newbie to falsies, but I certainly am very new to full-strip under lashes, so of course I went for brown under lashes.

Elegant Lashes 049 Brown under bottom lower False Eyelashes

Say hello to Elegant Lashes #049 Brown. It’s been in the Elegant Lashes® family since the beginning of time and is a consistent strong-seller, which is in itself a testimony to its versatility, allure, and time-tested beauty.

So out of the 21 different under lashes I could’ve have chosen, why did I pick #049 Brown?

Honestly, … because that’s what everyone else gets. I figured there must be a reason why this is one of our staple sellers. I think people favor this because it has an overall very classic and unoffensive(?) shape and length that makes it work well both as an under lash and an upper lash. The thin pieces of hair (100% natural human hair, of course!) make it ideal for use as under lashes while the length makes it ideal for wear as a natural and virtually undetectable upper lash.

What do you think of my hairy eyes? X) This whole “bottom false eyelash” thing is a very new and interesting experience for me, but with the brown under lashes, I think I could get used to this! I’ve worn #049 Brown as upper lashes, but like I said, this is the first time wearing a longer under lash for its intended purpose, and I honestly don’t think it looks that bad! Of course, they’re too long to be my natural bottom lashes, especially for a person of my ethnicity, but they don’t look too garish to me. (Tell me if they do look garish to you, though! I want your honesty. ;))

Better picture of the under lashes. Don’t they look so nice and perfectly separated? I really, really like these! 😀 And I love the subtle and understated brown color. Blends nicely with the skin so the bottom lashes look soft, not scary. Yay brown under lashes!

 

I wanted to focus on my lower lashes for this post, so I downplayed my upper lashes with a sparse false eyelash in relatively the same shape as the #049 Brown under lash. But if you like the sparse and natural look of the lashes I wore on top, here’s what they look like. This particular style is Elegant Lashes #103 Brown:

Wow, look at that. How interesting. I honestly never even paid attention to this style before, but someone got a whole bunch of these and I got so darn curious I had to check it out. Pretty nice, I say!

 

Back to the under lashes!

 

Application Tip:

One thing I noticed with under lashes – if you’re going to use the entire strip, apply it close to the inner corner of your eyes, brown false eyelashes on top and bottom_Elegant Lashes #049 Brown False under eyelashesespecially if the under lash is on the longer side (extending beyond your natural lower lash length). I’m not saying to go so far in as to stab yourself in the tear duct, but I usually place my upper lashes towards the outer corner of my eye to elongate it, and this technique didn’t look so hot with the under lash. It looks funny having a big gaping empty space near the inner corner suddenly bursting into a row of long bottom lashes. So if you want your entire lower lash line to be enhanced with false lashes… apply the false lashes along your entire lower lash line.

Of course, if you’re only applying under lashes to the outer corners of your eyes like I did here and Bonnie did here, you can disregard that whole paragraph above.

Hmm, the more I look at these photos, the more I like the way these brown under lashes look. I like that they’re light in color so it’s not too obvious that I’m wearing under lashes. It makes you do a double-take because there’s something there enhancing the eyes but you can’t quite put your finger on what it might be….

 

So now that you’ve followed me to the conclusion of my first experience with under lashes, here are the major takeaway points (if you didn’t catch them already):

  • If you’re new at the whole bottom false eyelash thing (correct term is under lash, by the way), or are just unfamiliar with false eyelashes in general, STICK WITH BROWN!! Lots of people give up on under lashes because they get them in black, which looks very harsh and dramatic on most women. Try brown lashes (we have the most brown lashes of any false eyelash brand, so we’re kind of a good place to start. *ahem*) and you’ll find the under lashes don’t look so garish or difficult to wear.
    • Even if the under lash is long, the brown color will blend easily with your skin so the lashes don’t stand out so much. You’ll feel less self-conscious about your under lashes screaming for attention.
  • If you’ve bought a pair of under lashes that were too long for you, DON’T throw them away!! I never even thought of using under lashes on my lower lashes until today. If your false eyelashes are too long for use as under lashes, simply flip them over and use them as upper lashes. I do it all the time, and no one’s arrested me for my crime!
  • Unless you’re cutting up your under lashes and placing them only on the outer corners of your eyes, apply your under lash along the entire lower lash line. It’ll look very weird to have a bald gap in the inner corner and then a sudden shock of long, hairy under lashes sprouting out of nowhere.

 

I hope this was helpful in some way!

I Hate That I Love These Brown Eyelashes

Dang it. I was looking forward to experimenting with at least 10 different styles of brown lashes until I came across my favorite one. That day came too soon, because I think I’ve already found The One. *confused emotions of disappointment and joy*

natural brown false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes 46 Brown

I’m wearing Elegant Lashes #046 Brown False Eyelashes in the photo above, and I must confess: I am hopelessly in love with these. I really wish I didn’t like them so much, because now I will be biased and compare every other brown eyelash to #046 Brown, but man…. These #046 lashes are really, REALLY something.

natural brown false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes 46 Brown

I love everything about the #046 lashes – the shape, the length, the density, the lash band, and of course, the final effect it gives to the eyes. I am a huge fan of Elegant Lashes #046 Black, which I wore to a friend’s wedding and on many different occasions after that. Each time I remember thinking, “Man, I love these. They’re so freaking perfect. I hope I don’t get addicted to them.” Well, I went out and tried the brown version, and … shucks, I’m addicted. (-_-)

natural brown false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes 46 Brown

But how can you not fall in love with a product that makes you look like you were born with something you weren’t? I love what Elegant Lashes #46 Brown does for my eyes. I wore them this past Sunday for Easter Service, and they were so perfect and appropriate – pretty but understated (don’t wanna offend any grandmas visiting at church! Haha). What did I do to deserve wearing something as wonderful as this pair of brown eyelashes? Oh. I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to fuss with annoying mascara. Haha! Good things come when you least expect it, I guess. I LOVE these brown lashes!

natural looking brown false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes 46 Brown

And look at that. Me likey. Because this style has black hairs mixed in with the brown, it blends more easily with your own lashes for an effortlessly beautiful, natural look. Nobody will know you’re wearing falsies! 😀 But beware – girls might hate on you for being born with naturally luscious lashes. Tsk tsk…. That is the beautiful secret of brown false eyelashes. X)
Oh, forgot to post a picture of the lashes in their packaging. Here you go!

natural brown false eyelashes_Elegant Lashes 46 Brown in packagingPretty!!!!!!

Ok, I have done enough raving for now. The #046 lashes get too much love from me (even though it is rightly deserved). I’ll end this post with an irrelevant photo of me holding a tiny little bunny. Because it was Easter a few days ago. But mostly because I am wearing Elegant Lashes #046 Brown and I think the pic is kinda funny. X)

I hope you give the #046 lashes a try! They are my personal recommendation for medium-size eyes (whatever that means… try the brown version if you’re new to falsies) and are also great for elongating your eye shape to create the illusion of larger eyes.

The Perfect Springtime False Eyelashes (They’re Brown!)

Spring is finally here and I’m welcoming the warm weather by wearing three different brown false eyelashes on my eyes!

Just kidding, I’m only doing that for the sake of convenience. (As you can tell, I’ll be showing off three different lash styles in today’s post.) But seriously. Brown false eyelashes are the perfect way to pretty up for spring because of how soft and subtle they are.

brown false eyelashes are ideal for red hair
Brown lashes are all the rage in Japan these days and it’s not that hard to see why. (In case you haven’t got a clue, read why brown lashes are so dandy here.) Now let’s see those beauties in action!

thick dramatic brown false eyelashes

Oh yes, you know you like that velvety softness. I’m wearing Elegant Lashes #079 Brown on top and Elegant Lashes #602 Brown on the bottom. Honestly, I could never wear #079 Black no matter how much I wanted to because it’s just too big, bold, and … scary (for me). But that’s obviously not the case with the brown version.

Like I said in the Brown Lashes blog post, a brown version of the same eyelash will look totally different from the black version. Because of the lighter color, you can pull off longer, more dramatic styles without looking like a crazy person. (If you’re new to false lashes, I highly recommend starting off with brown lashes first – especially if your first pair of falsies are very thick and/or long ones.)

thick brown false eyelashes

Can you imagine what these lashes would look like in black? If you can’t, let’s just say it’ll look a whole lot thicker and longer than it already does. No wonder I’m so intimidated by them! For those who can pull off the bolder black version, I commend you! As for myself, I’ll just stick to the brown version. It matches better with red hair anyway (which is also discussed in the Brown Lashes blog post!). XD

On to the next style I’m wearing …

Say hello to subtle spikes! I’m wearing Elegant Lashes #073 Brown on top and Elegant Lashes #602 Brown on the bottom (again).

That’s my subtle attempt at covering up my other eye. X)

Spiky lashes are great for all eye shapes. I’m loving this style because it’s not too dense, it works well with the under lash I’m wearing, and the spikes, although long, are not intimidating in any way.
