The Effects of Falsies

I never thought putting falsies to other people would be part of "my" make-up routine. But after several practice to other people and I've got a lot of "Chinese" friends, a lot of them are monolids so I am always challenged to do make-up on them that would show like they have lids :)

It takes a whole lot of practice and one sample would be Grace (yup the same Grace whom I did a major makeover to).

After her lids "kinda" showed up through make-up, I tested a falsies on her (excuse me for not curling her lashes, as this is just a trial, she's always freaked out with falsies or anything that has to do with eyes). I was amazed..like super A-Amazed with the result and the difference that I took a pix of it! :)






I know a lot of people don't use falsies..so do I!
But for special occasions, it really helps and can brighten up the whole look.
I love it on Grace! She loved it as well!
too bad she's on her pajamas and ready to go to bed...
She should have partied with her lovely falsies :)

Your askmewhats,
Nikki

  2. Falsies most certainly make a difference....

    .... and that's why I don't wear them unless there's a special occasion.

    I don't want to get used to looking like something I'm not! :P

  3. Oooh they are stunning. I wish I had lashes like that normally. My boyf has amazing lashes if i had them I would exploit them every single day!

    I have only recently been able to apply them properly :) but it makes such a difference esp to the Asian eye?

  5. me want falsies! :)

    i must agree that falsies are a dream. aileen, nessa and renren keeps me in awe how such a small object can make diff in your look. it seems you'll be one to really look out for. :) though i'm still scared to use falises (such big does eyes i have), afraid i'll look like a drag queen or a disfigured china doll. :)

    when i do get a time off, i will definitely visit you for a makeover!! :)

  6. Thanks Mafie.

    Liz, you are so righ, at times, falsies can make you look totally different :) That's why if I used a falsy on special occasion, i would use the uber soft and natural ones :)

    Row...i know what you mean....some guys have the best lashes and they don't know what women do to have the same! :)

    Moi, totally agree with you :D

    Shen, no way, drag queen look would probably be happ'nin if you're using those over exaggerating lashes, but before you come visit, let me know..i may share some good natural falsies i have and put them up to you! :) Don't worry, i'm very gentle, all my colleagues are "falsies virgin" and so far....they managed to pull the look :)

  9. The falsies really open up her eyes. Question? How many times can you use falsies before throwing them out?

  10. vi anne, same here!

    stylish mommy, i felt the same...guys really have better lashes :(

    Fabuless, you know what? When I was practicing on my friends' eyes before the photoshoot, i've used the lashes so many times and I would say, first, you really have to clean the glue, 2nd, you have to make sure not to pull the lashes as it tends to straighten and looks un-natural. So it depends...of course, if you put it on and see that it looks different on both sides, you have to throw it away :) mine would be max of 3x
