Tip for the Day: Why False Lashes are Needed on Any "Photograph" Day!

Happy month of May!!!

It is cute how  most of my clients would dismiss the idea of wearing falsies for the reason of: "It's not my wedding day!" 

Well, excuse you lovelies!  Wedding day or not, if you know you will have your photos taken, I strongly recommend you to at least, give false lashes a chance!  It makes a HUGE difference to your overall look!

I can prove it to you :)

Photo Below: Anonymous client who wants very light eye makeup (as she needs to carry her baby around).  Check how her "after false lashes" shot made her eyes look more alive and awake!



Of course, the quality of false lashes have to be really good!  Really good doesn't have to equate to really expensive!

Here are some of the brands I highly recommend ---

ES Brands by KKCenterHK


I love it that ES Brand recently came up with box of 5 pairs of different styles eyelashes for USD15.44 (approx Php664.00 + shipping not included).  I like taking these with me especially if I'm meeting the client for the first time and I wouldn't know her eye shape and makeup preference! 


I am also finding myself stocking on another favorite from ES Brand, the ES A599 lashes!  These also comes in 5 pairs!  I am liking this brand from KKCenterHK because its handmade, the stems are very thin and easy to maneuver at the same time, the lash hairs are super soft and lightweight!

ES A599 costs USD15.12 (approx Php650.00 + shipping not included) and I used this on the model's eyes above!  Feedback from clients are always positive and they would even keep the lashes for future use!


To those who are uncomfortable in terms of online shopping, you can easily order Flutter Eyelashes at Beauty & Minerals.  Quality are the same but the lashes they have are more dramatic ones!  


Available in - Drama Queen, Purr, Feisty and Majestic
A box of 10 pairs costs Php350.00 - 400.00 (approx $8.00-$9.30)



So, are you the type who would wear false lashes on special events or occasions?
If not, why?
Scared to apply false lashes on your own?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  2. I would love to try false lashes. My mom bought me one last year from nichido around 300 / pair. But I'm afraid to use it, my eyes might look fake plus the fact that I'm not an expert to wear it. But thanks for your tutorial, I think I'll try my false lashes this weekend :D

    1. Goodluck, you can use the inexpensive ones for trial then once you're comfortable, then you can upgrade to a li'l pricier one that looks more natural :D

  4. I use to overlook the necessity of falsies as well, but after watching so many tutorials on the internet, i felt it's high time to give it a try. After that I was hooked. I now have my own stock of different styles! and basically my make up won't be completer w/o it.

  6. I like using falsies! I find it easier to clean up falsies than removing mascara :) a good lash glue also helps! Even if I use cheap falsies sometimes, as long as I'm using a trusty lash glue, all goes well. Thanks for sharing other options on where to find cheap ones! :))

  16. which brand of falsies would you recommend for monolids? i've tried a lot of brands but all of them doesn't look natural. even the etude house natural lashes seems too long for me - almost touching my brow.

    1. You can trim them Karen if you find most of them are too long for you! I know how you feel, even the most "natural" lashes written on box could be a bit too "fake" to some especially for girls with small eyes. Have you tried the ones from Landmark? They are shorter and more natural.
