Celebs and Their Fake Eyelashes
Dear Beauty Queen: What brand of FALSE EYELASHES do the celebrities use, and where can I buy them? I like REVLON, and like using false lashes, but would like to upgrade the quality.
Beauty Queen: You may be surprised to know that many of the lush lashes you see on your favorite stars aren’t technically false eyelashes; they’re actually eyelash extensions. This process involves applying individual lash extensions to your own lashes in a salon or spa setting over a few hours, at a cost of about $300 or more. The advantage: They can last for two months or longer. The caution: Be sure to go to a reputable professional
since we’re talking about your eyes here.
But longer lashes don’t have to break the bank – or take an entire afternoon. False lashes have come a long way, and there’s a wide variety of high quality, natural looking lashes out there. The Japanese cosmetic company Shu Uemura makes a stunning array that can be found at select Nordstrom stores as well as shuuemura-usa.com. Make Up Forever‘s false eyelashes are another makeup artist favorite, and you can visit makeupforever.com to find a retailer near you.
