EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FALSE EYELASHES
We LOVE false eyelashes at Undercover Glamour. We love how they enhance your eyes and instantly give you a glamorous look, making you feel and look great. Strip lashes are so quick an easy to apply and in moments you will have fuller, longer lashes making you feel and look incredibly attractive. Long lashes are an universal symbol of beauty and they can make a woman’s eyes look wider and more open which has always been a sign of femininity. We love how long, fluttery lashes draw you to the eyes and connect with beauty and confidence.
Which false eyelashes do you recommend?
If you are looking for an everyday wear, or a casual day look with a subtle amount of definition to your natural lashes then we recommend a natural looking lash. To view our natural lashes select the "short" and "medium" length lashes in our search or search for "natural lashes". If you are looking for a really glamorous, party ready look then we suggest wearing fuller and longer lashes. Please view our "party lashes" in the search and you can also search for "long lashes". Our double lashes, which are our thickest and fullest lash are most popular with Drag Queens, and for those who want to achieve a really dramatic look. Whichever false eyelashes you choose they will all draw attention to your eyes, highlighting your beauty.
Which lashes are best for my Eye Shape?
We all have different types of eye shapes, so one style of lash that looks amazing on some, may not work for you. The key is to identify your eye shape to establish which style of lash will be best for you. For example, if you have round eyes, or upturned eyes or close-set eyes typically flared and wispy lashes work perfectly. Doll lashes (lashes that are longer in the middle) are great for hooded eyes, downturned eyes, and wide-set eyes. If you have almond shaped eyes, you will find most lashes will suit you. See our article 'Which lashes are best for my Eye Shape?' for more information on how to identify your eye shape and for a detailed recommendation on what lashes will be best for your eyes.
Which are your best false eyelashes?
Our best false eyelashes depend on what you are looking for and what style you like. Our most expensive lashes at the moment are Eylure's LUXE eyelashes as these give a natural "mink effect" look. Our most popular false eyelashes are Eylure's Texture no.117 and this style are one of Eylure's longest running lash. Our company director, Catherine loves wearing no.117 lashes. We would love to hear what your favourite fake lashes are? We also love it when you share your pictures with us, so please keep tagging us @undercoverglamour when wearing any products from us.
Why Eylure Eyelashes?
We love the Eylure brand as Eylure have a style for everyone, from beautiful natural false eyelashes to stand out, party lashes. We originally started with our own brand of eyelashes about 10 years ago, but found it really hard to manage and keep the quality high, and keep the styles on trend. We have since preferred selecting our favourite styles of fake eyelashes from Eylure, choosing the ones we love to wear, and also involving you in our the Eylure lash selection as Eylure have been successfully creating fake lashes for over 70 years they know how to design a great lash. We can also trust the eyelash glue from Eylure as they have a trusted team of professionals to test and make the products. We personally love Eylure eyelashes as we know they hold well, fit the eye well and are beautifully made.
Which are you best false eyelashes for weddings?
False eyelashes are great for brides to wear for their wedding day as they will really draw attention to the eyes, and beautiful long lashes are a symbol of beauty. As weddings are usually in the day, it is important to choose a lash that is not too over the top. Wedding makeup artist, Elaine Marie Buckley recommends, Eylure's Textured no.117 lashes. Makeup artist, Alex Waring loves Eylure's no.035 lashes for her brides as she says they are a beautiful natural looking lash that helps bring attention to the bride's eyes and the softer style will suit most people's eye shapes. Our wedding makeup artists are all also fans of using individual lashes for their bridal makeup.
What are the false eyelashes made from?
The false eyelashes can be made from synthetic fibres, human hair, or mink hair. Undercover Glamour does not sell mink hair eyelashes as we as a company do not agree with this. Undercover Glamour sells mostly synthetic lashes and occasionally human hair lashes. For example, Eylure's Girls Aloud range are made with synthetic fibres, and Eylure's Katy Perry range which we used to sell were made with human hair.
I have small eyes, will the fake eyelashes fit?
It is important to place the fake eyelashes on your eyelash line before applying the adhesive to test the fit. By doing this you will see if you need to make the fake eyelashes shorter, if you do, then simply cut the lashes to the same length as your natural lashes with a pair of scissors. Please measure first by placing the lash on your eye, then mark the lash as to where you need to shorten it by holding the lash or use tweezers, and then you can cut the lash when holding it away from your eye.
How long will false eyelashes stay on for?
Your false eyelashes (if applied correctly) will stay on for the whole day. We recommend for you to remove them along with your makeup at the end of the day.
Can I use eyelash curlers on my fake eyelashes?
Yes. Using the eyelash curlers will help blend in your natural lashes with the fake eyelashes.
Can I use mascara on my fake eyelashes?
Yes but apply with care. Whether you choose to wear mascara with your fake eyelashes will depend on the type of false eyelashes you have purchased. If you do apply mascara onto your fake eyelashes it is recommended that you apply mascara to your natural lashes first and then apply the fake eyelashes, once secure then apply the mascara. You can then press your fake eyelashes together with your natural lashes to help create a natural look, it is best to do this while the mascara is still wet.
How do I apply false eyelashes?
Please see the tab above for detailed information on how to apply your false eyelashes, you can also view here, How to apply Strip Lashes and for How to apply Individual Lashes.
How do I remove false eyelashes?
I find the easiest way to remove my lashes is when in the shower, as the steam and heat loosens the adhesive and then I can easily just peel them off. Or, you can remove by using a warm flannel and dabbing it over your eyelids, the warm water will loosen the adhesive. Never tug at them, once the warm water gets to the glue they will peel off easily. For individual lashes if you have used a strong, long lasting glue then please use the remover.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EYELASH GLUE
We sell Eylure's Eyelash Glue at Undercover Glamour as they offer a great product that is reasonably priced. Eylure provide a trusted product, and their eyelash glue provides a great hold and is safe to use. Please check you are not allergic to any of the ingredients before use, and if a reaction does occur please consult a doctor immediately. Eylure have been providing eyelash glue for over 70 years and have been providing safe and reliable products for that time, we feel that Eylure's glue is one of the best eyelash glues on the market.
Will people be able to see the eyelash glue on the fake eyelashes?
No. We recommend and sell Lashfix from Eylure and the glue dries clear on the fake eyelashes.
Is the eyelash glue for the fake eyelashes water resistant?
No. The adhesive for the fake eyelashes is water soluble. Therefore, if you do cry or go swimming whilst wearing your false eyelashes the glue will weaken and the fake eyelashes will fall off. Warm water is required to remove the eyelashes.
Could I have an allergic reaction to the eyelash glue for the fake eyelashes?
Please do not use if you are allergic to any of the following components used to make the adhesive:
Lashfix Ingredients; Water, Rubber Latex, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Phenoxyethanol, C9-11 Pareth-8, Sodium Salicylate, Methylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben.
Superfix Ingredients; Alcohol Denat, Ispropyt Alcohol, Nitrocellulose, Isopropyl, Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate.
If you have a reaction please consult a doctor immediately. Please do not use the eyelash glue for the fake eyelashes after a year since purchase to help avoid any issues.
Does the eyelash adhesive have a shelf life?
Yes, the glue comes in a tube and this has a shelf life of a year without being opened. Once opened the glue will have a life of about 2-3 months but this will depend on how many times you open the tube and how long you leave the lid off as the glue dries by air activation.
Human Hair Eyelashes versus Synthetic Hair Eyelashes
First off, the concept of getting 100% human hair for your false eyelashes is the same as getting 100% human hair for your hair extensions. The real thing feels more real, looks more real, and acts more real than any synthetic substitute.
Celebrity make-up artist, Alex Waring prefers using human hair for beauty shoots and especially for close up beauty shots, she says, “they are more natural when you look closely.” She does however use synthetic lashes as they are cheaper and still provide a really great look for other shoots. As well as human and synthetic lashes, Mink lashes are another option, however here at Undercover Glamour we don’t use or sell them, as our company founder does not agree with this practice and you might as well use human hair eyelashes as this gives the same effect.
Someone who has frequently used or worked with synthetic and human hair eyelashes would be able to feel the difference right away. Human hair lashes are noticeably lighter and a lot more delicate than synthetic hair lashes. When you brush your fingers up against the length of the hair, it feels feathery and soft to the touch and has less of the ‘tell-tale’ glossy sheen that is characteristic of synthetic eyelashes.
Another plus about human hair falsies is that the band is much more pliable (soft), and can easily bend to fit any eye shape, making them much easier to glue in place. Lashes made from synthetic materials not only have stiffer hairs (making them much harder to curl), but also stiffer and thicker bands. However you may be thinking why get synthetic when human lashes look to have the upper hand in the eyelash world, but unlike human hair lashes, they come in every desired length, curl, weight, and thickness.
