Video Tutorial - How to Apply False Eyelashes

Finally!  My first video tutorial!  It took me awhile because I really just needed to be comfortable with seeing how I looked on camera.  I am still not entirely happy, but I think with practice and time my videos will get better. Not to mention how many hours it takes to do simple editing!  And YouTube limits the time you can do the videos.  So, here it is!   Enjoy!

You will need:
DUO eyelash adhesive
Eyelashes of your choice.  I am using Red Cherry's #523.
Orange Stick or end of a brush.

Try on the lashes before applying the glue and trim as needed on the outer eye part of the lash.
Only apply a thin layer of the glue on the base of the lash.
Put a tiny "bead" on the tips.
Let glue air dry for about 20 seconds or until it is tacky.
Curl real lashes first if the grow downwards.
Hold both ends of the lashes and place on the lash line, NOT on your real lashes!
Press into your lash line with the end of a small makeup brush or orange stick.
Glue will show white at first but should dry clear.
If you make a mistake, simply remove the lash and clean the glue off.  Try again.
Use a regular mascara like Mabelline's Great Lash to blend the real lashes and fake lashes together. 
Don't forget mascara on your lower lashes.
You can use your lashes 10-12 times if you take care of them.  Just wash the lashes with facial soap and air dry the container they came in. 

Where to buy:
Red Cherry Lashes http://www.madamemadeline.com/ $1.99
Duo lash adhesive CVS stores $4
Makensie Ring $75 and Mimi earrings $34 from www.guyandeva.com/michellekinkaid

And there you go!  I would love to see how you do!  Post comments and pics below or on www.facebook.com/mkmakeupartist.com.  Good Luck!

Review - Red Cherry 100% Human Hair Eyelash Strips

When I had read an article that Kim Kardashian and her family only use Red Cherry 100% Human Hair Eyelashes, I immediately hit Google to find out how I can get them.  Have you seen how insanely long their eyelashes are?  And perfect?  Can you tell I am seriously jealous?  They are surprisingly not offered at many stores.  But the best price I found them for was at http://www.madamemadeline.com/.  They were only $1.99 a pair and you got free shipping if you spent $85.  I know that seems like a lot of pairs of eyelashes but for the beautiholic such as myself that's a bargain.  Especially since Red Cherry offers a huge selection to try.  In addition to the already low price of these lashes Madame Madeline sent me 2 free pairs.  What a deal!  Just to give you a comparison MAC offers 100% human hair lashes for around $15 a pair.  Now you understand why I am so excited. Did I mention that Red Cherry's lashes are 100% Human hair and NOT synthetic?  Well that can be a big difference.  Human hair is much lighter and natural feeling then a synthetic lash.   So I placed my order.  Roughly 40 pairs and almost all of them different. 

The shipping was so fast.  Just about 4 days.  I opened up my box and my heart soared.  Ahhhh.  They are gorgeous!  The packaging isn't very attractive, but I don't care.  It's what's inside that counts.  Some of the lashes are really dramatic.  I wouldn't even wear them except for a fashion shoot or for Halloween.  Or if I was a drag queen.  I think some people could pull it off such as the Kardashians, but not me.  There are so many that are appropriate for everyday, for weddings, for a night out.  For those of you that want a little umph.  My favorite for a natural look is the 747M (pictured).  This style also comes in a small and large.  (M is for Medium).  I would recommend a small if you have Asian eyes, small eyes or very little lashes.  Medium for medium length lashes and eyes, and large for you know, large eyes.  I also had a bride that loved the #1 for her big day.  I am amazed at the quality of the lashes for the price.  I would put them up there with MAC's line.  They are easy to apply, light to wear, and very comfortable.  The range of styles is impressive too.  And you can't beat the price.  My vote is 5 lip smacks.  Hands down my new favorite lashes to wear.  Go get yourself a pair or 40.
