WHEN ENOUGH IS ENOUGH...

WHEN ENOUGH IS ENOUGH...

‏‏‎Everyone knows that fake lashes are fun—they’re a statement and the cherry on top of your look.  They can open your eyes, and draw attention to your face in the best way possible. Whatever your look, and wherever you’re going, there’s no wrong time to pop on a pair of lashes.

There’s something comforting in the boost of confidence that a fierce pair of falsies gives you.

You instantly feel empowered.

But there does come a time and place where enough is enough. There is a fine, fine line between too much and not enough, and Cali Lash is here to shed light on exactly where that line is.

Let’s go back in time…

You’re freshly eighteen, just discovered Vodka Cruisers and YouTube tutorials.

You’ve spent 20+ minutes blending out your smoky eye, you’ve hit pan on your Urban Decay Naked eye shadow palette, and you’re ready to put on your falsies and take on the night.

You’re staring at your reflection in the mirror, looking damn fine, but, every time you blink, your lids are struggling to lift back up.  Your lashes are too big! And they’re not giving you the look you’re going for.

Someone call the lash police because sister, you’ve got the wrong lashes on.

Now, there’s a reason we’ve been writing these blogs that teach you how to choose the perfect lashes and make sure your lashes fit you and are adhered properly. It’s to save you from making this ultimate mistake.

A general rule of thumb: If you’re struggling to open your eyes, enough is enough.

Opt for a lighter lash, give our blogs a read, diagnose your eye shape, and make sure your falsies fit you.

When it comes to picking your lashes, bigger isn’t always best.

Sometimes you’ll find that your eyes will pop more with a smaller, more natural lash that opens your eye up and shows off the hours of blending you just put yourself through.

If you have almond eyes, congratulations! You can get away with choosing more voluminous full lashes, which compliment your eye shape.

On the other hand, if you’re the fiery girl with bold, round eyes, then go ahead and flaunt a curly pair of lashes.

Being mysterious and sexy with hooded eyes? Get a combination of both long and tapered falsies which add depth and intrigue. Tick!

If you are among those who have mono-lid eyes, then wear fluttery, layered lashes to make your eyes pop, and to give dimension to the upper eyelid.

For those with close-set eyes, choose lashes that are more focussed on the outer corners of the eyes, to give them an outward stretched illusion. This will aid in uplifting your face, and will fill you with confidence to take on the world!

Still confused?

There are many posts on our blog explaining the secrets to lashes, and ensuring you pick the style that’s best for you.  So go ahead–dive in, have a read, and together we can avoid every kind of falsie fail.

But there does come a time and place where enough is enough. There is a fine, fine line between too much and not enough, and Cali Lash is here to shed light on exactly where that line is.
