Rite-Aid, Right On
We always heard that drugstores have the best budget beauty buys, so we walked into our local Rite-Aid to check out their lash section (much to the chagrin of the store’s security guard) and were impressed by the beauty booty on the shelves. We came across Ardell Duralash Starter Kit ($10 at Ride-Aid), which contains everything you need to get started. This power pack contains 65 individual lashes in various sizes, a tweezer, the glue and remover so you can pop on a few, or dramatically enhance the entire lash line.
Lashes For Ever
When you want to look your best, look no further than Make Up For Ever Individual Eyelashes. We scooped up a pair of their Stacy 9 style ($15 at Sephora.com), and no surprise, we immediately noticed the professional-quality of the set. On our own, we applied their Chocolate Matte eyeshdow, then affixed a few faux lashes for added drama. The effect instantly intensified our eyes, so our beauty routine is now done in two steps.
Glow with the Faux
Change your outlook in the blink of an eye. We love the wink-worthy style of Urban Decay Urban Lash in INSTAFLAIR ($15 at Sephora.com). These mini-lashes have a rounded flare at the outer corner and gave us a confidence boost to add drama to your lash life. They are simple to apply and come in a little ornate box with a latex-free lash adhesive to ensure no lash snafus and peace of mind.
Three Last Minute Lash Tips:
1. Always customize lash strips by trimming the width to your liking for a perfect fit
2. Prevent lash-slide by waiting 10 seconds for the glue to get tacky before fitting your new glam lashes in place
3. Amp up the drama so not even your best friend could detect it by fusing real and faux lashes with deep black mascara
