If you guys are anything like me and have picked up false eyelashes in the past that look completely dreadful on then you'll understand the reason for this post...Wouldn't it be nice to actually try them on and see what they look like before you purchase them? Time after time I have picked up lashes that look completely dreadful on me and sometimes I even end up going out without wearing any because a) I look like a drag queen or b) my eyes look even smaller than they already are.
Finding false eyelashes that suit your eye shape can be quite tricky and to be honest can be a bit of chore, most of us just stick to one pair that we know suit us and never venture out into any other styles - personally for me because of my small eyes I know that the natural ones suit me best so that's what I stick to but I would like to find others that suit me too.
This is where this app for your smartphone is here to help us all out (as much as it can). It is actually a great idea - it's pretty straight forward, you take (what I have found) an unflattering photo of yourself to make sure it picks up your eyes etc. (it can take a few attempts to get it right) after lining up your eyes correctly you can then flick through all of the lashes and virtually try them on. They fall into categories depending on the type of lashes they are - the categories are lengthening, volume, definition, texture, exaggerate or dramatic.
Once you have found a pair that you think suit you can go to the next step, which tells you the number of what lashes they are - it also gives you the option to purchase them if you'd like to.
Personally I think this app is quite helpful because sometimes you spend like £6-5 on a pair of lashes that end up not looking the way you'd hoped. The best way to try and not waste money is to give them a try on beforehand - this app is free and is definitely worth the download even if you want to just try it out...
