Come on, we all know there’s no such thing as too old when it comes to fashion and beauty. It’s up to you, how you feel, how you like to look and what makes you feel good.

There are certain products that help bridge that gap though and one of those is false eyelashes made specifically for more mature eyes. You should never underestimate the impact a good set of lashes can make to your face. They are a great way of Shorties are a new range of lashes that are slimmer and shorter with an empahsis on volume and thickness rather than glamour (model)!

I found these lashes to be extremely natural, they gave me an elegant, classic look rather than a Miss World daze and were really comfrotable too. The price point is good and they can be re-used. There’s nothing stopping you wearing them everyday, but for me they’re perfect for that special night out.

Why try false eyelashes?

Here are a few reasons why false eyelashes can be a great choice for older women:

Enhance your eyes: As we age, our lashes can become thinner and less prominent. False eyelashes can provide that extra volume and length, helping to define and highlight your eyes.

Boost of confidence: Wearing false eyelashes can give you a confidence boost. When you look good, you often feel good too. It’s a small change that can make a big difference in how you perceive yourself.

Subtle elegance: Opt for lashes that offer a natural, subtle look. These can help enhance your eyes without appearing overly dramatic. They can make your eyes pop without taking away from your natural beauty.

Fun and playful: Makeup and beauty should be fun at any age! Experimenting with different styles of false eyelashes can add a playful element to your beauty routine.

Special occasions: False eyelashes are great for special occasions like weddings, parties, or reunions. They can add a touch of elegance to your overall look and make you feel more put together.

Easy application: With a bit of practice, applying false eyelashes becomes easier. It’s a skill that you can learn and perfect over time. Plus, it’s a chance to pamper yourself.

Express your style: Whether you prefer a more natural look or enjoy a bit of glamour, there’s a wide variety of false eyelashes to choose from. You can express your personal style through your choice of lashes.

Remember, there’s no age limit to feeling and looking beautiful. If you’re curious about trying false eyelashes, go for it! Start with a natural style and see how you like it. It’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident. So, whether you’re heading out to meet friends, attend an event, or just want to treat yourself to a little beauty upgrade, don’t hesitate to give false eyelashes a try. You deserve to feel fantastic every day of the week!

how to apply false eyelashes

Top tips on applying fasle eyelashes

  • Cut the lashes down to size. If they’re too long then it’s possible to get them to fit, so measure them against your lid for length.
  • Apply glue to the lashes and leave to set for a minute or two, the adhesive sticks better when it is tacky.
  • Practice makes perfect! A lot like using contact lenses for the first time, the more you practice the easier it gets.
  • Have a professional apply them. If it’s just too difficult head to your local beautician or beauty counter, if you’re willing to buy them they’ll be willing to attach them.
  • Remove with eyemake up remover, as you would with normal make up. Hold the remover over the lid for a couple of moments to soften the glue then peel from the inner eye out.
  • If a full set isn’t your style then buy singles. Seperate lashes are perfect for opening up your eyes, adding volume and/or length.
