This was also my first dabble with Duo glue. I was so excited to try it out that I managed to squirt some on my bed (those with filthy minds need not comment..). This was only the start of me messing up the application. I applied the glue, waited for it to go tacky and then started to apply the lashes with the aid of tweezers. I don't mind admitting that I made a terrible hash of it. The lash strip was very flexible and quite long and I struggled to get it to follow my lash line. I managed to stick them down in such a wonky way that I would have required super heavy Dusty Springfield style liner to cover up the bodge! Instead of doing that I took a few pictures of myself, laughed a lot and then took them off before my husband came home. I was worried he'd think I'd asked the children to join me in a game of 'let's play make-up artists'!
I'm not normally quite so cack-handed with false lashes and have previously had success with Eyelure Naturalites. I think the fairly natural look of the lashes is probably more forgiving. It's possible that trimming the #33 lashes would help.
I'm still on a journey with make-up application. Having started wearing make-up daily later on in life, at times I still feel quite inept. However, it's one of the few areas in life that I don't mind messing up and starting again. Are there any aspects of make-up application that you don't feel as confident about?
Disclosure: These lashes and glue were part of an event bag. The bodges were all my own!
