TotalBeauty.com is such a great beauty resource- if you aren’t on there, you should be. I still take to heart the reviews I read from women who let you know exactly what works and what not to spend your hard earn dollars on.
They also post some great videos teaching basic techniques from applying concealer to trimming your own bangs. I especially liked this one on applying false lashes, which is even tricky for me to do on myself.
New Year’s celebrations merit a little something special like false lashes, but if you think this is just beyond something you would even try, watch it with a friend and apply them on each other which is easier than on yourself. Just get an extra set at the drugstore to use before the big night. Don’t worry about making them perfectly even, you can fix mistakes with a little black liner.
