What’s the number one beauty product you’ll never see a celebrity leave home without? Fake eyelashes. The reality TV stars, the biggest popstars in the world, TV actresses, movie stars – they’re all wearing them and that’s why their eyes always look so amazing.
How do I know this? I was a celebrity gossip journalist for years, and my work brought me into close contact with some of the biggest stars in the world. And the majority of these gorgeous ladies had some definite enhancements going on in the eyelash region!
While a lot of the big stars will use some subtle and expensive eyelash extensions, you’d be surprised how many just go for the standard strip of lashes. This is because they want to be able to take them off easily at the end of a day of busy appearances.
If you’ve been wondering why your mascara just isn’t giving you the same intense eyelashes you see on red carpets, Instagram and on screen, this is your answer. You’ll even notice in some mascara advertisements these days they will have a little note in the corner that says something about “lash inserts” or “lash extensions” being used. So if you have short lashes like me then your mascara alone is never going to reach those sky high lengths!

So now that you know, are you ready to join the fake eyelash club?
Let’s talk about eyelash extensions first. I have had them and I love them, and I felt like I barely needed any other makeup to look put together and ready for any event. However, they are quite expensive and only last for a few weeks. If you are really careful and only sleep on your back you’ll be able to keep them looking incredible. However I was a bit lazy with them and also slept on my side, which I think damaged them as they got pressed into my pillow. They can look really natural or mega glam, whatever you want. I highly recommend at least trying them once!
Otherwise, you can try fake lashes! These come in strips or individual lashes. You need to use a special eyelash glue to apply them. I recommend curling your natural lashes first before you apply.

We included Revlon Fantasy Lengths eyelashes in some of our July bellaboxes. We absolutely love these lashes, and considering natural beauties Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde are two of the current faces of the brand you know these are going to look glam but tasteful at the same time. There are also many other lengths in the Revlon range of lashes. Revlon products are available from Priceline and other retailers across Australia.
