Your Halloween costume is picked out, and your party-going plan is all set. But you’re still missing that special something that will make your outfit pop: Eyelashes. False eyelashes might seem a bit high maintenance for everyday wear, but they’re the perfect final touch for your Halloween look.
False eyelashes have come a long way. Different colors, shapes — and even textures — are available to complement your costume without your having to shell out a lot of money. Here are a couple tips to getting this drama for your Halloween costume this year.
Pick the right pair.
Consider your costume and find the right pair of fake eyelashes to go with your look. If you’re a 1920s flapper, then dark thick eyelashes are your look. Dressing as a bird? Go all out with feather eyelashes. Any cosmetic or beauty counter offers an array of options.
Go to a professional.
Many makeup counters will put your fake eyelashes on for free with an eyelash purchase. Make it your last stop before you go out, and you’ll be all set!
