What we love about wearing false lashes is that they give us, well, that false lash effect – blessing us with the eyelashes that unfortunately we weren’t naturally blessed with.
Though, at the same time, what we don’t like is when they look very obviously fake. So what’s a girl to do?
Enter a viral hack that will completely change your false lashes game.
The video was shared by makeup artist Paloma Garcia on her Facebook page recently and has gone viral – we’re talking millions of views in the first 48 hours kind of viral.
The video shows her fluffing up her synthetic eyelashes with a spoolie to make them look like mink eyelashes – or as close to real ones as possible.
What’s a spoolie I hear you ask? You probably already have one in your makeup bag.
A spoolie is basically a mascara wand (minus the mascara) with a tapered head and soft bristles.
The original post garnered 14 million views in just a few days.
As well as gaining serious views, many fans have tried it out and it works just as well as Paloma’s example to their amazement…
