First of all, sorry it took so long to get this video up guise. We were in Singapore when Lee Hyori released her Bad Girl music video and we had to rush to edit the Lee Hyori makeup tutorial in time, but our flight was leaving that day and I didn’t get the chance to do the eyelash video. BUT HERE IT IS! Enter epic success music! Also, if you have no idea what makeup tutorial I’m referring to, we teamed up with the amazing Jungsaemmool makeup artists; in fact, the exact artist that did Lee Hyori’s makeup, and they did it on me! We divided up the videos, so if you want to see the professional foundation and shading tutorial you can check Jungsaemmool’s channel, and if you want some chipper Martina commentary, we have the eyeshadow and eyebrow tutorial on our channel. But for today, we’re looking at the final video of how they did my crazy huge eyelashes.
Okay, so let’s all take a moment to acknowledge the FACT that makeup can really change your face. Like whoa. And I think eyelashes are the most important point of makeup adjustment. When I have no mascara on, I really look super plain, but adding mascara and fake eyelashes makes me look 3940134901829% better. And I hate all you guise that are like, “OH MY EYELASHES ARE SOOOOO LONG THEY BUMP INTO MY GLASSES…” Feel that? No? Well I just threw a small feather pillow shaped like a grumpy honey badger at you. Yeah. That just happened. DEAL WITH IT.
The point of my (bitter) ramble is that eyelashes change your face. So imagine my excitement when I got to wear TWO pairs of eyelashes! It’s like the double rainbow moment for makeup! I expected to feel weighed down by the addition lashes but it surprisingly didn’t bother me. I think because they were using a higher quality eyelashes made from light weight material rather than a cheap plastic one. What amazed me the most about this look is that they used one pair as normal, but the second pair of lashes started halfway down my eyelid and extended past my normal lid line creating the illusion that I had bigger eyes. It was actually glued onto my smile line zone! Pretty cool! I’ve always wanted to try those paper cut out tattoo fake-eyelash things that have shapes instead of just simple lashes but I thought they were too dramatic for normal use, but now I think I’m going to buy a pair and cut them in half and use them as the second eyelashes were used. I think it could replace the use of winged eyeliner, you know what I mean?
