Viral Hack For False Eyelashes - Does It Work?

False Eyelashes

Over the last week or so I've seen a video pop up all over social media showing a super simple hack to make cheap, plastic false eyelashes look more wispy and expensive so today I decided to test it out and see if it really works. 
To do this hack all you need is a cheap pair of false eyelashes and a clean spoolie. This will work best on really dramatic lashes that have a plastic look and are a bit too uniform. All you need to do is take your spoolie and scrub back and forth over the lashes until you get the desired effect.

Primark False Eyelashes

To test this out I picked up two different pairs of false eyelashes from Primark that cost just £1 each! I actually quite like the false eyelashes from Primark they are super inexpensive and can look great if you pick the right style. Usually, I pick up the ones that look wispy and natural so today I picked styles that are more dramatic and that I usually wouldn't look twice at to see if this hack can improve them.

Dramatic Lashes
These were the first pair of lashes that I picked up because as the name suggests these are a more dramatic style, initially I didn't think I liked these but the more I looked at them the prettier I actually think they are even before trying out this hack. I gave these a scrub with the spoolie for a good few minutes, it can take a little time to see results so don't give up too quickly. The end result wasn't a huge change in appearance although I could see a difference and the lashes did look more natural. I think the difference was quite subtle because of the style of lashes, the individual lashes on the band were quite fine and smooth and I think this hack works best on very full, thick, dramatic and fake looking lashes.

Volume Lashes
I picked up this pair of lashes as they are definitely not a style I would ever usually wear, these are super full and way too straight and uniform which feels very unnatural. I scrubbed away at these lashes with my spoolie, don't be afraid, you do need to be fairly rough with them, just be careful not to damage the band. This style showed much better results and I was actually quite impressed, I think the end result was a definite improvement. The lashes look much more fluttery and natural, I noticed on both of the lash styles a more 3D look was given which I really like.

Overall, I would say this hack works, the trick is to pick the right style of lashes to do it with, it works best with very dramatic lashes, the cheaper and tackier looking the better the results you get. This really helps to give the lashes a more 3D look and takes away some of the shine that makes the lashes look 'plasticky'.
