Outrageous fake eyelashes are a really fun and unique way to send any costume or outfit over the top. They will really make you stand out at parties, festivals, Burning Man, parades, clubs or just around town if you like surprising people. But sometimes, you just can't find what you are looking for or can't be bothered with the fuss of putting them on. I'll show you how to customize your own fake eyelashes and apply them to they stay put all day (or all night)!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
To make your own custom eyelashes, you will need:
-Fake eyelashes for your base. These can be whatever kind you want. I like to wait until after Halloween and then buy a bunch of them for a dollar each. You can get nice, expensive ones if you want, but it's really not necessary.
-Embellishments. Anything from feathers to sequins and rhinestones to cake sprinkles (yes! give them a coat of clear nail polish to keep the ants away), watch parts for a steampunk look and colorful eye shadows if you want to change the colors of the lashes. I would not recommend using glitter or other powders that are not intended for eye wear in case they fall off the lashes.
-spirit gum and/or eyelash glue.
-scissors (not pictured)
-Tweezers, brushes, toothpicks, implements to help you attach your embellishments to your fake lashes.
