Unlike Caucasians, due to genetics, most Asians have short and thin eyelashes that are dispersed. We require additional beauty tools to thicken, lengthen, strengthen and volumise them.
The trend of using fake eyelashes, or as I'd prefer to call it, falsies are seen almost anywhere and everywhere on many ladies' faces now.
So, what are the right types and styles for you?
Before sharing some juicy info and tips on the falsies I use, let us sit back, relax and enjoy these awesome pictures, shall we?
We have our famous Katy Perry (who has recently been under the limelight for her failed marriage with Russell Brand and her current sizzling hot news with her new lover, John Mayer) with her pretty eyelashes that helps to open up her eyes, making them look mesmerising as well as more alert!

And then we have Kim Kardashian, making use of falsies to create the alluring smoking eyes, sultry look.

Yes, notice how these falsies help to achieve the look you want? But you can't do that without choosing the right type of falsies.

The fundamental factor in deciding the right falsies for you, would be the length of the falsies. Are they too long for you? Will you look like a witch instead of a beauty queen? As eyes are the windows to our soul, whatever changes you make on your eyes will affect your whole appearance and I'm serious!

You may try experimenting with those quirky designs but make sure they are appropriate for the event you are attending! A dress-up funky party or perhaps even for nightlife would be suitable, but definitely not for casual shopping outings or company's events. Yes, you'll get all the attention you want, but for all the wrong reasons.

Okay, all these falsies are just WAAAYYY TOO OVERRRR!!! Dramamama, anyone?
Well, unless you're some anorexic model putting on your best front, catwalking along the fashion runway, if not, DON'T EVEN TRY THEM. Not ever, please.

A comparison between a 'before and after' preview illustrates the effects falsies create on your eyes. Feminism and stereotyping aside, you can't disagree that ladies look much better with battering eyelashes.

Closer to our hearts, here's a picture of Asian eyes. Notice the short natural lashes on the left and the instant volumising effects of falsies on the right. They actually look more like eyelash extensions but they are not. If you take a look at the website, they are actually falsies from MAC.
Now, take a look at some different falsies themselves.

As per above, I would only advise you to wear those which are 'out of the norm' looking ones during parties or clubbing. I think they are look perfectly fine for that, except for the feather looking ones.
An overview of my falsies
They are really awesome and you can get them at SaSa for only approx $6.90 for 6 pairs! There are promotions that reduce the price to $4.90 as well so do keep a lookout! :D I have been using these brands ever since I had been using falsies for 4 years plus?! And damn, I swear by them! :D
They are not filmsy nor easily shed the lash hairs. IMO, they are of a good quality despite their price! <3
The models are 703, 704 and 706 :)
I was once told that crisscross types look the most natural...But I think it simply varies individually..
Currently, I am using them as well.
I don't usually wear these type because they are sort of a milder version, not so dramatic. But I guess they are apt for work :)
Notice that these are double-fold eyelids? I never knew until I'd snapped this picture. But I do get double eyelids after putting them on, although sometimes they throw me off balance (pun intended), leaving me with 1 double eyelid and 1 single eyelid.
The trick is to press it against your eyelids when putting them on, to create the cease/fold. Something similar to using the double eyelid glue as well. Also, don't put it too close to your own eyelashes, put them a little higher on your eyelids instead, about 0.5 to 1cm. Don't worry, you can conceal the sight of your flesh using eyeliner.
I think I might just do up a post on putting on eyelashes because some of you girls, I know, are still struggling with that. Don't worry, practice does make perfect! :D
I hope this post has helped you in choosing for the right design of falsies. :)
If nothing works for you, try using hair extensions or cut off your hair to achieve this look :

You'll bound to turn heads, pop eyes and cause massive salivation along the streets...
On a side note, OUCH LOOK AT THOSE STICKY GLUE ON THE EYELIDS. I feel sorry for this girl even though it's just for laugh (I hope!) :D
