The theme for this week's Antipodean Beauties challenge is Lashes. Now, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with false lashes, so I decided I had to use some for this theme, since it is a challenge after all! I love falsies because they look fantastic on, but they often take a while to apply on my large eyes (even makeup artists have trouble sometimes) and as I'm usually doing my makeup looks at night, I'm often too tired to fuss around with them!
As you can see, paper lashes are really long, so I decided to split them up and use the butterflies on the lower lashline. If you ever use paper lashes, be really careful with them as they are quite fragile and can tear very easily. I found it helpful to gently detach them from the backing with a pair of tweezers.
Here's what I came up with!

I hope you liked the look, lovelies! What do you think of the paper lashes? If you'd like to try some out for yourself, you can buy them here (with free shipping)! If you're careful with them, you can actually get more than several uses out of them, they aren't completely fragile. :)
