Putting on your fake eyelashes backward is the awkward new craze sweeping the internet!
The internet loves a bizarre beauty trend. From glow in the dark hair to micro-needling facials, we’ve seen it all at this point.
Or at least we thought we had seen it all, and then the reverse falsies trend came along, and now we’re just plain confused.
Yep, it’s backward false eyelashes that everyone’s talking about this week after makeup artist Pablo Rodriguez took to Instagram to show off an easy way to give yours a simple high fashion update.
If you’re tired of having the same terrifically dull human-looking eyelashes as everybody else, makeup artist Pablo Rodriguez (@pablo_rodriguez_makeup) has you covered. He came up with a quick new way to apply false lashes that is so oddly stunning you’re going to be mad you didn’t think of it first.
As you’ve probably thought by now, it primarily involves applying individual lashes in reverse so you affix them using what might usually be the tips. The resulting look is a perfect type of spidery, Twiggy-style clumped lashes.
Overall it’s a very ethereal sort of style, but we suppose it’ll look pretty ace during the winter months and party season, so it might be worth trying out if you like to be a little different.
Instead of applying lashes the usual way with the root glued to the lid– he put them on backward. So the result is absolutely Alien-Chic!
The out-of-the-box application produces a geometric spidery look that’s unquestionably unique.
To do it, just apply glue to the lash tips, then stick them to your own lash line like usual.
For extra drama make like Pablo and leave the brows natural but brushed up and out with some clear gel to add volume. The minute they’re dry, go ahead and bat your eyes like the queen of weirdness you are.
