Make-up artist demonstrates fake eyelashes hack

A video showing a simple technique that a make-up artist uses to make her fake eyelashes look more realistic has gone viral on Facebook.

Paloma Garcia is a 20-year-old make-up artist from Tamaulipas, Mexico.

On Friday she shared a video on social media that shows her fluffing up some fake eyelashes with a spoolie brush.

The video has since gone viral on Facebook, garnering more than 14 million views and more than 23,000 reactions.

Beauty fanatics have expressed their awe over how effective and straightforward Garcia’s technique has turned out to be.

Finding the perfect false eyelashes can be tough, as a number of people struggle to find affordable options that don’t look too fake.

However, with Garcia’s spoolie method, many are now commenting that they can spruce up cheap false eyelashes with ease.

One person tweeted that she had tested the technique, describing it as a “game changer”.

Another individual shared a photo of a pair of false eyelashes before and after trying out the method, demonstrating the drastic difference a spoolie brush can make.

A spoolie brush is more commonly used as an eyebrow-shaping tool.

However, Garcia has proven that the beauty implement is extremely versatile.

False eyelashes can vary greatly in price. On the Boots website, packets of fake eyelashes range from £2.99 to £19.99.

For those who would rather not loosen the purse strings, purchasing a spoolie could definitely turn out to be a money saver.
