A friend of mine shared a tip she uses as a cosplayer: instead of applying the false eyelashes right on your lashline, make a thick thick thick line of eyeliner, and put the false eyelashes on top of that line.

I find false eyelashes too finicky for everyday wear, but applying it this way is easier than usual because you don't have to worry about putting it right against your eye, you're just placing it on a random spot on your eyelids. There's less fussiness about getting everything placed just right.

It's easily the most ridiculous thing I've ever done to my eyes -- but I love it. It's great! My eyes looked huge~

There are two distinct layers of eyelashes (the false ones, and my real ones), but since I have black natural eyelashes and used black eyeliner/black false eyelashes, it's not obvious unless you have your face right up against mine.

Pros: Less worrying about trying to manipulate something fine near your eyes, end of the false eyelashes can't poke against the the edge of your eyelids (especially as the day wears on), skin further away from the eye is less delicate than skin near the eye, no problems removing the false eyelashes (less risk of makeup remover in eyes), potentially better hygiene since you're not going right up against your eye.

Cons: I don't know if it will work if your eyelashes aren't black / the same shade as your eyeliner or false eyelashes. Ridiculously makes me want to try false eyelashes more??

Ooh, interesting! I'll experiment with that - I got false lashes for cosplay, and I haven't tried them yet.

I have actually never successfully applied false eyelashes before, and I've tried at least three separate times. D: The next time I feel masochistic enough to try again, I will try this tip!
