Too Faced Better Than False Lashes: How to Apply

too faced better than false lashes
I have been using Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension System. I really love it. It does much more than a regular mascara and it kind of does resemble false lashes. I read a lot of reviews about it. People seem to love it or hate it. I can see why people would hate it. It isn't a mascara you can quickly apply and go. It takes some time to work with. 

I like it because it really does makes my lashes look longer. I have found it is best to do one eye at a time. Do the top lashes only. The mascara is very sticky and takes some time to dry. When you apply it to the top and bottom lashes, they stick together easily. It's quite annoying. Use a regular mascara on the bottom. Start by curling your lashes. This application process works with any brand 2 part lash fiber system including Cherry Blooms.

The Lash Fiber Application Process

Step 1: 

Apply a coat of Activating Mascara Base and Top Coat to the top lashes. Apply a nice even coat. Be fairly generous with it. Try to keep the lashes as separated as possible during application. Also, direct the lashes carefully where you want them to be. The mascara is very sticky so lashes can stick together easily. Don't wiggle the wand.

Step 2: 
Apply the nylon lash fibers. They are white fibers. Apply them from mid lash to the lash tips, concentrating on the tips. The fibers stick easily to the mascara. Do a nice even layer.  Again, don't wiggle the wand. Don't over do it either or it will be hard to hide all the fibers and your lashes can look fuzzy.

Step 3: 
Apply another coat of the Activating Mascara Base and Top Coat. Take your time and keep this layer on the thin side. Coat the fibers and work them out to the ends of your lashes. You have got to work with it to seal the fibers so the lashes don't look fuzzy. Don't wiggle the wand. Pull the wand from the base of your lashes to the tip. The fibers will stretch out with the mascara wand. I sometimes use the tip of the mascara wand to really seal in and pull the fibers on a particular lash. Sometimes I get a ridiculously long one that a need to pull off.

Step 4: 

This is my own step. I like to add a coat of a regular lengthen mascara on top. My favorite inexpensive brand is Wet n Wild Mega Lengths. The regular mascara continues to seal the fibers while keeping the lashes from looking clumpy. It also help stop the stickiness.  lash comb


I sometimes use a lash comb or dry mascara spooly to separate lashes that have stuck together too much.  I have to be careful not to pull off the extension, though.

That's it. They tell you can repeat steps 2 & 3. I don't. The lashes start to clump and get that thick spidery look. 


The mascara is water resistant but not waterproof. It comes off with "soap and water". It can make a smeary mess though. I like to wet my face in the shower. Then, I use my thumb and index finger to gently work the mascara off. Use an eye makeup remover to remove the rest.


Another thing I find is the warm air from a blow dryer while drying your hair softens the lashes and makes them sticky again. Do your hair styling before you apply.

This product has been replaced by Too Faced Better than False Lashes Extreme.

It is much less sticky which also prevents it from stretching the way the out formula did. It still makes your lashes look great but I like the sticky old formula better. The application process is the same.

Find it at Ulta, Sephora and toofaced.com for $35.00.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. πŸ” Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
