Stash Lashes

I recently discovered these fun things at Sephora:

and I want them. 

I’d love to have just the tips of my eyelashes decorated with delicate cut out feathers. I can’t justify $19 (or $9 on sale, even) for a one-time use eye accessory. So here’s my $2, conceivably reusable version:

Needed: $1 sheet of mustache stickers from Target, $1 false eyelash kit, also from Target, powder (any on hand), scissors (also on hand) .

Apply makeup as usual, preferably with a dark eyeliner to blend in with the mustaches (I’ll use gel or liquid liner tonight, couldn’t find it this morning). 

Choose a mustache with a fun curly edge, and trim it to a tapered point.  You can try them on at this point and see if you need to trim down any more.

Apply powder to the sticky side, just of the parts you don’t want to stick to your face (like the big curl on these).

Curl the sticker around a makeup brush or eyeliner, so that it stands away from your face.

Apply eyelash glue to the pointy tip and wait a bit until it’s tacky.

Place the sticker at the corner of your eye. Bask in your awesomeness, and ring in the New Year in style! Or, as I’m going to do right now, go out grocery shopping looking rather eccentric. It’s okay. Just own it.
