Many of my friends have already heard of the latest installment in my parenting saga, but many of my bloggy friends that follow my parenting journey have yet to hear it. Now you see them, now you don’t…
The heirloom doll doesn’t look all that creepy when her eyes are open, but with her eyes closed… well, you can see for yourself!
Well, my little Fireball decided one day last week (without my knowledge and definitely my consent) to pull ALL the eyelashes on one eye!!! I was looking online on some false eyelashes to maybe glue them on the eye…
I found this on ehow.com (my reaction in green):
- Buy a false eyelash kit. A proper fake eyelash kit contains a pair of eyelashes, glue, and instructions. Take the false eyelashes out of the package and hold them up to your real lashes to measure for the best fit.
- Curl your lashes. Add a little bend to your fringe of lashes before you apply your false lashes. If you cannot afford an expensive ShuUemura Eyelash Curler for $19, a spoon or a cheap eyelash curler will work as well. [Okay, what if there isn’t ANY lashes to start with for curling or bending?]
- Trim your false eyelashes to fit the natural shape of your eyes. The lashes you’ve grown are longer toward the crease of your eye and shorter as they approach your nose. Use the small scissors to snip the fake eyelashes to your desired length and shape.
- Attach the false eyelashes to your real lashes with glue. Dot the base of your false eyelashes with 3 or 4 dots of glue. With your tweezers, pick up the first eyelash and dip the plastic end into the glue. [Again, there are no real lashes].
Apply Fake Eyelashes
Tilt your head at a forty-five degree angle and close one eye. Place the fake eyelashes at your upper lid’s outer corner until you reach the inner corner of your eye. Hold the fake lash in place for 10 seconds. Apply two coats of mascara to bind the false eyelashes to your eyes. Avoid fiber mascara formulations.
Baby hasn’t shown the slightest bit of concern regarding her doll’s appearance. I think I shall table the eyelash therapy idea for a while — the instructions on ehow are rather daunting.
I love Vicki‘s response when I told her about this little episode… “Oh good, her goth leaning is coming out!” I got a good laugh out of that one!!
