Ardell Magnetic Accents 001
My typical makeup routine consists of two coats of mascara (three if I'm feeling fancy), so it was no surprise that the simple accents (style 001) caught my eye first. Unlike full strips, accent lashes are placed on the outer corners of the lash line to open your fringe and give it a cat-eye effect.
When I saw the top and bottom attachments in the package, I was confident that I would immediately eff it up. But I was wrong: applying the set was actually quite easy.
I placed the top half along my upper lash line and plopped the bottom one right underneath my upper lash line. The magnets clasped together and the outer corners of my lashes were living their best lives. Not only did they look like individual lash extensions, but I didn't spend 15 minutes before a mirror getting glue stuck to my eyelids. I really loved that the accents just gave my lashes subtle flair that wasn't too intense.
My only tip would be giving your natural lash some extra curl and mascara before applying these. I felt like the lengthy pieces at the end didn't seamlessly blend with the rest of my lashes. Next time, I'll definitely use an eyelash curler and apply a few extra coats of lengthening mascara before putting these on.
