Aug 15, 2011 by

Eyelashes, I love them. I love them in all shapes and forms, crazy or little I don’t care, I just love them :D and you all know I like making things… so of course it follows I wanted to make my own lashes!

For my first attempt I went for something crazy, long and spindly, now that I’ve got the hang of it I want to make so many other kinds too! The result…

    And my mother told me it was cheaper to buy fake eyelashes than to make them!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Hahaha it probably is if you pay yourself for the time XD

    Violet, would it be weird if I told you I was in love with you? I won’t tell my husband, I swear!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Lolololol no weird at all, I promise not to tell James either ;)

    Wow! This is an excellent idea!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Thanks Rabbit!

    Impressive! I have never thought about actually making lashes before. Maybe that’s because I don’t use them that much. With different fabrics the possibilities are endless! I have one question though; are these lashes sturdy? Storebought lashes usually bounce back into shape and that sort of thing, what about these?

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      I found that these ones aren’t as sturdy as store bought ones in the band but they still work well when coaxed back to shape gently. The curve stayed put in the lashes as well as store bought ones ^_^

    I love this! What a cool idea!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Thank you!

  • Jessica

    So cute! Think of all the colors we make now :)

    I wonder how the curling would work if you put them on first, and tried to use an eyelash curler? They even have ones that are heated. I’m afraid of burning my fingers :p

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      I have a heated one, I’ll have to try it out, thanks for the idea!

  • http://angelshinigami.blogspot.com/ Kathleen

    wow o.o I’ve never though of useing organza in this way…you are to creative for your own good sometimes…..o.o

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      XD Totally no such thing!

  • http://www.purplesandpinks.blogspot.com/ Wanda

    Wow! I didn’t know that you can make eyelashes out of ORGANZA fabric of all things. xD You are truly creative.

    So I take it that you can’t use an eyelash curler for these “lashes”? Probably doesn’t, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. xD

    For some reason, the left one looks a little weird to me. Haha. Just letting you know.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      No clue if you can or not, I don’t generally use eyelash curlers whether I’m using falsies or now, I’ve got a heated one which I imagine would work though ^_^

  • http://luhivy.blogspot.com Luhivy

    This is so cool! I never even thought making your own lashes was possible :O

    They look great by the way!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      :D Thanks Luhivy!

  • http://amyboox.blogspot.com Amyboo

    Ohhh my goodness! That is just INCREDIBLE and creative! How are you able to come up with so much awesome things?!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Hahaha too much time thinking about random silly things results in this!

  • http://happycatmint.blogspot.com Alyssa


    That made me laugh. XD

    I would have never come up with making my own eyelashes; it’s fascinating! :D I think you did a really good job; I never would have known that they were handmade out of fabric. :D

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Hahaha why thank you :D *smoulder*

  • http://www.memybestandi.blogspot.com Me my best and I

    Seriously- how clever are you- that is amazing!!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Thank you so much <3

  • http://www.piperslair.com Piper

    So awesome *claps hands*. This seriously beats the alternative method of making them by saving your natural lashes once they have fallen out and then gluing them together once enough are collected to some fishing string or dental floss, LOL, just kidding.

    • http://www.piperslair.com Piper

      Oh yeah, I wanted to mention, another option to curl those lashes is to use a heated eye lash curler instead of the hair straightener, it might be less bulky to handle and easier to manuver, maybe, LOL. You’re awesome.

      • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

        I have one of those! I think it doesn’t put out enough heat to melt the plastic but definitely worth giving it a try!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Hahaha that would take sooooo long XD

  • http://myau-club.blogspot.com Neko

    They are absolutely gorgeous! I was just wondering, what did you use to stick them on? normally store bought lashes have a little tube of glue, did you just use some of that? Brill post! :) <3

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      I buy my tube of glue separately because I’m allergic to most of the glue that comes with normal lashes ^_^

  • T-Chan

    Holy crap! You are brilliant! <3 I am so gonna try this.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Just use regular eyelash glue, you can buy it at drug stores :)

      Hi Talita, thanks so much for your comment! I’m not a skin expert so the best thing to do would be to talk to a doctor or a dermatologist about how you can help your skin. Just remember to drink lots of water too! Sorry I couldn’t help more :)
