I’m quite liking these new false eyelashes I got from Primark, of all places. 
I love lashes to appear lived in, I can’t stand them fresh of the packet. 
So, I soak them in hot water with Johnson’s baby shampoo when I first get them. 
This just softens the lash hairs & takes away the rigidness. 

You’re probably thinking that this process would ruin the lashes, but I’ve always found they stay intact with no issues - both synthetic and real hair.

I usually wear my lashes for about a year or so - yes that’s correct… Over a years use out of them. 
I look after them by soaking off the glue (in the same way - hot water & baby shampoo), cleaning them, and reshaping the lashes while they dry. 

I always get asked if my lashes are my own, and this is because they look soft and fluffy - lived in. 
Everyone has their own preference when it comes to falsies; some people love the crisp look of a new set.  Whereas other people, like myself, prefer the softer appearance. 

If the lashes I’ve purchased are on a thick band and are doubled-up then I don’t soak them, I leave them as they come. 
I only do this with lashes that are on a fine band. 
Usually eyelashes made from real hair turn out much nicer than the pair I’m sporting in this image, but these are a cheap pair so they are little more wispy looking that I usually like. 
All things considered - I’m pretty impressed with the result. View Larger

bless them for letting baby girl keep her heritage
I peep them braids and that dress

I was just thinking this. She actually takes the children back to visit their family in their home country and they study about their own cultures. She isn’t one of those white people trying to assimilate her non-white children. 

Angelina Jolie is a woman who uses her money and publicity to do wonderful, magnificent things. Bless her and this amazing family she has brought together.

I’m in love with their love

This is my new favorite photoset. It’s so perfect.

The dress her daughter is wearing is called a “zuria”, or kidane habesha as my family says, and it’s tradition to wear for Ethiopians to wear zurias to important events, such as weddings. They are hand made, custom dresses, and it’s so amazingly wonderful that they were able to get her one to wear.
