DIY black light false eyelashes

EDIT/Disclaimer: To clarify the paint dries on the false eyelashes, they never touch your skin. It stays glued to your eyelid then you take it off when your done wearing them. Your real eyelashes are not affected. I would never put anything up on the internet to endanger/hurt anyone if that makes sense. If you hurt yourself or your eyes in the process, I will not be held accountable for your actions.

 

My friends birthday is coming up so I made her some custom false eyelashes by request- that glow under black light! This all started when my friends commented on my custom falsies I always modify and wear around. In normal day light these falsies are super bright and eye catching. I used thin false eyelashes I bought from China off of Amazon.com:

As far as false eyelashes go you get what you pay for but these were decent for the price.

On to the photos 😀

I used two coats of acrylic neon craft paint from the art store for the yellow, orange, and pink falsies. Green and Blue were such rip offs. Green was watery and I applied about 8 coats of blue paint to my falsies and I wasn’t as happy with the results compared to the others.
