How to: The Simplest DIY Red Feather Lashes
In fact, they are so easy, you can already tell how to do this by this photo below (sorry about the grimy glue hardened lash bands. I took this photo after the shoot after I’d taken them off and not before!)
Just cut off the ends of the feathers where the hair is soft and undefined and then pull off a section of feather on each side as below. You can already stick them on the falsies as they are. But I wanted the feathers to be untidy and more curled. So I took a pair of scissors and pulled the feather lengthwise across the blade like how you would curl craft paper. If you want them neat, put the feather in between two pieces of cloth and use a curling iron to iron the feather into a curl.
If you have access to Daiso Japan, they have the cheapest (SGD$2!) angel feathers or craft feathers of different colours for you to play with. Here I have red, neon green and neon yellow but I’ve seen them carry the electric blue ones as well.
I have yet to try making the lash entirely out of feather because I haven’t yet found a way to make a coloured mascara that truly stands out with colour than a dull coloured coat which doesn’t turn up on camera. A pure red feather lash will look awkward on my black lashes with nothing to disguise them.
Made any no brainer red feather lashes yourself? How did those turn out? 🙂
