Changing Eyelash Colour


So I'm gonna be Cosplaying Merida from Brave sometime this con season and I have a problem that's probably totally minor, but is the kind of thing that would really bother me.

I have basically everything figured/planned out, except this one thing: Merida has ginger eye lashes. How the holy hell do I do this? (Even if I could find them in the right color, I don't think fake lashes would help in this case, since my natural eyelashes are dark brown.)

So...tutorials, advice, ideas, whatever. Just help me.

I actually have ginger eye lashes and they make me look so swashes out if I don't so dark.

You want to get a pair of thick natural lashes and paint them orange/ginger with acrylic paint in thin coats to get the the shade to want.

Ye will want these as if you go full with a color they much more notice.

For you own lashes you have two options. one it to get a white mascara and spooly.
You wan to to one coat of white to block out the shade of your lashes.
You then want to mix the white with a powder orange eyeshadow. Use the extra spooly to apply the mascara to your lashes.

The other option is your natural lashes are shorter then the false ones if to use a brown mascara to light them up a bit, but still darker your lash line at the roots.

Apply you false lashes and comb together with you real ones.
