Full, long, curly and dark lashes are what every woman dreams to have. Whether you want a real standout evening look, or a more subtle daytime look, make your lashes the envy of all your friends with our top tips to achieving lash perfection.Fake Them (celebrity inspiration – Kim kardashian)
When you look at Kim you can’t fail to notice her amazing lashes. The easiest way to get a standout evening look like Kim is to fake it. False eyelashes look so effective and many of our favorite celebs have created their own line of these little saviors now. Try Eylure Katy Perry Lashes $6.99 or Kardashian Beauty Lash Dash Faux Lashes $6.49. However buying them is the easy part, it’s applying them that’s tricky, so here are some top tips to make it easier:
Measure the false lash against your eyelid to ensure the length is accurate and to limit any discomfort. Put your little finger in your tear duct and go from there.
Consider investing in a separate rubber-based eyelash adhesive as these tend to give better results. Try Ardell Duo Lash Adhesive $3.99. Keep the little freebie glue and pop it in your purse though because it may come in handy if your lashes should come loose.
Allow the glue to go tacky when you apply it to the false lash before attaching it to your eye as this will make it stick better and will prevent slipping and sliding.
Try using a false lash applicator such as Bourjois Faux and Fabulous Lash Applicator $9.39 as this will make the false lash less fiddly and much easier to apply.Curl Them (celebrity inspiration – Jessica Alba)
Jessica Alba does natural glam perfectly. Get the best out of your mascara to create a subtle and natural but nonetheless enviable look like Jessica with these top tips:
Invest in an eyelash curler to curl up your natural naked lashes and therefore open up your eyes. Try Revlon Extra curl Eyelash Curler $6.99.
Consider purchasing a mascara that claims to give a false lash effect because these products really do to help to volumize, lengthen and separate lashes. L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara $8.99 is a good budget buy or choose Two Faced Lashgasm Mascara $21.00 if you can afford to splurge.
Start at the roots and zig-zag upwards to try and coat every pre-curled lash. Turn your wand on the side to successfully coat those awkward little corner lashes.Line Them (celebrity inspiration – Nicole Scherzinger)
Nicole Scherzinger’s look is doll-like with lashings of mascara on both her upper and lower lashes. You can create a false-lash effect without the false lashes to get a look like Nicole’s by following these top tips:
After you have applied two-coats of a false-lash effect mascara such as Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara $6.99, rim both your upper and lower water lines with eyeliner, to add real definition and make your eyelash roots appear thicker. Try a soft kohl pencil like Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner $4.49.
Use an inter-dental brush as opposed to your mascara wand for your bottom lashes as these are smaller and therefore perfect for grabbing and evenly coating those little lower lashes. These Tepe Interdental Brushes $6.99-$23.00 would work perfectly.
Have fun putting these top tips to the test and remember practice makes perfect.
