Tutorial: False Eyelashes

I was asking around the other day whether women are wearing false eyelashes, either daily or special occasion only, when someone asked if I could give her a quick guide - four step max - on how to apply them. Sure! This is for you Meg.
Product: For this tutorial I am using Revlon Fantasy Lengths Complete Kit, #91002 Intensifying. This kit comes complete with glue, which makes life easier.

If you want to get fancy, check out MAC or Shu Uemura's legendary lash bar.

Step 1: Remove lashes carefully. Press on the lash and pull down, not across. Pulling across distorts the form and makes it much harder to apply.

Step 2: Apply a solid bead of adhesive and let it set for 60 seconds or so to get a bit tacky and adhere better.

Step 3: Set the outer corner down as close to lash line as possible. It should butt right up against it.

Step 4: Press. I use a cuticle stick to help get the lashes to the line, as well as pressing firmly against lid. Use caution.

Finished Product. At this point you can add mascara if you like to blend in your natural and the fake lashes.

So what do you think? Will you try it?
