How to Get Flirty Eyelashes
All right, so we’ve done the lips, we faked the cheekbones. We’ve cheated like a little bit of a highlight going on. So next step, how to fake lashes, thick luscious lashes. I don’t know if you’ve seen some of those eyelash commercials, it ain’t real. Queen Latifah don’t have eyelashes like that. I'm telling you right now. The tip of it is going to go into the glue where I’ll hold it with a tweezer. I'm looking down and we’re going to start in the outer corner and we really want to attach it as close to the lash line as possible. If you can integrate the lashes into your lash line itself and not really above the eyelashes, you know on the skin, you basically going to have to work it in a little bit and then afterwards you're going to brush it through.
So I say three or four, we’re going to apply on each side. And then what I would recommend is just trimming a couple of them half the length so as we get towards the middle of the eye that there is a natural graduation. You know, it should long and flirty on the outside, you know back to business in the middle. What I would recommend is to just let it air out a little bit you know so the glue gets a little bit tacky. It's going to stick a lot better afterwards.
So we’ve just applied about four of five to the outer corner of the eye. Now, we’re like working more in towards the center and it’s kind of like really obvious if we have the same lashes, kind of the same length all throughout the eyes. So now we’re going to just take our individuals and we’re going to take a small scissor and we’re going to trim them off. And I'm not going to cut straight across because if I do that, it's just going to be all one length. So, I'm going to like cut it on the diagonal so that still does that kind of natural haphazard kind of shape. Pick it up. We’ll add thickness to the lash line without making it look overtly too much.
So, we’re finished with the lashes. We’ve really integrated them really well and the base of your lashes that we integrate, they’re not just sticking out all over the place. But if you find that it's a little overt, what we can always do is go back into a shadow. You can do dark brown. If you want to go more graphic, you can go into black, small Kolinsky brush, lightly press along the lash line okay? Don’t go on the skin. Aim at the bottom of the lashes, okay? Aim for the roots of the lashes and that’s the way that you're going to have the most natural looking line going on and it will just conceal the fake lashes that are there. Again, it just makes the eye look a lot more prominent.
The more that we put on the top of the eye, the more that we’re going to like talk about the lashes and up on the lid, the less we’re going to notice anything happening underneath. So if you have a lot of like dark circles, you're a little bit baggy and stuff like that, you want to like spruce yourself up the next morning, put all the attention up on top. Everybody is going to be looking up here and they won’t even notice that you have bags.
