2. Pick!
Now its time to pick your lash of choice ($10 -$12, popbeauty.co.uk). After choosing a lash set, try them on for size. You might need to trim the lashes slightly to fit your lids.

3. Practice!
Do a few dry runs before applying the glue – practice makes perfect!

4. Prepare!
Apply glue to the rim of fake lashes and let dry for 20-30 second before applying the lashes.  Slowly apply the roots of the false lashes to the roots of your own, as close to your natural lash line as possible. Start by affixing the inner corner of the eye and then gently press down following along the lash line to the outer corner. You might want to use Shu Uemera eyelash glue ($8.50, beauty.com).

5. Perfect!
A small gap between your lash line and the faux lash line can easily be camouflaged with black eyeliner – POP’s My One Liner ($18, popbeauty.co.uk) or a nice waterproof gel liner would be your best bet and it offers the finishing touch to your lash application. Draw the liner on top of the faux lash line to make it melt seamlessly into your own and then follow with one layer mascara over both of them, Ta-da! Flawless and fluttering eye framers!

    They drive me nutballs, but do look awesome; just not worth it for everyday – I only use them when going out

    LOVE lashes for a special occasion! If you are wary of trying FULL lashes, you can get “individuals” and try them out! They apply the same way, but it’s nice just to put 2 or 3 on the outside corner of your eyes… It gives a bit of a sexy “60′s cat eye” look… Thanks 4 the great LASHES tips!
