How To Apply False Eyelashes For Beginners!!
4 Easy Steps to Applying Fake Lashes That Don't Look Fake
I have never been able to apply false lashes without having the lash bands lift up at the tear ducts and/or fall off before the end of the night. Beyond technique failure, fake eyelashes often looks heavy and synthetic. I hadn't found a set that felt as chic as the lashes seen on the spring 2015 runways until last week, when NARS released their eight-piece Eye Lash collection.
Who better to teach me—andus—how to apply these lush new falsies, I thought, than Kurtis Dam-Mikkelsen? A classically-trained makeup artist, Mikkelsen is also one of the most exciting new drag personalities on the planet, appearing most recently onRuPaul's Drag Raceas Miss Fame. What I love about Mikkelsen's approach to makeup is his preference for using as few tools as possible. For our first ever how-to with Mikkelsen aka Miss Fame, all that's needed is mascara, a fresh set of lashes, and some Duo Eyelash Adhesive in black.
Step 1: Apply mascara
"Curl natural lashes and comb on a coat of mascara, creating a shelf to support the weight of your falsies." And maybe try to look a little less dead in the eyes than I do?
Step 2: Cut to fit
"Cut the lash band right down the center to create a large individual lash. It's easier to place than a full lash strip, which can become wonky and weird and asymmetrical."
Step 3: Add adhesive
Trace each lash band, one by one, with a laser-thin line of and wait a few moments for the adhesive to dry a bit.
Step 4: Put 'em on
Using your fingers,nottweezers, "place your extension on the outer corner first, hugging that lash line tight." For an eye-lifting effect, Mikkelsen places the outer extension slightly above the natural lashline.
"When you're placing the inner lash extension, avoid going close to the tear duct to give a little bit more width to the eye.
