Mastering the Art of False Eyelashes
When done correctly, some false eyelashes are good enough to fool mother nature -- it's all in the art of the application. Learn how to do yours now and you'll be batting them with the best 'em by tonight
When to apply liner and mascaraBoth MAC Pro Artist Chantel Miller and celebrity makeup artist Taylor Chang-Babaian say you should apply your eye makeup before applying your false lashes -- including your eyeliner and mascara. (Try Urban Decay Big Fatty Lash, $20, and L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black, $8.95.)
"To ensure the hairs look wispy and light like natural lashes," says Babaian, "do not apply mascara on top of false lashes." If you look in the mirror and think your false lashes are crying out for a coat of mascara, go for a heavier or thicker set of lashes next time instead.
Bonus: Keeping false lashes makeup free helps them last for multiple uses.
