Your lashes... but bet­ter

Prima (UK) - - Beautiful You -

Eye open­ing and de-age­ing, the ef­fect of false lashes is so pos­i­tive, it’s worth adding them to your rou­tine. Make-up artist Cassie Ste­ward, who cre­ated the looks in these pic­tures, sug­gests strip lashes, as they’re eas­ier and quicker to use than in­di­vid­ual ones. ‘Brands like Ey­lure, Ardell and Kiss all make nat­u­ral-look­ing, pre-glued lashes that add curl and full­ness.’ Here are our pro tips: STEP ONE Line the up­per lash line with Bobbi Brown Per­fectly De­fined Gel Eye­liner (£19). A smudgy line acts as a guide and will hide the join be­tween your lashes and the false ones. After you’ve ap­plied the lashes, use it to dis­guise any gaps. STEP TWO Cassie rec­om­mends trim­ming the in­ner edge of the strip to fit. ‘If they’re too long, they’ll bump the edge of your nose and start to peel off,’ she says.

STEP THREE ‘Curl­ing your lashes and adding a light layer of mas­cara be­fore ap­ply­ing the false set gels them to­gether,’ says Cassie. ‘Fin­ish with a fi­nal coat of mas­cara to se­cure them.’ We love Max Fac­tor Lash Crown Mas­cara (£10.99) be­cause the unique ‘crown’ shaped brush makes it su­per-easy to add vol­ume.
