FAKE IT

Women's Health Australia - - BEAUTY & STYLE -

Move those fake lashes from your spe­cial-oc­ca­sion kit to your ev­ery­day beauty bag. Rea­son? They’re now the new norm. “It’s not sur­pris­ing to see some­one wear­ing falsies and jeans,” says Dior brand am­bas­sador and celebrity make-up artist Daniel Martin.

TRY IT: Go for a set of doll-like false lashes. Cut the ends of a medi­um­length strip so it fits your eye width, dot on the glue and lay it across your nat­u­ral lash line. Or you can fake fakes, says Martin. Curl your lashes, wig­gle a vo­lu­mis­ing mas­cara wand across the base of your lashes to build thick­ness, and then put lash primer “just on the tips of your lashes, wait a minute, and ap­ply mas­cara again only where the primer is”, he says. And since there’s some­thing fiercely fem­i­nine about wide-eyed lashes, turn things up a notch with rosy, just-jogged-5km cheeks and berry lips. #win­ning
