Lashes are without a doubt one of the single most beautifying features on your face, and making them as lusciously thick and long as possible is a surefire way to get noticed. This Homecoming, follow our super-easy steps to apply falsies and show up to the dance with dramatically gorgeous, fluttery, flirty lashes. --Angel
Step 1: Pick the Lashes
Choose individual lashes for a subtle-yet-noticeable look. You can add one or two or several if you choose, it's totally up to you! Try Ardell Duralash Eyelash Kit ($4) -- it comes with 56 individual lashes (in case you mess up) that are permanently curled.
Step 2: Prep Your Glue
Squeeze out a blob of glue to dip your lashes in. Most kits come with glue, but you can also buy it separately. Shu Uemura (known around the world for their amazing eyelash curler) offers Eyelash Adhesive ($8.50) that is suitable for contact lens wearers. Or try Love My Lashes Adhesive ($25.95) -- the formula is black, which will actually be invisible.
Step 3: Apply Lashes
Use a pair of tweezers to grab the tips of the lashes, then dip the bottom third into the glue, just enough to coat. Now press the lashes on top of your own so that they stick to your real lashes and your eyelid. HINT: Start at the outer corner of one eye and work your way to the middle. It also helps to keep your eye as open as you possibly can.
Step 4: Finish
Make sure the glue is completely dry, then apply liquid eyeliner to your lashline (this helps to disguise any noticeable glue) and your favorite mascara (this helps the falsies to blend in with yours as well as hold them in place). Try Almay Intense i-Color Liquid Liner in Black Pearl ($7) with Longcils Boncza Longcilclassic Cake Mascara in Noir ($30) for a deliciously glamorous result.
