How to apply long, luscious eyelashes

Nothing makes your eyes look more dramatic than a set of long, luscious lashes. Our beauty expert, Jessica Metivier, shows how to apply them correctly so they add a touch of glam without taking away from your natural beauty.

"The lashes come kind of adhered to their package, so you want to get them off without damaging them, or pulling on them," Jessica explains. "Curl your natural lashes, then apply one coat of mascara and allow to dry completely. Holding the lashes with tweezers, use a toothpick to apply a thin layer of lash glue."

Another tip is to wait 20 seconds. That allows the glue to get nice and tacky, so it's not sliding around on your eye when you apply it.

Apply the lashes right at your lash line, going from the inner corner to the outer corner.

"Looking down into a hand mirror gives you a great angle to do this," says Jessica.

Using a toothpick or the end of a small make-up brush, carefully push down any sections that don't feel like they're right at the lash line. Once secure, carefully apply another coat of mascara to adhere lashes together.
