Tuesday QuickTip #39 – September 1, 2009

Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria and Rihanna-- all have rocked the little spider-like sprigs known as individual lashes on the red carpet. But how do they work? How do you apply them with ease? How do they not look silly?

There probably isn't another beauty product on the planet that has caused so many questions. Brett to the rescue!

  • Always buy the shortest length available. Brett loves Andrea Perma-Lash in short black.
  • Use tiny cuticle scissors to trim down the first row of lashes in the pack--these will be used on the inner corner of your eyes where the lashes are naturally shorter.
  • Pick up individual lashes close to the base with precise tweezers, lightly dot on lash glue, and blow on them before applying to lashes.
  • Apply the longer lashes to the outer edges of your lashline first and 'picket fence' them right in with your natural lashes heading inward and using the shorter falsies on the inner corners.
  • Brett recommends using Duo waterproof glue - the dark tone is perfect for evening. Try the clear or brown tones for day.

And there you have it. Red carpet lashes made easy!
