Video Quick Tip #61 - November 9, 2010

Did you think Sue Heck was an awkward teen in real life, too? Not so!

Starlet Eden Sher from ABC's "The Middle" and Brett got together for a recent photo shoot, and created this vid on applying lash falsies.

For an easy lash boost, you need 3 items:
  • Dura Lash by Ardell - look for the short, black individuals
  • Duo Lash Adhesive in Dark Tone
  • Tweezers
The idea is to add 5-6 lashes to the ends of the lashline - this will amp up your eyes to that perfect almond shape we all crave!

First apply mascara and curl lashes as usual. Dot on a little of the Duo Lash Adhesive near the outer corner of the lashline and work your way out. Apply 3-4 lashes with tweezers along the outer half of the lashline and lightly press onto the glue, stopping where your natural lashes end. Go too far out and they'll look droopy...go too far in and they'll look unrealistic, as your lashes get shorter towards the inside corner.

Look up and down in a mirror to see where any gaps are. Add 2-3 more lashes to beef up and thicken the outer lashline. Let the lashes dry for a minute and then add another coat of mascara and curl lashes to "marry" the real and fake lashes together. Brett loves using L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon. Be sure to really get each lash!

Now flutter those lashes and enjoy pretty!
