Quick Tip: Falsies (Eyelashes, Of Course!)

Give your eyes a boost quickly and easily with false lashes—without looking like a show girl.

You can use just about any set of false eyelashes; I prefer ones made of human hair. Cut a piece about a quarter of an inch long off of the outer portion of both the right and left lashes. Since some lashes have graduated hairs (the "lashes" are shorter toward the inner corner of the eye) make sure you cut the same portion from each lash. Save the long portion of lash for next time.

Squeeze a small bead of eyelash adhesive onto the tip of a toothpick. Hold one of the lash sections gently with tweezers and use the toothpick to lightly draw a line of glue on the edge of the lash. Wait about 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky, then apply the lash to the outer portion of your top lash line, closest to your temple.

You'll find this method virtually foolproof, much easier than applying a full strip of lashes and less time consuming than applying individual lashes. It lifts the eyes and makes them appear larger and more open, yet it is subtle enough for daily wear!
