Starlet Eden Sher from ABC’s “The Middle” and celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman got together for a recent photo shoot, and worked together on creating the ultimate fabulous lash look.
Lashes are all over the news lately — and are an amazing way to instantly amp your look. According to Brett, it’s easier than you may think to apply the ever-famous 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
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 outerlashline. 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!
