One simple, yet stunningly effective way to glam up your look this holiday season is with false eyelashes.

With the right lashes and a little practice, you will be amazed at the difference in your look, and marvel at the heaps of compliments you'll receive (we know this because we experimented with lashes here at Dempsey for our holiday party and they were a MASSIVE hit!)

Step 1:

Apply your makeup as desired, however rather than your regular liquid winged liner, tight-line the eyes with a black Kohl eyeliner pencil instead. This will help blend the false lashes with the natural lash line, and will allow the adhesive to adhere better to the skin.

Step 2:

Carefully remove one false lash from the package and measure the lash band to your eye with the longer lashes on the outside and the shorter on the inside, clipping the outside corner of the lash band with scissors if the lash band is too long for your eye.

Step 3:

Hold the lash band from the lashes and place an even, thin line of eyelash adhesive along the band. Allow the adhesive to become tacky (usually between 30 seconds to 1 minute).

Step 4:

Align the lash band as close to your natural lash line as possible and press the middle of the lash band into your eyelid. Then, press the inner corner, then the outer corner into your eyelid, and then finally push the entire band into place.

Step 5:

Finish off the look with a bit of black liquid eyeliner and some extra mascara if desired. Proceed to bat your fancy, fluttery lashes all night long!
