One Big Thing You're Doing Wrong When Applying Fake Eyelashes

Fake it until you make it.

Applying fake eyelashes is tricky, but the payoff is worth it. A set of thick, fluttery lashes can completely upgrade any look. If only there were an easy button for putting them on.

Beyond springing the cash for semi-permanent lash extensions, which are put on by a professional and last about three to four weeks, there are a few pointers we can employ to help ease the frustration of applying the falsies (while also making sure they look as real as possible).

Our friends over at The Zoe Report have created a short video tutorial to help us out. The biggest trick we learned from the clip is to ditch the strip lashes. Instead use lash clusters -- they are easier to manipulate, and blend in more naturally with your real lashes. Done and done.
