Let your eyes do all the talking with a dramatic look that speaks volumes. Follow these expert tips to achieve a glamorous false lash look without all the fuss.
Set the Tone
To showcase a dramatic eye, always start with a flawless canvas. Apply True Match™ Super-Bendable Compact Makeup to areas that require a little extra coverage. This formula goes on like a liquid, so it delivers a weightless, natural finish that won’t cake into fine lines around the eyes. Set foundation with matching or translucent powder to create an even, smudge-proof surface.
Next, apply a neutral shadow for daytime, or a darker shade like Colour Riche Eye Shadow in Cookies and Cream for nighttime. Use a flat shadow brush to pat the color onto the lid, and a fluffy brush to blend at and above the crease. Line the upper and lower lash lines with a sharpened pencil liner, increasing density as you move outward. For a smokier effect, use Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner.
For maximum impact, begin by combing your lashes, then curling them in three places: the roots, the midpoints and the tips. Then, apply Voluminous False Fiber Lashes™ mascara at the base of your lashes, wiggling the wand from side to side as you sweep up through the ends. The advanced polymer blend allows for buildable volume while super-fine nylon and rayon fibers sculpt, boost and extend. Be sure to wipe any excess mascara on a tissue before applying.
For ultimate fringe flare, take a few cues from the pros. Apply two additional coats, allowing each layer to dry in between, and don’t forget to cover those small inner-eye lashes. The final touch requires switching it up: top off only the tips of the lashes with a water-resistant formula like Voluminous Waterproof Mascara, catching the hairs with the wand from the top and following the curl. Water-resistant mascara will block moisture, prevent smearing, and ensure your curl stays put.
