When applying your makeup look, many of us choose to play up just one thing – our eyes, lips, or even cheeks. Sticking to this route, we’re of course in love with the latest va-va-voom lash look, with pale pink lips to match. This sex kitten style can be quite simple once you master the task of false lashes. Although daunting to some, others find them to be addicting, and a simple tube of mascara can never again add up.

Achelle Dunaway of e.l.f. Cosmetics shows us how to apply false lashes and complete the look with a subtle pink lip below.

Step 1:

Curl your lashes and then size the false lashes to your eye. Hold up the lashes and start where your normal lashes start. You don’t want them to go too far, so you’ll want to trim them to fit. Don’t assume that both eyes will be the same size!

Step 6:

Let the glue sit on the lashes for a few seconds so it gets tacky, then glue them at the base of your natural lashes facing downward. Hold the corners in place until the glue sets.
