1. Prep!
First, prep your lashes by curling them. You might want to use Japonesque ergo grip eyelash curler ($13.49, ulta.com).

Once that’s done, apply one layer of mascara. POP Lash Kapow Mascara ($18.50, popbeauty.co.uk), freezes lashes into place, blacking them out and keeping them curled all day!

Always apply black eye liner to the inner rims of the lashes, this intensifies the effect of the falsies, POP’s In Liner ($16, popbeauty.co.uk) has been designed specifically for this purpose – comfortable to apply and no smudging, just the way we like it.

    LOVE lashes for a special occasion! If you are wary of trying FULL lashes, you can get “individuals” and try them out! They apply the same way, but it’s nice just to put 2 or 3 on the outside corner of your eyes… It gives a bit of a sexy “60′s cat eye” look… Thanks 4 the great LASHES tips!
