Makeup Tip #1: Get the look of falsies without falsies!

In-between longer videos, I've decided to share little makeup tips and tricks that have made my life easier. For the first one: Get the look of false eyelashes without actually buying or using false eyelashes! 

All you need:
  • Eyelash curler
  • Mascara
False eyelashes are actually pretty expensive unless you get "cheap" ones or you find a really good deal (like this set that I've been coveting on Amazon.) There are a few quick and easy ways you can fake having fake eyelashes (Inception lashes! ...Anyone else thinking of that awesome movie? No? Moving on), and here is the easiest one for you.

The timing is what's important for this one: Right after you shower. As soon as you hop out of the shower (or bath, if you're a bath person), grab your eyelash curler and curl your eyelashes, then do at least one quick swipe of mascara. The heat and humidity make your lashes warm and pliant, and when you curl them immediately and mascara-it-up, the makeup will seal in that fullness and make your eyelashes look long, thick, and divine. You can always add more coats later on; the important thing is getting that curl and quick mascara done as soon as your feet exit the tub.

Hope this works as well for you as it does for me!
