When it comes to our lashes, our motto is generally "the longer, the better." We don't even like leaving the house without a healthy coat of mascara, even if the rest of our face is bare. But how far are we willing to go? There's one line that our beauty production assistant, Gabrielle, had yet to cross: faux lashes. When it comes to adding lashes, she had some well-warranted concerns. What if it looks cheesy? Can you feel them sitting on your lid? And, what about the fact that it involves applying glue to such a sensitive area?
So, to help her overcome her faux-lash fear, we called in makeup educator James Vincent. Watch as he teaches Gabrielle how to properly apply them — and trust us, it's not as scary as it sounds.
