> Place faux lash on your eyelid to measure the length for your unique eyes. It shouldnt be too long unless you like the droopy marilyn monroe look!
> Cut away the excess with a sharp cuticle scissors.
> Squeeze out some glue or transfer directly to lash bone, one lash at a time.
> Wait 12secs and blow 2 times at the glue.
> Place faux lash as close to own lashes as possible to look natural, gently press on both the ends for 5 secs to secure.
> Draw eyeliner along the lashbone to conceal the lash bone.
> Then do the next side!
> Take your favourite mascara and coat both your original and faux lashes together.
> Curl the lashes with shu uemura eyelash curler!
Voila! You are done! Look pretty & flutter away!

U can apply eyeshadow now.

Note: Eyeshadow application can be b4 or after, doesnt matter.
However, if u are a beginner, i would suggest wear faux lash before eyeshadow becos if u make a mistake, u can remove lash and re-do. If not you might smudge the eyeshadow on your eyelid.

THE BEST lash glues touted by the pro experts,

1. DUO eyelash glue (available at sasa/mac S$16.90-$18.90, lasts about 35 uses.)
DUO is the world's best selling surgical grade lash adhesive, made in the USA.
Available in clear and black. Both are perfect.

** Extra insider tips!:
~ Ideal also for adhering small, neat dressings to scalp and facial wounds, boils, and adhering other body parts, such as moustache! ;p
~ alert all cross dressers!
~ Because the tube opening is quite big, u can squeeze the glue on your palm, and then use any brush end to transfer the glue to your eyelash bone!

2. Body Tools eyelash glue (available at S$9/tube, lasts about 25 uses.)
This small tube of USA-made glue which seems ubiquitous, is usually seen sold together with faux lashes of premium quality such as Make Up For Ever, M.A.C, body tools faux lashes, and other professional cosmetics.
One of the most amazing glue i've used! It can hold very heavy outrageous lashes the whole day without drooping of falling off!
I order a dozen from my source everytime my stocks are running low because i use them on customers, models, brides and myself!

** Extra insider tips:
~ The luminous bluish white glue turns a little blue to indicate that it is time to stick them to ur skin!
~ Has a fine applicator to directly apply to faux lash.
~ Receive it as your free gift when u sign up for my makeup classes in June and July'09!

Beauty Editor's personal FAVE is Body Tools!
Love the gorgeous bluish white liquid, and fragrance free, it becomes very tacky and adheres to my skin securely, even after night's clubbing sweat! Coolest ever!
Removes easily with eye makeup remover. Luve it must have it!

Nasty tinies called Bacteria breeds in your makeup, your food and every consumables.
As the product gets into contact with air, your skin and other substances whatever you might touch, bacteria is attracted and allowed to breed wherever they like.

Its better to be cautious than to have sudden breakouts due to expired makeup on your face right? So breakup with ur 'old' makeup already!

I recommend that you can use my mother's method. Use a black permanent marker fine tip ~ Write down mth & year on the bottom of your makeup on opening ceremony day, ie. 06/09 for jun09. Trust me! I personally tink its a flawless idea!! So start practising it!

Also ZIP it up!
You can keep all those makeup and skincare you hardly use, in a economical ziploc bag (for hygiene reasons), can prolong the life span!

okies... that's all for now!

Hope u benefit the article!
