You've perfected eye artistry; intricate shadows are your specialty and winged liner is a breeze, but what about lashes? False eye lashes are nothing new. Almost every female celeb wears them — some to subtly fill in their own lashes and others for a dramatic look. Beauty vloggers like Jaclyn Hill and celebs across the board, from Vanessa Hudgens to Halsey, have taken eye-exaggeration a step further with false lashes that transform eyes from amazing to immaculate. Isn't it about time you hopped on the trend?
Long lashes are a universal symbol of beauty. Countless surveys show that men are more attracted to women with beautiful eyes, and eyelashes enhance the eyes. Long lashes help increase self-esteem. When we look good, our confidence and self-esteem is boosted and we feel good about ourselves. It's no wonder why celebs and fashionistas wear longer lashes where they can take advantage of many more options for applying makeup for photographs.

4 Easy Steps to Applying Fake Lashes That Don't Look Fake
Step 1: Apply mascara
"Curl natural lashes and comb on a coat of mascara, creating a shelf to support the weight of your falsies." And maybe try to look a little less dead in the eyes than I do?
Step 2: Cut to fit
"Cut the lash band right down the center to create a large individual lash. It's easier to place than a full lash strip, which can become wonky and weird and asymmetrical."
Step 3: Add adhesive
Trace each lash band, one by one, with a laser-thin line of Duo and wait a few moments for the adhesive to dry a bit.
Step 4: Put 'em on
Using your fingers, not tweezers, "place your extension on the outer corner first, hugging that lash line tight." For an eye-lifting effect, Mikkelsen places the outer extension slightly above the natural lashline.
"When you're placing the inner lash extension, avoid going close to the tear duct to give a little bit more width to the eye. If it's too close, it makes your eyes feel like they're narrower and even cross-eyed."
