Mascara Tutorial: How to Fake False Eyelashes with your Real Lashes

Bold, beautiful eyelashes. Every girl wants them, and for good reason. Let’s just say if I HAD to pick only one item of makeup to put on for the rest of my life (scary!), my choice would be mascara. Unless you already have naturally dark, thick, long lashes, it makes the world of difference. See for yourself!

Because I wore stage makeup through my dance team days, I especially LOVE the look of fake eyelashes. I’ve also seen people with eyelash extensions, which are costly but look awesome for a few weeks. Still, they’re harder to maintain, can be really expensive, and you have to worry about them coming off or irritating your eyes. I personally only like to wear fake eyelashes for very special occasions. But as you can see in the picture above, I’ve found a way to achieve the look with my natural lashes!

For this more manageable everyday “fake eyelash” look, checkout the Style Trials video on how to fake the false eyelash look with your real lashes.  I cover my favorite mascara, and the tricks of applying it.

 As I mention in the video, although I’ve tried a lot of different mascaras, Maybelline’s Falsies is the one that I’m always buying more of. I love that you can keep layering the techniques I showed as much as you want to, which builds up the volume and length of the natural lashes even more (thus amplifying the false eyelash look). With this “building” technique, I suggest letting the lashes dry or at least get tacky in between coats. But even if you need to do one quick coat and run out the door, it’s still more effective than other mascaras I’ve tried.

So couple of questions for you.

1.) Have you tried this mascara before or do you have your own favorite you can suggest?

2.) If you could only put on one item of makeup, what would it be and why?

I love hearing from you. Leave me a comment on this post and let me know! 🙂
