Post + Photography by Amy Nadine, Graphic Design by Eunice Chun

There are lots of emails in our inbox asking how to make smaller eyes look bigger. There are also many asking how to disguise a drooping eyelid. Of course you know our first response is that we should all embrace what we have! But since we know little ways to help, we’re happy to share! Revisit our Big Eyes Tutorial, Asian Eye Focus Tutorial and Hooded Lid Tutorial first, then take this into consideration too. If your eyes are on the smaller side, try making the whole eye area bigger. And one way is by exaggerating the lashes. (more…)

EASY STREET

Never before has there been an easier way for even the biggest novice to apply false lashes. I stumbled upon these a couple weeks ago at CVS (ok, honestly I know every single aisle and product there so there’s no chance for something new to sneak by me) and I was so irritated that I didn’t think of them first! So genius. Why? Because individual lashes take practice and have a tendency to turn on their sides in wild directions (dodgy little things) and lash strips tend to either stick up at the corners or look too costume-y. But these little beauties are fool proof and look amazing.  (more…)

MINIM-EYES ME!

Every now and then I love to sneak these little lovely mini lashes along the bottom lashline of my clients’ eyes. They just add a little fullness and balance, especially when I’ve used false lashes on the top lashline. It’s super easy to do and only takes a few minutes. Here’s how:

  1. Grab a pack of mini lashes at your local beauty supply store or online here. With slanted tweezers (or your fingers), gently pull out a lash cluster so it’s ready to go.
  2. Add a dollop of lash glue to the top of the package (or the back of your hand) and allow two full minutes for the glue to get tacky (this helps prevent the lash clusters from turning on their sides or sliding down).
  3. Pick up the lash cluster with your tweezers by pinching the end of one of the lashes. Turn it “backwards” or opposite of how you found it in the packaging then dip the knot of the cluster directly in the glue.
  4. With the cluster still backwards so that it curves inward towards your skin, slide each lash cluster in between your own lashes and place it directly on the lash line. I sometimes do 4 clusters on the outside corners of each eye, or I really go for it with 8 clusters all the way across each eye.
