Get Kim Kardashian's Eyelashes

With the much anticipated wedding of Kris Humphries to Kim Kardashian, I thought it would be an ideal time to talk about eyelashes. Let's be honest they can often look like hairy spider legs growing from her waterline!!!

Kim is definitely known for her thick dark lashes. Without a doubt she is an avid fan of eyelash extensions and on the red carpet it seems she also places a strip lash to bulk them up. I think she looks great, and I too, LOVE a great lash.

If like many, the maintenance of eyelash extension isn't too appealing then the following simple tips will help you get those sexy lashes.

*Place a coat or two of mascara on your natural lash.
*Try to select strip lashes with an invisible flexible back (see picture). this makes it easier for you to manoeuvre along the contour of your eye.
*I strongly recommend not using the glue provided in the lash packs. Instead try using the DUO Adhesive in clear. It comes out white but after a few minutes it dries to clear and will last for ever.
*Place a thin layer of the glue along the strip and wait a minute or so for the glue to go little tacky. This is probably the most important step and will make all the difference. It ensures it sticks and doesn't slide around while you're trying to set it in.
*With a tweezer (or your fingers) place it as close to the lash line as possible.
*Once it's set take your thumb and pointy finger and gently press your natural and false lash together to slightly bond them. This will assist in making them look natural and not separated from each other.
* Finally pop some mascara on your bottom lashes and you're right to go.

It may take a few try's to get the hang of it but before you know it you'll be addicted!
