Kim Kardashian Eyelashes
If you envy Kim Kardashian eyelashes that are long and full but look more natural than mascara, your answer is individual “faux” lashes. Unlike full fake lashes, individuals are small lash pieces you apply exactly where and how you want to. They come in different lengths—short, medium, long—and can be found at most drugstores. If you’d like to try them (and you should!) here’s the individual lash “how-to”:
We turned to Celebrity Makeup Artist & Beauty Blogger Robyn Tamura for her Kim Kardashian Eyelash application Tips:
- Squeeze a bit of lash glue onto a tissue or the back of your hand.
- Using TweezerMan tweezers, grab a single lash piece then scarcely dip the lash tip into glue.
- Allow the glue to dry on the lash tip for a few seconds.
- Delicately place the lash on the lash line where you want length and fullness.
- Keep applying pieces until you get the total lash look you want. Use as few or many as necessary.
- Use the same technique to apply lashes to your other eye. Try to achieve a balanced look.
- Once eye lashes are in place, apply a coat of Laura Mercier Mascara.Voila! The lashes you’ve always been looking for.
Important PRO Tips:
- If you find the kind you lash you bought are too long, you can use small scissors to clip them shorter.
- Be sure not to clip flat and straight across, clip unevenly to keep them looking natural.
- Use a steady hand to place the pieces just right because the glue dries quickly and holds firmly at the angle you place it.
“Before and during my years at Smith College I worked at Clinique. When I graduated, I went to theEstée Lauder Companies in NYC and worked for the Origins, Estée Lauder and Clinique brands—eventually becoming Clinique’s Director of Strategy and Creative Development and Global Beauty Director. In this position I developed programs and taught makeup application throughout Europe and Asia, in the Middle East and South Africa. My experience at ELC also included strategic branding, executive training and collaborating with marketing, product development, communications and sales to launch new programs.
Today I have my own beauty consulting business based in NYC, Shizué Beauty. I work on global beauty projects and as a makeup artist for many different companies. My clients have included Giorgio Armani, Chanel, J&J, philosophy, Vogue and Guggenheim Productions. The work is rewarding and fun - and I get to work with so many great people, in various brands and capacities.
My aim here is to provide makeup tips and ideas that are informative, helpful and fun. Makeup is not a serious endeavor, it’s to be played with and enjoyed! Please let me know any feedback or thoughts or ideas you may have. Because while I do enjoy this for myself, I want you to enjoy it too.”
