How To Get False-Look Lashes Like Kim Kardashian

How to Layer Mascara For a False-Lash Effect

Sometimes one mascara isn't enough to get the faux-lash effect. Don't settle for second best, though. Double down on your formulas instead. Combine a lengthening lash-enhancer with a thickening formulation, or top a defining mascara with a curling one. The combinations are endless. For lashes even Kim Kardashian will envy, find a few top mascara pairings when you keep reading.

Thickening + Lengthening = Faux False Lashes
For a full set of falsies without the glue, reach for this volumising and heightening combination. Focus the thickening formula at the root of lashes using the classic wiggle technique. Then, turn the lengthening brush vertically, stroking upward. Get the look with: Benefit They're Real! Mascara ($38) and Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara in #1 Black ($42) 

Defining + Curling = Baby-Doll Lashes
Looking to get the wide-eyed look of a Barbie doll? First, reach for a thin wand so that you can separate every lash (a shortened brush works well too). Then, top it with a curved brush that will bend lashes up and away. Get the look with: Clinique Bottom Lash ($28) and Lanôcome Hypnôse Doll Eyes Mascara ($54)

Volumising + Waterproof = Long Lasting Lashes
All waterproof mascaras are not made equal; some of the best formulas don't come with the long-lasting benefits. Start with a volumising option, and then swipe on one coat of waterproof mascara to lock it in. Get the look with: Rimmel Volume Flash The Max Mascara ($11.34) and Models Own Ultra Waterproof Mascara ($10.17)

Any Formula + Special Effect = Highly Pigmented Lashes
Coloured eyelashes are hard to achieve if you have dark hair. But you can cheat the look with this two-step shadow trick. Use your favourite mascara, and while it's still wet, quickly apply a highly pigmented powder with a fan brush. Everyone will envy your neon makeup for sure.
