False Lash Tips from a Celebrity MakeUp Artist

This weekend, I finally had a chance to wear the KISS Lashes that I received in my Influenster J'Adore VoxBox. I had been saving them for a special occasion (a night in Atlantic City,) but I quickly learned that I didn't need to! These lashes are definitely called "Looks So Natural" for a reason. They just add a little bit of length and a little bit of thickness so you can really wear them for any occasion.

Now, it's been a while since I've worn false lashes so fortunately, last week @KissProducts had an hour-long Twitter Takeover by Celebrity Makeup Artist, Kristofer Buckle. He's worked with stars like Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. His work has been featured in magazines like Allure and Vogue, advertising campaigns for Christian Dior and Dooney & Bourke, on the red carpet and in movies like Burlesque. So basically... I'M TAKING ANY AND ALL BEAUTY ADVICE HE GIVES!

I've compiled Kristofer's best lash tips from the Twitter Takeover and even got my own question answered!!!
  • "Lashes are reusable, so store them in the tray! You can use them multiple times if treated with care."
  • "If your brows are lower go with a shorter lash style. Better proportion!"
  • "Every pair of lashes has a right eye and a left eye!"
  • "Eyelash glues have latex, but if you have an allergy to latex Kiss makes a latex-free glue..so enjoy!"
  • "It's worth the wait! Wait at least 30 seconds before applying to eye to allow the glue to get tacky for better adhering."
The Twitter Takeover was super informational and by following these tips, I was able to apply the lashes so easily and effortlessly. In fact, I forgot I had them on, slept in them and didn't take them off until the following day. I'm not joking when I say they still looked perfect the next morning! 

So follow these tips and rock some fierce falsies whenever your heart desires!
