Thick, glamorous, look-at-me lashes were seen all over the fall runways from Gucci to Saint Laurent — and beyond. At Rochas, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni used three lash sets per eye and at Gucci, makeup pro Pat McGrath applied falsies to the top and bottom lash lines for a 60s-inspired look. Faux lashes are a great way to enhance your look and open up the eyes. For a bolder eye, lash strips or extensions are great, but that requires lots of practice and a semi-permanent option. For an everyday look, individual lash sets are the way to go. Plus, they are easy to apply which is ideal if you are a first-timer. Here, we show you how to get a striking set of feathery lashes that you can (easily) wear no matter the occasion.
