Anyone else watch the Academy Country Music awards last night? Carrie Underwood’s makeup that she wore during her performance was perfection, classic red lips with big full lashes. As part of my Beauty Series, I’m excited to show you how you can get the perfect false eyelashes in just 3 minutes, pair this with the red lips and winged eyeliner tutorial to recreate Carrie’s look.
I love using the individual lashes, especially if you are a beginner they are easier to apply. For my look I used the Eylure Individual Lashes Combo Pack – 3 medium length lashes in the outer corners and 2 small length lashes in the middle (like the Jessica Alba picture).
Tip: If you have rounder eyes like me, focus the lashes on the outer corners to create length. If you have more almond shape eyes, place in the center, to create openness.

Products I used (cost $8):
Apply your eyeliner and one coat of mascara. Avoid using waterproof mascara, it tries to quickly.
Add drop of eyelash adhesive to back of hand and wait 2 full minutes for it to become tacky.
With tweezers pick up lashes (pulling away from you), dab it into glue and apply along lash line. The lashes should sit on top of your natural lashes.
Wait for lashes to dry and add finishing coat of mascara (if needed), this would be a good time to apply a layer of waterproof mascara.
If you want to see how to apply full set of lashes, leave a comment below and we can work that into an upcoming video shoot!
