How to Make Your Eyelashes Look Like Falsies

By Cee Donohue

Thick and lustrous eyelashes can enhance your eyes and make them pop, and many women use fake eyelashes to create this look. The good news is that you can make your eyelashes look as amazing as false ones with just a few strokes of your mascara brush. The key to creating this look is extra application of mascara. Forget the glue and worrying that your eyelashes might come off, a little extra mascara and you will have the falsies you've always wanted.

Curling your lashes makes them look longer.

Step 1

Curl your lashes with the eyelash curler. If you already have eyelashes that naturally curl, the curler is optional. However, if you have lashes that don't curl, it will enhance the volume and make the eye pop more by using a curler. Eyelash curlers also make the lashes look longer. Put your lashes into the curler and press down firmly and slowly. Hold for a few seconds and release.

Step 2

Use a sharpened black eyeliner pencil and create a thin line across your lid directly above your lashes. Extend it slightly beyond the lid to the outer corner of your eye. Using an eyeliner is optional, but it adds a thickness to the base of the lashes that looks similar to false ones. Apply one coat of a mascara to your upper lashes. There is a wide variety of mascaras on the market to choose from. Consider a volume enhancing mascara or a lengthening one. Wiggle the brush across your lashes to get a thick and equal application.

Step 3

Apply a second coat of the first mascara to your upper lashes. Allow it to dry for a few seconds without allowing it to completely dry. Apply the second coat of mascara and wiggle the brush across the lashes for maximum effect. Wait a few seconds and apply another coat of the second mascara to your lashes. Bottom lashes are optional. If you use mascara on your bottom lashes, you typically only need one coat. Make sure mascara is evenly distributed along the lashes to avoid clumps.
