If your eyelashes are a bit straight, Crouch suggests using a curling tool so that they sit better next to the faux lashes. Shorter, fuller lashes add more drama, while individual strands look more natural. If you choose a lash strip, then measure it against your eye and cut off any excess from the end. Add a line of glue along the base, let it dry a bit so it's tacky, and then apply it to your lash line, starting from the inner corner.
"If there's going to be any kind of crying, it's good to wear eyelashes," Crouch said. “It looks good in photos, and since it stays put, you won't have to worry about anything running." She finished by coating both real and faux lashes with waterproof mascara to blend them together.
