Up the wow-factor (and ensure you look great in photos) with these attractive and easy-to-apply fake eyelashes. 

Regardless of what costume you're wearing for Halloween this year (Hillary! Belle! Wonder Woman!), incorporating a pair of false eyelashes into your look is a surprisingly easy way to up the drama (not to mention, guarantee that you'll look amazing in pictures). Before you run the other way, know that applying fake lashes is easier than you might think. Yes, the beauty move sure seems intimidating, but with a few easy tips and a little practice, you just might want to wear a set of lashes everyday (ok, at least for big occasions!).

While there are endless fake lash options (natural, over-the-top, colorful, bejeweled, the list goes on...), you apply them all the same way. What you'll need: mascara, a set of false lashes, and eyelash adhesive. First thing's first: Curl and apply mascara. Doing this creates some weight for the fake lashes to sit on. Next, hold the lash strip up to your eye and, using cuticle scissors, trim away any excess length. Another trick? Cut the lash directly in half and apply it in two sections, making it easier to apply than one long strip. Trace a thin line of lash glue along the lash band. Now—this is important—wait 30 seconds for the glue to get tacky. If you put the lashes on while the glue is too wet, they'll slide. Lastly, using your fingers (they offer more control than tweezers), place the strip onto your lids. Start at the outer corner and work in, setting the band as close to your lash line as possible for a seamless finish. Voila! Now, to help you determine which set of falsies is right for you, read on.
