False eyelashes get a “drag queen” bad rap, but the truth is, many of the newer ones are subtle enough to wear everyday (try Revlon Fantasy Lengths Glue On Eyelashes, $4). To apply, first squeeze out some invisible lash glue onto the back of your hand. Carefully pick up the lashes and dip the base over the glue. Wait a couple of seconds for the glue to become tacky, and then gently press the base of the false lashes as close to your lashline as possible. After letting them dry for a couple minutes, marry the faux lashes to your real ones by curling with an eyelash curler.
