Big, Fat, Bombshell Lashes: Double-Lash Demo

Double-lashes; Ardell 122 over Ardell 110, worn with NYX matte lipstick in Sweet Pink 

A lot of movie starlets stack lashes for a real lush-lashed bombshell look. Unlike wearing a strip of full, showgirl lashes, stacked lashes are more irregular, more wispy, and somehow more subtly-glamorous looking.

Ardell 122s stacked over Ardell 110s.


Step 1: As a base, don't wear too much eye makeup unless you're intentionally going for a drag look. Apply a little neutral or warm shade along the socket line just for definition, as all the attention is going to go to your lash line.


Step 2: Apply black liquid liner along the upper lash line, and then the first strip of false lashes as colse to the roots as you can get. I usually apply them with tweesers, then let them sit for awhile before using my fingers to press down.

 Step 3: Let the first pair of lashes set for a minute, and then prepare your second set of lashes. It's important to use good lash glue (DUO rocks) and lashes with flexible and thin bands when you are using double-lashes. Trying to stack two strips with stiff lash bands is a nightmare.
Gently press the second strip down at the center and make sure it's in the right position before you tuck the outer and inner corners down. This is going to be hard without tweezers, as you'll already be having trouble locating the second strip among all those lashes.

Step 4: Apply black liquid liner over the top once more to straighten out the line. This step is also tricky and you'll likely get liner over your false lashes.

Step 5: When you have the strip down, press firmly so it adheres. Then gently push the inner half of the lash strips downwards, so the outer halves flip out and up slightly, to give a cat-eye effect. Finish with pale yellow or white liner along the water line, and mascara along the bottom lashes.
