Contrary to what you might think, fake lashes can weigh down your eyelids and create too thick lash lines. Instead, try Nicki Minaj’s makeup artist’s tip and curl lashes right at the root for 20-30 seconds before applying mascara. While our instinct is to reach for a dark eyeliner, Dougherty cautions against black for a wide-eyed look. “Instead of black use a nude pencil on the inner line of your lid, called the waterline,” she says while advising we choose a pencil that’s “as close as possible to your own skin tone” in order to create the image of a wider eye. You’ll instantly look more awake and alert.
Listen in for all the insider tricks, expert advice and all the products & treatments to try as Dougherty gives us definitive answers to the top 10 most asked beauty questions on the Internet.
