Last Saturday the lovely Gabriel Llano taught me how to apply false eyelashes properly.
I’d worn false eyelashes before for shoots & events, but I’d never really attempted to try it alone. I’m a bit of a disaster when it comes to sticking them on: last time I’d tried was a couple of years ago, and the glue just ended up going all over my face, hands & eyes. It was something I wanted to try again, but knowing my luck, one of the eyelashes would lose stickiness midway through dinner.
Gaby asked me to bring him H&M eyelashes, as well as special eyelash glue (he recommends buying a special eyelash glue instead of using the one that comes in the box- it is not expensive & lasts longer). We met at our usual spot- Moncho Moreno’s salon in Madrid- and he taught me how to apply them, as well as customizing them to fit my eye & look more natural.
