She's made up the faces of everyone from Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez, and now celebrity makeup artist Ash K Holm is spilling the scoop on the latest and greatest tips, tricks, and must-haves to get the hottest looks on a dime and all by yourself at home.
One hot trend this summer is the color pink. “You can do this trend on the eyes, cheek, or lips," Holm says. "It's all about doing a pop of pink. You don’t have to do this on every single feature." However you decide to do it, Holm advises the importance of elevating this look. "I always do that with Falscara,” she says.
She absolutely loves Falscara, the #1 lash extensions kit in the US, with everything you need to do your lashes at home in three steps. Get any look you're going for by mixing and matching the four various wisps and stacking different lengths and styles. They are not just a strip, which makes them natural looking and super lightweight. Depending on the kit, they last either one day or up to ten days. Falscara works for all eye shapes and sizes and replaces having to go to the salon, which saves so much time and money.
To apply, brush a light coat of bond on and place them right beneath the base of your natural lashes, right above the waterline. Then dab a thin coat of seal and hold them in place. For Falscara 10-day wear, apply a thin line of Overnighter under the wisps, slightly away from the wisp bands, and reapply 2-3 additional coats.
You can find the starter kit at stores like CVS, Walgreens, Ulta, Rite Aid, and falscara.com for around $19.99, and then the 10-day wear kit for about $24.99 at Walmart, Target, Ulta, and H-E-B. You can get refill packs of just the wisps too.
