Watch Celeb Makeup Artist Daniel Martin Recreate Elisabeth Moss’ Flirty Lash Look

If you are going straight from work to a night out, you’ll likely lug your makeup bag along with you for a few touchups before you leave your desk, but celeb makeup artist Daniel Martin (the pro behind Meghan Markle’s #flawless wedding day beauty look) is here with a pro tip that requires hardly any product at all. Using the super chic look he created for client Elisabeth Moss at the 2018 Golden Globes as a guide, Martin, who serves as creative color consultant at Honest Beauty and a Dior Beauty ambassador, shows Us how a few strategically placed false eyelashes can transform an entire look.

Calling the simple add-on an “easy way to switch things up,” Martin says swapping your makeup kit for a set of lashes from the drugstore is a great way to “change the symmetry and dynamic of the face.” He likes to use Ardell Accent Lashes on the outer corners for an immediate eye-opening effect that is ideal for elongating round-shaped peepers.

For a mess-free application, he places a bit of glue on his hand and applies it to the falsie using the back of a makeup brush. He says the key to making them adhere is allowing the glue to get a little tacky before attempting to secure them to the lash line. And if the glue causes your top and bottom lashes to stick together, he likes to use a clean mascara wand to lift and separate.

If you are looking for a one-and-done update to your daytime beauty look, you can literally apply the lashes and go. But, if you’d like a little more oomph, Daniel likes to coat the lashes (real and faux) with a jet black mascara like the Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara + Primer and then add a thin line of the Dior Diorshow On Stage Liquid Eyeliner in Matte Black for a seamless finish.
