Q: I would love to try a pair of false eyelashes on a night out but I don’t know where to start. Can you help me?

A: False lashes can transform tired eyes into bright, wide-awake peepers instantly, so they’re definitely worth the investment.

The new Pro Lashes by Gary Cockerill, £14.95, come with a day and a night option, perfect for falsie first-timers. Make-up artist Gary used Very Vixen on Eva Longoria (left) recently.

Before applying, measure the lashes against your eye then trim to fit. Apply a light layer of glue, then wait for it to go tacky (about 15 seconds) before pressing on the lashline.
