It’s a tick models use (Picture: fauxnicolerose)
Want to look and feel put together, without delving too deep into your make up bag? All you need is a black kohl pencil.
This trick is apparently used by models at castings to fake fuller lashes when makeup isn’t allowed.
Nicole Elliott, a beauty TikToker, said: ‘It’s how models get that no makeup makeup look… You’re not really supposed to wear makeup to castings.’
But, Nicole says this hack is often used – and you may want to use it on other ‘no makeup’ days.
First, you ‘messily line your bottom water line’, then wash your face.
Yes, we know this seems counterintuitive. This removes most of what you applied – but leaves just enough to make your lashes look that bit more defined and full.
Nicole said of her ‘thick’ lashes: ‘I have nothing on my face and it looks like I have insanely dark lashes.
‘If you’re not into wearing makeup, this is the perfect trick.’
Someone commented: ‘my mom my grandmother and me use to apply “kohl” at bed time and wash it the next day to have this look, it’s like a family tradition’.
Another wrote: ‘I swearrrrr god I do the same it last the whole day without my eyes get watering best hack ever’.
It’s worth a go on low maintenance days.
