I'm working up the courage to have a fling with fake eyelashes. Any tips?Lisa Rolls
Sonia Kashuk's Leading Lady Holiday Eye Set, $14.99, is pretty much novice-proof: It includes a pair of jewel-rimmed falsies, a tube of lash adhesive, an eyelash applicator (herein lies the genius), and black liquid eyeliner. Allow the glue a minute to dry, then sex up with a little liner (it covers up the glue). Finish with a coat or two of mascara to bind your real lashes to the fake ones then peel off before bed.
I think I'm in love. I used my mother's original epilady, and WOW! Please tell me there are modern-day epilators that work as well.Kerrie Keegan
Yes ma'am, and you need go only as far as your computer: www.epiladyusa.net. The newedition Epilady, starting at $29.99, employs multiple tweezers attached to rotating discsrather than the antiquated vibrating coilsto pluck hairs meticulously and lessen the ouch factor.
