Applying eye lashes is something we have spent many hours doing just to have to throw them out in frustration and want to go all nutaral.
Luckily for us we have Kim Kardashian's make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic who has revealed his go to trick for false eye lash application and it makes so much sense.
"When you’re learning to apply them on yourself, especially if you don’t have a steady hand, rest your elbow on some surface in front of you, like a desk," Mario told People.
"It makes a world of a difference."
It sounds obvious, but when you're stood in the bathroom, or sat crossed-legged in front of the bedroom mirror, it's easy to forget how handy a flat surface could be.
He has been Kim's make-up artist for 10 years and also let us know that his favorite lashes are Ardell Individuals.
"I have so many pairs of these because I use it the most," he revealed.
"I don’t love huge lashes and these are the most natural-looking."
This isn't the first time the famous and talented make-up artist has shared his secrets. Last year he also shared that it's a good idea to curl your lashes before reaching for mascara.
"Something simple like curling the lashes can transform a face," he explained.
"A lot of women will just put their mascara on, but giving the lashes a really big curl makes a huge difference, brightening and opening up the eyes."
He also recommended investing in a powder puff instead of a brush.
"Powder applied with a powder puff instead of a brush lasts longer and means you can really work it into areas you just can't with a brush, like the creases around your nose," he explained.
"Also, on some people's skin the bristles of a brush mess up the make-up."
Mario also recommended applying highlighter just above the eyebrows and adding blush to the edge of your cheekbones to "counteract" dark circles.

Obviously Kim can't rock a fat pair of false lashes every day, but sometimes you want a little something extra and when you're in the spotlight so much, we totally get it.
The Ardell individual lashes are perfect to add something a little more subtle to your lashes without going over the top. Individual lashes now come with thicker lash volume. With 60% more lash strands as the regular individual lashes, Ardell Double Individuals allows you to customise what you want your lashes to look like in half the time and we love that.
They can be applied evenly in between your lashes to boost fullness all around, targeted in sparse areas if you're trying to fill those in, or added to the outer ends of your lashes for a wide-eyed effect — customization is key with these.
4. Ardell Magnetic False Lashes
Where to buy: Madame Madeline
Relatively new to the scene, magnetic false lashes are the makeup world’s answer to anyone who’s dealt with the struggle of applying lashes at the precise moment when glue is tacky but not completely set. (And of course, there’s the removal ordeal, which if done improperly, can mean sacrificing a few of your natural lashes in the process.) Formerly a niche category in the world of false lashes, magnetic options are now going fully mainstream with popular mass brands like Kiss and Ardell making versions at price points that won’t break the bank. Magnetic lashes are also becoming available in a wide variety of shapes (i.e. clusters and strips), so they can be a great option no matter what lash look you’re going for.
