Michelle Pfeiffer has been in the acting game for a long time (since the '70s, to be exact). That, of course, means that she's had her makeup done by countless artists over the years, many of whom likely put false lashes on her to make her beautiful blue eyes stand out even more on camera. Now though, the 62-year-old star is playing makeup artist on herself due to the pandemic, and much to our delight, she shared a photo of the results of her first-ever time applying falsies herself.
The Henry Rose fragrance founder revealed her work via Instagram earlier this week in a stunning selfie in which she's wearing false eyelashes and looking up at the ceiling to show them off. She documented her success with the caption: "I did it! Socially distanced shoot coming up. Doing my own makeup. First time practicing applying false lashes. Thank god for YouTube! Pretty pleased with myself.☺️"
Of course, we can't help but wonder which YouTube video the actor watched — there are literally endless tutorials on how to apply lashes. Nonetheless, Pfeiffer is clearly a quick learner and did an amazing job at applying them on her own without the glue showing or any awkward spaces between her natural lashes and the falsies.
The pair of strip lashes that Pfeiffer chose are definitely longer than they are voluminous, though they still have a flirty and dramatic flair to them. If you're looking for a similar style, might we suggest LoveSeen's Cate Lash? The band on these lashes is barely-there, so it's basically undetectable once you apply them and the glue dries down. Also, they were designed by icon Jenna Lyons, so there's that.
Naturally, Pfeiffer has garnered a ton of great feedback on her post, with people leaving comments like, "Very impressive!" and, "👏👏great job, I can’t even deal with those," and, "You look so beautiful 😍😍😍."
We couldn't agree more. Congrats, Michelle, on your first time trying — and nailing — false eyelash application.
