Why No One Over The Age Of 15 Should Even Attempt To Do Duck Lips

A throwback post from Jane's Phone soliciting commenters for tips on taking off three-day-old false lashes. Help? Anyone?

This is me genuinely trying, believe it or not, even after coaching from my gorgeous 13-year-old niece and xoJane's gorgeous Annie K, who does a version that is more "prune" lips (say the word prune as the picture is taken) a la Mary Kate and Ashley (incidental name-drop: hi MK!). Also: Olivia knew a girl in college who would immediately go into full-on duck lips mode whenever a guy she liked walked into the room -- you'd have to see Olivia's impression of going in and out of duck-lips mid-sentence to get the brilliance of this. ANYWAY, I am on day three of this professional make-up application

(reapplying lipstick) and have fake eyelashes (individuals) left on just this left eye. When I pull them off, I keep pulling out my actual lashes. Tips, please? If the tips could not involve a sink or products and be done in transit while I'm doing other things, that would always be ideal. If not, the quicker the method the better.

PS My therapist told me today to hug a tree and that seems somehow related to this. I can't wait to see how Manhattanites will react.

PPS The point was: help taking off fake eyelashes? And how long are you supposed to leave them on anyway? As many days as they'll last? I will give you a beauty tip in return! Xo
