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

This is me genuinely trying, believe it or not, even after coachingfrom my gorgeous 13-year-old niece and xoJane's gorgeous Annie K, whodoes a version that is more "prune" lips (say the word prune as thepicture is taken) a la Mary Kate and Ashley (incidental name-drop: hiMK!). Also: Olivia knew a girl in college who would immediately gointo full-on duck lips mode whenever a guy she liked walked into theroom -- you'd have to see Olivia's impression of going in and out ofduck-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 onjust this left eye. When I pull them off, I keep pulling out my actuallashes. Tips, please? If the tips could not involve a sink or productsand be done in transit while I'm doing other things, that would alwaysbe ideal. If not, the quicker the method the better.

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

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