    Im sorry this is nothing about the post, but Tavi, i just went on style rookie and it came up with a completely different website and ive looked everywhere on google but it’s NOT THERE
    WHERE HAS IT GONE? D: seriously, is it still there?

  • saltwater March 15th, 2012 3:58 PM

    I have some of those but I haven’t mastered putting them on. This has been helpful! Also, you sound uncannily like Zooey Deschanel.

  • Susann March 15th, 2012 3:58 PM

    Maybe I finally dare trying fake lashes after watching this :)

    • Amy Rose March 15th, 2012 10:53 PM

      Susann, I promise you can MAKE IT WORK. I completely taught myself how to do these at 16 and could still make them look good! The trick is seriously just using individuals instead of crazy, unwieldy strips.

    You guys will never know how helpful this is. Seriously. Thank you.

  • Kama March 15th, 2012 4:22 PM

    YOU’RE SO PRETTYYYYYYYY! (And The Smiths shirt?!) Would you like to be my older sister and show me around the mysterious world of make-up?

    • Amy Rose March 15th, 2012 8:53 PM

      OBVIOUSLY the answer is yes…it would be way more fun for me than for you!!!

  • Eliza March 15th, 2012 4:32 PM

    I was just thinking about how I could learn to apply fake eyelashes!! THANKS!! <3

  • starsinyourheart March 15th, 2012 5:05 PM

    “Not dough-y like pillsbury, doe-y like a… cool deer” lol!

    Curse you Kindle’s lack of Flash player! (Not that I could wear fake eyelashes with glasses anyway, but still!)

  • Imogen-Rose March 15th, 2012 7:07 PM

    You remind me of Emma Stone-in a good way, obviously. I wish I was as gorgeous as you!

    • Amy Rose March 15th, 2012 8:54 PM

      I’m really flattered, thank you! And I bet you are a super-babe.

    amy is a total dreamboat IRL her lashes breaks hearts with every flutter. love this video my love

  • MissKnowItAll March 15th, 2012 9:04 PM

    Amy Rose, I’m adopting you into my internet family. Anaheed is my mom and you’ll be the super cool older sister who knows all the secrets of makeup.

    • Narita March 16th, 2012 11:58 AM

      Mind a fourteen year old young sister? I want to join.

      • Anaheed March 16th, 2012 3:28 PM

        This is turning into the best family of all time. Also if I’m your mom and Amy Rose is your sister, that makes me Amy Rose’s mom and I can boss her around and make her do my eyelashes like every day.

        Now go clean your rooms.

      • Amy Rose March 16th, 2012 7:33 PM

        All Rookie readers are welcome to be my little sisters because you already are in my head. Also, Anaheed, *SLAMS BEDROOM DOOR*

      • MotherOfInvention March 17th, 2012 12:52 PM

        Wait! I have had the ultimate pleasure of the door slam, in person! Oh my dear Anaheed, do you really think this child was easily bossed?! (BTW, Narita has excellent taste in sisters!) Love the Rookie fam!

    • MissKnowItAll March 17th, 2012 7:53 PM

      Best Idea Ever: Tavi as the grandma!

  • starcollector March 15th, 2012 11:00 PM

    You seem like such a chill person. The whole time I was watching this I was thinking “I could totally hang out with her”. Is that creepy? I don’t know. Maybe it was also your awesome smiths shirt drawing me in.

  • sttefaaa March 16th, 2012 10:21 AM

    Oh finally!
    I remember myself as a kid trying to apply these. :D

    haha, Amy, I have those tweezers too!

  • madicps April 19th, 2012 7:10 PM

    is it going to be horrible if i accidentally bought individual glue instead of strip glue? :(

  • stringbeans May 12th, 2012 2:00 PM

    Sick vid amy rose – but how do I get these mothers off?

  • irena May 29th, 2012 5:45 PM

    Once I put the fake lashes on, when should I take them off?
    How do I take them off?
