Celebrity lash tips

A celebrity make-up artist has revealed her top tips to garnering luscious lashes.

Laura McComiskie has worked with a host of stunning stars including Ashlee Simpson and Kimberly Wyatt and knows a thing or two about highlighting natural beauty.

The cosmetics expert has revealed the secret to creating red carpet-ready peepers.

"To make the most of your lashes gently use curlers on the base of lashes, but don't clamp down on one spot for too long or you'll end up with a sharp angle," she advised in an interview with Closer magazine.

Laura understands the importance of healthy skin. The beauty pro has noted her favourite budget technique in getting gorgeously glowing skin.

"You wouldn't believe it, but bicarbonate of soda makes the perfect facial exfoliator," she explained. "Just mix a little into your cleanser and massage on to your face. It leaves skin ultra smooth."

Laura knows there are a multitude of beauty myths circulating. She has banished one in particular.

"The biggest beauty myth is that splashing cold water on your face closes pores - if you have enlarged pores, the skin's already been stretched," she said.
