X Factor Girls Go on the Lash

I like to think that the girls of X Factor are firm followers of this beauty else would they know about the trend for fantasy lashes? Katie debuted a larger-than-life feather set at the judges' houses, while Cher Lloyd's trademark urban look calls for a wide-eyed, flirty lash look. In fact, Superdrug have seen a 33% increase in lash sales, compared with this time last year. And now, luckily for you Best Tressers, we can spill their lash secrets, courtesy of X Factor lead makeup artist, Liz Martins.

'Little Miss Cher is 'lady greedy lash' and loves to wear three, yes three, pairs of lashes at a time! I am trying to wean her on to just two at the moment and failing miserably!! This girl is a 'lashaholic' and who am I not to indulge?!' says Liz.

Eyelure Naturalites Intense, £5.15 (Boots and Superdrug)

'Belle Amie love that fluttery wide-eyed look,' admits Liz, 'so I have been tending to use the more glamorous styles in the Eylure Naturalites and new Naturallites Intense.'

Eylure Sex and the City Lashes in Samantha, £6.45 (exclusive to Boots)

'Rebecca is my modern day Sade and loves wearing the Sex and The City Lashes,' says Liz. 'We especially love the sexy Samantha ones as they look natural but have a lot of depth.' Sx
