How to: Apply False Lashes

Hey Dolls!

Everyone wants long, voluminous, wispy lashes. For those of us who don't have those kinds of lashes naturally, we have to fake it... with false lashes. Now applying false lashes can be tricky, so I am going to break it down for you all. Hopefully this helps anyone who is having trouble applying false eyelashes. Without further a do, let's get started!

Let's begin with what you will need:

  • Lashes
  • Lash Glue
  • Tweezers
  • A mirror
  • Eyelash curler 
  • Mascara
Step by Step:
  • Use your eyelash curler upside down to "un-curl" your lashes. This will help expose the lash line, so applying lashes will be a bit easier. *this step is ONLY for people with extremely curly eyelashes.*
  • Remove your lashes carefully from the packaging and measure them to your eyes. You are measuring to see if the lash is too long. If it is too long trim the excess for better fit. 
  • Once you have trimmed your lashes apply a thin layer of glue to the band. Apply a bit more glue to the outer and inner corners. The corners tend to not stick as well as the middle section of the lash band. Allow 20 to 30 seconds to pass before applying the lash to the eye. The glue must become tacky for it to perform at it's best. 
  • Once the glue is tacky take your tweezers and grip the center of the lash with them. The center of the lash is going to be applied to the eye first. 
  • After gripping the lashes with the tweezers look down into a mirror. Looking down with expose the lash line. 
  • Apply the lash into the center of the lash line. DO NOT place the lash on the lid or your real lashes. Once the lash is secure in the center, secure the corners. Once the lash is on, take the end of the tweezers and press the false lash down. you can use your fingers for this as well. This will further secure the lash to the lash line and it will help blend the real lashes with the false. 
  • Do the same on both sides. 
  • Then take a mascara with a plastic wand and lightly wiggle the mascara on the base of your real lashes and move upward. Apply less pressure as you move up the lashes. This will help the lashes adhere to the the false lashes. 
  • To further blend the lashes curl the lashes with an eyelash curler. DO NOT press too hard. Pressing too hard will create a dent in the lashes. 
That's all Folks!
