This step-by-step guide breaks it down.
Like learning to ride a bike or parallel park, learning how to apply false eyelashes isn’t a skill that comes easily. We all remember how struggle it was when the first time we tried to apply these tiny wigs (which is kind of what they are, no?) on our eyes even after carefully read through all the instructions printed on the package.
But anyone who’s mastered it will tell you it’s well worth the practice. It can make your eyes look bigger and more dramatic without the mess of mascara—and not even half of the price of eyelash extensions and lash lifts.
But we all know a few things can be more intimidating than getting sharp tweezers close to your eyes. Whether you want a natural full look or a more dramatic look, here are my 5 easy-to-follow steps that will ensure that this application process gonna be smooth and swift!
Step 1. Choose the right false lashes for your unique eye shape.
If you already read our last post about how to choose false lashes according to individual eye shapes, you are now good to identify your own shape and be able to choose eyelash products that will look best on you(if you haven’t, here is the link: https://bit.ly/2Tq1ups). After all, being a very important first step can help you get the placement of yours just right.
Step 2. Prepare, trim and curl.
Get to prepare your supplies: a pair of false lashes, scissors and tweezers, lash adhesive. Then gently remove your lashes with a pair of tweezers from the lash tray. Measure the strip against your actual eyelid and trim off the excess, you can keep and use the extra bit to later stack upon at your eye’s outer corners for an extra emphasized look. After completing your eyeshadow and eyeliner application of choice, curl your lashes and apply a coat of mascara. Once that’s set, you’re ready to apply your falsies!
Step 3. Apply your lash glue to the spine.
Let’s do it strategically and don't just glob it on and immediately stick it to your eyelid. Wait about 30 seconds to let the glue get tacky on the lash before applying. Remember don’t blow on the glue to get it to dry. Why? Imagine all the germs from your mouth to get anywhere near your eye.
And during waiting patiently，a little trick helps to soften the spine and distribute the adhesive onto the ends so they don’t lift while you’re wearing them. That is toggle the lash band back and forth between your fingers in a U shape, then you can wrap your strip lash around a blush or other cylindrical object to create the curve you desire.
Step 4. Time to lash on.
OK, game time! Here is comes to the tricky part, how to plop the strip onto your lash line close enough but not tangle up in your lashes? Look downwards into a mirror, not straight ahead. When you do this, your eyelid will extend and almost like you're closing your eyes, but you'll be better able to see exactly where to place the strip. Because when you close your eyes while applying your eye shape will change.
It will be difficult at the beginning, but after practice and practice you’ll get there! Even without help from tweezers!
Step 5. Use black eyeliner to hide the lash strip.
After application with your falsies, extra eyeliner and mascara will help blend them with your real lashes, tie it all together and filling in any little gaps. However, it will also limit the use of the pair to one or two times. If you are a very clean and neat person, you’d probably wash and clean them after remove your facial makeup, but reuse mascaraed up falsies more than twice is not safe, because bacteria will also build up!
Step 6. Go enjoy how good your final lash look!
