Applying false eyelashes may seem daunting, but it's actually not that difficult! With a little practice, you'll be able to apply them like a pro. The most important thing is to choose the right lashes for your eye shape and to use a good quality glue. Once you've got those two things sorted, follow the steps below and you'll be rocking falsies in no time.
Prep your natural lashes.
Prep your natural lashes by curling them and applying mascara. This will help the false lashes blend in better. Next, use a tweezer to pick up the false lash and apply a thin line of glue along the strip. Wait about 30 seconds for the glue to get tacky before placing the false lash as close to your natural lash line as possible. Use your tweezer to press the false lash down and hold it in place for a few seconds. Repeat on the other eye.
Measure and cut the falsies.
Before you start gluing anything to your face, make sure the false eyelashes fit your eye. Place the strip on your lash line and see if you need to trim it down. Once they’re the right size, apply a thin layer of glue to the strip and wait a few seconds for it to get tacky. Then, starting at the inner corner of your eye, press the strip onto your lash line and hold it in place for a few seconds. If you need to, you can use a tweezer to help press the falsies into place.
Apply lash glue to the strip.
Applying false eyelashes may seem daunting, but it's actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Start by applying a thin layer of lash glue to the strip. Wait a few seconds for the glue to become tacky before applying the strip to your lash line. Press down on the strip to secure it in place. If you need to, you can use a tweezer to press down on the strip. Once the strip is in place, apply a thin layer of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false ones.
Wait for the glue to get tacky.
One of the most important steps in applying false eyelashes is to wait for the glue to get tacky. If you apply the lashes too soon, the glue will be too wet and they will not stay on. If you wait too long, the glue will be too dry and they will not stick. The best time to apply the lashes is when the glue is tacky. You can test this by touch. The lashes should feel like they are starting to stick, but they should not be fully stuck on.
Apply the strip to your lash line.
The best way to apply false eyelashes is to start by applying the strip to your lash line. Use a small amount of glue on the strip and then press it onto your lash line. Once the strip is in place, use a tweezers to press the lashes into place. Start at the outer corner of your eye and work your way in. You can also use mascara to help blend the false lashes with your natural ones.
