HOW TO CORRECTLY APPLY FALSE EYELASHES?
STEP 1: GET THE RIGHT LASHES
You have several options when it comes to false lashes: A full set of false lashes or small clusters of individual lashes. If you buy a full set you can cut them into individual lashes.
If the lashes you bought are too long, you can trim them by cutting them at an angle. Make sure to cut each individual lash at a different length so they look more natural. Always reserve the longest clusters for the outside corners of your eyes.
STEP 2: PREP FOR APPLICATION
Make sure your eyelid and lashes are clean of any makeup, then curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.
You can warm the curler under a blow dryer for about 3 seconds. Just make sure the metal isn't too hot for your eye.
Apply a liquid or pencil eyeliner to eyes to conceal the lash roots.
STEP 3: GET THE GLUE READY
Toss the white glue that comes with your eyelashes. Instead, opt for dark eyelash adhesive, which is usually sold separately at drugstores.
I recommend Duo Lash Adhesive .
Always read the directions on the package for tips on how to use eyelash glue or adhesive as some products may require a different application.
If you are applying individual lashes, put a few drops of lash glue or adhesive on a hard surface. Let it dry for a minute until it becomes tacky. Use a set of tweezers to pick up eyelashes and dip the root in the adhesive.
If applying a full set of lashes, apply tiny drops of glue or adhesive along the strip.
STEP 4: ADHERE THE LASHES
If applying individual lashes, start at the outer corner of the eyes. Take the tweezers and wedge the glued lash into your natural lashes. Stay as close to the root of your real lashes as possible.
Hold it in place for a few seconds so it dries in place.
You'll want a couple clusters at the outer corner of the eye and one in the center of the eye or wherever your real lashes are sparse. Make sure to leave a natural space between lashes.
If applying a strip, use your fingers to hold the lashes and apply on the lid as close to the roots as possible from the outer corner of the eye in. If you notice the lashes are too long, take them off and trim them with scissors.
Use a Q-tip to press lashes in place.
STEP 5: APPLY EYE MAKEUP
Once the false eyelashes are applied, let them dry for a couple minutes before applying eyeshadow and mascara.
You may want to apply mascara to lashes to help blend them in with your real ones.
STEP 6: HOW TO REMOVE YOUR FALSE EYELASHES
To remove false eyelashes, use an eye makeup remover like Lancome's famous Bi-Facil. Apply the remover with your fingers, massaging it into the lash root. Your false eyelashes should slip right off. You can also try water to loosen the glue.
