If you buy false eyelashes online, sooner or later you’ll have to put them on. That’s why it’s very important to master the skills required for applying fake lashes. We already covered the basics on how to apply false eyelashes on the homepage, but now we’d like to show you an even more detailed guide.
Of course, you can also go to a makeup artist and ask him or her to put on your lashes. This could be the best way to take if you’ll only wear false lashes once or twice and you don’t feel the need to master the skills yourself. This is also advisable if you’re preparing for a high-class social event and don’t want amateurish fake eyelashes to make you feel uncomfortable.
Naturally, the other way around, if you feel you like wearing fake eyelashes a lot and want to wear them regularly, then it could be a good idea to learn the craft of applying them yourself. This will also help you save a lot of money and time that you’d otherwise spend at a cosmetician.
So as you can see, under the right circumstances and depending on your plans, it could be very well worth the effort to learn how to put on fake eyelashes yourself.
Now let’s take a closer look at the steps involved in the process.
How to apply false eyelashes step by step
Before starting, measure your fake eyelashes’ length against the length of your natural lashes. This way you can avoid corner drooping and eye poking lashes. If you need to cut your fake lashes to be comfortable, start cutting from the outside. The best tools for this are nail scissors.
This is a very important preliminary step. Take both edges of the fake lash and bend it over into a C shape gradually. Once you get them to C shape, keep them in that form for a few seconds. This will ensure that the following steps will be easier to carry out.
Put on your lashes high quality eyelash glue. If you have more practice under your belt, you can apply it straight to the strips, but if it’s your first time, apply it first to a cotton swab or toothpick, and use that to apply the adhesive to the eyelash strips.
To make sure the glue won’t un-stick when you blink, ensure that there’s enough glue on both the inner and outer corner of the lashes.
Wait about 10 seconds for the glue to dry up a little bit before applying it to your own lashes. You can even blow it a little to quicken this process, but only gently. Then place the falsie to the base of your natural eyelash line on top of your natural lashes, but do NOT touch it to your eyelids.
As long as the glue doesn’t dry up complete it can look a little messy, but don’t worry. By the end, it will look really great. You can also aid the application with special tools developed for this purpose.
Put on high-quality mascara and use it to “comb” together your fake lashes with your natural ones. This will ensure a totally natural and sexy look. Make sure that the lashes mesh into each other.
