How to Apply False Eyelashes
What you’ll need to begin: Mascara, eyeliner, a set of false lashes, lash glue, scissors, tweezers or lash placers (optional)
1- Start by applying a thin line of eyeliner and a coat of your favourite mascara and allow time to dry.
2- Before applying any glue to the false lashes, hold one of the lash strips up to your eye as if you were applying them.
If there is any overhang, trim the false eyelash from the outer edge only, always leaving the natural inner taper in tact. Repeat on other lash strip.
3- Apply a thin line of glue along the full length of the lash band and let it sit for 30 seconds. This allows the glue a chance to become tacky and reduces slippage while applying.
4- Once the glue has become tacky, one at a time, hold the false lash from its centre using your tweezers, lash placer or fingers and gently place the false lash as close to your natural lash line as possible. Continue setting the lash down on either corner one at a time. Repeat on the other eye.
5- (Optional) -Apply a second coat of your mascara to blend the false lashes to your natural ones.
Note: If you plan to re-use your lashes, skip this step.
Practice makes perfect!
