Long, thick eyelashes are always in style. Today there are hundreds of brands of false lashes to choose from on the market. Some lashes are natural, while others are dramatic. But there’s only one way to apply falsies the right way, and today we’ll take a look at how!
Here are some items you’ll need to get started:
-Your favorite mascara
-Black liquid eyeliner
First, you will want to measure the false lashes to your upper lash line. Commonly, the false lashes will be longer than your own eye, so measure exactly where you want your lashes to end. Regardless of if you’re going for a dramatic or natural look, it’s important to make sure the lashes fit your actual eye.
After you’ve measured the falsies to your own lashes, take your scissors and trim off the excess bit. This is your chance to personalize them. For example, if they’re too long then you can trim them. And if you prefer different lengths in different areas, you can use your scissors to trim them to your liking.
Black lash glue will give you the most natural appearance, but if you cannot find it the next best is a clear lash glue. Now you’re ready to apply the glue to the false lash band. Take a moment to let it get tacky- about 5-15 seconds. Next take your lash tweezers and pick up the lashes. Try to apply the falsies as close to your lash line as possible, because that’ll give you the most natural look! Push lashes down with your fingers. Remember, if the glue is not tacky enough, it will not adhere properly.
Now it’s time to use your lash comb to create the illusion that your lashes are one with the falsies. Brush your eyelashes and mix in the falsies with your natural lashes. You’ll double this effect by applying your favorite mascara on top. This will intensify your look, and bring it all together. The last thing you need to do is apply your liquid eyeliner on your lash line. This will disguise the falsies and give you a sexy cat-eye look at the same time! And you’re done! So what are you waiting for? Call your girlfriends and head out on the town to show off your flirty new lashes!
