The party plans are set, you’ve picked the perfect dress and your makeup turned out just how you like it. Now it’s time to tackle the false lashes, which can be a little tricky. A pair of false lashes can add the perfect finishing touch to your makeup look. Whether you’re opting for fluffy and natural or daring and dramatic. Get ready to say goodbye to the days of dreading applying your falsies. These top tips will have you applying false lashes like a pro in no time.
Squeeze a small amount of glue out of the tube a couple of minutes before use. This allows the glue to become slightly tacky so that it will be more sticky and easier to apply.
Trim the lashes so they fit the length of your natural lashes just right.
Rather than looking straight ahead into your mirror, keep your head straight and look down when applying your lashes. This stretches out the shape of your eye and makes it easier to apply the lashes.
Go for the velcro effect. Once the glue is on the lash band, place the band along your lash line, as if you’re going to apply the lash, then remove from your lash line. You’ll now have a line of glue along both your lashline and lash band. Both the glue on your lash line and on the lash band will now stick together easily. Just like velcro!
Apply a light layer of mascara to your own lashes once the false lashes are applied. This will help your own lashes bond with the false lashes more easily. If you opt to apply your mascara beforehand, it will be that bit more difficult to get the false lashes as close to your own lash line as possible. One of our favourite mascaras has to be Benefit BADgal BANG. The perfect way to lift your own natural lashes.
There you have it! These simple tips will make the world of difference when it comes to applying your false lashes. A bit of practice, and it will be like second nature to you.
