Applying false eyelashes can enhance your eye makeup and create a dramatic and captivating look. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to apply false eyelashes:
Materials You'll Need:
Tweezers or eyelash applicator
Small scissors (optional)
Prepare Your Natural Lashes: Start by curling your natural lashes and applying a coat of mascara. This will help create a seamless blend between your natural lashes and the false ones.
Choose the Right False Eyelashes: Select false eyelashes that suit the look you're going for. There are various styles, lengths, and densities available, from natural to dramatic.
Trim if Necessary: If the false eyelashes are too long for your eye shape, use small scissors to trim them to fit comfortably along your lash line. Trim them from the outer edge to maintain the natural tapering effect.
Apply Eyelash Adhesive: Squeeze a small amount of eyelash adhesive onto the back of your hand or a clean surface. Wait a few seconds for the adhesive to become slightly tacky. This step helps prevent the lashes from sliding around.
Pick Up the Lashes: Use tweezers or an eyelash applicator to hold the false eyelashes at the base, close to where the lashes are attached.
Position the Lashes: Look down into a mirror and position the false lashes above your natural lash line. Begin placing them from the center of your lash line, as this is the easiest and most natural point to line up.
Press and Secure: Gently press the false lashes down onto your natural lashes, ensuring they are as close to your lash line as possible. Use the tweezers to adjust and maneuver the lashes into place.
Adjust the Outer and Inner Corners: Once the center is secure, use the tweezers to adjust the outer and inner corners of the false lashes to fit the natural curve of your eye.
Secure the Edges: Press down on the inner and outer edges of the false lashes to ensure they are securely adhered to your natural lashes.
Optional: Apply Mascara: If desired, apply another coat of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false ones. This step can also help further secure the lashes.
Finishing Touches: Check for any gaps or areas that need adjustment. Gently press down on the lashes again to ensure they are well attached.
Removing False Eyelashes:
To remove the false eyelashes, gently grip the outer corner and carefully peel them off.
Clean any residual adhesive from the lashes using makeup remover or oil-free cleanser.
Store your false lashes in their original packaging or a clean container to keep them in good condition for future use.
Applying false eyelashes might take some practice, but with time, you'll become more skilled at getting the perfect look. Remember to be patient, use the right adhesive, and customize the lashes to your eye shape for the most natural and comfortable fit.
