Hey beauties, any tips and tricks for applying fake eye lashes?
If you're new to applying falsies, always choose a pair that has a very thin or invisible lash band. Those are a lot more forgiving in terms of application, look and wear. They're more flexible and soft, meaning they're easier to maneuver and put on your lash line. It also looks a lot more natural (so you don't feel overwhelmed or self-conscious about them being too obvious) and because they're feather-lite the corners won't lift up as easily. I recommend the Ardell Demi Wispies - they're amazing and perfect for beginners! The style is flattering on everyone.
If you need to trim your lashes - trim from the outer end only so both lashes are even and have a nice uniform shape. I think the most important part is using a GOOD lash adhesive - it's the thing that's keeping them from awkwardly coming off! My favourite lash adhesive is the one from Socialeyes. It's latex free, contains zero nasties and is only $6.50 (+shipping is only $5). If you need it ASAP, I think the best one in Priceline is the Manicare one. It's on a tiny little tube (perfume sample size - literally). It's about $3-4.
Lashes can be re-used several times so take care of em! I like applying mascara before applying falsies so 1. the two can blend in and 2. so mascara doesn't get on the falsies. Even though I've been wearing falsies for 5+ years, I only recently tried using tweezers to place them perfectly in place and I must say, it works wonderfully!
If you want to practice just order a cheap set on eBay (they're usually 5 pairs for $7-10 and practice with them.
Good luck Kirra!
Practice practice practice.
Makeupcatxo has given excellent advice.
Generally, lashes can be used more than once, (for one person, never share false lashes)
If using strip lashes, measure against your natural lashes for length and trim from the outside.
Apply glue along the band. Less in the middle and a little more on the outer edges to ensure they stay down.
I find holding the lashes with tweezers easier. Come down from above and place onto your lashes, securing the middle first, and bringing the corners into place. Using a white glue will allow it to dry clear and apply a little liner over the top to disguise the band if you choose.
I'm glad I opened this thread, such great advice here! I am a false lash novice so I'm glad I read these tips and product advice as I'd really like to try wearing false lashes a bit more, they always look so glamorous! :)
Thanks to beautyheaven for sending me the shampoo and conditioner to trial.
Essano Clarifying Clay Masque is unlike any clay mask I have tried, It has more of a mousse texture (imagine lightweight and bubbly), and does not dry hard or make your skin feel tight,.
