How To Apply False Lashes Like A PRO
No matter if you’ve got a wedding, a hot date, or you just love fabulous fringe on the daily, anytime is a good time for falsies as far as I'm concerned. But getting glue near your eye can be intimidating. So I'm showing you how to apply lashes step-by-step so you look like a seasoned pro. So gather your supplies and choose your own adventure. Want drama? Go for a fluffier, bolder lash strip like the **limited edition** BLACK OPAL from Lashes Everlasting. For subtle glamour (or those very, very intimidated), go for a more natural lash like JADE. Either way you can do it. I believe in you!
Once you've chosen your lashes of choice (the ones shown above: Lashes Everlasting in CRYSTAL *coming soon* Click HERE to be notified when they are released!), you’ll also need some glue (I totally LOVE House of Lashes glue, but the classic ol' drugstore Duo will work just fine), tweezers, and a pair of scissors.
Now that you have your supplies ready, here's a quick video I put together to show you the proper steps you need to take to have perfect lash application every time!
Step 1: Prep Lashes: Curl your natural lashes and apply a coat of mascara. This will help your lashes blend better with the strip lashes you apply!
Step 2: Remove Lashes from the tray with tweezers.
Step 3: Measure the strand against your eye. If there’s any overhang, take note of how many lashes too long the strand is.
Step 4: Cut the band from the outside—not the inside! Most lash strips get gradually longer as you move toward the outside. Trimming on the outside of the strip will ensure that you have shorter lashes toward the inner corner of your eye to prevent lifting.
Step 5: Apply glue to the entirety of the lash strip. Wait 30 seconds and allow the glue to get tacky on the lash. And remember: No blowing!
Step 6: Using tweezers, place the middle of the strip in the center of your eye.
Step 7: Using tweezers, nudge the outer and inner corners down along your lashline.
Step 8: Once dry, brush natural and strip lashes together to blend.
