Mastering the application of false eyelashes can transform one’s appearance, elevating everyday makeup to a glamorous level. Precise placement is crucial, and with practice, the skill becomes second nature. Mastering this art enhances the eyes, framing them with voluminous allure.
Enhancing your lashes with falsies is a fun way to add drama to your eyes. Here’s how to apply fake eyelashes like a pro:
What You Need:
- A set of false eyelashes
- Eyelash glue (consider having extra)
- A small spoon
Select Your Lashes: Start by purchasing a set of false lashes. For beginners, it’s a good idea to choose a more affordable pair, as it may take a few attempts to get it just right.
Prep the Lashes: Hold the lashes up to your eye and trim the ends to fit your lash line. Trim a few individual lashes for a more natural look, ensuring the outer lashes are slightly longer than the inner ones.
Apply Glue: Spread a small amount of glue along the edge of the lash strip. Blow lightly on the glue to help it become tacky.
Placement: Using your fingers or tweezers, gently place the lash strip as close as possible to your natural lash line. Press firmly but gently in the middle, and then work towards the outer edges. Hold it in place for about 30 seconds.
Fill in Gaps: Once both lashes are applied, use black liquid eyeliner to fill in any gaps between the fake and natural lash lines. Start at the inner corner and trace your eyelash across to the outer corner.
Mascara Trick: To apply mascara, take a small spoon and place it against your eye, cupping your eye. This helps hold the fake lash in place while you apply mascara. It also blends the natural and fake lash lines for a more seamless look.
A Few Tips:
Keep a small tube of glue with you when you’re out in case of emergencies.
Be patient; it may take a few tries to perfect the application.
Starting with affordable lashes is a good idea until you become more skilled at application.
With practice, you’ll become a pro at applying fake eyelashes, and no one will suspect they’re not your natural lashes!
