One of my favorite makeup secrets to really make your eyes pop is false eyelashes, however everyone seems to struggle with putting them on. Princess skills to the rescue!
The very first part is lets look at the size of lashes! I wear two sizes/ styles of lashes, theres a few variations within this but two basic looks and styles. One is natural plus and the other is a more glam “natural” look. These are the two basic shapes that are going to give you that amazing doe eye and making your eyes pop without dragging down your eyes or looking too over the top.
The ones you see me using in this tutorial are my more glam pair and they are these right here they are incredible and so pretty and perfect. Ok so lets get started! I start with my makeup totally done, mascara and liner, some people layer mascara and liner over their lashes I’m just not one of them.
Piece one is most people have to trim their lashes, its not a ton but because I love to be a little extra I trim from the inside so I can keep more of the length from the outside of the lashes. Knowing how much to cut I hate to say is purely trial and error for each person. Start with a tiny bit and work your way up and eventually you will get it right. This is about what I trim for reference its really not a ton.
The next part is glue, I am a huge fan of the brush on glue that comes in a tube like this one here (yes it looks super rough its really well loved and used).
I take the little brush and just brush it right on the line where the lashes are tied together. A nice thin strip is all thats needed, a little goes a really long way.
Heres an idea of how much glue I approximately use on each lash.
Next you just have to let it dry for about 20-30 seconds till it gets tacky.
Next I line my lashes right up to the bottom of my eyeliner. Its the easiest point to start to practice lining up to, trust me catching your lashes SUCKS!!! Get as close as possible to the lash line with out touching the lashes. Next press them in especially the inside corner and outside corner. These tend to be the points that are the first to lift during the day so they are the most important to make stick.
The very last step is I press the lashes up so they don’t hang down they are pressed up like when you curl your lashes. This final step really makes your eyes POP!!!!
Boom finished eye!!! Its like having the worlds most amazing naturalish lashes. Now you know how to apply lashes like a PRO!!!
For comparison one eye done and one eye without.
I hope this helped you feel more confident in practicing and applying false lashes!
