Applying False Eyelashes

There is completely no doubt that false eyelashes make your eyelashes look much fuller. Besides, fuller lashes are just what you may need for a quick spruce-up.

Fake eyelashes come in many different styles & densities and applying them is pretty easy- once you learn it.

Basically, there are two types of false eyelashes:

When applying false eyelashes, a better result is achieved when the adhesive is allowed to become “tacky” prior to contact with the skin (having been applied to the false eyelash direct).

How to apply false eyelashes

Full lashes are easier to apply and don’t look as natural, but individual lashes require a steadier hand and a bit more practice. Whichever style you choose, follow these tips to make your lashes look as natural as possible:

False eyelashes may be applied to either cleansed or “made-up” eyes.

While applying false eyelashes, press the inside edge of the eyelash to the edge of your own eyelid and firm from the inside outwards with gentle pressure from your fingertip.

Removing False Eyelashes

Apply some eye make-up remover to your eyes and let it soak in for several seconds to soften up the adhesive. Take a corner of the lash band and gently pull off the lashes.

Cleaning and Storing

To wash them, use warm, soapy water to remove any mascara and dirt. Take a pair of tweezers and carefully pull off any additional glue. A toothbrush or moustache brush works great for cleaning between the lashes. Store them on the platform in the original container to keep their shape. You can reuse your false eye lashes provided you keep them clean.

It’s best to reserve this look for special occasions; long-term use can lead to eye irritation from the glue, and even infections. Choose only very fine lashes, not too long, and they should look absolutely natural.
