Makeup: Tips and tricks to applying false eyelashes

We all want to look our best, and if false eyelashes are your thing, keep reading for some great tips and tricks when using them!

  1. Know the shape of your eyes before buying any so as to get the correct ones that suit you best. There is no ‘one shape and size fits all eyes’ lash!
  2. Make sure they are a good fit before applying by measuring along the natural lash line of each eye, trimming where necessary.
  3. Have you noticed how most lashes don’t naturally curl to the shape of your eye? Well, before using try wrapping the lash around a makeup brush or other small handle to put a slight bend or curve in the lash.
  4. Be sure to keep the false lash in line with your real lashes. If you place them too close to the inner corner it will irritate your eyes.
  5. Apply mascara before and afterwards so as to create a more natural look.
  6. Rather than pipe the glue directly onto the false lash put a small amount into your hand or other small lid and then apply a thin line using a cotton bud/q-tip.
  7. If you have greasy eyelids be sure to clean/blot your lids before applying the lash band to your eyes.
  8. Looking for more volume? You can stack two lashes before putting them on for a fuller look.
  9. Be sure to choose lashes that are slightly longer than your own, and are made of natural hairs.
  10. Get yourself a good, clear mirror which you can see well in when it is placed below your faceline.

    If you cut each strip into 3 sections before putting them on it makes them easier to handle and apply.
