How to apply Fake Eyelashes Yourself
Fake eyelashes add length and thickness to eyelashes, and make them look fuller than natural eyelashes. Fake eyelashes are available in varying lengths, density etc. Even though it is not rocket science, applying fake eyelashes can be tricky. They may fall off too soon, or not stick evenly. Some even end up sticking fast at weird angles. Here are simple steps to help you put on a pair of fake lashes like a pro.
How to apply Fake Eyelashes Step by Step
- Before starting out, make sure the length of the false lash is the same as your eye, and that it fits well along the shape of your eye. Trim using nail scissors if it is too long.
- Hold both ends of the lash and bend it inwards to create a C. This will help curve the lash to fit the natural curve of your lid and fit better.
- Apply eye liner on your eye lid as you normally would. You can use gel liners, liquid or pencil liners. Wait for it to dry before you apply the glue.
- Getting good quality glue is important. The glue should be able to stick the lash to your lid, easily, without causing any irritation to your eye. The best way is to use a toothpick to dab a little glue on the edge of the lash, and use a cotton bud to apply it on your lid. Make sure you apply enough so the lash sticks without coming off when you blink.
- After applying the glue, wait about 10 seconds and carefully, using a pair of tweezers, carefully place the false lashes on your natural lash line. The false lash should be placed on the lashes, and not on the lid.
- Wait for the glue to dry completely before you apply mascara, or use lash curlers. You can fill up gaps in the lash line with liquid eye liner.
