How to apply false lashes – the beginners guide

how to apply false lashes

Heading on a night out? Want your eyes to be the first thing people notice when they see you? False lashes are amazing for really finishing a look and making you look gorgeous. Whilst they look great applying false lashes can be really tricky and the half off lash look is never a good one. Whatever the occasion here’s my top tips to making your false lashes rock the show.

Ardell Fashion False lashes Demi Wispies

Choose your style

Individual lashes are so fiddly and I’ve never got the hang of them. I prefer strip lashes which are a lot easier to handle and apply. Opt for lashes with a thin hand as the thick ones hurt and don’t feel natural at all.

Measure your lash

If the lashes don’t fit you can trim them to size by snipping from the outside corner.

Apply some mascara

Before you apply your falsies apply some mascara so the blend between your own and the false lashes will be seamless.

benefit eyelash glue

Use quality glue

One of the major drawbacks of wearing false lashes is when the glue disappears and you end up with a false lash hanging off your eye. Invest in a decent false lash glue that will keep your lashes firmly glued to your eye. Make sure you let the glue go tacky before you apply so it doesn’t slip off.
