False lashes can seem to be pretty intimidating if you’re just starting out. You might think it takes years of practice to get it just right but that’s not true. It DOES take practice but it’s actually very simple once you do start practicing.
But in the beginning, you might have some issues unless you’re using some advice. They slide, an end may come unglued, the middle might bubble up, if you don’t trim the end then they may not fit and poke you all day long… It’s enough to turn people off from using them after only one failed attempt. But if you try this, I bet you’ll be thrilled with your results. Here’s what to do:
What You’ll Need:
- Your Favorite Lash Strip — I have a very thick eyelash style so if that’s what you’re going for, but if you’re a beginner, you’ll probably want to use a thinner white strip because they’re more flexible and easier to handle.
- Cuticle Scissors
- Lash Glue – some lashes come with their own little glue packages but you can also buy some separately if you feel like you need a lot. (Duo lash glue can be pretty goopy sometimes though, just so you know.)
How to Do It:
Start by doing your makeup first. False lashes are going to be a step you wanna do after the make up is applied. If your lashes aren’t the same color as your falsies, you’re going to want to use mascara so that they match or it’s going to stand out in a bad way.
- Use tweezers to pull the false lashes out of the box they come in.
