I love false eyelashes. They can literally make a look. But I havn’t always been so good at applying them. I’m still by no means the best out there, but I’m gradually improving so thought I would share a few tricks.
1- Invest in your lashes
You want to use a good quality pair of lashes. Nothing that looks too plastic. More importantly, you want them to have a bit of flexibility to them. I have recently been loving the faux minx lashes by Beccalashesuk.
They stock a range of faux minx bundles. I have a code over on my instagram and have shared pictures from their range.
Head over to BeautybyRaji if you fancy using it 🙂
2- Trim to size
This step is not always necessary, but you may need to trim the lashes to size. Trim from the outer corner if there too long.
3- Apply your glue
This is probably the most important step. Apply glue and leave for a good two minutes. If you use clear glue, you will see it starting to turn a bluish color. This was the step I was doing wrong for years! Applying lashes straight after you place the glue will just result in a wet mess all over your eyelid. I would rather leave it longer as it allows more control over the overall placement.
4- Place your lash
Use tweezers to stick the middle of the lash before you position the inner and outer corners.
5- Finishing touches
Apply mascara. This can help to bind your falsies and actual lashes together.
Disclaimer- I have been lucky enough to be sent a range of lashes from BeccaLashesUK. However, this is not an affiliate link and I would never work with a product or brand I wasn’t completely satisfied with myself. I also am a big believer in supporting smaller businesses.
