DIY: Custom False Eyelashes – Stacking Lashes

Why You Should Try Stacking Lashes

Looking to get a little creative with you eye look? Did you know you can customise your false eyelashes to create any unique style? Yep that is right! You can mix and match your falsies to get the ultimate unique look just right for you! Oh and the best bit is that is its super easy, just follow our guide! You will be surprised at how easy it is and wonder why you never tried this before.

What you need:

  • At least two pairs of false eyelashes (3D Mink, 3D Faux Mink or Synthetic Lashes)
  • Scissors
  • Lash Adhesive

STEP ONE:

Select your favourite false eyelashes. You will need at least two pairs to be able to stack your falsies. The two pairs could even be the same style if you are just looking for a more dramatic eye! If you are aiming for super fluffy, dramatic lashes we suggest you opt for two pairs of 3D lashes – either 3D Mink or 3D Faux Mink (vegan). However, if you’re wanting something a little more subtle then we suggest you use two pairs of synthetic falsies. Mixing different styles will always give you a unique and personalised lash style and thus result in some amazing looks! An example of pairing would be stacking lashes that are fuller on the outer edges (winged / cat eye) with a pair of full criss-cross falsies. This will leave you with definition, volume and enhance your eyes!

STEP TWO:

Now you have selected two pairs of lashes, it’s time to get stacking! Grab the falsies and stack them onto of each other whilst aligning them.

STEP THREE:

Once the false eyelashes are stacked, carefully place them against your eyes to see if they need trimming to fit your eye shape better. Some people find that they don’t actually need to trim them. However, if you do then trim off little bits at a time as you don’t want to accidently make them too short. Keep measuring them against your eyes until you have the perfect fit.

STEP FOUR:

Apply the fake eyelashes! It’s just the same as applying false eyelashes as you normally would don’t worry! Apply a thin layer of glue to the lash band and wait at least 30 – 40 seconds for the lash glue to become tacky. This is very important because if the glue is too wet you will have a struggle getting the lashes to stick and will slip and slide about. Set the stacked lashes on your natural lash line pressing down firmly paying attention to both the inner and outer corners. We suggest you apply your falsies with a lash applicator as this makes sure you get your lashes on first time, mess free and is also more hygienic.

…And you are done! You now have gorgeous unique false eyelashes!

Top tip:

When removing your false eyelashes you can leave them stacked ready for tomorrow. However, this is completely up to you! Make sure you remove excess glue from the band and if you don’t want them to stay stacked then carefully pull them apart and remove the excess adhesive.
