DIY: Make Your Own Corner / Half False Eyelashes

What are Corner / Half Lashes?

Let’s keep it simple, they are exactly what they sound like… false eyelashes that are half the size of regular ones and are applied to the outer corner of your eyes.

 

Why Use Half Lashes?

Corner / half eyelashes are perfect for those who love to wear falsies or just love a good bit of volume on their eyes. This is used more so to enhance their natural eyelashes and for some it is much easier to apply. This type of lash is subtle yet gives the look many desire. But the best thing is, you can make your own DIY half eyelashes at home with literally any pair of false eyelashes! It is up to you what style of lash you decide to make into half eyelashes and there is a wide range of materials such as mink, faux mink and synthetic.

Life hack: If you have noticed that you have damaged your favourite pair of lashes and don’t have the time to purchase a new pair. Simply take the lashes and cut of the damaged part and you are good to go!

How to DIY Your Own Corner Lashes:

What you will need:

  • Your favourite pair of lashes that you want to make into corner lashes
  • Lash Adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers or eyelash applicator
  • Mirror

 

Once you have select which pair of eyelashes you will be making into half lashes. Grab a pair of scissors and carefully trim the lashes, make sure you keep checking them against your eyes so you don’t cut them too short! We recommend you pick a pair of lashes that suit the look you’re going for. For example, if you’re looking for a more cat eyed look then grab a pair of lashes that are flared at the outer corner. If you are looking for a fuller look, select a pair of lashes that are roughly the same length all the way along the lashes.

Okay, so now you have made your corner / half false eyelashes, you’re probably wondering what is the best way to apply them? Is there is any little tips or tricks?

Step by step applying corner lashes:

First you want to make sure that the eyelash is the right size and shape to fit your eyes properly. If it’s not the right size, grab some scissors and carefully trim the lash until it is how you desire. Apply a thin layer of lash glue / adhesive to the band of the false eyelash. It is very important that you leave the glue to become tacky. This usually takes around 30 – 40 seconds depending on the adhesive you are using. Once it has become tacky, using the tweezers or eyelash applicator pick up the falsies by the actual eyelashes. Look in the mirror and carefully a line them to where you would like them to sit on your eyes. Whilst looking down apply the lash to your eyes. To make sure they are super secure and will last you all day, push the lash band against your eyes to make sure they don’t peel up throughout the day. Once you’re happy with the positioning and the overall look, you are done!
