Guide: False Eyelashes & Glasses
We have put together the ultimate guide for all you false eyelash lovers who wear glasses. Just because you need to wear glasses doesn’t mean you can’t slay a pair of falsies. It all comes down to selecting the right style of false eyelashes for you. It’s a come misconception that all you spectacle wearing beauties can’t wear false eyelashes. Think about it realistically, why would wearing glasses stop you from wearing lashes and experimenting with different makeup look? Here are our tips and tricks on what type of lashes to pick, how you should wear them and what not to do when wearing falsies with your specs on.
What type of lashes should I go for?
Depending on how close your glasses sit to your face depends on this. If your glasses sit further down your nose, the longer the false eyelashes can be without them making unwanted contact with the lenses. If you are new to wearing lashes, why not start out with wearing shorted lashes and work your way up? Our ‘Tease’ eyelashes, the perfect lash to start with (only £3.95 bargain, we know). However, if you want to go for longer false eyelashes, select a pair that are well curled and the more they stick forward the more annoying contact they will make with your glasses.
Another way you can get away with wearing longer false eyelashes with specs is to opt for glasses that have larger frames. This enables you to be able to wear the glasses further down your nose. This gives a greater space to wear whatever eyelash style you want! If you are fed up of your glasses and find they get in the way of your creativity, then why not try out wearing some contact lenses? There is so many choices out there and some you can ever wear straight for a week!
First things first, mascara.
It is very important to prep your real eyelashes before applying any falsies. This is because mascara will curl your lashes and stop any stays from pointing out from under the false eyelashes. The mascara also helps as it is something the eyelash glue can adhere to making sure your lashes last all day long!
Now the prep is done, let’s talk false eyelashes…
Make sure that your false eyelashes fit your eye correctly, we all have different eye shapes so it is impossible to have a false eyelash that fits all! Begin by measuring the false eyelash agaist your eye, you will be able to see where the falsie over hangs. Gran some tweezers or use your finger to mark where the lash needs trimming. Holding the false eyelash, carefully trim the lash to size. Check the falsies against your eyes again and if it needs trimming further repeat the steps.
Trick: Any excess false eyelash that has been trimmed off you can get creative with. Why not try stacking these extra bits on top? You can create more of a flared AKA cat eye look with this trick!
When applying the false eyelashes, use an eyelash applicator!
Such a simple little tool that makes sure a big difference. It makes the application process a breeze and prevents getting lash adhesive on your fingers!
Tip: When applying the lash glue, make sure you leave the glue on the lash band for at least 30 seconds before applying. This gives time for the glue to come tacky and NOT wet. If the glue is still wet then chances are your falsies will be slipping and sliding everywhere you don’t want them to be!
