Guide: How To Apply False Eyelashes
Why applying false lashes properly is so important!
Have you ever had trouble applying false eyelashes? They don’t stick, they look weird, it takes forever? If you are a newbie in the false eyelash world, we know it can be quite daunting. It takes practice to get your falsies on and looking perfect each and every time. Don’t worry though, that is why we have put together this simple, easy to follow and fool proof guide full of tips and tricks for a seamless application.
Follow our four simple steps:
Step One: Remove Lash Envy Beauty Lashes From Box
Carefully remove the false eyelashes from the tray with a pair of tweezers or our Lash Envy Beauty Applicator tweezers. Hold the lashes from the false eyelash band. Alternatively, you could use your fingers to gently remove your Lash Envy Beauty lashes. It’s what ever method you find easiest.
Step Two: Lash Fitting
Place the lash strip across your natural lash line. Decide if the lashes are too long for your eye shape or not. If so, you will need to trim the false eyelashes to fit. With a pair of scissors, carefully cut off the excess that is longer than your lash line. This step is very important as it is this part that will ensure your lashes look perfect for your eye shape. If the lash strip is longer than your natural lash line, the falsies will not sit properly on your eyelid and therefore they will look unbalanced!
Step Three: Apply Lash Adhesive
Apply a thin layer of lash glue along the lash strip. It is important that you wait 20 – 30 seconds before applying as this allows time for the glue to become tacky. When the glue is tacky, your falsies will stick properly. If the glue is to wet, it will be harder to apply as it will slip around everywhere! Tacky glue also means better, cleaner and easier application!
Extra tip: Never use cheap or unbranded glue. It is likely to be unsuitable for use around eyes and could irritate or burn your eyes! We suggest sticking to brands such as Duo glue.
Step Four: Lash On!
Gently place the lash strip on the center base of your natural lash line. Then continue to the inner and outer base of your natural lash line. We recommend using the Lash Envy Beauty Applicator Tool to make it a simple and mess free process. Slightly press along the lashes to stick them as close to your natural lash line as possible. The closer you get, the more seamless the lashes will look!
Extra tip: When placing your falsies onto your natural lash line, position the false eyelashes coming down onto your lash line. This makes sure the lashes sit properly and won’t hang downwards.
