False eyelashes instantly make your eyes look bigger, wide open and awake, and more beautiful. If you’re concerned that false eyelashes are difficult to use or will look unnatural, featured in this Beauty Tutorial are easy-to-follow instructions showing you how to easily apply false eyelashes that look real and embellish your natural beauty.
When you apply false eyelashes properly, people just notice how gorgeous you look (rather than noticing your eyelashes, per say). And, bottom line – isn’t that what we all want?!
How To Apply False Eyelashes in 4 Easy Steps:
1. Curl Eyelashes: To make your eyes look bigger, always start by curling your eyelashes. Using an eyelash curler, gently clamp down at the base of your eyelashes on your upper lids. To create a naturally curved effect, make sure to curl the middle and the tips of the eyelashes as well. Be careful when using an eyelash curler near your eyes, as you can inadvertently pull your eyelashes or pinch your delicate skin if you go too quickly.
2. Use Mascara: Using a lengthening mascara, apply a few coats to your natural eyelashes before you apply false eyelashes. To remove any unwanted clumps of mascara, use a mascara comb to gently separate the eyelashes in between adding more coats of mascara. Don’t use a waterproof mascara, as that type tends to get clumpy.
3. Apply False Eyelashes: If you are inexperienced in applying false eyelashes or prefer the natural look, opt for small clusters of individual false eyelashes. These are not only easier to work with (as they don’t come in long strips), they also look the most life-life when applied. To ensure precision and to prevent eyelash glue from getting on areas you don’t want, use tweezers or an eyelash applicator to apply false eyelashes.
It’s advisable to use a clear eyelash glue, as it becomes unnoticeable when it dries (and is easier to clean up around your eyes). Squeeze a drop of eyelash glue onto the back of your (clean) hand, allowing it to sit for about 30 seconds, to get “tacky”. Then dip the root of the false eyelash into the glue. Nestle the glued part of the false eyelash into the base of your natural eyelashes.
Apply a few clusters starting in the middle of your eye, moving outward. The shorter eyelashes should be in the middle section, while the longer eyelashes should be at the outer corner of your eye (for a glamorous, winged effect). You can always trim the eyelashes using small scissors (after applied), to blend-in better with your natural eyelashes.
4. Use Eyeliner: After you apply false eyelashes to both eyes and have achieved the effect you like, to minimize the appearance of the eyelash glue, using a dark liquid eyeliner, trace a small line along your lash line. This will instantly make any eyelash glue virtually disappear (by filling in gaps and hiding the glue), while adding definition and oomph to your eyes.
Voila! In just 4 easy steps, you’ve learned how to easily apply false eyelashes to make your lashes look full and lush.
