DO CUT YOUR LASHES

For the lashes to look natural, you have to make sure they’re the right length for your eye. Generally, lashes come a little longer than the average eye, so you’ll need to cut them to size.

DON’T CUT THE INSIDE LASH

When cutting the lashes, NEVER cut the inside corner of the lashes. ALWAYS cut from the outside end.

DO PREP YOUR ACTUAL LASHES

Before the false ones go on, you’ve got to give your real lashes some TLC! Prep them as you normally would, with mascara and any other lash product you use.

DON’T PUT TOO MUCH GLUE ON THE LASHES

You only want to apply a thin layer of glue across the whole lash line – feel free to put a little extra in the corners, but don’t put that amount over the whole lash line. If you do this, the glue will smush and be visible on your eyelid. And that is not such a cute look.

DO WAIT FOR THE GLUE TO DRY

Never put lashes on right after you’ve applied glue! Wait for the glue to get tacky, but not so long that the glue isn’t sticky any more. About 30 seconds should do. Try giving the lashes a bend to make the application that much easier.

DON’T PUT THE LASHES ON DOWNWARD

When applying the lashes, don’t approach the eyelid straight on or from up above. Always come from upward, with your head tilted up and your eyes open, so you can see what you’re doing!

DO PUT THE LASHES RIGHT ABOVE YOUR LASH LINE

For this last step, you need to find a delicate balance. While you don’t want a strip of skin showing between your real lashes and your fake lashes you also don’t want to put your false lashes right on your real ones. Directly above your real lash line is the key!

To blend the two lashes, press them together and push them gently upward with your fingers to make the falsies look as real as possible.

There you have it! Some basic do’s and do not’s on wearing fake lashes like a pro. What do you think of these tips? Do you feel confident enough to try falsies for yourself now?
