Step 2: Stick ‘Em on Your Eyelids
What you want to do first is wash your hands and have the lashes, glue, and an eyeliner pencil ready to go. Apply a thin layer of glue along the edge of the false eyelashes (NOT YOUR EYELID). Carefully grab the corners, slightly underneath where the glue is, and place it as close to your natural lash line as possible. The trick is to look down slightly while applying them. Take the end of the eyeliner pencil and press down each section along your eyelid to make sure the lash sticks. Repeat the process with your other eye.
When applying false lashes it’s important to relax! No one can put anything on their eyelid if their hands are shaking. What’s the worst that could happen? If you don’t do it right the first time, just keep on practicing.
Many women wonder whether they should put on mascara before or after the false lashes. I think it’s easier to put on mascara before. Sometimes when you put it on after, the dreaded globby spider effect takes place – not pretty. It really is up to your discretion though. Do what makes you more comfortable.
There you have it, ladies. With a bit of practice, you can look like a rockstar every day. Once you’re really good at it, people won’t even think you’re wearing fake lashes, and that is the biggest compliment of all. Deceptive? Maybe. Awesome? Yes.
