Every girl wants long, luscious, sexy eyelashes but not everybody is blessed with them. I, myself, have been playing with faux lashes for quite a while and have come up with a few tips on how to put them on quickly and successfully.
Get your faux lashes ready
These are the ones that I use. I got them from the Face Shop, $4 CAD. These are the best lashes that I’ve ever tried, much better than MAC lashes that cost 3 times as much.
SNIP SNIP SNIP
Unless your eyes are super wide, most people will need to snip the ends off of the faux lashes before applying. Faux lashes that are too long will poke the corners of your eyes and cause lots of discomfort!
The side where you snipped (this will be placed at the end of your eye).
Remember, the side where you made the cut (with longer lashes) should be placed at the end of your eye, while the side with the shorter lashes should end up at the front.
This glue is included inside the box and is a very light glue that dries like rubber. You can actually easily peel it off with your fingers when it’s dried. It is white in color when it is wet but will dry transparent.
Put glue on faux lash line
A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. Don’t be greedy because you don’t want a thick line of transparent rubber on your lid when it’s dried. After applying the glue one, wait at least a few seconds for it to become semi-dry and sticky.
P.S: The reason why these lashes look like they have mascara on is because they are old. I usually only wash the lashes once every week. Washing them too much will damage the fibres, causing the lashes to break very easily.
Putting faux lashes on ( I )
Remember again, the side where you snipped goes on the end of your eye!
Putting faux lashes on ( II )
Use your index fingers to gently press the glued lash line onto your natural lash line, starting from the end of your eye towards the front.
“Blending” faux and natural lashes together
This will ensure that your natural lashes will be stuck together with the faux lashes, so that the end result will look more natural.
Haha. Look at the difference! Now, don’t forget to do the other eye!
8. Put another coat of mascara onto the faux lashes after you are done with both eyes. This will make the faux lashes look more like your own.
Crimp Crimp Crimp
Don’t forget to clean your lash crimper after as some of your mascara will get onto it.
You can now do some last touch-ups on any smudges and retrace your eyeline if needed.
10. Taking the faux lashes off
When you get home, you can take those lashes off simply by putting some make up remover or vaseline onto your eyes, wait a couple of seconds, and your faux lashes should come off by themselves.
Try to avoid pulling the faux lashes off with your fingers without any make up remover or vaseline because you don’t want to risk losing some of your natural lashes. Clean your faux lashes with make up remover only if needed, and your lashes should last for at least two weeks!
