How to Apply Fake Eyelashes

Knowing how to apply fake eyelashes is one of the trickiest fashion moves you can pull off. While long, captivating eyelashes adds to a woman’s beauty, poorly applied lashes make you look like an amateur. So if you’re going to enhance your natural beauty by “making your eyes pop”, be stylish about it.

Choose Your Look

Eyelashes can make a radical difference to a woman’s appearance, or they add a subtle nuance to your overall look. The decision is whether to apply a full eyelash makeover, or whether to add some accents to what you already have. Either can be exactly what you’re looking for.

Adding fake eyelashes to the outside of your eyes gives you a sophisticated look that people might not notice at first, but will subtly enhance your natural beauty. A full set of eyelashes is dramatic and eye-catching and can change a woman’s whole appearance. Either way, fake eye lashes help you change your style for a night or weekend.

Coordinate Colors

You want to coordinate the color of your eyelashes, so your fake lashes don’t clash with your normal look. If you have light eyelashes and you put on bold, black fake eyelashes, that’s just going to look strange.

If you have dark eye lashes, buy black ones. This avoids the need for a bunch of gunky black mascara, while drawing attention to the darkness of your eyes. If you’re going out in the evening, purchase brown fake eyelashes for pale natural lashes. The darkness of the evening requires it.

But if you have pale eyelashes, you need to apply blond eyelashes or light brown lashes if you’re going out in the daytime. Women with darker natural eyelashes should use dark brown fake eyelashes during the day, so the lashes will reflect a little more light than black.

Fit Your Eyelashes

When buying fake eyelashes, remember to choose the length you want and the curve that fit your eyes. Length is a matter of taste, so choose accordingly. As far as the line of your eyelashes, coordinate the natural line of your eyelashes with the fake lashes you are buying. It’s a matter of taking those lashes out to their logical conclusion. Otherwise, your regular lashes and the fakes will clash and it will look odd.

Adhesive and Eyelashes

How to Apply Fake Eyelashes

How to Apply Fake Eyelashes

You will use an adhesive or glue to bond your fake eyelashes onto the real things. Apply a tiny amount of glue onto the base of your fake eyelashes. Be sparse. You can always add more later if it’s not enough, but too much glue becomes a mess quickly.

Apply glue to the fake lashes, not your lashes. You don’t want any more glue around your eyes than necessary.

Let the adhesive sit for about a minute.

Apply Lashes while Looking in the Mirror

Here comes the tricky part. You’re going to need to look into a mirror as you apply the false lashes to your eyelashes. Experienced women can do this on a mirror wall in their room. For newbies, I would suggest you get a smaller mirror on a table under a bright light. This gives you maximum visibility when applying the false eyelashes.

Set the fake lashes as close as possible to the “lash line”, trying to be as uniform as can be on each succeeding fake lash. Once again, follow the natural curve of the lash, meaning you’re going to get the directions just right. This can be frustrating at first, so understand that going in and don’t get too frustrated.

Adjust the Lashes

Once you have the lashes applies, you still have time to adjust. Using your fingers or tweezers to adjust your eyelashes ever so slightly. If neither of those work, try using a toothpick for fine adjustments.

Applying Fake Eyelash Tips

The following are a set of applying fake eyelash tips mean to aid you troubleshoot the trouble you may run into when dealing with fake eyelashes.

Using Lash Clumps

Eyelash clumps are falsies with about 10-15 eyelashes per clump, usually applied to the outer edge of your lashes to give you fuller, easier-to-apply eyelashes. Instead of putting on one eyelashes at a time, you’re putting on 15. Brilliant.

When applying an eyelash clump, go through the same steps as above: start completely clean, pick out the right color and size, then add adhesive.

Practice Applying Fake Eyelashes

Practice several times before you try the fake eyelashes at a big event or on a big date. This is a difficult fashion stunt and you’ll want to master how to apply fake eyelashes before you try doing it in prime time.

Removing Eyelashes

You can reuse fake lashes. Simply remove them with a warm compress, which should free up the glue. Don’t yank on your eyelashes, especially if you haven’t loosened them up: that can pull out your real eyelashes. Soak the fake lashes in an eyelash-cleaning solution, to remove gluey residue.
