If you’re a first-timer or newbie lash user, don’t go for a super heavy full strip of lashes. Opt for lighter, small lashes (or sections of them) that won’t weigh down your lashes or feel uncomfortable. To make application even easier, make up artists advises bending the lash in half while the glue is drying to soften it and tilting your head to look down into a mirror for the best visibility.
The shape of your eyes is also an important detail to remember when purchasing lashes. For example, if your eyes are hooded, go for lash strips that are longer in the middle to help open up the eyes. If your eyes are round, opt for curly lashes to accentuate the outer corners.
Little details like band color are crucial for having your lashes look the most natural. A nude or transparent band color will look more natural, whereas a black band color will add some more definition to your eyes. Regardless of which color you choose, if you want your lashes to look even more natural, advises to “camouflage the lash band by applying black gel or liquid liner.”
How do you apply false eyelashes?
The correct way to apply false eyelashes depends on which type you’re using. For cluster lashes (small gatherings of a few lash hairs), makeup artist recommends wiggling lash glue right alongside the root of your lashes, then setting the cluster lash on top and gently pressing to fuse it.
For individual lashes, makeup artist says knot-free versions create a more natural look, and you only need one or two on the outer corners to provide more extension. Strip lashes are one of the easiest methods, as it gives you a full set of volume in just one step—you can use the back of your hand as a surface for applying the glue, and be sure to check beforehand whether you need to cut the lash to better fit your eye. With all of these, don’t be afraid to adjust your lashes as the glue is drying, and finish the process with a final coat of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false ones you’ve applied.
How do you remove false eyelashes?
The process of removing false lashes applied with an adhesive glue is easy. “Just gently tug on the inner corner of the lash (being careful not to tug your own real lashes!) while holding down your eyelid with another finger/hand,” she explains. “You can also get the adhesive started by applying an oil-based makeup remover to the lash line with a cotton swab and gently rubbing it against the lash line where the adhesive is.”
Can you reuse false eyelashes?
Yes! It’s fine to reuse false eyelashes, as long as you clean them properly. However, you should never reuse someone else’s lashes, and makeup artists should always use a new strip on each client. That being said, if you gently remove glue from your lashes using tweezers before cleansing with oil-free makeup remover, rinsing it off with a tiny bit of water, and sanitizing with alcohol before letting them air dry, your false lashes should be good to go for your next night out.
How long do false eyelashes last?
Generally, false lashes last one to two days, depending on if you touch your eyes a lot and/or apply the proper amount of adhesive,Just make sure you are still removing your makeup even if you want to keep your lashes on for more than one day.
