Easier To Use Eyelashes2018-07-10
In order to use the false eyelashes easier, there are a few hacks that you need to get used to.
First you need to measure the lashes to make sure that they fit. Set the strip along your lash line and see if it is necessary to trim it. Start from where your natural eyelashes begin as any closer may irritate your eye. It is also advisable to end a few (2-4) eyelashes before the outer corner. Thus, the false strip will pass more naturally to your look.
Once you are ready with the measurement, you need to trim the lashes. Cut them from the outside edge and not through the lashes.
Make your lash band curvy. It is easier to apply the false eyelashes if they are curvy and not straight. There are few tricks that you can use to achieve the effect. You can wrap them around your makeup brush or any other cylindrical object. You can also adhere one end of the lash strip to the other. Thus creating a mini crown. The other way to make the curve is by toggling the lash band between your fingers into a U shape. Note that eyelashes that are made of 100% human hair will bend easier.
Apply the glue correctly. Place a thin layer of glue on the vein of the lash from corner to corner and wait a few seconds to settle before application. You can also use the double-adhesive technique and dot some glue along your lash line as well.
Make sure your eye lids are oil-free. Oil prevents the adhesive from sticking well, so if your eyelids tend to be oilier, make sure to blot them first. Also, if you are using your falsies more than once, make sure to use oil-free makeup remover to take them off.
Cut the eyelashes for easier application. You can also cut your falsies into two or three parts if you are struggling with their application. In this case you can apply part of them only to the outer corner of your eyes for a more natural look. If you cut the strip into three, apply the innermost section first and then continue with the middle and the outermost one. Do not cut thick false eyelashes, though, as it will be very visible when you apply them to your eyes.
Look down and have your elbows on the surface for an easier application of the eyelashes.
Clean your eyelashes by soaking them into hot water and washing up liquid.
