Step 1: Check the Fit
Like shoes, eyelashes are designed to fit general eyelid sizes. This is why it’s important to always check the size of the false lashes to your own eye before applying them. If they are too long either across the width or the length, trim them to a size you’re comfortable with.
Step 2: Apply the Glue
Once sized correctly, take the eyelash glue and apply it to the seam of the fake lashes. You can also apply the glue to your hand and press the seam into that.
Step 3: Attach the Lashes
Now that the glue is applied, press the seam onto your eyelid as close to your natural eyelashes as possible. Remember, the more realistic it looks, the better (unless you’re going for a stylized extreme). During this step, do not press or hold the lashes down. Simply allow the glue to dry by not touching them once they have been placed.
Step 4: Put on the Makeup
Now that they are firmly situated on your face, it’s time to apply the makeup. Ideally, you’ll want to use both mascara and eyeliner to blend the seam of the false lashes so that they look natural.
Step 5: Remove Them
Following your exciting night out, don’t forget to take the lashes off. To do this, simply soak a Q-tip in eye makeup remover and rub it gently across where the seam of the fake lashes is pressed onto your eyelid. Allow that to sit for a minute before gently removing the false lashes.
