How To Apply Eyelashes To Yourself

We will first start with how to remove false eyelashes from the box or pallet and then learn step by step we will finally end with applying eye mascara.

Step 1: Gently Remove Eyelashes From Palette:

The first step is to gently remove false eyelashes from the pallet or box so that they will not break in the start itself.

Take a Tweezer and hold the corner of the lash band and not the lashes and then pull it with very light pressure. If you try it with your nails it may break with high pressure of fingers.

The second option is to gently pull the lashes down so that they will easily detach from the box. I prefer the first one as there is no risk to the lashes.

Step 2: Give a C shape to the false eyelashes

Once you detached the lashes try to bend it inward or simply give it a ‘C’ shape so that it easily gets your eye shape.

Hold the lashes in the first two fingers and push them inward 6-7 times.
Do the same for both the lashes.

Step 3: Measure and Trim the size of False Eyelashes

It is so important to apply a false lash that perfectly fits your lashes size to make it look real.

Take a false eyelash and put it on your eye slightly away from the inner eye corner as we never start eyelashes from the inner corner.

Cut out if the length is larger than that of your original eyelashes.

Always cut the lashes from the outer corner and never cut them from the inner corner.

Step 4: Curl Your Own eyelashes

The first thing to do with your own lashes is to curl them with the eyelashes curler.

This step is needed to perfectly match the direction of your own eyelashes with the false one.

Curl the lashes for 10 seconds in an upward direction so that it gets the same shape as false eyelashes.

Step 5: Apply Mascara To Your Eyelashes

This is the optional step and not everyone follows this but those who have very straight lashes and found it difficult to curl with a curler should do this step.

Take your favorite mascara and apply it in an upward direction to after you curl your lashes.

If your lashes get easily curled with a curler then you can just avoid this step.

Step 6: Apply Glue on the False Eyelashes

The next step is to apply glue to the false eyelashes and you can do it in the following three ways.

The first is to take glue on your hand and dab the top of the false lash band on it.

The second way is to apply glue on the false lash with the help of the tweezer tip.

The third way is to apply glue just above your eyelashes closed to the lash’s hair and then put false lashes on the glue.

Make sure to wait for the glue to dry a little after you apply it.

Step 7: Stick the False Eyelashes On Your Eyes

This is the most important step to apply eyelashes to yourself. Carefully follow the steps to stick lashes correctly.

Hold the lashes in the middle with the help of a tweezer and put them in the center of the eyelid and let it settle for 10 seconds.

Then with the tweezer stick the outer corner first and then stick the inner corner.

Make sure you stick the false eyelashes on the eye skin near the original lashes. The difference between the two should not be visible.

Step 8: Apply Mascara Again

To give a natural final look to your eyelashes give a few pinches to it so that it fills the gaps and applies mascara to the lashes.

This step will fill the gaps between the original and false lashes and make them appear more real hence never forget this step.
