If you are using false eyelashes that are connected by a strip, you will want to make sure you trim the ends to fit your eye shape. false eyelashes typically come in one size, so before you glue them down, lay the fake eyelashes along your lash line. Make sure that they are not lying too close to your inner corner and trim whatever is poking out past your eye. The important thing is to always trim your lashes from the outer corner.
Now comes the tricky part: gluing those suckers down. Usually, there will already be a semi–sticky base to the false eyelashes. This is there so they will stick to packaging, but it’s not strong enough to stick to your eyes.
Take your chosen lash glue and apply to the outer part of the strip. This can be done two ways brushing on with the application the glue comes with or squeezing the glue out on the back of your hand and gently sweeping the outer part along it. Allow it to dry to the point where the glue is tacky; if you apply while the glue is fresh, you risk making a mess on your eyelids.
Place your lash strip on your eyelid and try to get it as close as possible to your natural lash line. Definitely do not place the false eyelashes on your actual lashes because you will risk tearing out a few of your own. If you have trouble placing the eyelashes by hand, try using a pair of tweezers or an eyelash applicator. Now allow the glue to dry fully on your eyes, but no need to press down and hold them.
If you want to reuse them a few times, try to avoid using mascara to blend them with your natural lashes. Instead, comb through them with a clean spooly brush and apply some liquid liner to blend them on your upper lids. Not using mascara directly on your false eyelashes will ensure them a long life.
Before applying single lashes, make sure you set aside some time. Depending on how many bunches you are adding on, this could take up to an hour or two. Because you will be applying more than a few, add a small amount of glue to a clean area, a sandwich bag or a piece aluminum foil will do, and lightly dip the semi–sticky ends, allow to get tacky, then apply where you would like them. The great thing about these lashes is you can apply as little or as many as you want. Reusing them might be a little difficult, but the end result mimics that of eyelash extensions.
