Whether you're blessed with naturally voluminous lashes or not, a set of lengthy or dramatic falsies can add a ton of glamour to any makeup look in a matter of seconds. But despite the growing number of people adding false lashes to their beauty routines, the common misconception surrounding them is that they're difficult to apply or look too obvious.
There are, however, lots of different types of false lashes that can be tailored to exactly what you're looking for, whether it's something super-natural or the total opposite. It's all about picking the right pair and knowing how to apply them. Wondering where to start? We've rounded up a few tips on how to wear them, ahead.
1. Apply makeup first: When applying false lashes, remember to apply your makeup beforehand. If lashes are applied before makeup, it may be difficult to correctly place shadow after.
2. There are many options: False eyelashes don’t just come in one shape or size, and there are many options to choose from. There are natural lashes, full, long, short and even individual lashes. No matter what look you’re going for, there are false eyelashes that will work for you.
3. Reuse them: False lashes don’t have to be thrown out after every use. If mascara isn’t applied, use tweezers to take off excess glue and return lashes to original case. When mascara is applied, simply use eye makeup remover to gently clean the lashes. They’ll be just as good the next time you put them on!
4.Cut the lashes: False lashes aren’t designed to fit every eye perfectly, so line lashes up to your lid before applying and cut away excess if necessary. Cutting lashes before applying will make the application process that much easier.
5.Use liquid eyeliners and shadows: Once lashes are applied, some glue residue may still be visible. Don’t worried, though! The lashes don’t have to be removed. Just use your favorite black liquid eyeliner or shadow and apply a light layer to the roots of lashes. This will quickly hide away any glue while creating a bold statement.
