HOW TO APPLY FALSE EYELASHES

Roberts easy way to apply false eyelashes that look natural:

  1. Curl your natural eyelashes. If your natural lashes grow straight out and down and you donít curl them, the false lash will also lie straight out and down. Definitely not our goal, so curl first.
  2. Lay a mirror on the table or counter in front of you and look down. This puts your lid in the perfect position, you can see what youíre doing, and youíll be much more comfortable than if you are holding your chin up and looking into a wall mirror, while everything dries out.
  3. Draw a thin line across your upper eyelid right along your lash line with a black eyeliner pencil. This helps you to see where to place the lash and also helps conceal the lash band. Also, if you donít get the false lash in place directly against your natural lashes, no one will know, because the liner assures that no skin shows between your natural lashes and the false ones.
  4. Trim the outside end of your false eyelashes to fit the width of your eyelid. Strip lashes are usually too wide for most eyes. Trimming them will help them fit better and feel more comfortable.
  5. Apply eyelash glue along the false eyelash band. Allow the glue to dry for a minute, so it becomes tacky (slightly sticky), then place the lash right on top of your eyeliner. Using the handle end of a pair of tweezers, push the lash right up against your natural lash line.
  6. Once the glue has dried, apply a coat of mascara, to blend your natural lashes with the false ones.

Want to wear false eyelashes, but want the look to be more natural than a strip? Individual flares and single strands look much more natural but still demand attention. Individual flares and single strands are a breeze to apply. Hereís how:

  1. Curl your natural eyelashes. If your natural lashes grow straight out and down and you donít curl them, the false lash will also lie straight out and down.
  2. Lay a mirror on the table or counter in front of you and look down. This puts your lid in the perfect position, you can see what youíre doing, and youíll be more comfortable than if you are holding your chin up and looking into a wall mirror, while everything dries out.
  3. Apply a layer of mascara to give your natural lashes more bulk and make it easier to attach the false lashes.
  4. Squeeze a dot of lash adhesive onto the lash packaging. This way, you can just dip your lash into the glue. Using a pair of tweezers, grab a flare or single strand. Now dip the root end into the adhesive.
  5. With adhesive on the end of the lash, lay it right on top of one of your own lashes, with the root of the false lash as close as possible to your natural root. Continue all across your lash line, one flare or strand at a time.
  6. When the adhesive has dried, apply another coat of mascara, to blend everything together.
