But first – let’s choose the type

The type of false eyelashes depends mainly on the size and shape of your eyelids and also on the event. There are three basic lengths: S, M and L. There are also various types of curls, colours and sets available. You will also need hypoallergenic glue, a pair of tweezers and mirrors.

How to apply false eyelashes?

Regardless of whether you apply false eyelashes on the upper or lower eyelid, the rules are always the same. Hold your elbows on a table so that you are stable. Also, make sure the lamp doesn’t cast any shadows on your face. Keep in mind that the false eyelashes should be applied as the last stage of your makeup. That is why, you should apply mascara, curl your natural eyelashes and add some eyeliner before you start. Carefully take the eyelashes out of the lash tray with the use of tweezers, dip them into the drop of glue and press this adhesive to the natural lash base and hold for one second. Make sure you don’t use too much glue as it might ruin the final effect. The last step is to apply mascara on your eyelashes.

Natural vs false eyelashes

If you apply eyelashes on the upper eyelid, just use a few individual eyelashes to get a better density. If you want to look more original and fashionable, apply them on your lower eyelid. You can also experiment with the sizes, lengths and colours.

False eyelashes – tips

If you need to make some corrections, immediately remove the eyelash and apply a new one. Do not apply too many individual eyelashes close to your outer corner of the eye as it may give an impression of a drooping eyelid. The best idea is to apply individual eyelashes of different lengths to your upper eyelid – it gives the most natural effect. In the inner corner glue the shortest eyelashes, and on the opposite side of the eyelid – slightly longer. In the center of your eye you should apply the longest eyelashes.
