How To: Apply Faux Lashes with Ease

I wished I learned to apply faux lashes earlier to avoid much discomfort and frustration. After attending a lash party, I now apply falsies with ease and they do make a difference in how a gal look. If a gal eyes are the doorway into her soul then pretty lashes will sure make the doorway extra noticeable and pretty.

This is what I have learn to make applying faux lashes easier:
1. Apply eyeliner prior to adding faux lashes. This way even if faux lashes are not placed exactly, no one can really tell anyway.
2. Make sure faux lashes are appropriately trimmed on the end to fit the width of eyes. I made sure my falsies are slightly shorter than width of my eyes to avoid downward dragging appearance of eyes.
3. Find good glue. I like eyelash glue by PA, a Japanese company. I think the company is called Dear Laura. I found these at a Japanese supermarket.
4. If apply correctly, falsies should not be uncomfortable at all. When applying lashes, do not start at the very beginning of the eye. That is what I thought I needed to do before. I am now applying the beginning of lashes at the start of white line. (see 1) The purpose is to avoid getting falsies getting caught in the crease, which is really uncomfortable.
5. For younger women, apply falsies along the lash line. For more mature gals, falsie end should tilt a little upward to give the eye an appearance of a lift. (see 2)
6. At the end of the night, do not tear falsies off without prepping first. Applying makeup remover on a cotton pad and apply over falsies until you can gently take them off without much effort. Clean falsies and store in original storage until next use.

What else do you do to make applying faux lashes easier??

  4. I usually get falsies when I get my makeup professionally done. Tried applying them once myself and it was a horrific experience! I will give it another shot but on a day when i'm REALLY feeling patient :P

  6. Good tutorial!

    Personally, as I wear very light make up, I can't use those falsies. I prefer individual ones, they look very natural and you can use as many or as little as you like, depending on the event one is attending. I like those from Sephora and Make up for Ever.

  8. I also put eyeliner first - in case it doesn't go on straight. Plus it's easier applying the makeup touches rather than makeup around the lashes.

  9. Before I learned to apply eyeliner first, I struggled with applying eyeliner afterward and nothing looked right. : )
