Here is an in-depth & step-by-step tutorial on how to apply false lashes, with my tips & tricks, from my own learning experience! I hope this helps! XOXO!
Start by lining your lash line black and tight-lining
Apply a coat of mascara – add mascara with cheaper falsies or if you need it to help blend. But when you’re working with $25 lashes, I never re-coat them because you lose the longevity of the 20-25 wear uses
When looking down at the case, right eye goes with right
Measure the lashes to fit your eye shape & cut from the outside!
You are actually better to cut too short if there is an accident on length to be made because too long will irritate the crap out of your eyes
House of Lashes glue seems to be the best out of that, Velour lash, & Duo
Start with a clear lash band – black bands are WAY more stiff and difficult to work with
You can cut the lashes into halves or thirds – but start by applying the pieces from the inner corner
Wrap the lashes around a brush, pen, whatever
Apply a light layer of glue but enough to cover the entire band
Let it sit for AT LEAST 1 minute – I usually do about a minute and a half
Trial and error – some people find it easier to look down, I like to look fairly straight on
You want to get it as close to the lash line as possible, placing it in the middle, then breathe for a second. Maneuver the inside corner and then the outside corner
You should use the lash tool but I use tweezers
Coat the lashband with liquid liner when you’re done
Carry glue and twizzers with you because you never know when an inner corner might pop up!
It is SUCH a learning curve and beyond frustrating. Do not give up. It took me 4 or 5 months to get and I still struggle from time to time.
Don’t start by applying them to any kind of glitter or sparkle look
Take care and store them, lightly take off glue, I gently pull mine off
You can look down on a table, have the mirror flat or a shorter vanity mirror, so that you can have both arms/elbows resting on the table for more steady hands
Start with less dramatic lashes
You want a clear glue because black can easily turn into a disaster
