I decided to do this video geared towards beginners because, pretty much if you do not know how to apply false lashes, or you are fairly new than you will be considered a beginner, and hopefully my tips and tricks can help you learn how to apply false lashes easily. They don’t have to be scary! You’re not going to glue your eyes together or anything like that.
If you follow these steps than they should come out pretty good every time! But if you are excited for this video than definitely keep on watching. So the first thing you wanna do before applying your lashes would be to find out what your lash style is. There are a ton of different lashes types, lash styles. There could be synthetic lashes, mink lashes, natural hair lashes, and even silk lashes. There is also band lashes, which is what I will be applying today. There are half lashes which are lashes that just go on the outer part of your eyes. And even individual lashes. Then you have to decide what style of lashes you would like. Do you want something more natural, or whispy? Do you want something more bombshell, and like voluminous lashes? You just have to choose the style you would be interested in. There are also a ton of brands you can choose from.
There’s some really great drugstore eyelashes you can wear. My personal favorites would be the Ardell Lashes, and the KISS Lashes. Ardell Demi Wispies are by far my favorite drugstore lashes, and they go for about $4-$5. Mink Lashes are on the pricey side. They range between $25 to $35 depending on the brand. Nubounsom is like between $25 to $35 as well as Velour Lashes and Everblinks. The ones ‘m wearing today are actually cruelty free. They use the fur that is shed from the mink. They don’t harm minks in any way. They consider themselves cruelty free and they’re also really really soft and hand made. Alot of mink lashes are like that. So you will get more for your buck; they are pricey but they will last you longer, better quality, you can wash them and reuse them many times. So some tools you want to have would be a lash curler, Mascara. You definitely want the lash glue. This is the duo eyelash adhesive. You want some tweezers just to make applying the lashes a lot easier. And than a little scissors or any pair of scissors to do some trimming. Optional would be some eye liner just to apply over the top; and I will talk about that in a little bit.
Now were getting into the steps. Step 1 is you want to curl your lashes, and then apply a thin coat of mascara. By doing this you will kind of add like a nice base to your lashes. Your lashes will be curled and they wont be weighed down by the false lashes because that can happen. Next you want to grab the false lashes that you choose, and then just line them up with your own lash line see how long the band is.
If you find that it’s way too long for your eye, you’ll want to trim them. These particular ones were not too long for my eyes, so I just trimmed the two end pieces. Because there was a little extra piece. It’s important that you trim them because I’ve had lashes that are way too long for me and they would like poke me in the inner part of my eye. And it was not comfortable. You want to make sure they fit, and that way they also look more natural and they look better.
Next you want to apply the eyelash adhesive of your choice. I’m using the duo lash glue in the white clear. So you want to apply a very thin layer to the band of the lashes and than just let it dry. What I like doing is shaking it in the air just to make sure that it gets a little bit tacky. And by applying a very thin layer of glue it wont take long for the glue to be tacky. If you add too much glue it’s gonna take forever. Then you want to take your tweezers and make sure you use that to apply. You can use your fingers or like an eyelash applyer as well. I find tweezers to be the easiest thing to apply my lashes with. And, a tip is to just grab them in the middle and apply them right in the center of your eye. Once you do that you want to take it and slide the band all the way to the outer most corner of your lashes.
That way they look more natural and their not all concentrated on the center of your eyes. And, they should fit every single time by doing this trick. Once I started doing this, they almost always looked the way they were supposed to. When I first started applying false lashes they always looked very center heavy because I had no idea what I was doing. So once they are dry some tips you can do to kind of blend them in with your lashes a little bit more would be to take a liquid liner of some sort and just run it along the lash glue.
Anything that could have happened to the glue you can fix with the eyeliner. So I just like to take any liquid liner and just run it all along the lash band, that way it blends it in with your eye more. And then you can also take a little bit more mascara and just add it to the bottom coats to blend in.
That way you dont have that double lash effect, and it blends with your eyes perfectly. So that is my How To Apply False Lashes video. I really hope you all enjoyed it. Hopefully it was very easy to follow! And hopefully you learned some new tips and tricks on applying lashes. I figured I would do this video because I rarely ever apply lashes on camera in tutorials. I need to be like this close to the mirror so that I can see what I’m doing.
Especially these Everblinks because I really love the lashes that I’m wearing now. They’re called Lash Whisperer is the style so i’ll have that listed down below so you guys can check them out if you love wispy lashes like I do.
