Fake eyelashes are an easy way of getting longer and fuller lashes but you need to have a little bit of experience in handing them. It can be very hard to get the hang of applying fake eyelashes. Therefore, in this article, we’ve decided to include some tips to help guide you in the proper application.
It’s better if the eyelashes are curved. The more curved they are, the easier it will be for you to apply them. You don’t need to worry about overdoing it because it can be hard to apply a very straight eyelash onto your eyes. You can curl the fake eyelash in several ways. You can toggle the eyelash band back and forth between your fingers to get it into a U shape. Or you can stick one end of the band to the other creating a tiny eyelash crown. Another way is by wrapping it around a cylindrical object like your blush brush. Just pick whatever method is easier for you. Even the best false eyelashes may be hard to apply so make sure you curl them well into a curve before applying.
Another thing you should remember is that oil makes it hard to apply the lash band to your eyes. This is because it will interfere with the lash adhesive and it will give you a hard time when attaching the eyelash. So if you have naturally oily skin, it’s better to blot some of the oil with an oil blotting sheet. This applies for reusing of fake eyelashes as well. Therefore, it is imperative that you don’t use oil based makeup remover to remove the lashes.
If you’re a beginner, it can be quite difficult to apply it in the first place. One method you can use is keeping a mirror flat on the table and looking down on it with your elbows on either side of it. It will give you a perfect view when it comes to applying the eyelashes. You can also use a swivel mirror as an alternative. What you need to remember is that the mirror always has to be beneath your face to give you a better viewing angle. You can even keep your chin on the table if you feel like you’re shaking.
It’s better to start small so that you get used to it. Start with accent lashes or half lashes that are shorter than the regular. It will be easier to stick them on and easier to handle also. You can also cut the strip of eyelashes into a couple of sections so that you can glue them step by step. In this case, you will have to star applying from the inner area of the eye to the outside.
