You Will Need
- Some clear-drying eyelash adhesive
- 2.0 full strips of false lashes
- A clean surface
- A pair of small scissors
- Some pencil or liquid eyeliner
- A pair of tweezers
- A toothpick
- A mirror
- An eyelash curler
- And some mascara
Put adhesive on surface
Put two or three drops of adhesive onto a clean surface.
Measure against your lashes
Hold a strip up to one upper eyelid to measure its length against your natural lash line. Trim the outer edge of the false lashes until the strip is as long as your natural lashes.
Pick up with tweezers
Pick up a fake lash strip with the tweezers.
Dip a toothpick in the glue and apply it along the length of a strip's base.
Blow on strip
Blow on the strip for a few seconds until the glue is tacky.
Place strip on eye
Guide the false lash strip to your upper lash line with the tweezers, placing it as close to the base as possible.
Allow glue to set
Hold the lash strip in place for a few seconds to allow the glue to set.
Repeat on other lid
Repeat on the other lid, trimming the strip to the right length, and gluing the strip to your lid.
Allow lashes to dry
Allow the lashes to dry for at least 30 seconds.
Apply a thin line of eyeliner to your upper lash line. If you have trouble drawing a straight line, make small dots along the base between your lashes, staying as close to the roots as possible.
Curl the lashes to fuse the falsies with your natural lashes.
Apply mascara to both eyes, concentrating at the base of your lash line to further adhere the false and natural lashes together.
