Makeup trends change almost every year, but if there is something that has remained since the beginning of makeup, it is long and luscious fake eyelashes. If you dont know much makeup and are just getting started, it is recommended that you read this article, as it will guide you about how to apply false eyelashes in a quick and neat manner.
Steps To Applying Eyelashes
Step One- Sizing the Eyelashes: One common mistake that a lot of people do is that they skip this step, thinking that the eyelashes will fit them just fine. The thing is that no two pair of eyes is the same. There are different types of eyes.
Deep Set Eyes- These eyes have a very prominent brow bone since they are set deeper into the eyes. People with such eyes should try out eye lashes that are longer in the centre and shorter from the sides.
Downturned Eyes- Such eyes are turned downwards towards the corners. If you have such eyes, you should try eyelashes that are longer from the corner so that it can life your eyes and balance the overall look.
Hooded Eyes- The crease in hooded eyes arent visible. People with such eyes should try a thin strip lash that is short in length.
Prominent Eyes- The eyelids in such eyes are projected in the eye socket area. In order to balance the overall look, it is recommended that people with such eyes balance the top lashes with strip lashes on the balance, so that it gives the illusion that of pushed back eyes.
Now that you know that there are different type of eyes, it is important that you size the eyelashes in order to makes sure that it is not too wide for your eyes. The best way to go about is to hold the strip against your eyes and trim down the sides if they are sticking out. If you feel that the lashes are too long and you cant handle that, you should consider getting individual lashes because it gives a very natural look.
Step Two- Applying the Glue
The next step is to apply glue. Take the glue and apply it on the outer seam of the eyelash strip with the help of a small brush or applicator. Make sure that the glue is a bit dry before applying it on your eyes. If you are unable to apply glue this way, the alternate way is to apply glue in the back of your non-dominant hand and then run the eyelash strip along it before applying it.
Step Three- Applying the Eyelash
Place the strip against your eyelid and keep it as close to your natural eyelashes as possible. One great tip is to bring the strip down from above and not from the front because that will ensure that the falsies are right on top of your natural eyelashes.
Step Four- Drying Process
Allow the glue to dry naturally. Do not press or hold it.
Step Five- Apply Mascara
If you want to merge your falsies with your natural ones, apply mascara on the lashes. Blend it carefully in order to give yourself a very natural look. It is recommended that you use black mascara and coat the lashes twice in order to build more volume.
Step Six- Apply Eyeliner
Apply eyeliner on your upper eyelids. Make sure that you fill out the gaps between the falsies, so that everything looks more natural. Use dark eyeliner in order to create an impact.
Step Seven- Using Makeup Remover
If you create a mess during any step, dont worry, as it can be fixed. Take a q-tip and dip it in eye makeup remover and gently rub it over areas that you want to create. This works great for cat eyeliners too. If you want to remove the falsies, rub the q-tip gently along the lash line, let the remover sit for a few minutes and then pull off the strip.
