First Step

You should visit the best beauty supply store in your local area and ask the cosmetician for the following tools that you will need or you can shop online to find what you want for the process.

  • Strip Lashes
  • Lash Glue

  • Mascara
  • Liquid Liner
  • Square Tip Tweezers

Things to note; you need buy the best lashes among different brands do not go to the cheap plastic lash strips. They need to be light in weight, silky feathery and soft to touch. Remember that there are different types and sizes, and it all depends on your eye shape.

Second Step

Once you have everything you need and you have chosen the style of your strip lashes, you need to measure.

Hold the lash strip up to your eye to check its length against your eye. It should not be too long or it will be uncomfortable and give you a droopy eye look. I use a simple rule which; I keep it 75% of the eye length ans cut the rest.How to measure false lash on your eyes

Third Step

Now curl your natural lashes with the eyelash curler by squeezing the curler gently at the base of your lashes and hold for five seconds max. Then if your lash strip were too long when you measured them, then cut them to fit. Cut the end of the lash with a pair of small scissors to create the perfect fit.

Fourth Step

After trimming the lash strip to fit your eye shape, gently bend the lash into a U or C shape holing for a couple of seconds, this will prep the lashes for your natural hairs.

Then hold the tip of the lashes with your tweezers and gently apply the lash glue to the strip of the lashes. You do not need a lot of glue, all you need is a drop and drag it along which streaks along the lash strip. Leave for about 20-30 seconds to air, so the glue can start to set and in-turn the lashes will sit tight on your lash lids once placed.

Client Question:

How to Put on Fake Eyelashes Without Glue?

Yes you can; only if the lashes are self adhesive lashes or magnetic lashes. These two types of lashes have been designed for people who have allergies to lash glue and as a quicker and even easier method of applying fake lashes.

Fifth Step

Using the tweezers place the eyelashes as close as your lash line as possible, by closing one eye and gently pulling your skin taut near the outer corner of the eye. It might be easier to start from the outer corner and work it gently inwards. If this seems a bit hard then try starting from the center to the inner corner then move to the outer corner of your eye, then gently press the lashes down onto your lash line skin.

You can use a brush with a thin handle to press the false lashes in and upwards position rather than straight to the front. This will create a fuller look.

Sixth Step

This step is optional as not applying mascara can allow you to reuse your strip lashes as long they are not damaged and you have not slobbered them with glue. But the reason why some artists or people apply mascara on their false lashes is to help blend your lashes with your fake lashes giving it a more natural dramatic look.

So apply the mascara ensuring that the false eyelash band with your natural lashes, you can put as many layers as you usually put but I would recommend 2 layers, as at the end of the day you have opted in to use fake lashes so you do not use mascara!Best Masacra To Use

Client Question

“Do I Put Mascara on Before Fake Lashes?”

Yes you can put mascara on before fake lashes, by applying the mascara over your natural lashes, doing this you are going to make them stand out even more, and this will give a much better result

I always put mascara on before false lashes because it helps the fake lashes better adhere to my natural lash hairs. If you are going to put on mascara before your fake eyelashes, then remember to always let your mascara dry completely before putting on your false eyelashes especially if you are planing on re-using them.

Seventh Step

Once the glue is completely dry and to create a more natural looking lash line, cover both the real and fake fringe with one long swipe of dark brown or black liquid eyeliner, filling in any white gaps (glue residue) between your lashes and the false lashes.
