Applying False Eyelashes in the Bat of a Lash!

A passing glance may have more power than you thought. With the bat of an eye, men are left pining and women wondering how to mimic that sultry stare.  False eyelashes are the quickest and easiest way to vamp up any look, whether it may be a night out on the town or your wedding day.
Women are often frightened by the notion of false eyelashes. This may possibly be because of past tribulations or the assumption they are too difficult to apply on your own.  False eyelashes should not be a part of your everyday beauty regimen, rather a treat for special occasions. Gather round darlings, and discover just how easy it is to apply fake lashes without unnecessary drama.
Step 1:
Measure your eye and trim the lashes to fit your own individual eye shape. You may choose to only add lashes to the outside corner of the eyes. This creates a more natural, wispy look. Or for the more daring diva, apply the whole lash strip for a dramatic effect.
Step 2:
Bend the lash strip so that it curves and fits well along your natural lash line. Tip: Hold the lash against the curve of your thumb for 20 seconds, so that the shape holds.
Step 3:
Apply a thin layer of clear eyelash adhesive to the edge of the lash strip. You may find it easier to first apply the glue to the back of your hand and then dab the glue on the strip from there. This ensures you will not accidently apply too much glue. Allow 10-15 seconds for the glue to become tacky before applying the lashes.
Step 4:
Make sure to apply mascara to your natural lashes before applying the false lashes. It is crucial to curl your natural lashes after applying mascara, but before applying the false lashes. The false lashes will blend-in much better when your natural lashes are curled.
Step 5:
Apply lashes as close as possible to the natural lash line and press firmly against the skin. Hold for 10 seconds, allowing glue to adhere. Check to make sure the lashes are placed correctly and press lightly for 30 more seconds to allow glue to dry.
Step 6:
Once the glue has dried, touch up with a thin line of liquid eyeliner and a coat of mascara to fully blend lashes together.
Finito! Your sultry look is complete! Remember practice makes perfect and do not postpone applying fake lashes for the first time right before a big event. After just a few applications, you’ll be a pro!
