How to apply false lashes?
Putting on false eyelashes can be a bit tricky at first, but practice makes perfect and in the end it is not so bad. Follow our step-by-step plan and applying false eyelashes is done in no time!
1: The correct length
Before you start, always apply a small layer of mascara on your own lashes. You actually only do this to make your eyelashes black and thus give the same color as your falsies. Then carefully remove the eyelash from the packaging and check the length of the eyelash band. Do this by placing the false lashes on top of your own lashes and keeping them close to the eye. The lash band should be slightly shorter than the width of the eye and feel comfortable. If the eyelash band is a little too long, you can cut it to the correct length with small scissors. Start with a small piece first and don't cut too much at once. Tip: Always make sure that you put the right eyelash on the right eye. There is a difference between the left and right eyelashes.
2: Apply the eyelash glue
When the eyelashes have been trimmed to the correct length, you can apply the eyelash glue on the eyelash band. Make sure not to use too much glue, a thin layer is enough! Before applying the lashes, let the glue dry for about 30-60 seconds until the glue becomes tacky. With the lashglue from Lashes by Linnie your lashes will stay in place up to 24hrs.
3: Time to lash
If you have little experience, it is easy to apply your eyelashes with an applicator. An eyelash applicator offers a lot of grip and does not damage the fake eyelashes, like tweezers can. Look straight into the mirror so that you have a good view of your eye and stick the false eyelashes as close to your own eyelashes as possible for the most natural result. Then press the lashes firmly against the lash edge and if you feel that they are stuck, slowly release. Make sure to gently press the ends of the lashes. When the lashes have been stuck for 10 minutes and dried, use the applicator or tweezers to 'squeeze' your natural lashes and fake lashes so that they are extra well stuck.
4: Finish your look
When you have finished applying the eyelashes, you can sometimes see a small edge of the skin under your natural eyelash. You can fill this in carefully with a black eye pencil or eyeliner. Note: this can feel very sensitive which can cause your eye to tear, so do this at your own pace. You can also choose to apply eyeliner above the false eyelash band afterwards. By applying eyeliner you 'hide' the eyelash band, which makes it look more natural. Because all our lashes have a black eyelash band, you can also apply the eyeliner before you apply the eyelashes.
Get used to falsies
If you're not used to wearing false lashes, it can feel a little awkward at first. After an hour you will notice that you are quickly used to it and that you (almost) no longer feel the false eyelashes. If you still feel the lashes and it irritates you, it may be that your eyelashes have not been applied correctly. It is best to try again and stick the lashes back on.
