Curl your eyelashes.
Hold the lash strip up to your eye to check length. Trim the band from the outer corner of the lash strip if necessary.
Hold both edges in a U-shape for a few seconds to bend the lashes.
Apply adhesive along the band and wait 30 seconds.
Secure the lashes by pressing onto the lash line. You can use a tweezer if necessary.
Finish with one coat mascara to blend the eyelashes together with your own lashes. Fill up with eyeliner if any gaps appear.
Sizing Your Lashes
If you are using a strip, size them to your eye and then trim them down with cuticle scissors. Strips that are too long are incredibly hard to maneuver.
Putting Them On
Remember to practice—no one gets it right their first time! First, squeeze a drop of adhesive on the back of your hand and use a cuticle stick to lightly dab on the glue to the lash. Wait about 30 seconds for the glue to get tacky, then lay the strip on the outer edge of your eye, as close to the lash line as possible. Make sure the angle of your false lashes is the same as the angle of your own lashes. Use 1-2 coats of mascara to blend.
Taking Them Off
When it comes to removal, use an oil-free eye makeup remover to soften the glue and then allow the lash to slide right off. Easy, right?
Storing Your Lashes
You might not know this, but—yes!—false eyelashes can be reusable. Make sure not to use any oil-based cleansers on the lash, as that will make additional uses very difficult (adhesive does not like to attach to an oily surface). Peel any remaining pieces of glue off the lash and use eye makeup remover and a Q-tip to clean it more thoroughly. Store your lashes in a clean plastic container and they’ll be ready for your next big night out!
