Before Applying False Eyelashes

Before Applying False Eyelashes

You may need: small scissors, free standing magnifying mirror, eyelash glue, tweezers, and eyeliner or eye shadow brush with a small round clean end, cotton pads, a small piece of aluminum foil or plastic sheet for the glue, and a tooth pick.

Consider the look you want to achieve. Eyelashes come as either a full set to provide a dramatic and glamorous look, ideal for evening, small clumps which are applied to the outer edge of your lid for a subtle understated but well groomed look or as individual lashes to infill spaces and give a lighter look. They come in different shades so a natural look to match your own lash color is possible.

Choose a color that complements the occasion. For evening, stick to black (or dark brown if you have pale lashes), which adds drama without requiring mascara. In the daytime, go dark brown (light brown or blond if you have pale lashes) for a natural look.

Make sure all oil is off your eyelids. You could use a Toner-Astringent with tissue or a thin washcloth to remove all oils after cleansing.

If you like, you can mascara your natural eyelashes before applying the false ones – top and bottom because somehow it seems to make them look even more natural.
