I don’t normally wear false lashes but I decided to throw em’ on and feel glamorous for a few days. Here’s a tutorial on how I apply them.
I always use individual lashes with the knot if I want to have them in for a few days. I use strips for a one day application.
These come in brown also!
I use both short and medium lengths. Starting with medium on the outside and finishing with short on the inner lid. I think it looks more natural that way.
Confession: I am not loyal to any one brand of glue when it comes to individual lashes. I am a one-glue-girl when it comes to bands: Duo glue. For these individual lashes I used Sassi Eyelash Glue in Dark
Why am I not committed to one glue for individual lashes? Because I feel like eyelash prep determines glue performance. Now, don’t get me wrong! I’m not gonna whip out my kids Elmer’s in a pinch. I always buy black, semi permanent and I always buy separate. I don’t trust that little tiny tube that comes in the pack. It’s a joke! Moving on to prep:
Clean lashes = more days of fabulousness! Dirty lashes = frustration. I clean my lashes with disposable lipgloss applicators and toner. Just wipe em clean. I don’t use cotton swabs or cotton balls cause getting a cotton fiber in your eye is the worst. Period. So, prep and let them dry.
I use tweezers to pull the lash off. I also turn the box upside down and pull up.
