I have done an entry on falsies in the past but a lot of people have been asking about them so here’s a tutorial with pictures. I hope this helps!
Before and After
What you will need:
* A pair of strip false lashes
* Eyelash glue
* Eyelash curler
* Bobby pin or a false lashes clip
Step 1. Do your eye makeup as you would normally and remember to line your top lashes.
Step 2. Choose a pair of strip false lashes that you want to wear. I am wearing a pair of false lashes from Taiwan.
Step 3. Take them out from the box carefully and trim them a little to make sure they fit the shape and length of your eye.
Step 4. Curl your lashes and apply 1-2 coats of mascara.
Step 5. Pick up the falsies with a pair of tweezers or a clip made specifically for applying falsies. Ardell and Sephora both make one.
Step 6. Put some glue on the strip (I love Duo’s Waterproof Eyelash Glue) but avoid putting too much or it will become a mess.
Step 7. Let the glue dry for 5 to 10 seconds or until it turns tacky.
Step 8. Press the strip onto the base of your lashes. Hold for a few seconds.
If you do not have a clip, use the end of a bobby pin to gently press the falsies along your lash line. Start in the middle then work towards the inner and outer corners.
Step 9. Readjust if necessary.
Step 10. Once the glue is completely dry, make sure there are no spaces between your lash line and the fake lashes. If you see a white line, it means the lashes should be put closer to your lash line. You can either start all over or fix the problem by filling in the gap with a black liner.
Step 11. Apply mascara onto your natural lashes so they blend in with the falsies. Alternatively, just curl them with an eyelash curler.
Voila! Big eyes in no time!
