Makeup Tutorial: How To Apply False Eyelashes On The Bottom

February 28, 2009

Finally, the much anticipated tutorial on how to apply fake lashes on the bottom!

Full set of strip lashes

Half lashes

What You Will Need

* A pair of strip lashes/half lashes
* Eyelash glue
* Tweezers
* Scissors
* Eyelash curler
* Bobby pin
* Eyeliner
* Mascara

How To

Step 1. Do your eye makeup as you would normally and apply a thin coat of mascara on your bottom lashes.

Step 2. Choose a pair of lashes that you want to wear.

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. Pick up the falsies with a pair of tweezers and apply a thin layer of glue on the strip (I love Duo’s Waterproof Eyelash Glue) but avoid putting too much or it will become a mess. If you plan on placing the lashes on top of your lower lashes, apply glue on the bottom of the strip. If you want to place it under, apply glue on the top of the strip.

When it comes to bottom lashes, I like to place them under my natural lashes so I applied glue on the top of the strip.

Step 5. Let the glue dry for 5 to 10 seconds. Once the glue turns tacky, place the lashes close to your natural lashes.

Step 6. If you are using a full set of lashes, work the middle first before moving onto the inner and outer corners.

Step 7. Readjust if necessary.

Step 8. Once the glue is completely dry, fill in any white gaps between the lashes and your natural lashes with a black liner.

Product Recs
Depending on the effect you want to achieve, you can use individual lashes, half lashes or even a full set of strip lashes on the lower eye.

    interesting post – i’ve been contemplating trying single lashes – does this work better for you? is it different in application process?

    hey babe

    thanks for the TUT but, I am a bit scared of putting on falsies because I have no idea how I will remove them at the end of the day.

    Please advice

    You apply single lashes the same way but remember to put more/the longer ones on the outer corner so it looks more natural.
