Six simple steps to False Eyelash Application by Aleksandra Stefanovski
For all you lash lovers out there who are mortified by the idea of putting on your own pair of falsies, here’s a few tips to get you lash fabulous in no time.
Step 1: Complete your entire makeup, gently curl your lashes and apply a coat of mascara.
Step 2. .Peel your lashes from the tray by gently using either a pair of tweezers or your fingers. You can bend the eyelash tray back to make the lash pop out; this will allow you to get your fingers or tweezers a better grip on the lash band. Gently peel the lashes holding the lash band from the outer corner in.
Step 3: Bring the lashes up to your eye and measure the width of the lash band. If the false eyelashes extend beyond your eye width, trim the lashes one by one with a small pair of sharp scissors until you have the desired band width.
Step 4: Use your index finger to bend the eyelash strip into a horse shoe shape - this will make the false lashes better fit your eye contour. You can roll the bend of the lash back and forth a few times to reinforce the curvature of the lash.
Step 5: Apply a small dab of adhesive to your wrist or eyelash tray. Using a small toothpick or cotton tip, apply the adhesive to the eyelash band. Wait at least 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky. This is the most critical step. Patience is the key! If you glue is too wet, the lashes will slip off your natural lashes and make application less successful.
Step 6: Hold the false lashes with your tweezers. Looking in the mirror, tilt your head back slightly and position the lashes into place.
Press on the lash band from the inner corner to the outer corners of the eyes, placing them as close to the natural lash line as possible. Hold firmly into place until they set. Alternatively, you can use the Lash Republic placement tool, which grips and hold the lashes for you while you apply your glue and then you can use the tool to position and drop the release and the false eyelash in the correct position.
Remember – the false lashes should be placed on your natural lashes, not on your eyelid.
In Summary -
· Allowing the glue to cure is the key to a successful application.
