These are super easy to apply and they are comfortable unlike some lashes I've used. I get mine off eBay for around £3 however they're now sold in Boots.
Gluing and applying the lash. My goodness I have got this wrong so many times, too much and you've glued your eye shut, too little and you're desperately trying to shove glue in your lashes and destroying your eye make up in the process.
- Squeeze/Dab some glue on to your eyelash case/anything you don't care too much about and leave it while you're prepping your eye. Do your eyeliner, curl your lashes and pop some mascara on if you want to, you can do this after too but I like to do it before.
- Then either use a cotton bud or the end of a lip liner/pencil to dab the glue along the strip lash. You don't want to drown your lash in glue because it'll be a gooey mess. A thin but full coat is best!
- Applying as close to the lash line on the lashes is the best for me and doesn't ruin your make up. Hold the lashes in the middle and push then you can pat down the outer corners for perfect lashes.
- Holding the lash with some tweezers dip them in a TINY bit of tacky glue.
- They come in different lengths so you can make them look natural placing smaller closer to the inner corner and the longer lashes on the outer corner to get the desired effect.
- With these lashes you need to use single lash glue, I've always used normal strip glue and the reason they don't stay is because you need a different type of glue! Who even knew... maybe only me.
Here are the things that I think are a must for applying lashes.
- A good glue thats fit for purpose, no point in getting black glue if you're doing a natural lash with no eyeliner or strip glue for single lashes. Duo is probably the most well known brand, I happen to use Eylure Lashfix at the moment as it's easy to grab in Boots.
- Tweezers are the best way, in my opinion to apply your lashes to your lash line. My fingers are too chubby to just plonk them on and you get much better precision using tweezers. You can also get a lash applicator but they're glorified tweezers!
- Curling your lashes helps blend your lashes to the falses, it's sometimes very obvious if you've not curled or applied a coat of mascara to your real lashes.
- Cotton buds/Q-tips are good for cleaning up your lash glue nightmares cus getting it on your fingers then touching your lashes = gluey lashes. The worst!
I hope this is in some way helpful to anyone who struggles applying or even keeping lashes on, trying to explain via words and not showing someone is really hard, let me know what you think and if you've got any top tips below.
