How To Apply False Eyelashes

1.  Take out the lashes from the box

When removing the eyelashes from the box, hold them in the packet under your nose with the lashes facing outwards. By so doing, you will be able to identify the left and right lashes as they aren’t always marked.

2. Measure the size of the lashes

You have to do this to be sure the lashes aren’t too wide for your eyes. If the lashes are longer than you’d prefer, trim them down to make it seem natural. Lashes should be longer toward the outer corner of the eye.

3. Apply the glue

To do this, you either apply the glue with an applicator or a brush along the vein of the lashes from corner to corner or you squeeze a thin line of lash glue onto the back of your free hand and gently run the outer seam of the eyelash strip along it.

4. Apply the eyelashes

Knowing where to apply your false eyelashes is very important. You should place them where your natural eyelashes begin. Simply look down and press the strip lash against your lash line in the center, the outer edge and inner corner.

5. Allow the glue to dry naturally

Once you fix the strip, you do not need to press or hold it. Just allow the glue dry on its own.

6. Use your mascara

Mascara will help you achieve a more natural look by blending your natural lashes with the false ones. You can use black, brown, or dark gray mascara, whichever one your prefer.

7. Apply your liquid eyeliner

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or sketching fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
