How to Apply False Eyelashes Naturally

It's been awhile since I posted a tutorial~ so today, I'll be doing a tutorial of how to apply false eyelashes naturally (read: how I put on my falsies). Putting on falsies could be as tricky, but with the right tool, we can do it easily without any hassle.

First thing first, the most important thing is to get the right lashes, Tons varieties of falsies are available out there, from the most natural one to the gaudy one. You can choose a full set falsies or individual falsies that comes in a cluster. For those who just getting started, it's better to start off with natural lashes.

Falsies comes in different length, this doesn't mean you should trim your falsies to perfectly match your eye. You can use longer falsies to get sexy and sultry look, or even cute and dolly (like how Gyaru put on their falsies). But if you opted to look more natural, choose a shorter lashes.

Tips: before you measure your falsies, bend it inward to create a C shape and do that several times to soften the band.

Place your eyelashes (without glue) on your eyelid to see how much you should snip off the outer corner. Then trim the fake eyelashes off with small scissors.

You will need a high quality eyelash glue. My favorite is DUO EYELASH ADHESIVE.  I swear this is one of the best eyelash adhesive you could easily find (available at sephora too!). It gives lasting result and your falsies would last longer because the glue won't damage your falsies.

Put generous amount of glue especially to the inner and outer corner of the lash. You want you falsies to stay put without the corner lifting up. When it happens, you can use a small eyeliner brush to fix it. Small brush like Sigma eyeliner brush E10 will do. (always let the glue sit for  10~20secs before putting it on)

You can opt for two things, wear the falsies with or without, before or after eye make-up. it's totally up to you. For me, I usually wear my falsies after I had my eye make-up done. Eyeshadow, base and eyeliner are optional, but these two things are mandatory: Eyelash curler and mascara, Be sure to curl your eyelashes and put on mascara beforehand.

To apply falsies, start with placing it tightly to the base of your natural lash line. Work on it starting from the midle to inner and outer corner of your eye.

If your hand is not steady, you can use tweezers to help you putting on false eyelashes. a couple seconds after you put it on your eyelids, open your eyes and blink, check if it's poking your eyes or tugging your lids. If it doesn't feel comfortable, adjust it a bit. If you see a gap showing between your lash line and the falsies, pull it off and start over.

To prevent the outer and inner corner lifting up, use your hand or tweezers to hold the falsies for 10~20seconds to make sure it adheres perfectly.

Allow the glue to naturally dry. After that you can retouch your eyemakeup, like adding mascara so that your real lashes would blend in with the false one, or adding more eyeliner.

Yay, False eyelashes are nicely attached!
To remove, gently pull it of starting from the inner corner to outer corner. Don't tug your eyelids hardly~ if it's hard to remove, put a small amount of eye makeup remover to cotton swab and use it to loosen the glue.
High quality false eyelashes could be used several times if you take a good care of it~

That's it for now, I hope you will find this tutorial helpful :)
