A Newbies Guide to False Lashes
Always wanted to rock a false lash but never known where to start? We got you! Applying falsies can be intimidating at first, but once you start practicing, we know you’ll fall in love. Follow our top tips below and you will be a #FalsiePro in no time.
Step 1: Selecting the right lash
There are so many different lash styles out there, we can’t blame you for getting overwhelmed. Whilst it might be tempting to skip straight to a bolder style, we recommend starting out with a more subtle natural lash because they are lighter and easier to apply, making them ideal to experiment with!
Step 2: Customising your lashes
Once you’ve chosen the perfect lashes, the first thing you need to do is trim them to fit your eye shape. This ensures that they work seamlessly with your make up and stay put all day long. After you’ve measured them against your lash line, grab a makeup brush and carefully bend the band around the handle. Doing this gives the lash that extra bit of flexibility and stability to stop the corners from lifting during the day.
Step 3: It’s glue time!
Proper glue application can make or break your lash look. Luckily for you, Eylure have an innovation that will make applying lash glue much easier! Our new Line & Lash adhesive pen is a felt-tip pen that lays down a precise line of adhesive, just like your favourite eyeliner! With an easy application in seconds and an all day wear, this product is a must have for all newbies. It comes in two format: clear for a more subtle look and black, that also acts as an eyeliner for a bolder, cat-eye look.
Step 4: Applying your lashes
It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for… it’s time to apply!
If you want to have a flawless lash application, you have to focus on placement. Slapping your lashes on carelessly will undo all the hard work you’ve put in so far! When you’re looking in the mirror, make sure you’re looking downward as you place your falsies along your lash line with either your fingers or eyelash tweezers. This will help to align your lashes at an angle that flows with your natural eye shape. Then, all you have to do is blend your falsies with your natural lashes by applying a light layer of black mascara. Now you’re good to go!
Step 5: Removing your lashes
At the end of the day, remember to take your lashes off before you remove the rest of your make up. Start by dousing a cotton swab in high-quality oil-free make up cleanser to soften the bond between the glue and your skin. Then, gently peel the lash strip off your face, starting with the outer edge.
Once removed, use the same oil-free make up cleanser to wipe away the rest of the glue and mascara residue from the lashes. Air dry them, then pop them back in their original packaging, ready to be reused!
