Makeup artist Katie Livingston tells us how to easily apply false lashes that don’t look fake. Katie has actually several advice to make sure you have actually a positive experience:
Not all lashes work along with all eye shapes. I recommend trying out a few different styles to see what works along with your eyes best. Lashes are applied last – apply all eyeshadow, liner, curl lashes and apply mascara before gluing on fake lashes.
Measure and trim: Once you have actually decided on a lash that works finest for you, place the lash on the lid to measure. Line up the inner corners, any amount of lash that exceeds the length of your lash line, must be trimmed off along with small scissors.
Flex Lash: Now that you have actually a good fit, bend and roll the lash strip to help it fit the contour of the eye. I like to wrap it around my makeup brush while I am doing another area of my makeup.
Pick a glue that works for you!! One of my favorites is Estate of lashes. I like both the clear and the black. I recommend trying the clear first and then once you are comfortable along with that, switch to the black glue. Thrive cosmetics is my favorite glue of all time. It holds like a dream! It’s on the pricier end for lash glue, but it’s worth it in my opinion.
It’s additionally important to let your lash glue get a bit tacky on the lash line before applying the false to your skin. If the glue isn’t dry enough, it will slip and slide all over your eye, making it near impossible to apply.
Apply: line up outer corner to outer corner, trying to get the lash as close to the root of the lashes as possible . Stick on outer, middle, then inner.
After false lashes is applied, use a black waterproof liquid liner and go over the lash strip to darken it. The strip is clear, and it’s gonna show on your lash line when you look down or close your eyes, so the black liner is going to make it look way more seamless when you apply it.
Don`t give up! If it doesn`t work on the first try, that`s ok. The glue takes a several seconds to fully set, so you can still adjust them if needed. Practice practice practice.
Lashes: Ardell wispies and Demi Wispies (DW). The Wispies are just a touch longer and more dramatic than the DW. These can be found at most drug stores, WalMart, Target, Sally Beauty Supply, etc. They can also be found online at www.MadameMadeline.com at discount prices. I love these lashes because they are a more luxurious feeling and looking lash without paying the big bucks.
Tweezers: I like to apply lashes along with tweezers but some like to apply along with fingers or a lash applicator. Just practice and see what works finest for you.
