How to apply fake eyelashes

How to Apply Fake Eyelashes

This is a simple step-by-step on how to apply fake eyelashes.  Patience is the key.

I’ve tried countless lashes in all shapes, densities and yes, even colours and have discovered that the “Wispies” style is the most universally flattering due to the feathered hairs and tapered corners. Ardell Lashes have been a favourite eyelash of mine for years partly due to the thin, malleable base of the strip lash making for quick and long-lasting adhesion.

Here is a step by step guide to fitting those falsies flawlessly.   If you have any questions, please send me a message on Instagram @suzannemckaybeauty

Fitting Your Falsies

STEP 1

Using tweezers, carefully remove the strip lash from the package, lifting from the outer edge of the lash.

STEP 2

Place the lash (without glue) onto the lash line, lining up the inner corner of the strip lash with your natural inner lashes. Settle the strip onto the base of your own lash line.

STEP 3

If the outer portion of the strip lash extends past the corner of the eyelid, count the amount of lash knots attached to the base of the strip so you know exactly how many knots to remove.

STEP 4

If your lashes are not too long, you’re ready for application. If they ARE too long, carefully remove the excess with scissors.

STEP 5

Trim the corner tips of the lashes meticulously, until the end of the strip lash looks natural. Place back onto your lash line when you are satisfied with the shape.
