Have You Tried Wearing False Lashes? Use This Tip!

January 11, 2013 | By | Comments (1)

Have you ever worn fake lashes before? I’ve only tried them once and it was years ago for a Halloween costume, but I feel like they are becoming more common lately for parties, events, or even just a fun night out. And since I’m headed to Alt Summit in a couple of weeks (give me a shout if you’ll be there!), I thought it might be good to know how to apply them.

How to Apply False Lashes

I found some great tips and a video on the blog Pretty Pleased. My favorite piece of advice? When you’re applying them, place a flat hand mirror on a table in front of you and look down into it. This will force your eyes to close fully instead of doing that terrible fluttering/blinking thing when you try to look up into your bathroom mirror.

Take a look at the video, and let me know if you have any other tips for getting false lashes just right.

    The best tip that I have seen is to use a flat eyeliner brush (any cheap one will do…I got mine for just $1) and dip it into the glue, then apply the glue directly to the eyelid where you want to place the lashes. Then, just apply the lash strip onto the glue. I did this New Years Eve, and it worked like a charm!!
