The easiest way to apply lashes is with an applicator + my eight easy steps. Along with those, you'll need your favorite pair of lashes, lash glue and tweezers.
Before getting started: After you've carefully removed the lashes from the packaging, you'll also need to remove the sticky clear adhesive from the back of the lashes.
- First: Take the lash applicator and grab onto the lashes, about halfway down.
- Two: Apply a thin line of glue along the band of the lashes.
- Three: Now wait. Most recommend you wait 30 seconds, but I use Ardell lash glue and it takes 2-3 minutes to become tacky. If you're using dark-toned glue, you'll notice the color turn dark gray. If you're using clear glue, use the applicator tip to gently touch the lash band to see if the glue has become sticky.
- Note: I take the 4-6 total minutes while the lashes are drying to continue my make up routine, usually foundation and brows. I've always found this saves a lot of time finishing the rest of my look.
- Four: After the glue has become tacky, hold the applicator up to your eye to align where the lashes should be placed on your natural lash line.
- Five: Place the lashes as closely as possible to your natural lash line, putting the most pressure on the center of the lashes.
- Six: Apply pressure to the inner & outer corners.
- Seven: Without tugging the false lashes from your eye, release the applicator and you're done or almost there.
- Note: I say almost because often times I have trouble getting the outer corners to stick to my natural lash line.
- Eight: If above is true for you, use your fingers or tweezers to pinch the lashes onto your natural lash line.
- Then you're done!
- Note: You can also take a liquid black liner to cover the lashes band to help camouflage the lashes.
With practice comes perfection! If you're new to wearing them, I recommend trying this when you've got some time to play with the lashes.
This is my favorite and the absolute easiest way to apply falsies. If you're like me and this is more than a going-out and an every day routine, which way works best for you?
