5 Steps in Applying Falsies

Over the years, I have heard many of the same complaints surrounding False eyelashes. The number one complaint that I hear the most is the frustration around applying False Eyelashes in a way that looks and feels natural. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be a makeup artist or expert to feel comfortable in false eyelashes and look fantastic doing so.

Below, I outline five quick and easy steps to tackling the notorious false eyelashes! 


Step 1: Gently curl lashes 

Start by gently curling your natural eyelashes, followed by curling your falsies if needed. I personally love curling the thin wispy lashes. Next, you will want to apply a very moderate amount of mascara (one or two swipes) to give your false eyelashes a good base! 

Step 2: Measure your false lashes.


Measure your false lashes to your own lashes and cut the outer end of the lash strip. 

If the falsies are longer than your own lashes, you will want to trim them so that they are the exact length as your natural lash line. Check to see if there is plastic sticking out on the inner corner; if so, you will want to make sure to snip that too! This step is crucial to making sure the falsies fit your eye and look natural. 

Step 3: Apply glue to the lash strip

Gently pull your eyelash from its container and hold your lashes by the hair, so the lash strip is exposed. Apply a thin line or layer of Lash Adhesive to the lash strip. Be sure to put a little extra on the lash’s outer ends to ensure it doesn’t lift. Wait about 30 seconds! This is usually the time when I scroll through my Instagram or check my emails. The eyelash glue needs to get tacky before application so that it sticks to the eyelid. Most people skip this crucial step! 

Step 4: Apply Lashes


Now for the tricky part! Hold the mirror under your chin and keep your eyes open. Look down and apply your lashes. Much like applying eyeliner, you will want to get as close to the base of your eyelid as possible. Hold the last down on one end and the other end and secure the lash. Try not to blink for a few seconds, so your eyelash has time to settle on your lids. Repeat this step with your other eye. 

Step 5: Apply mascara to your own lashes 

After you have applied falsies to both of your eyes, it is time to apply mascara to your natural eyelashes. This step is essential to ensure that your lashes and the falsies blend well. The goal is to achieve a natural but dramatic effect, so avoid applying mascara to your falsies.

There you have it! If you have made it through this entire blog post, you should be ready to apply your false eyelashes. Whether it is for a special event or date night with your partner, I hope that you feel confident in your abilities to apply falsies and feel even hotter rocking them.
