False eyelashes have become a popular beauty trend in recent years. They can add volume and length to your natural lashes, creating a dramatic and glamorous look. While many people prefer to have their false eyelashes applied professionally, it is possible to stick them on yourself at home. In this article, we will guide you through the process of sticking false eyelashes yourself.
Choosing the right false eyelashes
The first step in sticking false eyelashes yourself is choosing the right lashes. False eyelashes come in a variety of lengths, volumes, and styles. Some are natural-looking, while others are bold and dramatic. When choosing lashes, consider the occasion and the look you want to achieve.
For beginners, we recommend starting with natural-looking lashes that are not too long or thick. These will be easier to apply and will give you a subtle enhancement to your natural lashes. Once you have more experience with false lashes, you can experiment with bolder styles.
Preparing your natural lashes
Before applying false eyelashes, it is important to prepare your natural lashes. Start by curling your lashes with an eyelash curler. This will help to lift and open up your eyes. Next, apply a coat of mascara to your natural lashes. This will help to blend your natural lashes with the false lashes and create a more seamless look.
Applying lash glue
Once you have chosen your false eyelashes and prepared your natural lashes, it is time to apply the lash glue. Lash glue is a type of adhesive that is specifically designed for false eyelashes. It is important to use a high-quality lash glue to ensure that your false eyelashes stay in place all day.
To apply lash glue, start by squeezing a small amount of glue onto the back of your hand or a clean surface. Then, using a pair of tweezers or a lash applicator, pick up the false lashes and dip the band into the glue. Make sure to apply enough glue to cover the entire band, but not so much that it drips or becomes too messy.
Waiting for the glue to dry
Once you have applied the lash glue to the false eyelashes, it is important to wait for the glue to dry before applying the lashes to your eyes. This will ensure that the lashes stick properly and do not slide around or fall off.
Depending on the type of glue you are using, you may need to wait anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds for the glue to dry. You will know that the glue is ready when it becomes slightly tacky and sticky to the touch.
Applying the false eyelashes
Once the lash glue has dried, it is time to apply the false eyelashes to your eyes. Start by using your fingers or a pair of tweezers to carefully place the false lashes on top of your natural lashes, as close to the lash line as possible. Use your fingers or a clean applicator to press the lashes down and hold them in place for a few seconds.
Adjusting the false eyelashes
If the false eyelashes do not sit perfectly on your lash line, you can use a pair of tweezers or an applicator to adjust them. Carefully lift the lashes and reposition them until they sit comfortably and securely on your lash line. You can also use a small brush or comb to gently brush through the lashes and blend them with your natural lashes.
Once you have applied and adjusted the false eyelashes, it is time to finish off your look. You can apply another coat of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false lashes and create a more seamless look. You can also use eyeliner to fill in any gaps between the lashes and create a more defined look.
Removing false eyelashes
When it is time to remove your false eyelashes, start by gently pulling.
