“How to achieve an intense gaze with false eyelashes.”
How to apply false eyelashes like a true professional?
Eyes have always been a significant asset in feminine allure. Fluttering long, voluminous, and curved lashes can be incredibly glamorous. Indeed, generously endowed lashes make our gaze intense and slightly sophisticated. Leading brands offer us mascara that promises to exceptionally lengthen and volumize our lashes. However, the results can sometimes be disappointing due to clumpy lashes. So why not try false eyelashes to achieve doe-like eyes? Applying false eyelashes is not as difficult as it may seem. It just takes a bit of practice for a guaranteed stunning effect. Let’s take a look at the materials we need for this operation and the step-by-step application.
- A pair of false eyelashes
- Special adhesive, available in specialized stores
- Some brands offer a complete eyelash kit, including the adhesive.
- Eyelash curler
- Makeup applicator sticks
- Clean and dry mascara spoolie brush
- Mascara (an optional final touch)
Applying False Eyelashes:
Start by curling your natural lashes with an eyelash curler. It’s best to work with clean, mascara-free, and curled lashes. Using tweezers, grasp the false eyelashes at the base and then apply the special adhesive to them. Gently place them between your natural lashes, being careful not to position them above or below your natural lashes. The false lashes should be distributed one by one or, at most, in groups of three among your natural lashes. Be cautious not to blink too much during the approximately 5-minute drying time of the adhesive. You can blend the lash roots with an eyeliner pencil. Untangle the lashes with a clean, dry mascara spoolie brush. If you wish, you can apply a coat of liquid mascara as a final touch. It’s always an optional step that can make a difference. In this case, ensure that the mascara doesn’t adhere to all of your lashes. The false lashes and natural lashes should blend seamlessly.
As with any makeup application, touch-up is an important step to correct any issues. If one or more false lashes come loose or go awry, don’t panic! Simply delicately remove the adhesive residue and reapply using tweezers. You can also use a thin makeup applicator stick with a small dab of adhesive. During this process, be careful not to pull too hard on the roots and focus mainly on the tips.
For those who find this process too delicate, there are always “Lash Bars.” Modeled after the concept of “Nail Bars,” these establishments offer walk-in services without requiring appointments, and they won’t break the bank. Typically, you only pay for the purchase of false eyelashes. The application and advice are free. Visiting a “Lash Bar” is a great idea to acquire some hands-on experience and guidance. You can easily refine your skills on your own afterward.
