1. Size the lashes. Before gluing the lashes on, you will need to make sure they are not too wide for your eye. Hold the lash strips up against your eyelid, and trim them down on the sides if necessary.If the lashes are too long for your personal taste, consider trimming the individual lashes down to achieve a more natural look. Lashes should be longer toward the outer corner of the eye.
2. Apply the lash glue to the outer seam of the eyelash strip with an applicator or small brush. Allow the glue to dry for a moment before applying it to your lashes.
Alternatively, you can squeeze a thin line of lash glue onto the back of your non-dominant hand. Then, gently run the outer seam of the eyelash strip along it.
3. Place the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. Bring the strip down from above, not from the front. This is to ensure that you get as close as possible to your lashline.
4. Allow the glue to dry naturally. Once the strip is in place, you do not need to press or hold it
5. Apply mascara to your lashes. This will help blend your natural lashes with the false ones, achieving a more natural look. You can use black, brown, or dark gray mascara.
6. Apply liquid eyeliner along your upper lids. Be sure to fill in any gaps between the false lashes and your own to make them look more natural. Use black, brown, or dark gray liner.
7. Use makeup remover to remove false lashes. Dip a q tip in eye makeup remover and gently rub it along your lash line. Allow the remover to sit for a minute, and gently pull off the strip.
1. Purchase a false lash glue remover. Most false eyelash kits come with eyelash glue, but they don’t often contain glue remover. However, you can find many brands of eyelash glue remover in the beauty department of your local department store. Choose a brand that meets your specific skin requirements; when possible, choose glue remover made by the same company that made the eyelash glue you used.
Always check to make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients.
2. Remove your eye makeup. It’s best to take off your eye makeup prior to using the lash glue remover, as the buildup of makeup on your eyelid can make it more difficult to take off your lashes. Use makeup remover or baby oil to gently wash off your eye makeup. Put a bit of the remover on a cotton pad, and wipe at your eyelid until the majority of the makeup is gone.
Don’t try removing your mascara at this point, if you’re wearing it. This can rip at the false lashes and pull the skin on your eyelids uncomfortably.
Don’t wash your face with soap and water to take off your eye makeup though, as this can damage both your false and natural lashes.
3. Put the glue remover on a cotton swab. Position yourself in front of a mirror, and get out the glue remover and a cotton swab. Put a small dab of the glue remover onto the cotton swab, so that the cotton is completely moistened. The remover may smell faintly like acetone, but this is normal.
4. Apply the glue remover to your false eyelashes. Gently rub your lash line with the cotton swab covered in glue remover. Brush the base of the false eyelashes with the swab several times, to remove as much of the glue as possible. Do this to both eyes, and let it set for 20-30 seconds.
5. Remove the false eyelashes. If you plan on throwing out your false eyelashes, you can use your fingers to pull them off. If you want to save your false eyelashes and reuse them later on, use tweezers to remove them. Grab the false eyelashes as close to your eyelid as possible, starting at the inner corner of your eye. Hold your eyelid to keep your skin from stretching, and then gently tug upwards on them to pull them away from the eyelid. They should remove easily; if there is tension when you try to pull them off, apply more glue remover and wait 30 seconds before trying again.
Make sure that you do not pinch any of your own lashes. If you feel any pain when you start to pull the lashes free, stop pulling and let go of your real lashes.
6. Remove the remaining lash glue. Set aside your false eyelashes, and examine your eyelids. It is likely that there is some residual glue left on your natural lash line which needs to be removed. To do this, put a bit more of the glue remover on the cotton swab, and spread it over the glue that’s remaining. Then, use the dry end of the cotton swab to gently rub off the glue, cleaning your eyelid. Use a bit of warm water and your face wash of choice to finish off the job.
