Top Tips for Applying Lashes
After you’ve chosen your fave lash style, you need to perfect the fit. Sans glue gently measure the strip lash against your eye lid and then cut to the correct shape/length – this will avoid any overhang and lifting of the false lash.
Before you attempt to place them, we suggest bending the lashes a little to soften the band. This definitely equals easier application and a more natural look. How? Just bend the lash in a C shape for the most natural curve.
Gently grip the false lash using the lash applicator (it’s much easier than trying to use your fingers) and apply a line of glue to the band. Leave the glue for about 15 seconds before application. This allows for the glue to get a little bit tacky, and results in easier application. Remember the white glue dries clear!
Apply the lashes along the natural lash line - to the actual lash and not to the eye lid – place the centre first and then work to the inner/outer corners.
Repeat! It’s just as simple as that. Do the exact same thing on the other side. It should be a cinch, you’ve already done it once before!
Even if after this handy guide you are still not up for trying fake lashes or you’re looking for a more understated look, we’ve got two just as fabulous alternatives. 1000 Hour’s Heated Eyelash Curler is super easy to use and is perfect for on the go fabulousness. All you have to do is switch the power on and after 15 seconds start lifting up your lashes with a small amount of pressure. This will make lashes appear longer and open up your eyes. We know you’ll be impressed.
Option 2 is RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum. This gives you a natural approach to enhanced and enriched lashes and all you have to do is commit four weeks of your life for long luscious lashes. Worth it for sure ?
For best results apply RapidLash to the base of the eyelashes using the applicator wand. But beforehand make sure your eye is fresh and clean of makeup, creams and everyday dirt. Start on the inner corner of your eye and move outwards as close to the base of the eyelash as possible. For the best results we recommend using it once daily before you turn in for the night.
