According to the instructions on the back of adhesive boxes, false lash application takes just three simple steps:
Anyone who's ever tried applying false eyelashes for the first time knows it's not this easy.
The more curved the lash band is, the easier the lashes are to apply. And don't worry if you think you overdid it; it's actually a lot easier to apply a severely curved false eyelash onto your eyes rather than try to pin down both ends of a lash that is too straight.
Oil makes it hard for the adhesive to bond to the lash band and to your eyes; it's like trying to make tape stick onto a greasy forehead. If you have naturally oily eyelids, blot the excess oil with oil blotting sheets. If you're re-using your lashes, make sure you never remove them with oil-based makeup remover as the oil will stay lodged within the lash band, making it hard for you to glue them back on at a later time.
If you're new to false lashes, mirror placement and stability make a huge difference when it comes to successful application. Most people apply their lashes while standing in front of their bathroom mirror or sitting at their vanity, and that's usually where the trouble starts.
Accent lashes/demi lashes/half lashes are a beginner's best friend. They're shorter in width (they only cover the outer half of your eye or less), so they'll stick onto your eyes much more quickly and easily than when you're handling full strip lashes.
If you're in love with a pair of full strip lashes, but can't seem to get them on correctly, try cutting them up in two or three sections.
