beauty how-to: FALSE LASHES

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Hey elfette! Are your lashes looking thin or short? If you've been dying to learn how to apply falsies, here's your chance to learn and try them out! They come in so many different shapes and sizes at e.l.f. Cosmetics, and with a little practice you will be able to put them on in a few short minutes. Get your lashes to flutter and fly with this tutorial!

Gently remove the first lash from the package, (I usually use my pointer finger to press down on the lash hair and pull it away from the plastic/adhesive). Hold the false lash to your natural lash line, in order to see if it will fit properly or if it needs trimming. Most lashes need trimming to look realistic and fit your eye properly. To trim, remove the lash from your eye and cut from the OUTSIDE EDGE as needed. Cutting from the shorter side will leave your false lash on the dramatic side and it will become difficult to blend in to your natural hair.

Trim the other lash according to the size you trimmed the first one. You can do so by holding them together or by using the piece cut from first lash, to show you how much the other one will be trimmed. Then, apply the e.l.f. Lash Glue to the rim of the band. Allow the glue to get tacky for a few seconds before applying, or it will be too liquidy. 

Using a set of e.l.f. Tweezers grip the lash and begin to apply towards the center of your eye. Once you feel the center is as close to your lash line as possible, begin to push in the rest of your false lash and adjust quickly to fit your eye shape. 

Finish off the false lashes with a great mascara, like the e.l.f. Studio 3-in-1. This brush allows you to apply mascara in small sections and comb through to blend the false with the natural for a seamless look. I also like to apply a thin line of black liquid liner onto the eye after the lash is applied, so that any glue can be hidden and the lash line looks cleaner!
