Falsies can work wonders in creating the illusion of thicker lashes because not everyone is blessed with naturally thick eyelashes. You may get several things wrong if you’re new to the world of false lashes. So here are a few do’s and don’ts that will guide you in perfecting false lashes.
Do pick a pair that complements the shape of your eyes. If you have smaller eyes, you could get individual lashes that can be applied at the ends of your natural lashes.
Do pick a pair that looks natural and only a bit longer than your real lashes, unless you’re trying to go for a dramatic look.
Do brush your real lashes first, before curling them. This will help to volumize your lashes, both real and false.
Do measure the length of your fake lashes before applying, and adjust accordingly with scissors.
Do use a good quality glue. Research the brands before you buy them.
Do apply mascara and eyeshadow to even out your look.
Don’t wait to place lashes onto your lash line until the glue has firmed up a bit. This will prevent them from sliding around and will save you some frustration.
Don’t get lashes that are too long for your eyes. You don’t want them attacking your eyebrows.
Don’t Yank them off. Instead, use eye makeup remover, and gently separate the false lashes from the real ones.
Don’t use them while you have irritated or infected eyes.
