It is every girls dream to have thick, full, volumptous eyelashes. For some it comes naturally because they are born with it, for many, they have to purchase it! To simplify the process, we have created a list for you to follow.
First thing you need to do is to find the perfect style and type that you want. You have to decide on the type of eyelashes too. Stripped eyelashes are different than individual lashes. Individual lashes are exactly what they are called. Also known as the flare lashes, they come in different lengths and they are lashes that are applied one by one on the eyelashes for a more natural look, the most popular type are the C curl. While striped lashes are one strip. Often known as the most popular kinds because they are applied in one shot and often have many posh varieties, the length is based on the style.
Second thing you need to do is to measure the false eyelashes. Yes. What you need to do is to measure the false lashes against your eyes. Reason being that everyone have different eye shapes and sizes, for smaller eyes you might need to cut off a few inches off the false eyelashes to make sure it perfectly fit your eyes. Make sure it’s a good quality brand that wont rip off easily when removing the lash strip from the package.
Since most false eyelashes come pre glued, you might only need to glue sparingly if at all a glue is needed. Some prefer to apply the glue to the lash of the eye, Bougiee advise to use precautions while doing this. Since the use of glue is involved, triple check and make sure your glue is has not expired to prevent bacteria buildup which can cause eye infection and also check the ingredients.
The third step is to position the eyelashes on your lash. Before applying, make sure your eye is clean and oil free. Position the lash straight from the lash line focusing on your lash root. For this step some people prefer using an eyelash applicator or tweezer while some pro use their hands. Ensure a steady hand, tilt your head back and look straight in the mirror so you can see your lash roots. Bougiee recommends starting from the outer corner in. It is much acceptable to not have false eyelashes go all the way to the start of the eye than having it stop halfway to the end of the eye. DO NOT APPLY THE FALSE EYELASHES ON YOUR EYELID!!!!
After the third step, allow the false eyelashes to dry, to make sure it is properly positioned, use an eyelash curler to hold the false eyelashes with your lashes, sort of like curling the lashes but what you are doing is holding them together to adhere for a superb finish! Another alternate to dry your eyelashes is a lash blower to speed up the drying process.
Then you want to line the eyes with an eyeliner, liquid preferred to ensure smoothness while lining your eyelashes to make sure your lashes wont strip off while lining. You want to conceal the lash root with the eyeliner. Some people prefer applying eyeliner first but sometimes your false eyelashes may show when you close your eyes giving away the impression you have on falsie’s. Bougiee recommend to use caution while doing this, if you will be wearing smoking eyes, then you can start with a dark tone eyeshadow close to the lash root but that’s about it for pre application of liner of any kind.
Lastly, do not rush the process. You need at least 7 minutes for application. To create the impression of a more fuller lash effect, line the base of the lash line and in between the roots of the lashes, this will create a more fuller lash effect.
To remove, peel the false eyelash from the outer of the eye in. NEVER PULL FROM THE MIDDLE!!!!
