How To Apply False Eyelashes

Hi, I am Katrina Szish. Today we're going to explore the art of applying fake eyelashes. It's not as hard as you think. As you can see there are many options for false eyelashes and most of them are available at your local drugstore all for about under $5.00. Now my personal favorites are the Ardell Fashion Lashes. And these are demis that look a little bit 1960s inspired. You can also get them lighter and fluffier. But whatever your mood, whatever the occasion Ardell definitely has something for you. Now these are Revlon, they also have similar looks, similar selections. And Elite has eyelashes. These are the individual ones. You just put a few of them on the corners of your eyes. But these are very difficult. They take a steady hand, so we're not going to talk about those today. Your best bet as a first timer is to go for the strips. Now the most important thing to remember is Duo eyelash adhesive is the best way to adhere any eyelashes you choose. Don't go with those little glue packages that come inside the eyelashes, they're a little bit harsh on the eyes. The Duo is very sensitive and it also comes in a dark tone, which you should always use, because it further enhances your eyes and makes them look even more gorgeous. OK. So let's get started. Now the first thing you have to do, although it may sound a little bit strange, is properly remove the eyelashes from their case. The most important thing to remember is these eyelashes have a little bit of adhesive on the back, so you have to remove it very carefully or you may lose some of the lashes. So starting on the outside edge, just very carefully and slowly pull the lash off and away from the backing. The first thing you do is you want to make sure that the eyelash isn't too long for your eye. And you do that simply by placing the lash exactly where you want it to be. You can hold it in place just like that. And you can see that it fits. Now it's a little bit too long it can be uncomfortable. So what you want to do is get some scissors and clip a little bit off the end, just one little lash at a time, so that it doesn't get too short. But usually, I recommend buying the demi lashes because they're a little bit shorter and then you don't have to bother with trimming at all. It's important to remember, that there actually is a left eyelash and a right eyelash just like a pair of shoes. So the way to remember which is which is very simple. Only take one eyelash out of the container at a time and then hold the eyelash container up in the mirror. And you can see the one you took off on the right goes on your right eye and the one on the left goes on your left eye. Now this may sound obvious, but if you take them both off at the same time it's very hard to determine which lash goes on which eye. So once you have determined the right or the left, I have my right here, it's time to add the glue. So basically, what you do is hold your lash in one hand, unscrew you're Duo adhesive glue with the other, and you're going to apply the glue very delicately, just a tiny bit, right on to the lash line itself. Always start at one end, just like this, squeeze very gently on the tube. Make sure you don't get big blobs you don't want it to come out too fast. And then just very gently run the glue along the edge of the eyelash. If you don't have enough, the eyelash won't stick. But if you have too much it will get very gloopy. So this might take a little bit of practice. OK. Now once you have the glue applied, you need to wait about 30 seconds. Because if you put it on right away the eyelash won't stick. While we wait for the glue to dry, here's one more tip. Eyelashes are disposable. Wear them once and throw them away. OK. You want to wait for the glue to dry, again, about 30 seconds. And when it seems a little bit sticky it's time to put the eyelash on. All you do is line it up with your eyelid. You want the far end of the lash to be right where your own eyelashes end. And you just lightly, gently press it on and hold it in place so it has time of for the sticking action to work. Now you can see this is on, but I want to let it dry. Sometimes you want to make sure that the edges definitely are pressed in place. So what I recommend doing is taking the crimped end of your Duo surgical adhesive tube and just holding it on the edge of your lash line focusing particularly on the outside corner and then on the inside corner. Because if those two points are set, your eyelashes will definitely stay. And once you hold that for about five to ten seconds, you're all set. And there you go. So after you practice this just a few times, you'll be able to go from plain Jane to totally gorgeous in under five minutes.
