How to apply false eyelashes

False eyelashes can be your best friend and worst enemy. They can be hard to apply, give you difficulties, not look natural, but then they can look amazing, make you feel absolutely beautiful and be very inexpensive if you go to the drug store. Over the years I have become quite skilled at applying them since it became a regular thing during show week when I was dancing. I loved how big and thick they were on stage but they looked completely fake when someone would see me up close. I love my makeup to be done up and beautiful when the time is right but not over the top. I decided to give the small false add ons a try and I'm obsessed. They add just the amount of fullness to give you a little extra something something but do not look over the top!

Before I give you a step-by-step photo tutorial. Here is the before and after pic! Everyone needs one of these to see how wonderful something truly is, it's what convinces you to get them. ;)

Here are the few items you need to make your process as smooth and painless as possible! 
  • Glue
  • Lashes
  • Tweezers
  • Mascara 

First, pour a small drop of glue into the cap so you can easily stick the end of the lash in. 

Grab your lash and hold it in the direction that your lashes flow so you can easily apply it once the glue is on. Dip the end of the lash in the glue and place it where the skin meets the lash. Depending on how short or how few lashes you have will determine the number of add ons you use.  For reference, I used four.

Next, make sure it is placed correctly and adjust as necessary with your tweezers.

Do any adjusting before the glue drys because once it does, they are hard to get off.

For the final touch, use mascara to blend the false lashes with the real ones to give the illusion that they are all your lashes. ;) 

And you're done! It definitely takes patience so don't be frustrated. It took me 3-4 tries on one silly lash. Some will go on perfectly and others wont, just give it time! The end result is pure fabulous!
