How to apply False Lashes--the Right Way

To apply false lashes, squeeze a small strip of Duo adhesive (available at MAC and Sephora), onto a plastic eye shadow case top.   Roll the strip the strip back and forth to make it straighter, and hold it up to your top lashes to see if they are the correct length.  If they are not the correct length, trim the outer edges only.  Then dip the lash line of the strip along the adhesive, being careful to not apply too much adhesive because if you apply too much, you will have a real mess. (I know this from having it happen to me).  Wait 15 seconds for the adhesive to become tacky, and then apply the lashes one at a time, starting from the inside and moving out.  You need to work quickly before the adhesive dries.  Hold the front and back corners down with 2 fingers so they don’t pop up.  Continue to secure the whole strip, with attention to the ends.  Then apply mascara to join the lashes to your own.  Then apply eyeliner on the top lid to hide the top of the strip.  I have found that liquid liner works best.  To remove, use eye makeup remover, and gently remove the false lashes.  Do not tug, or you’ll remove your own eyelashes.  Just keep applying eye makeup remover until they come off by themselves.

I've never used false lashes but some mascaras give mine the false eyelash look like the Tarte mascara.
