How to Apply False Lashes Like a Pro
Master the art of choosing and applying false lashes -- once and for all -- with this easy-to-follow makeup tutorial
1. Apply a thin line of glue at the base of your strip lashes, and wait a few seconds so the glue has a chance to get tacky. This will help them adhere more easily.
2. Place the lash on the inner corner first and then attach the outer corner so it sits slightly above the natural lash line -- this "cheats" the lash line and gives the illusion of bigger eyes, says McAdams.
3. Wait two minutes for your lashes to dry, then go over them with a dark liner right at the root of your lashes.
4. Curl your lashes (both real and fake) with an eyelash curler. This reduces tension on your eyelids and makes them feel more comfy, says Chang-Babaian. It also prevents them from drooping and making your eyes look heavy.
