Lights, Camera, Lashes: How to Apply False Lashes Like a Pro

Applying false eyelashes can seem like an impossible task. I get so many complaints from women saying they don’t even try to apply false lashes anymore because it’s just too difficult. But all it takes to get the perfect false eyelash application are a few super simple tips!

I’ve created a quick and easy step-by-step guide for applying false lashes, and it’s probably a lot easier than you might think. A lot of times we think the easiest way to apply false lashes is with your eye closed, but I find that just tilting your head back slightly and lowering the strip of lashes onto your lash line makes for not only easy application, but far more accurate placement, too.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Falsies of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Mascara
  • Lash adhesive
  • Tweezers

And always be sure to place the lashes far enough away from the inner corner of your eye that it won’t poke you when you close your eyes. Once you apply, just close your eyes a few times to make sure you’ve positioned them comfortably.

Watch my video below and remember that applying false eyelashes is something that takes practice!
