Have you ever wanted to try false eyelashes or eyelash extensions but haven’t been able to figure out how to actually put them on?
Here’s a quick step-by-step tutorial on how to put on your own fake eyelashes during your makeup routine, 3 tips you should really know, and 5 new styles you have to try!
How to Put On Eyelashes Yourself at Home:
Coming from an eyelash pro of 10 years, putting on your own eyelashes comes easy with practice and patience.
First of all, you will need the eyelashes and lash glue. Optionally you can also use an eyelash applicator to help you place the lashes without using your bare hands. This is more sanitary, but if you are new to false eyelashes you might want to wait until you have the technique down before using sharp tools by your eyes!
So maybe just wash your hands thoroughly before starting to be safe…
Step 1: Prep Lashes
Take one lash out of the packaging. You may want to measure the lash by placing it on your eye without glue first and seeing if the ends extend past the edge of your eye. If so, you can cut the excess with small, clean scissors. Do the same to the other lash.
Step 2: Apply
Apply glue to the inner lash line of the eyelash. Wait 15 seconds while the glue gets stickier then place along your own lash line. Repeat with the other eye.
Step 3: Adjust & Secure
Take a look in the mirror and make sure both lashes are even, with all edges glued down right. You may need to apply a bit more eyelash glue in the inner or outer edges to secure them, or in the middle if you see gaps in the adhesive.
Instantly complete your look with your new pair of lashes whether it’s all you have on with your casual day clothes or completing your glamorous look on that special occasion – a nice pair of eyelashes go with anything.
Now, are you wondering where to get some?
We might know just the place: SM Dance Fashion, a premium brand of dancewear has just released their new line of top-quality lashes. Amid the pandemic, this company has had to rethink how they help women out there feel confident, get the products they need, and overall keep a positive outlook.
These lashes were made for dancing….
The company is known for sourcing high-quality dresses, accessories, and practice wear for professional sports dancers. Their brand is literally worn on the stages of high-stakes dance competitions all over the world, so you can trust that these lashes are made to last while they look stunning enough to break necks.
Their lashes are made from premium natural fibers to give them the most natural look and feel, as well as a soft cotton lash band for all-day comfort. As a pretty neat bonus – they are packaged in reusable storage containers for storing in the most sanitary way.
Eyelashes are usually reusable for multiple uses, as long as you keep them clean and store them in the packaging when you are not wearing them.
Here are a couple of tips you should know:
- Ideally, keep them dry because the glue does not last long after they get wet.
- You might also want to just carry the eyelash glue with you in case the edge needs regluing, it’s normal for them to need adjustment after a couple of hours of wearing.
- When you take them off, remove the old glue before storing it back in the box so they can stay clean.
