The Best False Eyelashes for Every Occasion

by | Nov 27, 2019 | Makeup

False eyelashes are the perfect addition to any makeup look. Whether you want to add just a touch of glamour to your normal day-to-day makeup look, or some serious drama to your smokey eye makeup – there’s a style of false lashes for any occasion. However, not all lashes are made equal and it can be difficult to find the best false eyelashes to suit your needs, so we’ve rounded up some of the best false eyelash brands and picked out some of their best offerings to take the stress out of choosing your next pair of lashes.

How to Apply False Lashes

When it comes to applying false eyelashes, the fear (and stress!) of applying them often leads people to just go without and invest in a good mascara, or enlist the help of a professional makeup artist. 

Although it can be a little fiddly, once you’ve got the hang of applying false eyelashes you’ll be able to apply them in no time at all – and avoid any disasters!

Step 1 

The first step to applying false eyelashes is to measure the lash against your own lash line before cutting it to size. 

Simply grab a pair of tweezers and measure the eyelash against your lash line, before trimming it from the inside of the lash with a pair of nail scissors. Make sure you only trim it bit by bit, as you don’t want to end up taking too much off and ending up with a lash that’s too short! 

Step 2

Once you’ve cut your lashes to size, add a little bit of eyelash glue to the band of the lashes and set them to one side to let the glue dry. 

The biggest mistake people make when applying false lashes is trying to put the lash on before the glue has dried sufficiently, leading to the lash lifting at the corners and not sliding all over the place. Instead, leave the glue to dry for a couple of minutes until the glue is almost dry and this will make applying your lash much easier. 

Step 3

The third and final step is to apply your lash to your lid. Hold the strip lash in the centre using your fingers or tweezers before pressing as close to the lash line as possible. During this step, it helps to look down into a mirror to get the perfect placement. 

Make sure both ends of the lashes are stuck down properly to ensure they don’t ping up throughout the day, and you’re ready to go!
