Are false eyelashes difficult to apply? But how nice is it to have the look of a fawn, elongated and intense? Here's how to apply them easily and quickly!
Hi Giudy! Can I say it openly? I agree with you, false eyelashes are not easy to use, at least at the beginning. We need to get carried away and also learn to choose the ones that best suit our eye. In fact, not all are suitable, but we will talk about this topic another time, otherwise this answer becomes too long!
Applying them at the beginning is not easy, but once you take your hand, unless you have a bad day, it becomes quite automatic, as with eyeliner. First of all, my advice is to choose the accent or false eyelashes to be applied only to the outer corner of the eye. They are a middle ground between those with a single tuft, difficult to position, above all to create a thickening that does not look like a cobbled effect, and full band lashes, more difficult to manage because they are more rigid. They are about half an eye long or slightly less, often have a very natural effect and stretched outwards. Therefore perfect with every type of look, even the most natural and everyday ones. Often, then, they have the band (i.e. the area where the eyelashes are attached) very thin or transparent, so they are more flexible and easy to position. Alternatively, if you don't find those already short on the market, you can buy a pair of false eyelashes and cut them in half, so as to obtain 4 different tufts to be applied at will.
Still on the topic of bandwidth, this too is a question to be reckoned with when choosing false eyelashes. In fact, the thinner it is, the more false eyelashes will be softer and more manageable. The thinner bands are often transparent, but it also happens to find them black. Usually they are very natural types of eyelashes, because for very voluminous or 3D effect eyelashes, with many more hairs, you need a structure that supports them more. The thinner it is, the less it will feel on the eye, so it is a more comfortable option, especially to get started. In addition to being lighter it is more mobile, so you won't have the heavy feeling of something on the eye.
As for the glue, the most famous for the application is the Duo glue. For work I often use the blue version, while on myself I prefer the green one, I find that, having the brush, it makes the application easier and also does not contain latex, which could lead to irritation in allergic subjects. There are stronger glues, which attack more, but to start I do not recommend them because they are difficult to remove and the risk is to remain with residues attached to the eyelashes for days. The first big mistake that is made by applying false eyelashes, in fact, is that of not dosing the glue, often by applying an exaggerated quantity. The result? Aside from the fact that it may end up in the eye, it never dries and thus makes application more difficult.
To apply false eyelashes, with almost all glues, it is necessary to wait from 30 seconds to a minute for the glue to dry slightly. This is the perfect time to proceed: applying them with too fresh glue they will move and it will be difficult to keep them in place, while if too dry they will not stick. To apply them you can use simple tweezers for the eyebrows, with which to keep the false eyelashes close to the hairline, without however touching the glue. Keeping the eye open but slightly lowered, position them in the center and then attach the internal and external corners. To facilitate application, then, there are also specific longer tweezers, which better support false eyelashes.
Last tip, not to be underestimated, is the size and especially the length of the eyelashes to be applied. Before gluing them, remember to measure them: too long eyelashes will be annoying on the eye, because they will not stick well but, above all, will tend to detach at the corners. Furthermore, you will notice that they are badly attached and will give the look a strange air. The same goes if they are cut too short, the detachment with natural lashes will be very noticeable and, at what point, it is better to shorten them again and apply them only to the outer corner. Be careful also to cut them only on the outside: the shorter part always goes to the inside corner, so as not to bother, and shortening them from that side then you risk having too long an inside corner. As a last step, apply a veil of mascara on the natural lashes and, with your fingers, press them lightly on the fake ones, so as to hide them.
