Fake Eyelash HELP!

I just bought my first pair of fake eyelashes and I am so excited to wear them! The only problem is I have 0 knowledge on fake eyelashes! I think you have to peel them or something and cover the seam but I don't know how.... So I need all the experts out there to help me out! Thanks a bunch! (and by the way, I know this is not about makeup, but it was the only board that this would  fit into!)

You got the right board, eyes covers everything from makeup to skin treatments to dry eyes, etc!

 

I use the non-self adhesive false eyelashes, I've always had trouble with the self-sticking kind, though lots of people use them, obviously.

 

For regular lashes, I put a tiny (Really tiny!) amount of glue on the band of the lash, allow to dry for 20-30 seconds (test the drying speed of your glue first on a scrap of business card or some non-absorbent surface to get a handle on how long it takes to set up). Then position the lash strip using tweezers to the right place (not on top of your real lashes, just slightly above).  If you stick them to your real lashes they look odd and don't stay on as well. Allow the glue to set up, then brush a coat of mascara over the falsies + your real lashes to blend. Line you eyes a little thicker than usual to help hide the band and you're done!  Practice makes perfect.

 

Good luck!
