Get Stripped... With Lashes

Applying Eyelashes with Ease...

Applying false eyelashes can easily make or break your big night out and you know we're talking from experience when we say that. Unfortunatley strip lashes are tricky, but you can learn! There are many factors to false lash application, including your eye shape, how you remove your lashes from their box and that's before we've even got to trimming and glue application.

The Unboxing

To remove, peel them from the outer edge, never from the inner corner. If you bend one section of lashes on the outside it doesn't matter as you can trim them off to fit your eyes. If you bend or break the lash from the inner corner, it does matter. Gently tease the strip out using your fingers or tweezers and rest the lashes back in the box.

Measuring Up

Rest the strip along your lash line to see whether you need to trim it to size. The strip should start where your natural bulk of eyelashes begin, if you start too close to the inner corner it will irritate your eyes. To mark where your strip lashes should end, go to the outer corner and count 2-4 lashes inwards and snip. Match the other lash. If you leave them hanging over, it can pull eyes down.

The Glue

Dot a thin layer of glue, straight from the adhesive applicator, along the vein of the lash, from corner to corner. Wait a few seconds for it to go sticky before applying.

Remember to apply them where your natural bulk of eyelashes begin. Look down and press the strip lash against your lash line in the centre, the outer edge and then inner corner.

Building That Bond

Pinch and push your natural lashes and the false lashes together, with your index finger & thumb, so they set well. Squeeze the strip lash down onto the natural lashes so you don't end up with a strip of skin between your lashes and the false lashes. If you want to create more uplift with your lashes, finish by gently pushing against the lashes at the edge of the inner lash line.
