Ah, false lashes. There’s nothing like ’em if you want to up your bold-makeup game. You know the type – thick at the base, fluffy in the middle, and tapered at the ends for a dramatic flutter. Whether you’re looking for an extra ‘oomph’ for a special occasion, or just want to try something new, falsies can be just the ticket.
But before you grab a pair and go wild with the glue, there are some crucial steps you need to take. First off, you gotta get the right kind of supplies. And not just any pair of false eyelashes will do – you have to check they fit your eye shape too. Don’t worry, though! With this guide, you’ll be wowing the crowds with your bold look in no time.
Prep Work: Gather Your Supplies
Time to get busy! Before applying your false lashes, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got all the right materials –– eyelash glue, tweezers, eyeliner and mascara, as well as your false lashes of choice.
If you don’t already have a good quality adhesive for your falsies, make sure you pick one up. When it comes to creating the bold look we’re after, the wrong glue can be the difference between success and failure. It should be strong enough to hold the false lashes in place without tugging on your real lashes, and should also be easy to remove afterwards.
You may want to grab a pair of tweezers, too. This will make it easier to control the placement of the false lashes along your lash line so that they look natural and seamless. And, if you’re feeling fancy, some glittery makeup is always a nice touch.
Applying the False Lashes
So, you’ve got your supplies and trimmed your false lashes. Now it’s time to get ‘em on there with glue. First things first: don’t be shy—soak your eyelash glue liberally before brushing it along the top of your lash line. Don’t worry if a few drops escape, just make sure there’s enough glue for those falsies to stick. Then, let those babies rest atop your lash line for about thirty seconds or so, until the glue is nice and tacky.
Once it’s ready, place the false lash along your natural lash line, as near to it as possible. Secure it in place with your fingers, squeezing your natural lashes together with the fake ones. That’s when that initial “Wow!” moment kicks in. Whoa, Mama! You look fantastic. But wait, there’s one more thing.
To give your bold look some oomph and really cement those falsies in place, grab your trusty tube of mascara and coat both sets of eyelashes. This will ensure no gaps between your real and false lashes, creating the softest look of perfection. Ta-dah! Rejoice in all your glam glory. You’re done.
Now that your false lashes are secure, we can get to the fine details. To really make it pop and create a bold look, you’ve gotta add mascara to your lashes. That way, you’ll blend your natural and false lashes together, so it looks seamless and like you were born with luscious lashes. Plus, the smoky eye effect from the mascara will give an even more dramatic finish.
When you’re done with the mascara application, take a look in the mirror and make sure there’s no excess glue or makeup left on your eyelids. Gotta finish the job right! A Q-tip soaked with some remover is great for this. No one ever needs to know you were wearing false lashes—just let them wonder!
Phew! You’ve done it. After all that hard work, you’ve successfully been able to rock the bold look with false lashes like a pro. Scoring this glamorous makeup look puts you on a whole new level of fab – nobody else is gonna have anything on you.
Let’s recap your steps: First, you gathered up the supplies needed to apply false lashes. Then, you trimmed them up so they were the right size for your eyes. Afterwards, it was time to get gluing. After applying the eyelash glue properly, you placed the falsies right along your lash line then secured them with your fingers. Lastly, you gave your lashes a nice blend with some mascara and made sure to clean off any extra glue or makeup residue.
Seriously – don’t be afraid to give yourself a round of applause. Achieving a bold look with false lashes is no easy feat and you did it with ease! Now you’ve got that red-carpet-ready look. Let ’em stare – you know you look stunning.
False Lash Look FAQ
How can I make my eyelashes look bolder?
For a bold look with false lashes, first and foremost it’s important to pick a high-quality set that are thick, full, and long. Make sure they are lightweight and not too stiff, and look for a pair that fits your eye shape.
Once you have the perfect lashes, you’ll want to apply the adhesive glue according to the directions. Make sure to apply the glue evenly and let it sit for a few seconds so it becomes more sticky.
When you’re ready to apply the lashes, grab them by the base and be sure you have them lined up with the right eye. If you mess up, you can start over and if you find that you’ve applied them crookedly, use an eyelash curler to help them look even.
To finish off, use an eyeliner to line your eyes and create fullness. This will help to make the lashes look more natural and blend in with your natural lashes. To really add drama, go with a dramatic black or dark brown eyeliner, but remember to blend it in with a smudger so it doesn’t look too harsh.
With some patience and the right technique, you can easily get a bold look with false lashes. So go ahead and give it a try!
How can I make my fake eyelashes look better?
I’m gonna let ya in on a little secret – using false lashes to get that bold look is really easy once you’ve got the hang of it! First, measure the lash against your eye to make sure it’s not too long. Then, apply a thin line of eyelash glue along the base of the lash, before waiting 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky. Once that’s done, place the lash directly onto your lash line, and press it gently with your fingertips.
To ensure that the false lash stays in place, you should use an eyelash curler to curl your natural and fake lashes together. This will help to blend them and create a more natural result. It’s also important to avoid tugging or pulling on the lashes. If you want to add even more definition to your eyes, you can use a good volumizing mascara to give your lashes a fuller look.
Finally, if you want to make your bold false lashes even more dramatic, you can use a dark eyeliner to line your upper and lower eyelid. Be sure to blend the eyeliner with your natural lashes, to achieve a seamless finish.
How do you make fake eyelashes fluffier?
I’m no eye-makeup expert but I do have a few tips for making your false lashes look bolder. First and foremost, use a thicker mascara to coat the full lash, from base to tip. This will help to create more dimension and bulk up the appearance. Then, use a curler to help lift and fan the lashes out, giving them an even fuller look. Finally, apply a coat of volumizing mascara to the tips of the lashes to create a dramatic finish. If you really want to amp up the effect, you can use a lash enhancer – this can help to thicken and lengthen your lashes, giving them a bold and beautiful look.
