I love the look, but don’t have access to a makeup artist for my engagement pics. I was thinking about trying it myself. If worse comes to worse I’ll use the strip lashes. Anyone have success doing this on themselves?

They’re really easy to apply actually. I would say easier than normal strip eyelashes. I would suggest finding a good youtube tutorial and practicing before hand though!

I have had zero success-even with strip lashes. One side always looks awesome and the other side always looks wonky. Do you have a friend who is good with make up that could help?

I always just use the strip lashes but I would guess the single ones would be a lot easier.
When is your e-shoot? Could you pratice putting them on for a few days and just wear them to work?

I usually recommend the individual lashes to ladies who aren’t used to wear fake lashes and/or want a more natural look. They’re easier to apply as you don’t have to worry about the lash band not blending in with your natural lash line, and you can fill in your lashes so that both sides “match” without people looking at you and going “oh, nice falsies!” Just make sure you have a good lash glue (I like DUO) and that your false lashes are the right length for you – they come in a variety of lengths, but I wouldn’t go more than medium unless your natural lashes are much longer than the average person’s 😉
Oh, and practice practice practice is key! They’re less uncomfortable than strip lashes, but you do need to try it a few times to figure out where you want to place the lashes and how much glue to use. Remember to let the glue get a bit tacky before applying, rather than applying them right away as they tend to slip and slide all over when the glue is still wet.

I have never been able to apply the strip lashes but I’ve gotten pretty good with the individual ones. I use tweezers to apply them so I can get them precisely where I want them. I think the key is to dip the end in glue and then wait and kinda blow on the glue till it dries a little and gets slightly tacky because if it’s fresh wet glue it is harder to apply.
I also apply them after I put on my eyeshadow but before I put on my macara and eyeliner. I like to have a bare lash line so I can see where I’m placing the lashes and get them as close to my natural lashes as possible. Once the glue is totally dry I then put on eyeliner and mascara. I like using mascara after the lashes are applied because it blends them with my own lashes better.
It only took me a couple times of practicing to get good with the individual ones but I’ve tried the strip ones on several occasions and never had success.

I think they’re much easier to apply than the strip of lashes. It took a lil practice but I use them often enough and I’ve gotten it down. I just have glue and tweezers and place them a tiny bit apart from each other. Just be sure to have lash remover. If not, unless you’re willing to let them fall of naturally, you could lose a few real lashes!

I tried doing it and I don’t think I applied enough glue but they held for a night! It wasn’t easy! I used the Revlon strip ones…

I hate putting on the strip ones! i seriously think there is something wrong with the shape of my eyes…i can never get them to look as good as the makeup gurus on youtube! I am thinking i will try the individual ones next time.

I can never get them on. Like a PP said, usually I get the first one on and then the second one won’t sit right. It’s not as easy as it seems. But I’m not good with makeup as it is.
